NanoPro™ MemBrain® 100% Nylon Stretch Ripstop 2.0 oz/ yd
The Marmot Essence jacket implements NanoPro MemBrain technology with 2.3 and 3-layer lamination technology to guarantee the utmost comfort and breathability a jacket can offer. The superior microprous structure enables air exchange to assist excess moisture vapor without compromising the waterproof or windproof ability of the garment. The technology implements a recent microporous technology with a pore structure 200% smaller than previous makes. These small pores (three microns in size) are tightly packed giving leeway for enhanced breathability whilst maintaining exceptional water resistance. The air permeable nature of this pore structure also allows for dynamic air exchange, the combination of the air permeability in alliance with the enhanced breathability creating a fabric, which can provide comfort through an extensive range of differentiating activities.
The NanoPro Membrane further improves the breathability function, as the lamination of microporous structure using a complex process helps reduce the amount of adhesive necessary to combine the membrane with the fabric. This process in alliance with the thinness of the lamination assists the wearer in maximum breathability, offering up to 140% more breathability than previous NanoPro technologies. Therefore an incredibly beneficial choice due to excellent water resistance and high performance suitable for lightweight 2.5 layer garments.
