Product Technologies

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

10k waterproof breathable

HydroBlock™ Sport

Obermeyer independently third party tests all of its fabrics for performance verification. Our 10k fabrics use fully coated hydrophilic laminations and the best DWR polymer coating available. HydroBlock™ Sport resists up to 10,000mm before water penetration and 10,000 grams of water vapor can pass through within a 24-hour time frame.

Skier Critical™ seam sealing

Skier Critical™ Seam Sealing

Obermeyer has tested and determined construction seams which are critical to the overall weatherproof performance of an outerwear garment. Through pattern mapping we are able to offer the optimum level of protection, minimizing the garment's interior exposure to the elements.

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 with mesh gussets all insure the greatest flexibility while maintaining waterproof/windproof closures to meet the most challenging weather conditions and aerobic exertion.

Integrated water-resistant powder skirt

Integrated Powder Skirt with Snap-Away™ Feature

A powder skirt actually performs a couple of other functions beside keeping powder snow from reaching your core section. It has our innovative Snap-Away™ feature so you can remove the skirt for a more tailored fit.  When the skirt is snapped and in use it helps reduce heat lost from the bottom of the hem. Keeping you a bit warmer.

Custom breathable lining


Waterproofing a garment is easy.  The breathability portion is where things get technical.  Highly breathable base layer type fabric is used to create a quick reacting breathable lining.  Creating a garment that moves moisture, caused by perspiration, away from your body is critical.  Wet skin equals cold skin.
