OncaShell pants are built with the unique Onca process. OncaShell is designed for use as an outer layer. This is good for cold weather during active wear. The OncaShell fabric protects your body from wind, rain and sweat due to its high transpiration ability.

OncaShell is our soft fabric, designed by Onca. It is used for a jacket, waistcoat, trousers and a cap. The fabric is 100% polyester, consisting of two layers: a polyester outer and a fleece liner.
Thanks to our OncaShell fabric we are able to maintain the body temperature and prevent the wind from getting through the clothing. We get this from the outer layer of the fabric because it is built with polyester microfiber.
We wanted to create a fabric that is durable for hiking in the mountains, but also warm, water repellent, windproof, and silent without sacrificing breathability.
We have developed a powerful Teflon based water repellent that is extremely durable. The Teflon base makes water droplets slide off the fabric, preventing them from penetrating the fabric. Although it is not waterproof, you will avoid getting wet while walking through wet vegetation or under the occasional rain.
The usual way to build a windproof, breathable fabric is using PTFE, PU or a polyester membrane. These membranes, which are highly breathable, sometimes get limited by the other layers of fabrics. We developed a fabric that protects against the wind without a membrane and still maintains a high breathability.
WARMTH AND MOISTURE WICKING
Fleece is capable of holding a large amount of air in a controlled volume; this air is heated by our body and in turn gives us heat. Thanks to its high wicking fibers, sweat is transported quickly to the outer layer of fabric, which helps to keep your body dry.
We developed the softshell fabric with a slight stretch for added freedom of movement. This, together with its high breathability, wicking the properties and warmth will help you have a comfortable hike.
SNAGGING AND TEAR STRENGTH
The closed design and construction of the outer fabric mesh make it very resistant to tearing and snagging. Vegetation, which usually breaks through and interferes with your gear, will slide over the surface.
