Hydratic

Wicks away moist and keeps you dry

Windproof and waterproof clothing in Hydratic® wicks away perspiration, to reduce the risk you will become damp from your sweat, while still keeping out rain and moisture.

Our Hydratic garments protect from the wind, water and snow at the same time as they release as much body steam as possible (a property that many refer to as “breathing”). Hydratic has small, microscopic pores that are thousands of times smaller than a drop of water but hundreds of times larger than steam, which means that it releases moisture. This is how Hydratic clothing is waterproof without you getting sweaty.

Waterproof

Waterproofness is measured in water columns and the textiles are tested to determine how much pressure they can withstand before they start to leak. The higher the water column, the more pressure the fabric can withstand. A water column of 1,000 millimeters is technically considered to be waterproof, but this is not even close to sufficient for outdoor activities. Out in nature, pressure is often higher than that, for example when you are on your knees on wet ground.

This is why we developed Hydratic to withstand pressure of 10,000 – 20,000 millimetres. This means that you will stay dry during the most extreme and steady downpours. Regardless of whether you are walking, kneeling or sitting down.

Windproof

You have probably experienced the wind chill cooling phenomenon at some point. This is the shiver that runs through your body when the wind picks up. It is mainly common when you are in areas with extremely cold climates or high altitudes. To decrease the risk that you will become chilled, Hydratic helps keep the wind out, which would otherwise draw heat away from your body. Instead of turning back, you can continue on your adventure.

Ventilation (“Breathability”)

Breathability is measured by the number of grams of water a square meter of fabric lets out in 24 hours. Hydratic releases between 8, 000 and 15, 000 grams. The higher the number, the more moisture that is let out. In order to release the largest amount of steam possible, you will find a number of smart functions in our Hydratic garments. For example, there are ventilation openings in the armpits, mesh pockets and a chimney collar.

Durable

In order to withstand active outdoor use, our Hydratic garments go through the same difficult tests as our G-1000 fabric. In addition to test groups, Hydratic garments are tested for wear using the Martindale test. In this test, the material is rubbed in a test machine again and again at high pressure. This test continues uninterrupted for hours or, in the case of G-1000, days. We record when the fabric finally tears and compare it to how many years of active use it corresponds to. We are proud that Hydratic belongs to one of the outdoor world’s more durable membranes.

吸濕排汗,保持乾爽

採用Hydratic®的防風防水服飾具有絕佳的吸濕排汗功能,可降低汗流浹背的風險,同時將雨水和水氣隔絕在外。

我們的Hydratic服飾可於防風防水防雪的同時,盡力排出身體所產生的水蒸氣(也就是一般所說的「透氣」性)。Hydratic上面布滿細小的孔洞,比水滴小好幾千倍,卻又比水蒸氣大幾百倍,因此可以達到排出濕氣的功效。這是為什麼Hydratic服飾一方面可以防水,一方面又可以排汗。

防水

防水性是以水柱壓力來測量,布料經過測試之後,開始滲漏時所承受的水壓即為其防水係數。水柱值越高,布料的耐水壓性越好。水壓達1000 mm即可聲稱防水,但是這種等級對於戶外運動還是不夠力。大自然裡的壓力往往高過於此,舉例來說,跪在潮濕地面所承受的水壓就不止這樣。

因此我們研發出Hydratic布料,可承受10,000到20,000 mm的水壓,即使在最嚴重、持續不斷的滂沱大雨中,也可以保持乾燥,不管是走路、跪地或坐下都不用擔心。

防風

您可能曾經感受過風寒冷卻現象,就是一陣冷風吹過,渾身打了一個寒顫的現象,通常發生在嚴寒氣候或高緯度地區。Hydratic材質可以阻擋寒風,防止寒風帶走身體的熱氣,因此可以降低身體發冷的機會,讓您順利進行探險活動。

通風(透氣性)

要量度透氣性,是看每平方米布料於24小時內可通過多少克的水。Hydratic布料的透氣性介於8,000到15,000公克之間。數值越高,通過的水分越多。為了達到最大的水蒸氣釋放量,我們的Hydratic服飾還搭配了一些智慧功能設計,例如,腋下的透氣口、網布口袋以及立領設計。

持久耐用

我們比照G-1000布料,對Hydratic服飾採取相同嚴格的測試,目的是為了使它能夠承受劇烈的戶外活動。除了測試團隊之外,我們的Hydratic服飾還採用了Martindale磨擦試驗,測試時將布料以摩擦試驗機反覆高壓摩擦,持續不間斷達數小時,或者以G-1000來說甚至長達數日。然後記錄布料最終的磨損時間,比對出相當於實際使用幾年後的結果。我們相當自豪Hydratic可稱得上全世界最持久的薄膜面料之一。
