Premium outdoor children’s clothing and accessories manufacturer, Isbjörn of Sweden, has announced to introduce a 3-layer construction in outdoor apparels for kids which will be launched for the Autumn/Winter 2017-18 season. With this, Isbjörn of Sweden has become the first ever brand, as per the company’s claim, which has introduced 3-layer construction technology.
The technical 3-layer construction of the Isbjörn Expedition – hard shell jacket and pant – comprises of a high-performance membrane which is bonded to the hard-wearing outer material and a comfortable inner lining. This construction limits movement between the three layers, which can increase durability and reduce wear and tear.
According to the brand, the high-performance waterproof membrane – made from Bluesign approved fabric – has a water pillar of 15,000 mm and ventilation capability of 15,000 gr/m2/24hrs. The outer material has a water-repellent finish, achieved with Bionic-Finish Eco, a hydrophobic treatment which is claimed not to release flouro-organic compounds into the atmosphere. The Expedition range also includes a Recco reflector, which is designed to enable rescue teams to pinpoint the wearer’s precise location in the event of an avalanche.
Additionally, the company explains, “All Isbjörn of Sweden hard shell products are 100 per cent seam sealed and offer waterproof zippers with the highest quality from YKK, giving teenagers’ equipment worthy of a true adventure and keeping them perfectly in sync with the elements.”
