Breatha-tex Stealth Fabric
Breatha-tex Stealth fabric is a silent, durable high-tech fabric that is designed to be completely waterproof and windproof yet remain capable of breathing. The membrane of the fabric will evaporate any sweat to the outside, moderating your body temperature to keep you dry and comfortable. Breatha-tex Stealth fabric technology is used on our Hunters range of clothing and is available in our English Oak Evolution pattern.
Vibram soles have been specifically designed to offer maximum performance, comfort and durability to even the most demanding user.

Breathable garments allow a certain amount of moisture and vapour to be released. Levels of breathability range from 1000-25000 and is measured by how many grams of water vapour are able to pass through a fabric in 24 hours. Moisture vapour transmission relies on the existence of a temperature/pressure gradient between the inside and outside of the breathable layer. In other words, the fabric works by equalising the pressure and heat between the inside and outside of the garment. Once body moisture reaches the inner face of the garment, it must pass through the fabric and then evaporate on the surface. If the rate of transmission is slower than the rate of extra vapour condensation can form on the inside. Breathable garments will not “stop” you sweating or producing moisture. This is a natural response. Breathable garments do allow drying to happen more quickly. Breathable garments work best at preventing condensation build up if they are reasonably tight fitting. This is because if the mid and outer layers are not in contact then moisture can come into contact with cooler pockets of air, promoting condensation on the inside. Breathable garments work best with manmade undergarments rather than cotton. This is because of the better wicking qualities taking and keeping the moisture away from the body.
Jackets and trousers with waterproof ability are the first step to staying dry in difficult conditions outdoors. You probably have seen manufacturers using different numbers to describe the garment’s waterproof level. In the case of 10,000 mm fabric, if you put a square tube with inner dimensions of 1” x 1” over a piece of said fabric, you could fill it with water to a height of 10,000 mm before water would begin to leak through. The higher the number, the more waterproof the fabric. However, the truth is that all outerwear designed for active use has various degrees of water resistance, but will eventually leak given enough water, time and pressure. It is generally recommended that a minimum waterproof rating of 5,000 mm is used for winter sports jackets and trousers. Anything between 5,000 mm and 10,000 mm is a good choice for riders and fieldsports enthusiasts who spend long days out in rainy weather conditions. It is worth knowing that while a 20,000 mm rating may sound impressive, a hard day of riding in wet conditions with the added pressure of wind sitting and falling puts even the most waterproof fabrics to the test. Why do we choose to use membranes to waterproof our clothing? The main reason is that coated clothing lack breathability and can get uncomfortable after prolonged use. From our experience, if you're looking for a versatile and durable garment, you'll want clothing with our 100% polyester brushed tricot with laminated membrane. The job of keeping the water out is left to the membrane, which has tiny holes too small to let liquid water enter but large enough to allow water vapor to escape.
