Technology

NanoPro™ Membrain

What is it?

The pinnacle of 2.5 layer lamination technology Marmot NanoPro Membrain™ is our most comfortable waterproof/breathable technology ever. NanoPro's™ superior microporous structure is dynamically air permeable, allowing for air exchange to help shed excess moisture vapor without compromising the waterproofness or windproofness of the garment.

How does it work?

Marmot NanoPro Membrain™ utilizes a new microporous lamination technology with a pore structure that is 200% smaller than previous generations. These very small pores (three microns in size) are very densely packed allowing for enhanced breathability while maintaining excellent waterproofness. This pore structure is also air permeable allowing for dynamic air exchange. This air permeability combined with the enhanced breathability creates a fabric that is incredible comfort through a wide range of actives.

To further improve breathability NanoPro Membrain™ is laminated together using a new advance process that reduces the amount of adhesive necessary to bond the membrane with the fabric. This new lamination process combined with the thinness of the lamination helps to maximum breathability, and greatly improves the drape and hand of the fabric.

What are the benefits of this technology?

Quiet with a soft supple hand, Marmot NanoPro Membrain™ technology has created the most comfortable 2.5 Layer fabrics that we have ever offered. Up to 140% more breathable then our previous 2.5 lamination technology, its unsurpassed breathability and superb waterproofness make it our high performance choice for lightweight 2.5 Layer garments.
