NeoShell comes in different styles

NeoShell is made in 3 basic styles.

Although many jackets made today use the lightweight style – the inner is a simple nylon tricot making for a fabric 1mm thick – there is a middle weight and a heavyweight also.

Here you’ll see the inside of them. The middle is about 1.5mm thick and can be either a velour fleece inside or a grid pattern of fleece (and this fabric is the stretchiest of all of the styles).

The heavyweight version of NeoShell has a higher loft grid fleece inside and is about 2.5mm thick.

One thought on “NeoShell comes in different styles”

  1. I live in rainy Vancouver Canada and I use my FoxWear pants for cycling year round – rain or shine.

    I have previously owned two other brands of rain pants and I’ve been using my FoxWear pants for several weeks.

    I have made a few observations about the service and the pants:

    1. The service is excellent. In my case there was a small problem with my order and Lou was very responsive.

    2. I am tall and thin. None of the ready-to-wear pants that I have bought in the past fit properly. It was a big treat to get pants that were long enough to cover the tops of my boots. I found that getting an extra 2 inches in length (over my full inseam measurement) made the pants fit nicely when my legs are bent on my bicycle. I no longer get water in the top of my boots.

    3. I was concerned about the fact that FoxWear normally has an 8″ slit but mine would have a 12″ Velcro slit at the bottom of the pants. My previous pants had a fancy waterproof zipper and I was concerned the Velcro would not be waterproof enough. I am pleased to report the Velcro works very well and I find the pants easy to remove – even when I have my boots on.

    4. I bought the light weight fabric. Even at temperatures of -10 C / +14 F the pants are very effective.

    5. If you live in Canada, I recommend you use the low cost Canada Post service. I was impatient and used the express service and the pants took exactly as long to arrive as the standard $10 service. (In fairness, Lou recommended the cheaper service.)
