Full protection from the elements
Obermeyer has been a partner with YKK® for over 50 years. In the early 2000's water repellent zippers came into production – we use the YKK® AquaGuard® Water Repellent Zipper. A waterproof polyurethane coated zipper with smooth gliding characteristics, flexibility for garment use, enhanced durability to withstand wear and pressure. Its longevity is intended for extended use in various temperature and humidity conditions. AquaGuard zippers are ideal for outdoor activities requiring moisture protection and an airtight seal. Thermoformed construction and lamination techniques are used in the fabrication of adhering the polyurethane onto the coil zipper.
