Featured Klattermusen standards
MFR means Mass Flow Resistance and is our index on measuring wind permeability and breathability. Over the past 30 years, 100% windproof outer shells have become the industry norm despite limitations in breathability and the clammy feel it produces for the wearer.
Durable Water Repellents, DWRs, is a treatment that repels water and creates a waterproof or water resistant surface – or hydrophobic surface to use the scientific term.
Polyamide (also known as nylon) is a synthetic fibre made from petroleum, creating an extraordinarily strong and versatile fabric. At Klättermusen, 90% of the polyamide we use is recycled from post-industrial waste, and we were the first outdoor company to use recycled polyamide across our whole clothing and backpack line in 2009.
The bluesign® approval on our fabrics means that it complies with the highest standards of consumer safety by using materials and techniques that save resources and minimize environmental impact.
