Technology

MemBrain® Strata

What is it?

MemBrain Strata is Marmot's own lightweight waterproof/breathable technology: a lamination technology that rates a whopping 20,000mm in waterproof performance and 20,000 gr in breathability.

Requiring neither lining nor 3-layer construction, MemBrain Strata products are by far the lightest, most breathable garments in their categories.

How does it work?

Marmot's proprietary 2.5 layer MemBrain Strata uses micro non-organic particles on the inside of the lamination to increase durability and provide a dry touch instead of that clammy feeling you get from some other products.

The back print pattern is carefully designed to achieve the maximum durability and breathability. Abrasion tests rate 4-5 times better than regular laminates, which is why 2-layer laminates require a separate lining.

What are the benefits of this technology?

MemBrain Strata creates a soft, quiet and compressible fabric while its abrasion resistant design achieves maximum durability.

Compared to other 2.5 layer coatings in the market, our lamination is almost 100% more breathable. In addition, our laminated fabric stretches more than coated fabrics.

DriClime®

What is it?

DriClime® mesh is a bi-component denier gradient dimensional knit made of two different denier yarns. Using extremely fine deniers this knit is extremely light with superior wicking performance.

How does it work?

The larger outer yarns are a special filament yarn with an open capillary structure, which pulls the moisture away from the skin to the backside of the mesh where it spreads to increase evaporation. The dimensional structure of the knit combined with the smaller denier yarns on the backside of the mesh increase the surface area allowing for greater moisture holding capacity.

What are the benefits of this technology?

This technology increases the interior comfort of the garment by enabling the wearer to feel less clammy and more comfortable over a wide range of temperatures and conditions. The mesh prevents condensation from collecting on the skin no matter what the level of activity due to its 3 dimensional structure. The dimensional knit structure also helps by spreading the moisture over a larger surface area maximizing the efficiency of the evaporate process. This technology solves the problem of condensation and internal comfort that even the most breathable of fabrics have problems with during high intensity activities.
