What is PrimaLoft?
The human body needs energy to keep warm. PrimaLoft uses a patented microfibre structure to retain body heat and to help save energy. PrimaLoft is just as warm as down, is compressible, unbelievably soft, light, breathable and offers a high level of water repellency to keep you dry, warm and comfortable even in the most extreme weather.
These performance characteristics and technical features make PrimaLoft the preferred insulation material for outerwear, gloves, shoes and sleeping bags.
The OutDry membrane is bonded to the uppers to give a homogeneous and breathable waterproofing system. It is laminated directly to the inside of the prefabricated shell material, without any seams or gaps, so potential water entry points are sealed perfectly. Products with OutDry offer superior fit plus greater flexibility and dexterity. They keep you dry and are also lightweight, so they are simply more comfortable to wear.
Most traditional, high-quality outer material with cult status for motorcycle clothing and accessories. Unmistakable in its natural, high-quality look, the strong image, ideally suited to both figure-hugging and highly functional designs. The biker's "second skin" still has the edge over any textile material when it comes to safety and resistance to abrasion and tearing. The way the material stretches as the clothing is worn means that leather clothing adapts to the body contours ideally, thus also guaranteeing that protectors fit optimally. Leather clothing should therefore always be bought with a close fit. Impregnation, leather oil and surface coatings guarantee good weather protection and a degree of rainproofing, but unfortunately also limit the breathability. Relatively heavy, but enthusiasts value this as a "quality feature". Looked after properly, it is very durable. Because leather does not itself offer much thermal insulation, the other features of the garment, or the base layers of clothing, must provide some help here.
