Being prepared for changing conditions is a huge part of skiing and one of the most unexpected events that skiers can encounter is an avalanche. Since its launch in 1973 the RECCO® Rescue System has become the standard bearer in avalanche search and rescue technology. Obermeyer integrates RECCO® technology in our products.
The quest for the sourcing of fabrics, laminates, and membranes is an ongoing process as improvements in material technology continue to increase performance every day. We take great care in determining the best fabric for its suppleness and durability based on each product's needs. We invest time and energy to evaluate how a fabric accepts our HydroBlock™ lamination and the latest in water-resistant coating, and how we can make these decisions with the planet in mind.
Stretch fabricsWhether it's 2-way or 4-way stretch technology, our stretch fabrics provide you with a superior, dynamic fit that moves with you throughout the entire day of activity on the slopes. This approach works through our different fits as well, so whether you're wearing one of our form-fitting ski suits, or a fit that's more loose and layer-able, your materials will move like they're a part of you.
CZV™ – Control Zone Ventilation
Obermeyer’s CZV™- Control Zone Ventilation builds upon several of our other technologies such as waterproof breathable fabrics and weatherproof construction to bring about another level of breathability and comfort to your outdoor experience. Outdoor activities often require an elevated amount of cardio generation in cold temperatures. Thermal regulation through venting is required when the amount of heat generated by the body exceeds the ability of the fabric's breathability to diffuse body heat and moisture vapor. Our venting is designed to allow heat to escape, fresh air in to assist evaporation and an internal mesh insert to keep out the elements when open. Pit Zips, chest vents, and thigh venting are integrated into most of our garments – check your preferred style's features for CZV™. With all these features we realize just how important it is to keep you comfortable, dry and warm by moving air around your body to evacuate unwanted moisture and heat.
Optimum range of motion realized
In active sports wear, fit is everything. We pattern our garments multi-dimensionally so that each piece truly fits the needs of an active lifestyle. Next-generation jackets feature rich interiors, articulated sleeves and pattern-shaped cuffs. With Full-Motion™ articulation, garments are designed and shaped around the lifestyle of an active outdoor enthusiast to enhance comfort and a wide range-of-motion.
Waterproof Breathable Technology
The waterproofing and breathability of our products is independently tested and verified to the highest industry standards by SGS Testing Laboratories. Keeping you dry on the mountain is priority number one, but you also need to be able to let your body breathe as you go through the day. The combination of these to elements makes for a long and satisfying day out there in your Obermeyer gear.
