breathablet-sy g

Breathable garments allow moisture and vapour out, for the most 'active' user. In a breathable garment, you’ll can be nice and snug, but you won’t be sitting in a bin-liner sweating.

cordura-symbol -arktis.jpg

Garments made of Cordura fabric are as hardy and durable as they come. Cordura is tear- and scuff-resistant, as well as being water-repellent. It will hold up in the worst of terrain. This material is usually used for bags and vests.

Trousers with this symbol have extra padding on the knees for added protection and warmth. This can be removable like our C222 trousers, or a fixed reinforcement section like the C130. 

lightweight-sy g

Many of our garments are quite heavy, and can weigh several kilos, with many layers, in order to keep warmth in, and nature out. Lightweight garments, while still warm and dry, have fewer layers, but more portability. Some, like our Stowaway Shirt, are even self-contained, and can be carried in a pocket.
50-50-ripstop- symbol-arktis. jpg
This special, sturdy fabric has a very distinctive cross-weave, which can be seen with the naked eye. It is designed to prevent tears from spreading, but also allows a snagged part of a garment to be torn away easily, so the wearer is not dragged with it. Garments made with ripstop will be especially strong, but also very safe. Note this fabric has DWR finish!
taped-seams-sy g
Garments will have a strip of clear plastic covering all seams. This provides another layer of waterproofing, and will prevent any moisture from entering through the seams.
warm-symbol-ar ktis.jpg
All of our garments will provide an element of warmth and protection, but garments with this symbol will have several layers, and/or a lining made of fleece or fur. These will keep the wearer warm and comfortable even in the worst conditions.
waterproof-sym bol-arktis.jpg
These garments are absolutely impervious to water, and will stay dry no matter what. You could probably take a shower in an Arktis waterproof coat, and come out bone dry
water-repellen t-symbol-arkti s.jpg
Water resistant garments will provide excellent protection in wet and rainy conditions, for extended periods of time; however, if exposed for too long, the garment may soak through the seams, and require drying.
water-proof-dr opliner-symbol -arktis.jpg
