Thermal.Q EliteThe warmest synthetic insulation available

Thermal.Q Elite is warmer because it’s designed to mimic the structure of goose down – rigid stems that form a matrix of gaps and softer fibers to fill those gaps. Thermal.Q Elite uses stiffer fibers to create a unique 3D grid structure and finer fibers to fill in the gaps the structure creates. The result is a warmer synthetic whose structure gives it better compression rebound.

Ghost Whisperer FabricSuper-lightweight fabric that's naturally downproof, windproof and water repellant

Ghost Whisperer is a fabric so unique there’s only one mill in the world that can weave it. We developed this super-lightweight fabric as part of our Ueli Steck Project, a collaboration with speed alpinist Ueli Steck to reinvent climbing apparel and equipment for the next generation of ultrafast alpinists. The Ghost Whisperer fabric’s super-tight weave is naturally downproof, windproof and water repellent. While some claim to offer lighter fabrics, the Ghost Whisperer is the world’s only true 7 denier by 10 denier fabric, using single 7d and 10d yarns rather than pairs of strands.

Dry.QKeeping you dry and comfortable, inside and out

Dry.Q Active is used to meet the high-movement, high-breathability and low weight requirements of aerobic sports like running and skate skiing. The technology allows us to combine the waterproof protection of a hard shell with superlight and stretch fabrics. By engineering fabrics layer by layer and by combining performance fabrics in new ways, we can give athletes the protection of a rain-jacket with the lightweight stretch and moisture-management of a running top.

Dry.Q Core garments are made for outdoor enthusiasts whose needs don’t require the elite levels of performance offered by Dry.Q Elite. Dry.Q Core offers state-of-the-art waterproof-breathability with durability and breathability metrics that meet or exceed industry standards. Unlike most outdoor apparel manufacturers, we don’t source pre-finished fabrics. We engineer each Dry.Q Core fabric layer by layer, combining face and backing materials with different benefits to best meet the needs of the intended user, climate and activity.
