rh+ FABRICS SNOW

The rh+ philosophy is to custom develop families of fabrics for specific functions in the Powerlogic Lab, our research and development lab, with support from partners and specialist suppliers, in order to achieve the best technical performances from its products. Thermal insulation, wind protection, waterproofness and ergonomics: these are the technical features of the fabrics developed for the snow collection. Comply with the skier's movements in every situation and make his experience on the snow as comfortable as possible.

WaterDry

rh+ WaterDry™ fabrics are designed to offer protection against water, whether it means rain, splashes or simple humidity, while still securing maximum breathability, lightweight and wear resistance possible.
WATERDRY™
Platinum KR Soft Face
Inside the Keratin fabrics technological range this fabric shows a combination between wool and elastomer. This lead to a comfortable and innovative fabric DRY and BREATHABLE: Keratin fibres are capable of absorbing up to 35% of their own weight in moisture, which they then expel away from the body.
THERMOREGULATION: thanks to the structure of wool fibres, Keratin creates thousands and thousands of miniscule air pockets that ensure warmth by stopping body heat from escaping when it’s cold, and expelling moisture when it’s hot – which stops you from overheating. The fabric, which includes a laminated layer, guarantees:
  • Waterproofing: 20,000 mm - ISO 811 Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
  • Breathability: 15.000 g/m2
  • Water repellency: 20 machine washes

Platinum Biomorphic 4WS
At the start of this century, rh revolutionized the world of sportswear by creating Biomorphic fabric, which set a whole new standard in terms of comfort, ergonomics and protection. That standard still holds today. It is made thanks to an exclusive system that involves laminating between the multi-way stretch outer layer (also used in our Cycling collection) and the high-performance, breathable, inner stretch membrane. “Bio”, as it is known, is incredibly waterproof. The lamination process, developed over years in our Powerlogic Lab, combined with warmth produced by the body during exercise has a thermoforming effect - and this means that the garments fit perfectly. The WD Platinum Biomorphic 4WS is also presented in the Duall Cell version with aerodynamic calendaring and in the lasered one where the colored membrane without losing technicity becomes a decorative element. The fabric guarantees (even after several washes):
  • Waterproofing: 20,000 mm - ISO 811 Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
  • Breathability: 15,000 g/m2
  • Water repellency: 20 machine washes

Platinum Biomorphic 4WS Softshell
Soft Shell version of the iconic “Biomorphic 4WS” fabric created and developed by rh . In the Soft Shell declination the membrane has been lightened while maintaining high protection and breathability values and increasing the windproof function by the process of bonding different layers of fabric to a single
WATERDRY™
Gold Morphic 4WS
We work tirelessly on product development to guarantee that all rh winter sportswear collections offer maximum protection from the elements. The Powerlogic Lab studies and generates ways to develop fabrics and apply the very best technology available, while still ensuring a level of functionality that has led to international recognition for the brand and its products. Gold Biomorphic fabric is an excellent example of how the company works. It features a breathable laminated layer paired with a highly elastic outer layer, also designed to be particularly breathable. Elastan fibres give the fabric a multi-way stretch (4WS), while the ultra-lightweight coupled membrane applied to the fabric means that it is also waterproof and breathable. Fabric guarantees, even after several washes:
  • Waterproofing: 15.000 mm - JIS L 1092B Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
  • Breathability: 10.000 gr/mq
  • Water repellency: 20 machine washes

WATERDRY™
Gold Thermo 3 2WS
A compound fabric made with a laminating system between the outer two-way stretch fabric, the middle membrane and the inner fleece. The result is a highly technical and functional fabric with two-way stretch that ensures the perfect fit combined with outstanding waterproof protection and warmth all enhanced by the addition of fleece. Clothing made with WD Gold fabric is completely or partially heat-taped to ensure maximum protection against the snow and rain. Even after repeated laundering, the fabric guarantees:
  • Waterproofing 20,000 mm - JIS L 1092B Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
  • Breathability 15,000 g/m2
  • Water repellency 100%
Function: it keeps the body dry and morphs to fit the wearer while ensuring freedom of movement, breathability, and thermal and waterproof protection when it rains or snows. With these outstanding features, it is ideal for free skiing and outdoor activities
WATERDRY™
Silver
Laminated 2-layer fabrics that combine comfort and lightness with extraordinary waterproof protection and breathability. All the WD Silver technical features are unchanged in the woman collection, this fabric look much more precious and feminine thanks to his iridescent appearance. Even after repeated laundering, the garment’s physical, chemical and mechanical properties still guarantee:
  • Waterproofing: < 10,000 mm - JIS L 1092B Test for waterproofness/water resistance values
  • Breathability: < 106,000 g/m2
  • Water repellency: 20 machines washes
Function: They keep the body dry while ensuring comfort and breathability even when it rains or snows. With these outstanding features, it is ideal for outdoor activities.

AirDry

rh+ AirDry™ fabrics respond to the need of protecting the human body from the air generated in cycling at speed, from the cold wind or from the combination of both. They are so designed to function as a barrier and to protect in various weather conditions and usually they are made of strong but light fabrics and they can be use the all year long, guaranteeing also a moderate thermal protection as well as from light rain.
AIRDRY™
Platinum Super Light
Only yarns of less than 25 denier are used for this ultralight fabric. Although ultralight (34 g/m2), the high-density nylon microfiber is completely wind resistant and retains body heat. Treated with a DWR (Durable Water Resistant) finish for added protection against the weather that makes the fabric water repellent: even though garments are not waterproof they do not remain wet and guarantee enhanced comfort. Comfortable, light and soft, Platinum Super Light is made with the ripstop system so it’s extremely resistant to tearing and ripping. Function: Ideal as stand-alone windproof clothing for outdoor sports, it can also be worn as overwear (temperature range: 5, 18)

IceDry

Thanks to their outstanding thermal insulation and breathability, rh+ IceDry™ fabrics keep the body warm and dry even in bitterly cold weather. The elasticity of the fibers ensures a flawless fit and irresistible softness.
ICEDRY™
Platinum Dryarn®
Dryarn® is a highly performing fiber: it is an innovative yarn that offers comfort, technology and practicality to those who wear it. Function: Dryarn® creates an insulating and protective barrier but at the same time breathable, keeping the skin dry and warm. More breathable than polyester, more insulating than wool and lighter than any other fiber, Dryarn® is the best option for sports performances.
