3M™ Thinsulate™: These products retain as much heat as possible on a smaller surface area. The technology is warm, lightweight and offers excellent freedom of movement in both clothes and boots, even in cold weather.
Thinsulate is a material made up of fine synthetic fibres that store a lot of air and help ensure warmth.
The 3M company is renowned for its numerous innovations, already found in Neil Armstrong's gear.
The special Thinsulate Insulation fibres ensure a high level of comfort as well as efficient breathability and anti-moisture action, even when practising sports that generate a lot of sweat.
Pertex® Shield: This shield-like composition represents a fusion of technically advanced fabric faces with a microporous waterproof (10,000 mm) and breathable (7,000 g / m² / 24h) coating. With the focus on durability, shield combines wind and water protection with excellent breathability.
BD.dry™: 100% windproof and waterproof membrane. Highly breathable and windproof, it protects your body from elements to keep you dry and to remain comfortable even in extreme conditions. BD.dry™ stops exterior liquids from penetrating but allows sweat to be evacuated efficiently.
4 WAY STRETCH: High elasticity clothing (4 times above average) that adapts to the athlete's movements, and quickly regains its shape.
Kevlar®: Best known for its use in resistant armour, Kevlar® is an aramid fibre developed by DuPont™. It is a thermoplastic polymer consisting of aromatic rings which are separated by the amide groups. It is also used in various garments, accessories and equipment to enhance safety and abrasion resistance. It is light, durable and resistant.
This is a synthetic fibre which has excellent tensile properties and a high tensile strength. The toughness of Kevlar comes from its structure of hydrogen bonds held together between polymer chains.
Ascent Series: N°1 gloves for the backcountry in cold weather, Ascent Series meets various requirements for mountaineering, whether for snowy races in negative temperatures or technical climbs and descents in storms.
