But we know our Tech Specs can be confusing. We’ve written a comprehensive glossary for understanding our technical terms and the performance features you might want to be looking out for when browsing our outdoor wear.
If you’re wondering what our clothing ratings mean, however – head over to our Technical Performance guide for an outline of the terms TP50, TP75 and TP100.

Duoskin® Intelligent Fabric effectively draws moisture away from the skin. This moisture then quickly evaporates when brought to the surface of the fabric, leaving you dry and comfortable. It features tightly woven fibres, and therefore high wicking and quick-drying fabric technology.

This is the best of the best, ideal for those who demand that little bit extra. DLX® spans the entire collection, from accessories to high-end outerwear, yet remains true to the ethos of value in a life outdoors. It delivers deluxe performance clothing and equipment.
Trespass excels in ‘bad weather’ solutions, and our Tres-tex® 3 Layer Waterproof Fabric offers breathable and windproof protection with taped seams. The fabric is supple, and when used as the outer shell in a layering system, 3 Layer Tres-tex® will allow you to maintain a dry and comfortable personal environment when the weather is not at its best.
This offers three options in the one garment. If it’s an adapatable solution you’re looking for, then this custom layering system is just what you need. The removable fleece gives you the ability to adjust your own personal microclimate, while the outer shell jacket counters rain and snow. Whether you’re hiking the backcountry or walking the dog in the park, 3 in 1 adds up to the perfect balance.
Be prepared without sacrificing weight and space in your pack. Our packaway garments are lightweight, adjustable and less bulky, yet retain a high performance.
Coolmax® fabric offers soft, lightweight and breathable comfort. It wicks moisture away from your body, keeping you cool, dry and comfortable.
DWR is a durable water-repellent finish which provides a protective wall from water droplets on the outer layer of the garment. DWR is not waterproof, but does reduce condensation forming, aiding in breathability and resulting in less moisture reaching your skin.
