Testing Outdoor Apparel Behind our House

Alpine Proof Behind our House – Testing Outdoor Apparel

Polychromelab found their new site in Serfaus.Fiss.Ladis, because in next to no time we get from the shop up to the exposed high altitude alpine lab for testing outdoor apparel. At the official opening of Alpine Proof outdoor lab Location Agency Tyrol was a guest. Here’s the German press release.

Behind our house we start. It takes a few minutes to get to Fiss’ mountain railways to Schönjoch and soon after we reach our high altitude alpine lab on 2436 meters. At this time of the year temperatures are freezing. Up here snow and wind wear off outdoor apparel. At the moment we’re testing bivouac bags made of two different types of fabric. The manufacturer wants to know, which model is more breathable.

Up here we learn about this easily. We attach sensors inside the bivouac bags to measure the inner temperature. At the tower for blusting avalanches right next to Alpine Proof outdoor lab we have a meteo station. Gerhard Rietzler made a very great job installing this: to get significant values testing outdoor apparel we compare data from inside the bivouac bags with those of the meteo station. This way we can read which fabric is more breathable.

This is how we run first outdoor apparel test right behind our house. It’s simply wonderful up here.

We sell outdoor apparel tested in the Alpine Proof outdoor lab in our polychromelab concept store here.

Der Sturm vom 6. März

Am 6. März habe ich vom Föhnsturm mit 250 km/h berichtet. Heute habe ich die Daten der Meteostation bei einem Arbeitstag im polychromelab 2610 entnommen. Schau sie dir genauer an. Der Sturm erreichte sogar 283 km/h.

Das sind Bedingungen wie am Everest oder in Patagonien. Die Temperaturen beim Sturm waren sehr warm mit 0°C. So ist es in der Natur.

STORM DATA 6th march 2013
