HydroBlock Prime: Obermeyer independently third party tests all of its technical fabrics for performance verification. Our high performance specialty fabrics use fully coated hydrophobic laminations and a superior DWR polymer coating for stain protection and coating integrity. HydroBlock Prime resists up to 25,000mm before water penetration while allowing 25,000 grams of water vapor to pass through within a 24-hour time frame.
Fully Seam Sealed: Seams are a weak point when trying to create a completely waterproof garment. The tiny puncture holes can potentially allow water to penetrate the fabric. Seam sealing is the application of waterproof tape to the inside of the garment that aids in waterproofing.
Recco Rescue Reflector: Recco is an avalanche rescue system utilized worldwide to facilitate the rapid location of burials. The two parts, reflector and detector, enable rapid pinpointing using harmonic radar but are not a substitute for transceiver use. Complementary in function, the Recco system increases the chance of being found in time.
Control Zone Ventilation with Mesh Gussets: Strategically placed adjustable openings and closures for core thermal regulation. Different placements allow you to release and control your body temperature. Underarm vent zips, thigh vents, jacket closures with mesh gussets all insure the greatest flexibility while maintaining waterproof/windproof closures to meet the most challenging weather conditions and aerobic exertion.
Full-Motion Fusion fit - engineered construction using stretch fabric and lining
Removable Powder Skirt with Snap-Away System: A powder skirt actually performs a couple of other functions beside keeping powder snow from reaching your core section. When the skirt is snapped and in use it helps reduce heat lost from the bottom of the hem. Keeping you a bit warmer and the elements out.
Full-Motion Articulation: Garments at Obermeyer are patterned for ease of movement. Extra length in sleeves and pre-curved arms are crafted to accommodate the arms' range of motion.
