WHAT IS SYMPATEX?
What’s this Sympatex fabric we use and talk about? Well, it’s a pretty amazing, high-tech fabric. Yeah, high-tech fabric! Sympatex is created for all of us who love outdoor activities regardless of the weather. It’s waterproof, windproof, breathable, durable, and non-toxic. That’s important to us.
Regardless of weather and activity level, we all want to stay dry and comfortable. There are few things that are more uncomfortable than having wet and cold clothes. Sympatex is a pretty clever fabric; the breathability in the fabric adapts to your activity level. The harder the activity, the more and better it works to keep you comfortable.
The Sympatex membrane can withstand a water column of 45,000 mm, which basically means you can be in the middle of a monsoon for hours and not get wet. Read more on their website here!
The windproof Sympatex membrane also protects you against the windchill effect. When riding your snowmobile or doing other activities outdoors, you might have experienced getting really cold when the wind increase. If you ride your snowmobile at a speed of 20-25 km/h when it is 3 degrees celsius the perceived temperature is – 6 celsius. But with our Sympatex gear, that won’t happen to you!
All of this sounds great, right? Well, it doesn’t end here. The folks at Sympatex are working hard on creating a sustainable fabric in a world of textiles that is facing a lot of challenges.
