DexShell Materials

Technology & Materials used to build the DexShell range of waterproof products are the well thought and designed to offer you an experience to remember.
Along with the advanced construction methods, the answer lies in DexShell's use of performance materials – some of which are exclusive to DexShell.


Porelle® Membranes.

Waterproof and breathable, the Porelle® membrane that DexShell uses has Water Vapour Permeability (WVP) index 15,000 g/m2.day ASTM E96:95. The membrane is also resistant to a range of chemicals and weak acids, and passed the viral penetration test ISO 16604 made by Nelson Labs.
Porelle membranes are manufactured by PIL Membranes Ltd with over 40 years of experience in the marketplace. Porelle® is the registered trademark of KL Technologies Group Limited.

Repreve® Recycled Yarns.

REPREVE® is the world’s No.1 brand of recycled performance fiber. REPREVE‘s high-quality fibers are made from 100% recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles and pre-consumer waste. They are also certified and traceable. The REPREVE® brand was created to foster a sustainable world by diverting plastic bottles-billions of them-from landfills and oceans. REPREVE also collects and reuses industrial waste, starting with their own. Compared to virgin fiber, REPREVE helps to offset the use of petroleum, emitting fewer greenhouse gases and conserving water and energy in the process.

Merino Wool.

Warm, breathable, moisture-repellent and anti-static, Merino has the capacity to deal with moisture like no other yarn, absorbing perspiration and releasing it into the air as vapour. It is naturally odour resistant too. Luxuriously soft and gentle against the skin, it reacts to your body’s temperature, keeping you warm when it’s cold and releasing body heat and moisture when it’s hot. The natural elasticity and resilience of Merino wool enable it to spring back into shape with ease.
DexShell only purchases and uses merino wool that is guaranteed mulesing-free.



Coolmax® Yarns.

COOLMAX® is a performance yarn that includes an effective fiber-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, through the fabric, and transfer out of the wear. It can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and much more comfortable.
COOLMAX® is the registered trademark of Invista®.



DriRelease® Technology.

drirelease® technology uses an engineered blend of multi-denier, multi-staple length hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibers to keep wearers dry, cool and comfortable. The unique blend of synthetic and natural fibers in drirelease® yarn actually accelerates the water release rate. The drirelease® WOOL blend is as warm as 100% wool without the itch. The wearer never feels clammy against the skin.
The drirelease® DriFil is a new technology that optimizes both comfort and durability. drirelease® is the registered trademark of Optimer Brands.
