Bergshell

Waterproof and extremely durable

Durable
 Waterproof
 Chemical-free

Bergshell is a completely new fabric from Fjällräven which is extremely durable and completely waterproof (20 000mm white TPU laminate). At the same time, of course, it holds the high environmental standards that Fjällräven has, with 100% recycled nylon (from post-production) and PFC-free impregnation. Creating a material with the highest possible abrasion resistance and also the highest possible tear strength is not easy because it requires two completely different yarns.


Ordinary filament yarn
An ordinary filament yarn has a smooth surface, creating a fabric with high tear strength but lower abrasion resistance.

Air textured yarn
Air textured yarn has a fuzzy surface, creating a fabric with high abrasion resistance but lower tear strength. (from post-production) and PFC-free impregnation.

In Bergshell we combine filament yarn and air textured yarn creating a fabric that has both high abrasion strength and high tear strength.

Introducing flat ripstop

Ordinary ripstop
When the surface is exposed to abrasion these rips will get hit first, making a vital part of the fabric more exposed to the abrasion.

Bergshell flat ripstop
With the Bergshell flat ripstop, the pattern has the same thickness of the threads, spreading out the abrasion over the whole surface.

A balanced weave
Unlike most of the fabrics on the market, Bergshell is a fully balanced weave which makes the fabric equally strong in all directions.
