Testing Outdoor Apparel Behind our House

Alpine Proof Behind our House – Testing Outdoor Apparel

Polychromelab found their new site in Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis, because in next to no time we get from the shop up to the exposed high altitude alpine lab for testing outdoor apparel. At the official opening of Alpine Proof outdoor lab Location Agency Tyrol was a guest. Here’s the German press release.

Behind our house we start. It takes a few minutes to get to Fiss’ mountain railways to Schönjoch and soon after we reach our high altitude alpine lab on 2436 meters. At this time of the year temperatures are freezing. Up here snow and wind wear off outdoor apparel. At the moment we’re testing bivouac bags made of two different types of fabric. The manufacturer wants to know, which model is more breathable.

Up here we learn about this easily. We attach sensors inside the bivouac bags to measure the inner temperature. At the tower for blusting avalanches right next to Alpine Proof outdoor lab we have a meteo station. Gerhard Rietzler made a very great job installing this: to get significant values testing outdoor apparel we compare data from inside the bivouac bags with those of the meteo station. This way we can read which fabric is more breathable.

This is how we run first outdoor apparel test right behind our house. It’s simply wonderful up here.

We sell outdoor apparel tested in the Alpine Proof outdoor lab in our polychromelab concept store here.

Opening Alpine Proof – Future of Outdoor Apparel

The Future of Outdoor Apparel at Alpine Proof Outdoor Lab

Yesterday was the day. Early in the morning we were quite nervous and after weeks of planing we couldn’t wait for the event: We celebrated the opening of polychromelab’s Alpine Proof outdoor lab in Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis – festively in the presence of supporters, partners and enthusiasts.

Our guests were Harald Gohm from Location Agency Tyrol, Benny Pregenzer managing director from Fiss-Ladis Mountain Railways, Franz Tschiederer managing director from tourism association Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis, Markus Pale major of Fiss and Thomas Bechthold professor at Textile Physics Dornbirn. Their statements explained what Alpine Proof is and what the collaboration between economy and sciences means to the region of Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis and the future of outdoor apparel. Michele Stinco rounded out the opening with some practice examples.

Smitten with Amazement on 2436 Meters

At the valley station of Schönjochbahn in Fiss we met at 10:00. We get to 2436 meters in the cars of Schönjochbahn. Up here we enjoyed a bright blue sky and an amazing view. Walking just a few meters next to the skiing slope we reached the Alpine Proof research platform jutting out over the ridge. At the edge we felt freezing wind, some meters in the back it was better.

Stunned the group listened to the speeches and even attracted some interested tourists. After the presentation Michele Stinco explained some stations of our research platform. We concluded the morning in Bergdiamant restaurant on Schönjoch.

For us it was a great chance to present project Alpine Proof to a broader audience: this unique site in Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis is something you can’t buy with money. We will see how we can write the history of outdoor apparel here on 2436 meters.
