Staying dry in nasty weather just got easier. The Square is an ultra minimalistic waterproof unisex shell skirt. It’s constructed as a onesize wraparound skirt and made in tough, stretchy and silent Loop Hardshell.
Sometimes you have to think new to solve old problems. How do you shelter yourself from unexpected weather when you are out and about? We wanted to make a garment that you can throw on and off without effort, light enough to always bring in your pack and still shelter you like a pair of rain pants. The Square is the answer.
The wraparound construction makes is very easy to put on and off and give the garment a wide size span (one Square fits the entire family). The garment is made i Loop Hardshell, a lightweight waterproof and breathable shell fabric. It’s very durable but also silent, stretchy and smooth. The slit in the back provides great freedom of movement.
So when should I use The Square? Whenever you need to shelter yourself from the rain but don’t want to wear shell pants. Wear it over a pair of softshell pants on a ski tour or over your regular outdoor pants on a hike. Wear it over your jeans when you’re waiting for the bus on a rainy autumn day. The lightweight construction weighs in at only 214g so you can always bring it in your bag.
We can highly recommend The Shelter if you want to always be ready for the unexpected weather. It’s a progressive and minimalistic alternative to rain pants.
This garment is recyclable and we kindly ask you to return it to us when it’s completely worn out.

Atmos™ Membrane is a hydrophilic membrane, not micro porous, and at the molecular-level moisture moves through the fabrics. The more moisture that is in circulation the greater the ability of the membrane to move moisture away from your body. With Atmos we are sure we have a membrane that delivers Houdini standards when it comes to high performance in an environmentally sustainable way, which no other membrane at the market can live up to. Atmos™ membrane is made from recyclable polyester.
When washing clothes made of synthetic fabrics, the use of a washing bag becomes even more important: It prevents microplastics from entering into rivers and oceans.
Air clothes instead of washing to save water, energy and to make the garments last longer.
Use a washing bag to protect your garments and to prevent fibers from leaking. When cleaning the bag and filter in the machine, make sure to wipe it clean and throw the lint in your trash can. Never rinse it in water since we don’t want the fibers to end up in lakes or oceans.
Machine wash, max 40 °C/104 °F.
Use mild environmentally certified detergents and make sure to use the right dose.
Avoid fabric softener. Besides being harmful for our environment, they have a negative impact on the garment performance, mainly moisture transportation and breathability.
Tumble dry on low heat.
