Lagoped and DC sustainable jackets with Sympatex membrane

Published by Mountainblog on .


Through its development and a close dialogue with customers, Sympatex would like to create a clothing industry that combines high each demand with the uncompromising responsibility for the coming generations.With its agenda 2020, the  German company aims at closing the ecological loop in the functional textile industry by 2020.Sympatex lays the ideal foundation for meeting this goal with the 100% recycled, PTFE and PFC-free Sympatex membrane which has been completely climate-neutral since 2017.

Already this year, the pioneer in the field of sustainable functional textiles offers its first laminates made from used textile materials acquired through a circular economy. The goal is to have within the next five years at least half of the raw materials necessary for its functional laminates originate from a circular textile supply chain and be fully recyclable again – and be 100% circular by 2030.

THE SYMPATEX MEMBRANE: Excellent comfort whatever the weather: waterproof, breathable, windproof

Lovers of the great outdoors have high demands for their clothing and shoes. They must keep their bodies dry whilst controlling the body temperature perfectly in all weather and regardless of activity level. There is nothing more unpleasant than wet and cold clothing. As leading provider of sustainable functional textiles, Sympatex has therefore developed a special membrane which is 100 percent waterproof, 100 percent windproof and optimally breathable – like a second skin. The membrane absorbs the water vapour and removes it through the clothing to the outside. And the best thing about it is: the Sympatex membranes “breathes” dynamically which means the higher the physical activity, the more efficient it works. Thus, functional textiles with a Sympatex membrane provide effective protection from low temperatures and rain. This keeps the body warm and dry even in extreme situations.

These are the latest outdoor products created by Lagoped and DC with Sympatex membrane:
