Klaus Obermeyer is the inspiration to innovate and live a well-balanced life. When he founded the company over 60 years ago, it was his entrepreneurial spirit that drove him to combine his engineering background with his love of snowsports to create technically responsible winter clothing that would enhance the experiences of his customers. It's that same spirit that inspires Obermeyer today. As a family-run, privately held company based in Aspen, Colorado, Obermeyer is actively pursuing the goal of designing and producing more sustainable, earth-friendly products. By bringing together forward-thinking people, Obermeyer embraces new technologies and innovative ideas. With eyes on the future, Obermeyer can afford the patience to make smart choices that will affect our planet in a positive way.
Obermeyer Product Technology defines the commitment to meet the demands of function and performance. Today, more than ever, Obermeyer is designing garments that are pushing the boundaries of outer wear technologies. Introducing new systems of integrated synergistic components which create exceptional high-performance winter gear: Welcome to the Advanced Technology Series.
Obermeyer has partnered with Co-cona® for the exclusive development of this skier-specific polyesterfabric. 2.5 LAYER WATERPROOF The face of the fabric has a beautiful pattern that picks up both the light and dark shades. A 20,000mm/35,000g patented laminate with active particles is applied which reacts to body heat to increase body moisture evaporation for exceptional breathablility, proven waterproofness, and performance.
Dupont™ patented premium insulation incorporates a microfiber which traps more air pockets than other insulation. The ultra-thin non-woven membrane reflects the body's radiant heat to minimize heat loss. Its open-pore structure inhibits build-up of moisture within the membrane.
Obermeyer uses only premium down fill. It is 100% sustainable harvested from pre-qualified farms. Natural down is the best insulation available for warmth-to-weight ratio and compressibility. It has a unique structure which allows it to trap a large volume of air within a light fabric. Obermeyer utilizes a range of down fills for thermal insulation best suited for the individual garment's design.
e TEX™ is an Earth-friendly ultra blend both to the environment and the wearer. Obermeyer bamboo is being grown in a sustainable, fast-growing, non-timber forest which can be harvested time after time without effect to a natural forest. Obermeyer Bamboo Ultra Blend consists of 49% bamboo charcoal. The unique waffle mesh knit construction creates a three-dimensional pattern which is fast drying and helps keep the body warm by absorbing moisture and wicking it away to the exterior.
Genesis is our new planet-friendly highly versatile stretch fabric. A technical 2-layer 100% polyester twill mechanical stretch with a waterproof/breathable laminate (20,000mm/20,000g). EcoGenesis was specifically developed for a snug fit and yet it is very elastic for ease of movement. We incorporate a thermal buffer for retaining body heat, redirecting it to the working muscle.
Luminex, a polyester fabric, is an innovative fabric. The face of the fabric has a lamination which creates a truly unique pattern and a surprisingly illuminated sheen and wonderful hand and feel.
Obermeyer's Luxure fabric incorporates an innovative nylon twill weave. This polyester fabric provides a superior fit as well as excellent freedom of movement. The supple hand of the fabric's finish gives a luxurious feel while its 10,000mm/10,000g microporous coating adds a high degree of waterproof breathability.
Matrix utilizes a m1croporous breathable coating which is the latest generation of membrane technology. Designed to be lightweight, waterproof and breathable its cha racteristics ensure you stay dry and comfortable. The fabric face is treated with our HydroBiock®X which creates 10,000mm/10,000g waterproofness to its overall technical performance.
Obermeyer's proprietary research has developed a lightweight and non-compactible insulation into a supple thermal fiber. Skiing demands that fabrics adjust with the body's position without restricting movement. The unique synthetic composition is extremely soft, lightweight, and water resistant. One of the best insulations with a superior warmth-to-weight ratio.
Snow Silk is a unique polyester fabric which radiates a luxurious satin sheen. HydroBiock® X (1 O,OOOmm/10,000g) is applied to the underside without effecting the fabric's luminous face. DuroGuard™ DWR is applied to the exterior finish face of the fabric for added protection against stains and excessive wear.
Obermeyer has developed a highly breathable quick-drying fabric for our Solo Series of soft shells. We bond an insulator membrane to the underside of the soft shell outer fabric, providing unparalleled waterproof rating with increased breathability for comfort and warmth. A DWR stain-resistant finish is applied to the fabric for enhanced weather protection and long-lasting performance characteristics.
3M's Thinsulate™ insulation works by t rapping air molecules and the more air a material traps within a confined space, the greater its insulating value. Thinsulate™'s microfibers are far finer (10 times) than other insulation fibers so they trap more air in less space. The result: Superior thermal capacity, highly breathable, and moisture res istant.
Unity is extremely soft with a luxurious hand that allows the fabric to drape beautifully on the body. Unity also has an excellent windoproof layer of protection. The fabric face is treated with our HydroBlock® X laminate providing 10,000mm waterproofness and 10,000g breathibility.
