This new, nano-fibre structure has enabled us to create our lightest breathable membrane to date. It’s incredibly thin and comfortable and it provides the protection needed against the elements in the harshest environments.
And there’s more. Yes, the fabric is unique in and of itself. But to add to that, it’s also incredibly ‘tunable’.
Nanospinning gives our designers the ability to adjust weight, stretch, breathability, durability, construction (knit or woven) and texture during the manufacturing process to match both athletes’ and consumers’ end-use, activity or environment. Our designers can customise the fabric for a specific use, for example, by increasing breathability in garments for aerobic pursuits or increasing protection for harsh, wet climates. That’s how we’ve been able to fine-tune the material for each of our Series: Summit™, Steep™ and Flight™.
But how do you know it works?
Because we’ve tested it – both in the lab and the real world.
To set a new standard in the outerwear industry, we had to test FUTURELIGHT™ under an entirely new standard. So we went to world-renowned, Underwriter Labs. It put FUTURELIGHT™ through the same extreme liquid integrity testing standards used with firefighter equipment, dumping over 750 litres of water per hour on the garment. The result? FUTURELIGHT™ received a 100% waterproof certification while demonstrating high levels of air permeability.
