Gore-Tex® Orcan 2L: The GORE-TEX® membrane is an extremely thin layer of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE). It contains over 1.4 billion pores per cm². It's all these pores that ensure the properties of GORE-TEX® fabrics: waterproofing, wind-resistance, breathability and insulation.
Gore-Tex® Orcan is particularly popular for its weight combined with excellent abrasion resistance. Made up of textured polyester threads, it retains flexibility and lightness.
DWR sans PFC: Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coatings, which improve fabric resistance to water and stains, helps prolong the durability of technical garments.
For all collections since 2014, Millet uses new PFC-free solutions that are as efficient as current finishes but with a far lower impact on health and the environment.
Low Impact™: Low Impact™ is based on 2 criteria that are essential to eco-design: the use of materials with a low environmental impact (at least 40% of the weight of the product is made from low impact materials such as Ecoya, Sorona®, tencel, hemp, RDS feathers), or certified materials (at least 80% of the product weight must be certified Bluesign®, Oeko-Tex®).
Oeko-Tex® Certification: The innovative fibres used are certified by Oeko-Tex®, an internationally recognised control body. This label certifies that the fibres do not contain chemical elements that are harmful to the skin and the individual.
Bluesign® Standard: Environmental program to eliminate substances that are potentially hazardous to human health or the environment from the textile supply chain. A Bluesign® approved fabric ensures that:
