    • SOFT-SHELL | FABRIC FEATURES & CARE

      Schoeller soft-shell combines a tough, abrasion-resistant exterior with a soft brushed interior, making our pants extremely durable yet comfortable enough to wear all day.  The fabric also moves when you do, stretching in all four directions.  Unlike most performance pants, the fabric feels substantial, like denim, and features a reinforced, no-stretch waistband.

      Schoeller soft-shell features outstanding wicking, breathability, and weather resistance, keeping you cool during intense activities and protecting you from the elements.  It also dries quickly and will insulate even when wet. Schoeller fabrics are manufactured according to the Bluesign system, for sustainable textile production.

      Protected with NanoSphere

      NanoSphere is a durable water-repellent (DWR) treatment inspired by the water-and-dirt-resistant properties of lotus leaves, which prevent dirt from adhering to their surface.  Fabric fibers are coated with nano-particles, which form a three-dimensional surface that repels water, grease, dirt, and stains.  Liquids roll off the surface as easily as they do off a lotus leaf.

    For active travel in cool climates Thunderbolt jeans are an excellent choice. Despite the ‘jeans’ tag, they’re not denim, but a technical fabric which is wind-resistant, water-resistant and dirt-resistant on the outside while comfortable on the inside thanks to its soft lining and four-way stretch. So you can wear them all day, sightseeing in the city or hiking in the hills, and they still look good when you go to a bar in the evening.

    Another six months have passed since my original  6 Month Review of the Thunderbolt Jeans so I thought I’d drop in with a quick follow-up. They’re still going strong. I still wear these almost every day and they still perform and look as good as ever. Being so impressed with the first six months I’ve been more tough on them over the winter months. I’ve played with my son in the snow, sledding, snowblowed the driveway after storms (so much better doing this than in my old denim jeans!), did yard work, tore down an old swing set and helped friends move. I’m at the point now that I don’t consciously think about whether I’m being too hard on them and they always come away looking no worse for wear.

    Team Thunderbolt’s Gerald Zhang-Schmidt

    They continue to be the most comfortable pair of pants you could possibly wear – and wear whether you go on a bike tour, a hike, your commute, a journey, a climb, to a café or to the office.
