    Most water resistant fabrics have a silicon or fluoropolymer hydrophobic coating. These lose their effectiveness over time, but can be reactivated to some degree by heat.

    The nanosphere treatment has a very fine texture that acts as a disruptive surface and prevents dirt and water from sticking. It is designed to be longer lasting than hydrophobic coatings, but it will still wear out in time.

    My experience of dryskin is that it is tough and abrasion resistant, except against itself. There are a lot of variations on the fabric so you would need to know exactly which version it is. I had a pair of dryskin pants with the fabric containing cordura fibres. Worst pants I ever had. They pilled terribly through the crotch as the fabric was extremely abrasive against itself, but worse still they abraded anything worn against them. Wore through the hem of a softshell jacket after just a few wears.

    That is one knowledgeable rock! When I asked Outlier before they said about 3 years of regular wear is when elastine pants lose shape and nanosphere wear out. 'So what happens after then?' They said after that they become a good looking regular pants. :D

    I just dropped $1200 at ISAORA on the 29th, then I waltz over to SuFu on the 1st to find that ISAORA had a 40% off promotion on the 29th. FUCK!

    Buying Isaora at retail is a huge mistake, all there garments go on sale every season at 40%+

    Speaking of ISAORA, their IO line wasnt included in the sale today which said entire collection. I guess IO is a whole other thing. I have a jacked from the IO line which I like a lot.


    Share whatcha bought at least! What you get and how you like it?

    their black friday code only covered what they call the isaora collection (main line) which is separate from io (basics range).
