Introducing SympaTex Fabric
Being outdoors on a sunny day is amazing. Being outdoors on a day when the weather is a bit feisty is even more amazing when you have the right jacket. So when it came time to design our newest collection, we searched far and wide for a material that breathes and is water resistant to a standard above the accepted norm. Oh... and did we mention we would only use the material if it was recyclable.
This may have seemed an impossible standard but thanks to recent innovation and like-minded outdoor sustainable apparel enthusiasts, we found SympaTex. This German company produces a material, Sympatex, using a membrane that is 100% waterproof, 100% windproof, 100% recyclable, and has optimal breathability.
Each and every single one of our ski and mountain jackets use this material. Able to withstand water column pressure of up 45,000 mm in testing, with a membrane being considered waterproof by EN 343 standards if it can resist a pressure of 1,300 mm, Sympatex ensures our users are ready for whatever nature throws their way.

RECCO Avalanche Rescue Technology
RECCO® technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an avalanche accident. The technology is utilized by 700+ rescue organizations worldwide to assist in the efficient location of burials. First introduced in 1983, the system has proven itself effective and is now adopted by an extensive network of ski resorts, helicopter skiing operations, parks, and search-and-rescue organizations in Europe, Japan, North and South America.
The RECCO® technology enables rapid directional pinpointing of a victim’s precise location using harmonic radar. The two-part system consists of a RECCO® detector used by professional rescue teams and RECCO® reflectors that are integrated into our collection of ski jackets and pants.
To extend an extra element of safety to our fans we added RECCO® reflectors to our entire range of Pure Snow and Pure Mountain jackets and pants. They’re sewn directly into the garment so you'll always have them with you and you never have to change any batteries. Plus, you don’t need a user manual to learn how to use them. Just put on your jacket and pants and go. A RECCO® detector in the hands of a trained rescuer can make the difference between life and death.
