Marmot once again revolutionizes the waterproof/breathable category with the introduction of Marmot NanoPro™. Marmot NanoPro's™ Dynamic Air Permeability allows for air exchange to more quickly shed moisture vapor without compromising waterproof performance or wind protection. This innovative new technology provides you with superior comfort and extraordinarily durable weather protection. Marmot NanoPro™ offers exceptional consumer value and cutting edge performance.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Marmot NanoPro™ utilizes a new microporous technology with a pore structure that is 30% smaller than previous generations. These very small, very densely packed pores allow for enhanced breathability while maintaining excellent waterproofness. This pore structure is also air permeable allowing for dynamic air exchange. Combined, this creates a fabric that is incredibly comfortable through a wide range of activities.
Protected from direct abrasion by a layer of very small non-organic particles, NanoPro™ creates a comfortable dry touch feeling next to skin.
The most comfortable 2.4-layer lamination we've ever created. Its unsurpassed breathability and superb waterproofness make it our high performance choice for lightweight 2.5-layer garments. At an impressive 47,000+ gm /24 hr breathability, it is up to 140% more breathable than our previous technology. Waterproofness 20,000+ mm.
