The short documentary ‘Sending It’ covers the “Wow!” response when the jacket – the strongest and lightest ever made – is tried by some big names living in Canadian extreme sports capital Squamish.
Dyneema technology has been used in many different applications over the years including airships, ultra-light hiking equipment, heart valves, and flexible circuitry but this is the first time the fabric has been used in a skiing and snowboarding jacket.
“Dyneema® Composite Fabrics is a precise high-tech material yet still looks unfinished and raw due to its signature crinkly look,” says Nachtigall. “It’s a fabric but isn’t a fabric – bonded instead of woven, super lightweight yet super tough...."
When Nachtigall’s prototype is taken for first inspection to Squamish, British Columbia – the extreme alpine sports hub of Canada – the response is a universal “Wow!”
Ok, this jacket might not stop a bullet but it looks like it might just be the coolest development to have happened in ski apparel for years.
