Based on the principle of heat transfer, hot air evaporates upwards. Thanks to the special Breathing System structure, sweat goes through the 3D Spacer, coming out of the breathing tape made of a special breathing and waterproof membrane that works in two ways – to expel humidity and to keep water from entering. Lab tests show that the Geox patent increases the garment breathability level by 40%. Benefi ts are glaring: with the Geox system, clothes stay dry, perceived humidity drops, cold caused by excessive sweating and sudden cold drafts are cut down to zero.
RIPSTOP is a lightweight fabric borrowed from the world of military clothing. Its structure consists of warp and weft reinforcement threads interwoven at regular intervals that create the typical crosshatch pattern and make this fabric extremely resistant to tearing. This structure prevents tears from enlarging, as they are “enclosed” within the reinforcement threads.
A special windproof membrane guarantees a breathable fabric suitable for outdoor use in every weather conditions.
