Outdry / The Comfort Revolution
Real Waterproofness In One Step
The OutDry system is based on a patented lamination process: the waterproof and breathable membrane is bonded directly to the external glove's shell by the action of pressure and temperature, creating a unique body which seals the stitching and any other potential water entry point.
A Specific Membrane
The OutDry waterproof/breathable membrane is specifically engineered for the lamination process: it has a very high elasticity and a reduced thickness, keeping a very high tearing resistance. Membrane is cut and sealed to perfectly meet the shell volumes and guarantee the absolute fitting of the glove.
Design And Materials With No Limitations
OutDry technology is suitable for any kind of protective glove: ski, mountaineering, motorcycling, Firefighters and even... golf. There are no limitations on the shell materials (leather, fabric, etc.); moreover, OutDry reduces the need of additional water protective coating which normally reduce the glove breathability and comfort
Easy And Effective Lining Application
OutDry has developed an exclusive procedure for the insulation lining application. Thanks to this procedure the comfort and dexterity improvements are maximized. In fact, no seam or tape is placed between the shell and the lining so the finger sensitivity remain very high.
Inside OutDry gloves, the waterproof and breathable membrane is bonded directly to the external glove's shell, creating a unique body with it. Thus, with OutDry, there are no gaps between the shell and the waterproof barrier (as is the case with a conventional waterproof insert system) where the water can stagnate and create an unpleasant wet, cold sensation. For the same reason, gloves with OutDry does not get damp and dry much faster.
The OutDry membrane is specifically engineered for hand protection and comfort during sport activity. It has very high water vapor permeability, certified by the primary international testing facilities according to ISO, ASTM and JIS norms. Thanks to the direct lamination process, the absence of humidity between the membrane and the shell greatly facilitates moisture management.
The OutDry system offers the best windproof functionality. With OutDry the wind is blocked on the glove's outer surface. With a standard insert system, the air between the shell and the membrane is continuously replaced with cold air, reducing the thermal properties of the glove.
The secret behind OutDry's comfort lies with the large volume of warm, dry air which envelops your hand. This layer of air dramatically reduces the risk of condensation from excessive perspiration, and maintains stable hand temperature.
The OutDry system uniformly seals the shell's inner surface with a thin waterproof barrier (0,03 millimeter) leaving increased space for the insulation layer. OutDry provide a precise fit and increased dexterity: no need to take your gloves off.
High Quality And Durability
The materials and processes utilized by the OutDry system are engineered for durability in extreme conditions, and maintain their properties for the entire lifetime of the glove.
