THE BIG ADVANTAGE OF TEXAPORE IS THE BROAD BANDWIDTH OF DIFFERENT FABRICS AVAILABLE.

Which means that whether you are hiking, running, climbing or travelling with a big rucksack you will find the right TEXAPORE shell for any kind of activity.

We use various construction technologies for our TEXAPORE fabrics, from membranes and coatings to hybrid constructions and laminate linings. This enables us to address the specific levels of breathability and waterproofness that various outdoor activities require.

The weather protection layer is combined with a face (outer) fabric, which determines the additional characteristics, e.g. durability, texture and weight. As a rule, this is a 2 layer construction (face fabric + weather protection layer). In the 2.5 and 3 layer versions, a special layer or lining protects the weather protection layer; this is laminated to the weather protection layer and the face fabric.

2L

double-layered construction

Jackets and trousers with a double-layered construction are equipped with a loose lining. This means that they are slightly heavier and don’t pack down quite as small as triple-layered products. In double-layered TEXAPORE materials, the coating or membrane is permanently bound to the woven shell (support material).

Activities: day trips, weekend trips

TEXAPORE-Examples:

  • TEXAPORE 2L
  • TEXAPORE AIR 2L
  • TEXAPORE O2+ 2L
2.5L

2.5-layered construction

In 2.5-layered TEXAPORE materials, the coating or membrane is permanently bound to the woven shell (support material) and is covered with an ultra-thin protective layer on the inside, meaning there is no need for a separate lining. 2.5-layered materials make extremely lightweight clothing with a very small pack size, but are also less hard-wearing than double-layered and triple-layered materials.

Activities: biking, trail running, etc.

TEXAPORE-Examples:

  • TEXAPORE 2.5L
3L

Triple-layered construction

The three components of triple-layered TEXAPORE materials are the shell, lining and the waterproof, breathable TEXAPORE membrane in between. All three layers are permanently bound to one another. Since the membrane is protected from either side by either a woven or a knitted material, this combination is very hard-wearing, yet still relatively lightweight and packs down small – perfect for trekking and mountain tours.

Activities: treks of several days, alpine hiking

TEXAPORE examples:

  • TEXAPORE O+ 3L
  • TEXAPORE INFINITY 3L
  • TEXAPORE O+ HYPROOF 3L
LINING

LINING

TEXAPORE is also used in the form of a waterproof and breathable liner. The advantage here lies in the fact that only the seams of the liner itself need to be sealed, which allows greater freedom in the design and cut of the garment and gives the face fabric a more casual and flowing drape.

Activities: day trips, weekend trips

  • TEXAPORE Z-LINER: Here, a pore-free, high stretch membrane is laminated to a lightweight and wafer-thin support fabric and hung as an extra layer between the face fabric and the inner lining of the garment.

TEXAPORE/TEXAPORE O2+/TEXAPORE INFINITY: The materials in this group are classic “hardshell” materials: always waterproof, windproof and breathable. These laminates come with two, 2.5 or three layers and are made from a material with a microporous PU coating or a membrane.

TEXAPORE AIR: A special feature of these weatherproof materials: they are not only waterproof and windproof, but also air-permeable. A permanent exchange of air maintains breathability. This increases with a person’s movement, as activity strengthens the exchange of air. We call it dynamic breathability. The two-ply laminates consist of a layer of fabric and a microporous PU coating or membrane.

TEXAPORE SOFTSHELL/TEXAPORE SOTFSHELL O2+/TEXAPORE SOFTSHELL INFINITY: The triple-layered laminates in this category are softshell materials featuring seams sealed with special waterproof tape to make them completely waterproof. The laminates are made from a soft fabric and a microporous or imporous PU membrane. Aside from the usual weatherproof properties, these materials are also very stretchy and have a high wear comfort thanks to the soft interior often associated with functional shirts.

JASPER JACKET MEN/WOMEN

This sporty short hiking jacket provides technical weather protection and a high level of climate comfort. it's waterproof and windproof, as you would expect, but also air-permeable and therefore dynamically breathable, meaning the more you move, the more moisture vapour transmission there is.

CHARGED ATMOSPHERE MEN/WOMEN

The waterproof CHARGED ATMOSPHERE softshell: your guarantee of optimal weather protection for physically intense endurance sports.

The three-layered softshell provides not only weather protection, but also excellent breathability and maximum stretch comfort. The soft interior feels pleasant on the skin. An attachment on the front zip prevents the unzipped jacket from flying open when moving quickly. The hood can be adjusted to fit your head perfectly.

HIGH AMPERAGE JACKET MEN/WOMEN

High-quality apparel for challenging adventures: the triple-layer weatherproof HIGH AMPERAGE softshell is the technical highlight of 2014. It unites the advantages of hardshells and softshells, by combining maximum breathabilty with extreme waterproofness and high elasticity.

The outer material is robust and the interior is comfortable to wear. The two-way ventilation zips mean that the airflow can be regulated in a targeted way. The stow-away hood is cut so that a helmet fits under it.

STELLAR ASCENT MEN/WOMEN

When you're looking for the perfect weather protection for demanding alpine tours, the triple-layer STELLAR ASCENT jacket is the right choice. It's extremely waterproof, windproof and very breathable. The robust outer material is stretchy and provides plenty of freedom of movement.

The long ventilation zips facilitate additional ventilation. The stow-away hood is cut so that you can wear a helmet underneath. The side pockets are set slightly higher, making it easy access to their contents even when wearing a rucksack with a waist belt.

STELLAR LIGHTNING MEN/WOMEN

"Reduction in perfection" is the motto behind this alpine jacket made from especially light and extremely breathable weatherproof laminate. When packed up small, it disappears into any rucksack.

The men's model weighs just under 365 g (size L) The fine structure of the inside layer means this jacket feels softer against the skin than most other three-ply jackets. The side pockets are set higher up, so that you can still access their contents when wearing a rucksack with a waist belt. In keeping with the jacket's concept, the hood can be simply stowed away.

TEXAPORE performance levels
TEXAPORE is the generic term for a range of breathable, weatherproof shell fabrics. To meet the varying demands placed on weatherproof shells by different kinds of outdoor activities we have developed several different versions of TEXAPORE with different performance levels. The performance levels are differentiated by their ratings for waterproofness and breathability and by their types of construction.

TEXAPORE – ALL THE PROOF YOU NEED. GUARANTEED.
