For us, invention has become tradition and PROOF™ is the best proof of that. It protects you from water in any form and keeps the wind out like nothing else. But the best thing of it all is that it’s made either from recycled or bluesign approved fabrics, and so lives up to the highest environmental standards available in the textile industry. In SS19 12% of our clothing collection and 8% of our footwear are made from PROOF™, and every product is completely fluorocarbon free.
Waterproof and breathable
Any normal jacket for everyday use normally only needs a water column of 2000 mm to withstand the elements. But we aim to do better than that. All our PROOF™ products handle a water column of 10 000 to 20 000 mm, meaning that the materials are not only sustainable but also perform in very rough conditions. The products also feature great breathability. We measure the breathability in MTVR gram/m2/24h, and our values are high, ranging from 10 000 to 20 000 grams. A PROOF™ product will help you perform in any weather conditions.
For long-lasting performance
A friendlier choice needs a friendlier treatment. To maintain the great quality of your PROOF™ product, you need to take care of it. The best way is to wash it in a regular washing machine and tumble it dry. Or even better, iron it. It is also important to re-impregnate the product with a fluorocarbon free treatment every once in a while for long-lasting performance.
is not one specific membrane only. Since it’s our own technology, it allows us to develop different membranes and fabrics depending on what the product is aimed to do. At this stage we offer both a PU membrane and a polyester membrane.
As we want our products to last for a very long time, all of our fabrics are tested, and tested, and tested again through physical test and field tests.
Our long experience in making high quality outdoor products has given us a huge advantage when searching and picking the finest woven fabrics. Together with a handful of suppliers in Asia we can continue to develop the best PROOF™ fabrics possible. Our aim is to create premium quality fabrics as sustainable as possible. The PROOF™ range consists of 1,5 to 3,5 layer products, which means that we can offer both very light products to the more heavy, but also more durable ones, depending on what job the product is aimed to do. All fabrics are developed by us so that we can guarantee that they live up to our high standards. It also means that we can create new, exciting, and sustainable fabrics.
