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.

Sebastian Cuina in Patagonia

Hi guys!

How are you? I am writting because I have some news:
I will be running in Patagonia next week. The name of the Race is „4 Refugios“ (Four mountains shelters), and it covers 4 mountain shelters in two days running. It is a trail running race. The place will be Bariloche, it is a well known ski centre in Patagonia (it is the biggest). It is ending summer here, but at 2.500 mts in height the wind and the cold show up.

I will write you as soon as I finish, and I hope to have some nice pictures to send you too. I wish everything to be great there,

Regards, Sebastian

Sebastian Cuina

This is Sebastian Cuina, he is an orienteer in Argentina:

It was a hard race, 80 kilometers in two stages of 40. Each stage had 2.000 meters of altitude difference. We (a friend and I) made them in 17 hours. We are not going to be recognized, even in a 100 years from now for our challenge, but we are happy about our performance. We only had 2 and a half months of training. But it just was the beginning…

I still don’t have a lot of pictures, I am sending you just a few. I hope to find some in the next days. Even though, I am attaching two. What you see behind me is the Nahuel Huapi Lake, and the Tronador Mountain. Tronador has snow every year, and there is a glaciar on the top. I am running there to the Cerro Lopez Summit.

I want to apologize because I do not use the jacket, but temperature was 35°C, so I was running with a short slave T-shirt.

As soon as I get more pics, I will send them to you. Next step, I think it will be in May, at Cordoba Province, hiking Cerro Champaqui. There it is going to be COOOOLDDDD.

See you, Sebastian
