The MTHD Tundra NeoShell 3L Pant is a relaxed fit silhouette in a performance fabrication that balances lightweight, breathable, durable, and waterproof with mechanical stretch. This multi-season technical outer layer will be your go-to for all your cross-category outdoor pursuits.
3-layer construction means a waterproof membrane is laminated to an outer face fabric as the exterior and a lightweight “lining” material as the interior. Each textile layer has its own function. When combined as one, these textiles work together as a precise operating unit for the best performance. “Shell” outerwear garments are the last layer [L5] to complete your outdoor apparel kit against a variety of elements that mother nature throws at you. Polartec® NeoShell® is the first fabric to combine the superior breathability, ventilation, and stretch of a soft shell with the waterproof performance of a hard shell, delivering the best of both worlds.
Polarec® NeoShell® is the world’s first most breathable waterproof stretch fabric technology. For years, technical outerwear brands had prioritized excessively high waterproof ratings that sacrifice the breathable performance needed during physical activity. NeoShell® however revolutionized the industry by providing the strength and durability of a weather protective fabric, while still allowing dynamic air exchange and comfortable full range motion.
Polartec® NeoShell® allows more dynamic breathability through its sub-micron membrane structure at the core of the fabric. By engineering optimal pore size and placement, NeoShell® releases heat and perspiration without high pressure build up. Continuous air exchange enhances natural thermoregulation, while still providing the needed protection from all outside elements. Operatives will be drier inside in a wider range of weather conditions and exertion levels than ever before.
Fabric Care: Technical outerwear benefits from regular washing to perform optimally. Carefully review and follow the garment’s care label instructions. Before washing, secure all zippers and closures. Machine wash warm (86°F / 30°C) with a high performance cleaner like Grangers Performance Wash or Nikwax® Tech Wash. If you elect to use a conventional liquid laundry detergent, a second rinse will help to remove all traces of detergent from the fabric. Never dry-clean your garment or use fabric softeners, bleach or stain removal products. Tumble dry, using a low heat setting, to rejuvenate your garment’s durable water repellent finish (DWR).
DWR serves as an invisible first line of defense in wet conditions, and, when working properly, causes moisture to bead up on the fabric surface and roll off. A DWR finish will degrade over time and will occasionally need to be replenished. A simple way to test your garment’s DWR finish is to lightly spray or splash it with water and see if the water is beading up or being absorbed by the fabric. If the fabric ‘wets out,’ it’s time to revive the DWR finish. When it’s time to retreat the DWR finish, we recommend a DWR replenishing product like Grangers Performance Repel Plus, Nikwax® TX.Direct® Wash-In or TX.Direct® Spray-On.
