Paw Prints in History
Posted by Neil | October 19, 2011
The outdoors is their passion - and their speciality.
From weekend walkers to habitual wanderers in the wilderness, converts to the countryside or hardcore mountain maestros, Jack Wolfskin have it all for professionals and amateurs alike.
Outdoor clothing specialists for 20 years, Jack Wolfskin have something for all those with one common interest - a love of the great outdoors and a desire to enjoy it to the full.
Whether you're looking for a cosy fleece
to ward off the winter chill, or a stand-alone waterproof
with a quick zip-in system to turn it into a storm-proof 3-in-1, Jack Wolfskin will have exactly what you need.
Their first-class, functional clothing has developed through constant user feedback and proprietary technology, and today their iconic paw print logo is recognised all over the world.
A combination of all-round weather protection and huge comfort levels has left many more experienced manufacturers floundering in their wake, propelling Jack Wolfskin in little over two decades into one of the top three largest outdoor wear companies in Europe.
Jack Wolfskin’s trademark Texapore fabrics include over three dozen different finishes, mostly featuring waterproof and breathable weather-protective shells with a very thin microporus membrane.
The pore size is too small to allow drops of rain to penetrate, yet large enough for moisture vapour to escape.
This process of diffusion will prevent damp air collecting inside your clothing, helping to control your core temperature and creating a comfortable internal climate, even during extensive rain.
Texapore Smoothlight - as used in Jack Wolfskin’s Topaz Jacket - is supple, very breathable, and promises superb comfort and temperature control. With its low instrinsic weight and durably robust material, the microporus coating applied to the the inner surface delivers a high MVTR - Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate - and an equally-impressive water column of 6,000mm.
Jack Wolfskin has just arrived at Gear-Zone - check out our range of fleece and waterproof jackets including the Moonrise and Icedancer for men and women, and the Gecko microfleece for men.
Just as well-known for their backpacks and rucksacks too, Jack Wolfskin's biker- and hiker-friendly Moab Jam and Bike and Hike 18 daypacks are also available.
