North Sails Performance is called that for a reason: we’ve refined every detail with performance in mind. We started our design process by talking to the sailing community and we distilled the fundamental changes that the sailing community wanted to see in their kit. How did we deliver those changes? We investigated and innovated, creating game-changing solutions that set the benchmark for high-performance marine clothing.
GORE-TEX® PRO is the only membrane that's durably waterproof and breathable enough to take the abuse our sport throws at it.
PERTEX® Shield Air
An extremely breathable technology, that relies on moisture moving through the fibre filaments of the fabric via capillary action.
TightWeave™ is a durable fabric construction that uses much thinner threads and much tighter weaves.
4DL™ is a durable laminated reinforcement. No sewing and seam taping a patch significantly reduces seam failure in a high stress zone.
A protective external layer of nylon makes DuraSeal™ much tougher, and stops UV degradation.
A fabric treatment that stops the growth of odour-causing bacteria.
