Technical Infos

Quartz Co. uses the highest-quality fabrics and laminates them with a waterproofing membrane that makes them wind-resistant and allows for the evacuation of moisture. They are also covered with DWR, a water-repellent coating that gives the fabric a higher degree of impermeability. Quartz Co. chose this C6 technology (80%, 10 washes) not only for its effectiveness but also because it’s known to be the most eco-friendly repellent available today.
