Berghaus extends Colourkind for Gore-Tex's new line

For fall/winter 2016, Berghaus has extended its award-winning Colourkind dyeing technology to waterproofs in an exclusive partnership with Gore-Tex.

According to a Berghaus press release, Colourkind is a fabric dyeing technology that is kinder to the environment, with a particular focus on water.

Compared with regular processes, Colourkind fabric dyeing uses fewer stages, resulting in savings of 89 per cent in water usage, 63 per cent fewer chemicals used and a 60 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions.

“This is done by adding colour to the nylon chips before they are extruded into fibres, which also results in a higher quality fabric with improved colour fastness,” the company said.

Working closely with Gore-Tex, Berghaus has now used this ground breaking technology to bring a new waterproof fabric innovation to the outdoor market.

The fabrics combine a waterproof and breathable 2L Gore-Tex membrane with a 40 denier ripstop nylon Colourkind face and are featured in the Island Peak collection of men's and women's jackets and pants.

The range includes the men's Island Peak 3-in-1 Hydroloft jacket; the men's and women's Island Peak jackets; the men's and women's Island Peak 3-in-1 jackets; and the men's and women's Island Peak pants.

Berghaus has used two Colourkind face fabrics on the jackets; a plain weave 40D polyamide for the main body and a ripstop construction for key wear areas on the shoulders, arms and hem.

“Environmental impact has also been taken into consideration when choosing other materials that make up the garments,” Berghaus informed.

In the Island Peak 3-in-1 Hydroloft jacket, the Hydroloft Elite in the inner features 50 per cent recycled fibres, and recycled fleece is used in the men's and women's Island Peak 3-in-1 jackets. (AR)
