Just because some material is left over after production doesn’t mean it’s less valuable. That’s why for this product, we made use of the high-quality scraps – so-called “upcycling.” So we can protect the environment and help reduce mountains of waste.
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 20,000mm water gage
If you wanted to dive into a lake wearing this material, you could go pretty deep, because the membranes withstand water pressure to a depth of 20 meters. Of course, a more sensible use of this feature is in our outdoor products, because even after hours of playing in the snow or rain, no snow or rain can penetrate them. Such high technical standards aren’t always applied to kids’ clothes, though it’s precisely when playing and running around that kids shouldn’t get wet – even if the weather doesn’t play along.
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.
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.
Our anatomically pre-shaped products help maintain as much freedom of movement as possible, even when children have to be packed up nice and warm.
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.
