A membrane or coating optimizes the weather protection of a fabric. With a softshell, it ensures that it is highly water repellent or waterproof, as well as prevent from wind in various degrees - always depending on the desired application. The design is similar to a 3-layer laminate: a thin membrane or coating is applied between the outer fabric and the lining. Depending on the kind of barrier processed, a 100% water tightness or maximum breathing activity can be achieved. The high wearing comfort is also optimized by the soft, flexible grip and a small portion of stretch. A softshell is robust and can also be used with heavier backpacks. Softshells with membrane have a smooth, abrasion-resistant outside and a soft, moisture-transporting lining. Depending on the intended use, the lining can be a soft fleece or a just a thin jersey mesh.
