Enjoy Skiing while testing new Winter Jackets

One should really buy Winter Jackets for these Moments

After all this years of skiing in the Alps I am still impressed by the mountains: when I was a student I always got up at 4 in the morning to drive with some friends from Germany to Tyrol to be the first one on the slopes. Then as a snowboarder. By now I am testing as sports designer in the Tyrolean Alps for 15 years.

Skiing still means a lot to me. But this time, when I was under way with Elisabeth, atmosphere was breathtaking. Weather was really good, nobody was around, only fresh powder and a lot of fun. Testing new gray green winter jackets by polychromelab at deep snow skiing was big fun. To enjoy these moments one should choose well and buy winter jackets of high quality. Otherwise one couldn’t enjoy freeride skiing without freezing.

In our Onlineshop you can buy winter jackets that are proven scientifically and applied inTyrol. Have a look on it in our polychromelab concept store!

New mountain jacket with new colours

Testing new colour combination of the mountain jacket

A mountain jacket not only has to offer functionality, but also has to look good. As a valuable textiles-manufacturer of course both aspects lie us to heart.

First of all, we develope jackets, that can stand even the most extreme conditions in the mountains. To test this out we expose the proto-types a few months to the unpredictable alpine weather at the Glungezer-Lab. Because a mountain jacket has to be windproof, waterproof and sturdy. Through natural erosion of wind and rain we can survey how well the material does under real conditions.

But also fashion aspects do matter to us. Because of that we develope new colour combinations, which work properly and additionaly look pretty good. First there was black-silver, then blue-bronze and now a grey-green mountain jacket. All jackets are conceptualized as reversible jackets and, if you believe it or not, the dark-coloured side warms and the bright-coloured side cools. This way the hybrid jacket not only protects from wind and weather, but also supports the wearer to regulate and stabilise body temperature.

Soon the day has come: one of the final tests is the applied test of the proto-type. Here are some pictures of a mountain run through the Alps wearing the new grey-green mountain jacket from polychromelab.

tricky avalanche conditions on south, but good weather +5 in the sun – 2 in the shadow  so we decided to go for northcouloirs and we found good snow

Test reaching -30°

today i went for a extreme temperature test in my backyard reaching 2800. with the wind it feld cold – minus 30. my watch left me reaching minus 20 but the polychrome idea works. i went up on silver outside and turned the jacket on the peak on black outside pleasant warmth reached me – not necessary to say that a downjacket as safetylayer was important today michele

In the Alps with Winter Ski Jacket

Testing Winter Ski Jacket in extreme Couloirs in Tyrol

Polychrome jacket test is going to the next stage. First prototypes are ready, but this winter ski jacket still has to be tested in application. So I decided to do one of my favourite extreme couloirs in the Tyrolean Alps. Enjoy nature, skiing on fresh snow, conditions are good as ever. It is always a pleasure to be hosted by this arena of free ride skiing.

Pictures bellow are showing today’s experience with testing the new polychrome winter ski jacket at free ride skiing. On the way down the black coloured warming side kept me comfortable warm. Waterproofness is working properly and I’m able to conclude some notices for improoving the polychrome winter ski jacket for men and women.
