January 20, 2009 (Busto Arsizio, Italy) â€“ OutDry, maker of a patented laminate membrane technology for waterproof, windproof and breathable gloves and footwear, partners with Mountain Hardwear for eleven styles of its Fall 2009 glove line.
â€œWe are so impressed with the superior performance of the OutDry lamination process that we chose to incorporate the technology into all three categories: Alpine, Backcountry and Snowear, as our premier waterproofing solution, for a total for 13 new or updated OutDry styles,â€ said Dan Ramos, Product Manager for Accessories at Mountain Hardwear.
OutDry uses a three-dimensional laminating process to adhere a waterproof, windproof, and breathable membrane to the inside of the outer most layer of shoes, boots and gloves. Unlike other waterproof liners or booties that leave a gap for moisture to seep in, OutDry’s technology permanently bonds to the shoe or glove creating flawless fit with no folds, seams or seam-sealing tape. The system creates a more waterproof finished product, reduces â€œwet weightâ€ and improves comfort and dexterity. OutDry also keeps a healthy environment as a top priority using recyclable, non-toxic materials and is PTFE-free.
â€œMountain Hardwear’s decision to adopt OutDry in such a broad collection of gloves is an important endorsement for our technology. We are thrilled to introduce our brand and technology to the US market with such a respected apparel company,â€ says Matteo Morlacchi, co-founder of OutDry.
