DrymaxX®

DrymaxX® brand clothing is designed to perform in extreme conditions. It provides protection and comfort in wind, rain and snow. A garment made from DrymaxX® fabric with the right structural features is guaranteed to perform.

Waterproof, windproof, breathable, tested.

DrymaxX® is a water- and windproof, breathable material that’s suitable for use even in severe conditions. The material’s properties are determined by the DrymaxX® membrane. DrymaxX® membrane is bonded to the garment’s surface and/or lining fabric, depending on the garment’s intended use.

Construction of DrymaxX® products

DrymaxX® fabric on its own is not enough to make a product waterproof. DrymaxX® products are designed and manufactured in such a way that their construction prevents moisture getting inside. All seams are protected with seam tape. Embroidery and logos are taped on the inside of the product. Pockets, zips and vents are designed so as not to let moisture inside the product. Besides clothing, DrymaxX® is used in footwear and gloves.

Washing and care instructions for DrymaxX® products

DrymaxX® products must be washed separately, inside out. Spinning, tumble drying and wringing may damage the product. Do not dry clean. Specific washing instructions for each DrymaxX product can be found on the care label.

Don’t damage the DrymaxX® membrane!

The DrymaxX® membrane may be damaged by perforations caused by safety pins, etc. If a DrymaxX® product develops a tear or hole, it must be taped after sewing to ensure that it is waterproofed. The use of waterproofing substances containing silicone is not recommended.

Other materials used by Halti

Active dry ®

is an effective material that transfers moisture from the skin and maintains a pleasant and dry feel, even in intense use. The material does not absorb water itself, so it dries quickly. Materials manufactured with the Active Dry® technology are used in technical shirts and pants, lining fabrics, underwear and layering garments. Latest superior performance, Halti presents Active Dry® Pique quality which use combination with latest knitting and print technology: special print on inner surface makes cooling effect both to skin and microclimate between skin and fabric!

Active Dry® materials in base and mid layers:

  • Active Dry® Cool serie includes product for high active use as base layer next to skin.
  • Active Dry® Warm serie brings warm – materials have brushed inner surface to achieve more warm. Products made of this material are suitable to be used as a mid and as abase layer, also next to skin.

is a material that efficiently wicks moisture away from your skin and keeps you feeling pleasantly dry, even in intense use. The material does not absorb water itself, so it dries quickly. Active Dry is particularly suitable for wear as a base layer against bare skin in active sports.

Airlite

Products that are light as possible and can easily be packed for example into the items own pocket and/or hood. Airlite products carry the Weight Series marking, indicating the weight class of the product. The Weight Series value ( 50,100, 200 etc) is determined according to the measured weight in size M for men and size 38 for women. The value is not definitive. For example, the weight of Weight Serie 200 product is 200-299g.  

Arcty®

materials represent the latest generation of high-tech heat insulation materials. Arcty® grades are ideal for mid layers, because their porous microstructure efficiently wicks moisture away from the base layer to the outermost layers of clothing. Excellent breathability and an exceptional weight to heat insulation ratio make Arcty® fabrics the best possible protection against cold weather.

Bi-Density Structure 

Is fabric weaving technic, which use two different kind of weaving type in same fabric. Bi-Density structured fabric two kind of surfaces, plain and patterned, vary at certain intervals so that the same product can be of two different weave appearance without seams.

Body mapping

Body mapping is an innovation that allows the user to adjust the jacket’s warmth to suit the weather and the intensity of exercise. You can make the jacket warmer by attaching separate thermal elements to it. These provide warmth in the right areas without overheating other parts of the body. These thermal elements are easy to attach and remove.

Cotton Serie

A material family consisting of 100 % cotton, cotton-polyester and cotton-elastane mixtures. These materials are good for casual clothing. They feel pleasant and airy against the skin. Cotton Serie material family includes also organic cotton qualities. Organic cotton is produced without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides. Organic cotton is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment.

Down

PrimaLoft® 

PrimaLoft® wadding technology originated from the needs of the US military to develop a synthetic water resistant option to down. The PrimaLoft® wadding technology is based on the smallest fibres the technology has to offer. The fibre size is less than 1 denier (the average fibre size is 2.5-6 denier). These extremely small fibres are able to bind volumes of air inside their wadding structure, resulting in excellent warmth and lightness. PrimaLoft® also repeals water effectively and dries quickly. This is based on the fibre structure and a permanent water resistance treatment added to the fibre. The treatment of PrimaLoft® fibres reduces the capacity of the fibres absorb moisture while makeing it water-resistant. PrimaLoft® wadding is the best option for cold and wet condition.
