Texapore Ecosphere

Hardshell material

TEXAPORE ECOSPHERE represents a real breakthrough in weatherproof clothing, as it is the first one to be made of ** 100% recycled** weatherproof material. The membrane is made of cutting waste from the manufacturing process which is reintroduced into the production cycle – a zero waste concept. The outer fabric and lining, however, are made of recycled PET bottles. In this way, resources can be used sparingly or eliminated entirely. Despite comprising recycled materials, the quality remains at the highest level and offers the great performance of Texapore O2+.

What it offers

TEXAPORE ECOSPHERE provides the same level of performance as TEXAPORE O2+: for those among you who are very active and sporty, this material offers more than our basic TEXAPORE: it is extremely breathable (15,000 g/m²/24h**) and is waterproof up to a hydrostatic head (waterproof) rating of at least 20,000 mm* (roughly equivalent to 2 bar).By nature, TEXAPORE is totally windproof and PFC-free with a permanent water-repellent coating, meaning that water simply beads off the outer fabric.

Background

Our TEXAPORE waterproof technology is the functional core of almost all of our outdoor jackets and many of our weather protection products. The layer between outer fabric and inner lining is reliably waterproof, lets moisture vapour escape from the inside and is completely windproof. It means that you are not affected by weather conditions and can actually enjoy windy and rainy weather. We have been investing in the development of our membranes and coatings for more than 35 years. Over the years, we have developed a performance level for different activities, ranging from hiking and trekking to trail running.
