Pertex® Quantum 

Moving fast and light can mean achieving your alpine goals and also building in a higher safety factor. Lightweight equipment can make a big difference. But lightweight clothing is not much use, if it can’t withstand the wear and tear of mountain use. Pertex® Quantum is one of the lightest, high-performance fabrics on the market. Its yarns are made of 100% nylon (polyamide). It is very thin, lightweight (35g/m2) and has a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that is extraordinarily robust and abrasion resistant. Pertex® Quantum is windproof, water resistant and highly breathable. This means it allows moisture vapour to escape to the outside. The high-performance fabric from Japan is primarily used to let insulation fully loft. It can prevent even the finest down quills from penetrating. This is why it is ideal for making ultralight insulation jackets, sleeping bags and weather protection jackets.
