Product Technologies

State of the art performance where you go, whatever the conditions.

25k waterproof breathable

HydroBlock® Prime

Obermeyer independently third party tests all of its technical fabrics for performance verification. Our high performance specialty fabrics use fully coated hydrophobic laminations and a superior DWR polymer coating for stain protection and coating integrity. HydroBlock® Prime resists up to 25,000mm before water penetration while allowing 25,000 grams of water vapor to pass through within a 24-hour time frame.

Fully seam sealed

Fully Seam Sealed

Seams are a weak point when trying to create a completely waterproof garment.  The tiny puncture holes can potentially allow water to penetrate the fabric.  Seam sealing is the application of waterproof tape to the inside of the garment that aids in waterproofing.

Reco Avalanche Rescue System

Recco® Rescue Reflector

Recco® is an avalanche rescue system utilized worldwide to facilitate the rapid location of burials. The two parts, reflector and detector, enable rapid pinpointing using harmonic radar but are not a substitute for transceiver use. Complementary in function, the Recco® system increases the chance of being found in time.

CZV™ - Control Zone Ventilation

Control Zone Ventilation™

Strategically placed adjustable openings and closures for core thermal regulation. Different placements allow you to release and control your body temperature. Underarm vent zips, thigh vents, jacket closures all insure the greatest flexibility while maintaining waterproof/windproof closures to meet the most challenging weather conditions and aerobic exertion.

Full-Motion™ Fusion fit - engineered performance construction

Full-Motion™ Fit 

Full-Motion™ Fit makes use of engineered anatomical articulation and construction design elements to enhance the garment's ability to move with the least amount of resistance. We have found that a supple fabrication is invaluable for proper fit and a wide range of motion for sports activities.

Powder skirt - integrated, water-resistant

Integrated, water-resistant powder skirt

On deep powder days an extra barrier of snow protection can be invaluable. Bottomless, overhead, and filling in on every lap - that's what were talking about. The powder skirt works like an extra gasket against snow shots finding their way to the inside of a jacket and pant waistline. No need to have a miserable mid-section when you're out ripping about.

Full-Motion™ articulated sleeves

Full-Motion™ Articulation

Garments at Obermeyer are patterned for ease of movement.  Extra length in sleeves and pre-curved arms are crafted to accommodate the arms' range of motion.
