Acclaimed technical apparel designer Conroy Nachtigall was commissioned by The Dyneema Project to develop an alpine jacket of tomorrow using Dyneema Composite Fabric. Fifteen times stronger than steel, Dyneema is world’s strongest and lightest fibre that floats on water and has long been used to moor oilrigs, stop bullets and repair human ligaments.

As a fabric component, Dyneema technology was first applied to sailcloth for the winning yacht of America’s Cup 1992. Since then, Dyneema Composite Fabrics have been engineered with a whole range of different properties like breathability, colours, solar reflectivity, various sensors and telecommunication abilities among others for many different applications.

Currently, Dyneema Composite Fabrics are spearheading a revolution in the performance sports apparel industry.

“Dyneema Composite Fabric is a precise high-tech material yet still looks unfinished and raw due to its signature crinkly look. It is a fabric but is not a fabric – bonded instead of woven, super lightweight yet super tough. Dyneema shifts perceptions. And that is what I try to do with apparel: to have the wearer shift their idea of what they can do based on what they are wearing,” said Nachtigall.

A short documentary called ‘Sending It’ covers the positive response received by the jacket – the strongest and lightest ever made – when it is tried by some of the big names living in Canadian extreme sports capital Squamish.

“Being out on the mountains you are at mercy of nature, so this durability factor is huge when you are looking for a jacket,” said skier Dana Flahr.

“It feels like you are not wearing anything! And I still feel warm,” said snowboard photographer Phil Tifo.

The jacket and the accompanying film ‘Sending It’ is part of The Dyneema Project. This curated program brings together trailblazers – cutting-edge brands and state-of-the-art mills – to create fabrics and performance-inspired apparel, footwear and accessories that are stronger, lighter, smarter and more durable and comfortable than anything currently available.
