Featured Klattermusen standards
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.
We strongly believe in creating products that last. Klättermusen was founded in 1984, and we regularly mend and repair clothing products sent in from our users that have been going for 20 years or more. Keprotec Kevlar from Schoeller® is one of the many ways we make our gear last longer, an extremely protective fabric originally developed for motorcycle racing. High-tensile aramide fibers are woven into the fabric, creating an exceptionally durable material that still maintains its elasticity and softness and is bluesign® approved. We use Schoeller® Keprotec Kevlar to reinforce high abrasion areas like cuffs, storm flaps, knees and backpack bottoms.
Duracoat™ is a unique surface treatment that Klättermusen has developed to improve durability in high-abrasion areas. It is a coating that is applied to particularly vulnerable places such as the shoulders or elbows, increasing wear resistance by up to five times.
