The stretchy, nylon-based fabric used in the making of the Cloudveil Switchback jacket is designed to mimic the smooth shell of a beetle. It also takes cues from cabbage leaves and insect wings, and it is coated with millions upon millions of infinitesimal grains of silicon.
Though it looks fairly normal, this jacket is representative of a new breed of outdoor product that incorporates a nanotechnology feature from fabric manufacturer Schoeller Switzerland called NanoSphere. The company pitches NanoSphere as a wonder product of sorts that is water- and dirt-repellent, anti-adhesive and self-cleaning - the same qualities found in nature with beetle shells, lotus leaves, cabbage, honeybee wings and other creations.
