Puddles, streams, downpours: For some of us a horror, but for most children akin to a party. The only thing is, even the most adventurous child doesn't want to run around drenched all day. <br></br>Our new Ultralight Jacket One protects against gloomy spirits and colds. It combines maximum waterproof ratings with minimum weight. The water column of 25'000 mm, in combination with a very high breathability of 50'000 gr/m2/24, ensures that sweat can escape during hours of running around in the rain, but the jacket still keeps moisture on the outside, so the inside always stays nice and dry. At 150 grams (size 128/134), the jacket weighs slightly more than a Swiss chocolate bar and can be easily stowed away in its own inner pocket. <br></br>Whether constructing a dam on holiday or just caught in a thunderstorm on the way to school: with the Ultralight Jacket One, your child will be well equipped all year round.<br><br>There is no overall connection system on this model.
It can be hard to see kids at dusk and in the dark. Different parts of our clothing and hardware reflect light, and therefore enhance safety. And of course, they look great, too.
Durable water repellency
All of our technical materials are treated with a DWR coating (durable water repellency). It’s not only water repellent, but also dirt resistant. Many such coatings in outdoor clothing are problematic, however, because of their consequences for the environment. Fluorobarbon (PFC) especially has come under fire. We love nature and are aware of our responsibility to protect it, so we refrain from using C-8 coatings. We work as hard as we can on PFC-free alternatives so we can gradually shift the entire collection. The challenge is finding the right balance between function and ecological sustainability. We are switching over most of our technical products to a more environmentally friendly C-6 DWR, because good, lasting water-repellent function is extremely important for children’s clothing. Most of our products already have a PFOA/PFOS-free DWR, and a part of the collection is already completely free of PFC. We are doing everything in our power to further increase this number.
Fully taped seams
This product features fully taped seams, providing optimal protection from water, because the seams are usually the first point where water penetrates the inner material. So kids stay dry, whether it rains or snows or there’s just a little accident with a juice box.
We only use zippers made by market leader YKK. That lets us guarantee the best quality and optimal performance. And it’s easy-peasy to open the zipper, even in frosty temperatures.
We not only build in zipper protection on the outside, but also the inside. Little chins getting rubbed raw are now finally a thing of the past.
PFC-free, durable, water-repellent DWR coat
Many water-resistant coatings on outdoor clothing, especially fluorocarbon (PFC), are problematic because of their harmful effects on the environment. We love nature and are aware of our responsibility to it, which is why we do not use such coatings on our products.
