Trade fair highlight: Novel single-wall tent with innovative material mix
Munich / Unterföhring, 25th June 2014. At the OutDoor 2014, Sympatex Technologies will present its wide product and technology range again. The ecological alternative among functional textile specialists puts the focus on the product segments Hike, Bike and City during this year’s trade fair in Friedrichshafen (10th – 13th July 2014). Sympatex will introduce a novel laminate combination for breathable single-wall tents as well as a membrane-based bivi bag amongst other things. In addition, the Munich-based functional specialists will again present a variety of new partner products to the trade visitors at their OutDoor booth (hall A4, booth 303). Here are some examples:
New products in the “Hike” category
Sympatex can now offer an alternative system to the usual PU-coated and siliconised materials of single-wall tents: perfect climate regulation and moisture management inside the tent based on the Moisture-tech® and HigH2Out® technologies. The new Sympatex tent laminates offer highest breathability and 100% waterproofness with the lowest possible weight. Another new product in the portfolio of the Munich-based company is the Sympatex Bivi Bag. It combines the Sympatex Reflexion® membrane with a light textile base material. It is ultralight, heat-reflecting, breathable and waterproof while offering security and comfort for bivouacking.
For the season of 2015, the Finnish partner HALTI will introduce the new two-layer jacket Tiikarla. The 100% water- and windproof as well as optimal breathable Sympatex membrane provides the best climate for all outdoor activities. Tiikarla offers many functional details, for example an “active dry” lining, a big inner mesh pocket and an adjustable hood.
New products in the “Bike” category
The men’s Sympapro jacket will now complement the portfolio of the partner VAUDE. Due to the 100% water- and windproof as well as optimal breathable Sympatex membrane, the sporty bike jacket offers maximum weather protection. This product also protects the environment: The eco-friendly polyetherester Sympatex membrane is 100% recyclable, PTFE-free and PFC-free.
The new French partner Esthete Cycle will present the Sympatex model, the Eclaireur jacket. The fashion label stands for an urban and modern city cycling style. The Sympatex membrane offers perfect weather protection. The jacket is equipped with an additional LED light system on the sleeves and on the back, providing ideal visibility in the city traffic.
New products in the “City” category
The fashion label Maharishi will also cooperate with Sympatex from now on. The British partner presents a classic olive-green two-layer parka with a partly recycled upper. The stylish functional jacket offers ideal weather protection thanks to Sympatex. All inseams are taped to be waterproof, and the outer seams are also decorated with black tapes.
The AllCast Waterproof Duck Boot M of the new Sympatex partner Crocs feels light and comfortable, just like sneakers. The “guaranteed green” Sympatex membrane creates a perfect foot climate.
