In order to achieve maximum breathability the Crosswind windshell is made of uncoated fabric. This means that when you move through thorn bushes or when your shirt comes into contact with a sharp-edged object, the fabric may look irreversibly damaged. Fortunately that is not true – even though the individual fabric threads are misplaced, the mainframe of the fabric remains intact. Therefore the fabric can be repaired quite easily as demonstrated in the video provided by one of our customers. The same ”repair” process occurs when you machine wash your windshell.
