Pertex® offers a range of superior insulating fabrics typically found in down jackets, sleeping bags, and expedition gear. These fabrics are uniquely designed to exceed the needs of athletes in unfavorable conditions and extreme environments.
Pertex® fabrics encourage rapid evaporation by utilizing capillary action to disperse moisture over a broad area, rather than wicking directly through the weave of the fabric. Lightweight, tough and ultra-breathable, they are engineered to optimize thermal efficiency, prevent the onset of hypothermia, and stabilize the body's core temperature.
The high-density weave of the outer surface forms a reliable barrier against:
- Penetration by insulation filters
Pertex® maintains loft without adding bulk
Pertex® Microlight offers significant weight reduction while maintaining good strength and abrasion resistance.
