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 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 focus is on protection, comfort, performance and perfect functionality with a special regard to ecological responsibility. In addition to its performance, Sympatex relies in particular on recycled and recyclable materials as well as climate neutrality.
