Testing new colour combination of the mountain jacket
A mountain jacket not only has to offer functionality, but also has to look good. As a valuable textiles-manufacturer of course both aspects lie us to heart.
First of all, we develope jackets, that can stand even the most extreme conditions in the mountains. To test this out we expose the proto-types a few months to the unpredictable alpine weather at the Glungezer-Lab. Because a mountain jacket has to be windproof, waterproof and sturdy. Through natural erosion of wind and rain we can survey how well the material does under real conditions.
But also fashion aspects do matter to us. Because of that we develope new colour combinations, which work properly and additionaly look pretty good. First there was black-silver, then blue-bronze and now a grey-green mountain jacket. All jackets are conceptualized as reversible jackets and, if you believe it or not, the dark-coloured side warms and the bright-coloured side cools. This way the hybrid jacket not only protects from wind and weather, but also supports the wearer to regulate and stabilise body temperature.
Soon the day has come: one of the final tests is the applied test of the proto-type. Here are some pictures of a mountain run through the Alps wearing the new grey-green mountain jacket from polychromelab.
