Just ask Indiana Jones: It’s all about the gear. Indiana had his whip; we have our jackets: Tools for every terrain. They ensure that junior explorers don’t freeze, sweat or get wet in winter. <br><br>With their reflective prints, our jackets shine when it comes to safety, and their technical features make them heroes of weatherproofing and comfort: A waterproof rating of 15’000 mm, PrimaLoft® Eco lining and high breathability are the watchwords here. <br><br>Mission complete? Not quite. This is namuk gear we’re talking about, after all: Features such as the hidden key holder and built-in pocket for garbage are just as important as the Overall Connection System, which ensures that the jacket can be combined with any pair of namuk snow pants. It’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for anyone who’s too big to wear one.
Overall Connection System
After all, the Overall Connection Zipper (Litin) lets us connect our Chip and Snick rain jackets (starting with the 2021 generation) with all Snow and Dan rain pants. This creates an absolutely weather-proof overall for all elements and every event: For walks in the woods with school when it’s wet and chilly but not cold enough for snow pants? You need rain pants plus Litin plus ski jacket (*angels singing*)! For the “I’m hottttttt” child who sits in the snow for hours building igloos? Ski pants plus Litin plus rain jacket over a fleece jacket (*angels singing*)!
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.
There’s always something left over, whether it’s the last bits of a snack or just a paper bag. We integrated a special garbage pocket for just these things. Once at home, the pocket can be turned inside out to empty it, then washed.
Seamless lycra cuff
We use flexible Lycra material for our cuffs and fashion them with seamless thumbholes. That makes them beautifully soft and guarantees freedom of movement under gloves. That way, gloves will be worn more often, and cold hands (which lead to less time playing outside) can be avoided.
Waterproof to 15,000mm water gage
These membranes withstand water pressure equivalent to a depth of 15 meters and don’t let water penetrate even after hours of playing in the rain. Such high technical standards in children’s clothing are not a given, though it’s just when digging, horsing around and running that kids be protected from getting wet. That’s why we test our material intensively, so kids can stay dry and keep playing, no matter what the weather.
10,000 g/m2/24 h breathability
A membrane is what regulates the climate inside an item of clothing. It must keep out all water, but still actively transport sweat toward the outside. So breathability plays a big part in the comfort of the clothes: After all, no one wants to wear a plastic bag, even if it is waterproof. Our membranes provide superior performance in both respects: Thanks to their high waterproof rating, they withstand even the most adverse weather conditions, and because of their breathability, kids don’t sweat too much - even when building big igloos.
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.
PrimaLoft® Eco insulation
The vegan inuslation material PrimaLoft® Eco is light as a feather, water repellent, keeps kids warm – and is environmentally friendly, too! It’s made of a mixture of recycled materials and PrimaLoft® virgin fibers, which combine to create a breathable, extremely efficient layer of thermal insulation. Depending on the product, the proportion of recycled material is between 60% and 100%. And because the material is so amazingly soft, it guarantees an all-around snuggly feeling – almost like a favorite Teddy bear.
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.
Climate control system
A bit of quick ventilation if it happens to get a bit hot now and then? Not a problem: We integrated a ventilation system into this product.
