Obermeyer is one of the first US Ski brands to have ever partnered with Schoeller, and that proud partnership continues today. Schoeller, a Swiss-based, Bluesign certified textile manufacturer, who create high-performance, high-quality materials that we’ve relied on for decades. Schoeller’s 4-way stretch performance made it possible for us to create our Katze Suit; a one-piece ski suit that can keep up with a full day on the mountain. That means moving with you, and keeping you dry, so a full day means a full day.
Klaus Obermeyer thought about the impact we have on the planet before he even started our company. “We must step lightly” is a mantra that all Obermeyer employee’s live by. Repreve helps us pass that mantra to other earth-conscious mountain lovers. Repreve is a performance-minded textile created from recycled plastic. So while plastic is plastic, creating our apparel from waste is a start to ending our plastic waste crisis. And if it adds to your enjoyment of these wild mountains, then it’s a win win.
