The APECS is constructed with a proprietary GORE-TEXÂ® fabric that's 40 percent quieter than previous ECWCS fabrics - to help you operate more effectively in the field. It's engineered to remain durably waterproof even after exposure to contaminants, such as jet fuel, gasoline, hydraulic fluid, DEET, and other petroleums, oils, and lubricants. And that means your gear will last longer.
