Anatomy of Shell Garments

Whether you are a hardened mountaineer, dog walker or just spend a lot of time outdoors, the chances are that you have at least one shell garment hanging around somewhere in your house. More than likely you’ll have invested significant amounts of money in attempting to keep dry and warm over the years. But have you ever stopped to think, “where does the money go?”
Over a series of several articles Unleashed Tactical Equipment would like to provide an insight into what makes up a shell garment and in the process try and remove some of the smoke and mirrors. BFE Labs is extremely pleased to present these articles in association with Unleashed Tactical Equipment.

The first article looks at the history of weather protective clothing and how the first technical materials were introduced.
