Schoeller c_change™ Phantom Weave We challenged ourselves to find the most beautiful outerwear fabric in existence while still upholding Holden’s stringent standards of timeless quality, attention to detail, and respect for the environment. c_change™ Phantom Weave is the result. It’s sleek and smooth with filament yarns that catch the light to dazzling effect. Functionally it beats GoreTex® in most tests and features c_change™ —an innovative “eco friendlier” waterproof-breathable laminate from Switzerland that’s Bluesign®-certified (this guarantees the highest possible levels of environmental, health, and safety consciousness—read more at Unlike other waterproof laminates, c_change™ is an eco-conscious, active-waterproofing technology that’s constantly changing according to your fluxuating body temperature.

As interior temps rise and moisture builds, the membrane opens to disperse excess heat. As temperatures dip, it closes to effectively seal out cold air. It’s the best of both worlds—fresh air flowing through when you’re warm and working hard, and a cold-blocking barrier for deeply frigid moments. NanoSphere® DWR: We’ve also utilized Schoeller’s patented NanoSphere® technology to outfit Phantom Weave with a DWR exterior that easily repels water and dirt. Mimicking a natural self-cleaning effect found on certain plants, this super-fine finish simply won’t allow things like dirt, grease, and other sticky substances to adhere. It’s retained after frequent use and numerous washing cycles, as well as meeting the high requirements of the Bluesign® standard.
