Flexia 3.0 is a three layer waterproof/breathable ripstop fabric used on Hillsound's Armadillo LT and Super Armadillo gaiters. The ripstop weave limits the impact of tears and rips and has a higher strength to weight ratio compared to standard weave. The synthetic fibres (nylon and spandex) give the benefit of two-way stretch (in the case with our gaiters, contour-fit around the calves). Flexia 3.0 also has a C6 DWR finish, which gives the face a water and stain resistant finish and is durable for up to 50 washes.
YKK AquaGuard water repellent zippers are used on all Hillsound gaiters. The best of its kind in terms of durability and preventing debris as well as moisture from entering the gaiter. YKK is a globally renowned brand who stands for innovation and high quality.

Tiny raised plates prevent sharp objects from tearing the base fabric. Gaps between the plates allow breathability, flexibility, stretch and quick drying.
