Stretch fabrics

Ease of motion and optimizing fit

Obermeyer elastane stretch fabrics

As we develop more technical fabrics with stretch we are able to provide exceptional durability and comfort. More importantly we are utilizing stretch fabrics which are lighter complementing suppleness for ease of motion and breathability. 

Elastane is infused in the fabric to creating a consistent weave and not two different fibers being interwoven. Elastane is manufactured differently from spandex, resulting in unique qualities that provide comfort above and beyond traditional stretch fibers. Elastane is produced through a process of melt extrusion, which doesn’t require the use of solvents. The melt extrusion process is cleaner; resulting in finer and stronger monofilaments than traditional spandex, resulting in superior dynamic stretch.
