Sympatex presented functional textiles with four apparel partners, Mammut, Lagoped, ON, and Zanier, at ISPO 2019. The trade fair for sports professionals was being held from February 3-6, 2019, at Munich, Germany. Sympatex is a leading provider of high-tech functional materials in clothing, footwear, accessories, and technical fields of application.
Sympatex helped Swiss-based Mammut bring the world’s first laser-welded down jacket to the market. For this innovation, which relies on a two-layer Sympatex laminate, Mammut is being recognised with an ISPO award. The fully waterproof Photics HS Thermo hooded jacket stands out not only because of its exceptional design, but also because the use of waterproof tapes is significantly reduced. The new Mammut laser fuse technology is what keeps the Sympatex shell completely sealed and waterproof, without any restrictions. The optimally breathable Sympatex membrane simultaneously provides uncompromising dryness and comfort. The jacket is entirely PFC-free, Sympatex said in a press release.
Innsbruck glove specialist Zanier has incorporated environmentally-friendly, completely recyclable membranes from Sympatex into its new models for the coming season. Thanks to the highly functional Sympatex membrane, the REVOLUTION.XSX fingered glove is not only 100 per cent water- and windproof, but optimally breathable as well. To top it off, high-quality goat leather and 4-way stretch contribute to ideal wearing comfort. Because it offers maximum mobility thanks to the fingered inner glove, the EVOLUTION.XSX is the perfect back-country companion. Together with the Primaloft insulation, the Sympatex membrane provides an extra portion of warmth.
