Eco-Blue ski jacket wins ispo European Ski Award

Its combination of functionality, fashion and environmental compatibility wins over the panel of judges. The fully recyclable, environmentally friendly “Eco-Blue” ski jacket is a worthy recipient of the prestigious ispo European Ski Award.

It's official: Sympatex, the Munich-based functional clothing specialist, has won the prestigious ispo European Ski Award for the second time in a row – its third ispo award in just one year.

Sympatex also took home the award for the best product in the Skiwear category at the last ispo Winter 2007 for its heat-reflecting Reflexion laminate.

And the company quickly followed up that success with another at ispo Sport & Style in summer 2007. This time the company beat all competition in the Footwear category with its Airflow concept shoe with added High2Out feature.

Along with the ispo Outdoor Award and the ispo Boardsports Award, the European Ski Award is one of the most important prizes in the sporting goods industry.

This was what won over the panel of judges:
Environmental compatibility: The jacket particularly impressed with its unique materials, all of which are made exclusively from recycled raw materials.

The Sympatex laminate is made from polyester-polyether copolymer, which consists entirely of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.

Unlike other breathable membranes, which contain fluorocarbons and isocyanide derivatives from ester and ester groups, Sympatex polymers are similar to natural substances, meaning that they can be broken down by naturally occurring enzymes into harmless water and carbon dioxide.

This eco-laminate is created from a combination of the Sympatex membrane and a polyester material that is manufactured from recycled PET bottles, resulting in an end product of which 90% is derived from recycled polymers.

As PET is extremely compatible with Sympatex polymers, all eco-laminates can be melted down and recycled easily. The small number of metal accessories used can be easily separated using a magnet.
