Dry.Q Elite - Instant-on shell technology

Mountain Hardwear's Dry.Q Elite technology is built in to their highest performance waterproof and breathable products. Unlike traditonal waterproof-breathable outerwear, which requires high levels of body heat before the breathability begins to work, Dry.Q Elite is instant-on technology. The air-permeable membrane maximizes the body vapor outflow, so no matter what temperature or level of exertion you are at, Dry.Q Elite starts breathing the moment you put it on. And that's just the breathability part. Let's not ignore the fact that Dry.Q Elite products are also completely waterproof and windproof, and combined with unbeatable breathability they offer high-performance shell functionality that is changing the industry.

Dry.Q Active technology combines the innovative waterproof-breathable performance of Dry.Q with stretch fabrics, super lightweight materials and detailed body mapped designs to create a whole new generation of aerobic outerwear.

While fabrics are being engineered, face and backing materials with unique benefits are combined to best meet the needs of the user, activity, and climate. All Dry.Q Core products are extensively tested to ensure the breathability capabilities will not deteriorate over time, making them versatile and long-lasting solutions for everything from a lightweight climbing jacket, to everyday rainwear.
