DWR Fabric Technology

Durable Water Repellent (DWR) technology is a polymer coating that provides water-resistant protection. This technology repels water, causing water to bead on a garment’s surface. This makes it run off rather than soaking into the fabric.

Regular use, salt, dirt or repeated washing can reduce the effectiveness of a DWR treatment. Reapply it as your garment ages: find out how on our Product Care page.
