Materialguide

Materialguide


Water column (mm):

Indicates how water-repellent / waterproof the material is, higher column means better protection. Water column is measured by subjecting the material to water pressure in a cylindrical measuring instrument and the height of the column indicates how high the pressure the material can withstand before it leaks.


Breathability (g/m2/24h):

Indicates how much water steam the material passes through. In case of activity, steam evaporates from your body and in order for this not to condense on the inside of the garment, it is required that the material releases it. Obviously without letting wet in from outside! At higher intensity, higher breathability is required to keep you dry.


Taped seams:

When sewing garments, there is a small joint between the materials, as well as small holes after the needles where the wetness risks creeping in. Therefore, we tap many of our more advanced garments. This means that a waterproof tape seals the seams and therefore prevents the garment from leaking. The garments can either be fully taped, meaning all seams are sealed, or partially taped where the most exposed seams have been sealed.


durAtec® - A family carefully selected functional material.

In close cooperation with some of the world's leading material manufacturers, 8848 Altitude has developed its own system of high-performance functional materials; durAtec®. The materials have been developed to meet a variety of needs where different advantages have been prioritized - from flexible softshell to super lightweight 3-layer designs. Everything is completely fluorocarbon free.
