What are your experiences with Schoeller fabrics (specifically the WB 400). It seems difficult to find in the US - 'Gore' branding clearly is the king of the consumer markets there, but recently on a trip through asia I picked up a North Face soft shell made with Schoeller WB 400 - looking at Schoeller's website, the WB 400 is described as permanently stretchable, waterproof, windproof, and perfectly breathable (beat that Windstopper!). (http://www.schoeller-textiles.com/pd...ch_wb400_e.pdf)
Haven't had a chance to really test it out yet, on account of it still being summer, but the fabric feels really nice, light, soft, stretchable - really feels worlds better than the Gore Windstopper on some of my other shells.
I'd be interested to hear your opinions or experiences with any of the Schoeller products. Let's hope we see more of this stuff in the US.
