Sympatex - Excellent comfort whatever the weather


In a varied Nordic climate of wind, rain and snow, it’s a good idea to choose a shoe with adapted functions. The sympatex membrane gives excellent comfort whatever the weather: waterproof, breathable and windproof. Lovers of the great outdoors have high demands for their shoes. They must keep their feet dry while controlling the body temperature perfectly in all weather and regardless of activity level. There is nothing more unpleasant than wet and cold clothing. Sympatex has therefore developed a special membrane which is 100 percent waterproof, 100 percent windproof and optimally breathable – like a second skin. 

The Sympatex laminate

The Sympatex membrane (5 – 25 µm) is connected to a wide range of possible base materials such as woven fabrics, knitwear, fleece, foam or leather to form a laminate for a specific application. Uniform high quality is assured by the interplay between the laminate, tape and technical processing guidelines. This is the only combination that sets a licensed Sympatex product apart from the rest. Thus, Sympatex is a global supplier of high-tech functional materials for international brand partners in clothing, footwear, protective workwear and technical applications. All Sympatex materials comply with Sympatex high quality standards and are tested according to international standards. Sympatex uses the tests to ensure that all its functional materials comply with or exceed these standards.

Sympatex's main focus is on protection, comfort, performance and optimal functionality, with particular attention to environmental responsibility. They are particularly committed to the use of recycled and recyclable materials and to achieving climate neutrality. Furthermore, Sympatex is known for its eco-friendly manufacturing process, which does not contain solvents and does not rely on the use of fluorinated chemicals. In addition, the Sympatex membrane is an environmentally friendly choice, with bluesign certification and 100% free of PTFE, ensuring optimal protection for both the environment and consumers.
