Discovery Trekking is a manufacturer of technical outerwear and next-to-skin custom clothing. We do have a fabric store, but as our fabrics come & go very quickly, it’s difficult to keep a website updated. We will showcase a few styles until gone…so check back often.
Most of the fabrics we use are made by Polartec® USA. Polartec® was originally known as Malden Mills.
We specialize in technical soft shells, such as Polartec® Powershield, Neoshell®, and Windbloc®. These fabrics are water repellent and have a breathable, windproof barrier. They all make wonderful Jackets, Vests, or Pants.
Polartec ® Neoshell®is the hottest new softshell . It combines the best of waterproof and breathable qualities for a superior outerwear fabric. Popular Science tested Neoshell against Gore-tex, and Neoshell won in both breathability and water repellency. Must be pretty great, because we also have some wonderful Gore-tex softshells, and they are amazing as well!
We also sell Polartec® fleece. 100-weight is very light, 300 is very dense/heavy, 200 is in-between and most common. Windpro® is a tightly woven fleece that provides water and wind repellence. Amazing for jackets and hats, but also in high demand for diaper covers!
Polartec® Powerdry® is a next-to-skin moisture-wicking fabric. Great for shirts, underwear, sleepwear, and all base layers. We have some wonderful warm High Efficiency Powerdry on sale...see fabrics listed for sale below.
