DryEdge™: A membrane that guarantees water-resistance and breathability It is used in a variety of 2 and 3-layer fabrics according to athletes' needs. It is perfect for active sports offering high performance and comfort. All seams in garments with DryEdge™ are heat-sealed.
DWR: Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coatings, which improve fabric resistance to water and stains, helps prolong the durability of technical garments.
For all collections since 2014, Millet uses new PFC-free solutions that are as efficient as current finishes but with a far lower impact on health and the environment.
K DRY™: The treatment (Keep Dry) consists of a thin layer of polymer added to the down which creates a water-repellent barrier, while keeping the down light and insulating even in wet conditions. DRY™ K DRY™ treatment does not affect thermal performance or Fill Power and keeps the down breathable, which is a key factor for comfort. K Dry™ water-repellent treatment will keep you durably and comfortably dry.
