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

CZV™ – Control Zone Ventilation

Thermal venting
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.
Full-Motion™ Articulation

Full-Motion™ Articulation

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

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.
