Our Materials

Dexshell products are created with your activities in mind. We strive to produce durable but affordable waterproof accessories, whilst keeping our impact on the environment, which is why we use natural resources in our products such as Bamboo lining.

THERMOLITE® and insulation provides warmth and comfort without weight, even when wet. Because it is comfortable and light weight, THERMOLITE® and insulation allows freedom of movement – making it the perfect layer for outdoor wear, for example, our range of Thermolite® gloves. Its hollow-core fibers trap in air for greater insulation for light, yet heavy-duty performance. It is also called ‘artificial polar bear hair’. THERMOLITE® is the registered trademark of Invista®.
Natural cottons ability to allow you to breath in all weathers makes it a great insulator against both heat and cold. Wool has a natural crimp (weave), these crimps trap pockets of air helping to keep your body temperature comfortable. Natural cotton is ideal for sensitive skin due to little need for any chemicals in the process.  Renewable source, biodegradable carbon neutral natural fibers.
COOLMAX® is the performance yarn that includes an effective fibre-based moisture management system. The system can move perspiration away from the body, through the fabric, and transfer out of the wear. It can evaporate quickly, allowing the wearer to feel cooler and much more comfortable. Look no further than our COOLMAX® gloves, fo example, for comfort, warmth and dryness. COOLMAX® fresh FX has the permanent anti-bacterial performance due to the special treatment by silver-based additive during the production. COOLMAX® is the registered trademark of Invista®.
Warm, breathable, moisture repellent and anti-static, Merino has the capacity to deal with moisture like no other yarns, absorbing perspiration and releasing it into the air as vapour. It is naturally odour resistant too. Luxuriously soft and gentle against the skin, it reacts to your body’s temperature, keeping you warm when it’s cold and releasing body heat and moisture when it’s hot. The natural elasticity and resilience of Merino wool enables it to spring back into shape with ease.

Nylon is a synthetic, fibrous material that is known for its high tensile strength, abrasion resistance and chemical stability. It is a very resilient fiber that is used in clothing, it is both lightweight and warm.
