As light as a feather: truly lightweight softshell touring pants made from full stretch Windproof 80 material for all kinds of fun on the mountains. Ecologically manufactured in accordance with the stringent bluesign standard. With side ventilation zips and welded leg pocket. This product was manufactured with Eco Finish and is eco-friendly, water repellent and fluorocarbon-free (PFC-free).
Highly abrasion-resistant outer material used in backpacks and clothing. Cordura outperforms all other fabrics when it comes to tear resistance, tensile force and abrasion resistance. Cordura is 10 times more durable than cotton, 3 times more durable than standard polyester and 2 times more durable than standard nylon.
80 % windproofness due to an extra dense fabric construction (weave, finish or workmanship). What remains of the wind is a pleasantly cooling breath in the microclimate, which achieves unbeatable breathability. This technology is suitable for use in windy weather conditions in high-motion mountain sports.
VAUDE products with Eco Finish are environmentally friendly and water-repellent without fluorocarbons (PFC). PFC belong to a group of chemical compounds that are used in many outdoor products to impregnate the outer fabric. They have been criticised for not being degradable, accumulating in the body and being suspected of being harmful to health. VAUDE has a clear commitment not to use PFC at all.
The high elasticity of the material is achieved by an elastane content in the material or by the way the material is knitted or woven. The stretchability of the material increases the wearing comfort and performance of the garment, as it offers great freedom of movement.
Bluesign is the world's strictest standard for environmental protection, consumer protection and occupational safety. All environmentally relevant production aspects are critically examined and permanently optimized: Material use, energy, water, waste water, exhaust air, noise, waste, handling of hazardous substances. A bluesign product may only bear this mark if at least 95 % of all product components have been certified by bluesign.
Green Shape is the VAUDE seal of approval for products that are manufactured in a particularly environmentally friendly manner. This includes the complete production cycle from development and production to maintenance and usability after use. The criteria for this are strict. The products must consist either of at least 90 percent organically grown cotton, recycled materials or the Tencel wood fibre. Furthermore, they must have been dyed with the environmentally friendly dyeing process VAUDE eColour or meet the world's strictest environmental textile standard Bluesign. VAUDE's goal is the best for man and nature.
