OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2007

The unique textile changes its thermal conductance characteristics by thermal irradiation. While the patented 3D BionicSphere® system ensures the cooling process, the external reflector material forms a protective layer which repulses incoming thermal rays – the same principle as for the fur of a fennec. At the same time, the material distributes the hiker’s perspiration onto his or her skin where it evaporates, intensifying the cooling effect. The result: better performance. Shoulder and back pads on the rucksack contact zones act as a buffer and also serve to target aeration to the back, shoulders and waist belts.
