Nylon 6 is used in a wide range of products that require high strength materials. It is widely used for gears and bearings in the automotive industry. It is used in toothbrush bristles, as a thread for surgical seams and strings for acoustic and classical musical instruments, including guitars and violins. It is also used in the production of a large number of threads, ropes, fibers, nets and cords for tires.
Nylon 6 has the potential to be reused as a technical raw material for the production of the new Nylon 6. It can therefore be recycled.
BHB Micro (Body Heat Barrier) is thermoinsulation material, which is set between the most powerful materials for extreme use. BHB Micro is being used in the highest series of the Pinguin sleeping bags, where substituted earlier used branded materials susch as PrimaLoft® Sport and Polarguard 3D®. Includeíng the BHB Micro into the collection was preceded by series of comparative measurements in the accredited testing laboratory where BHB Micro exhibited the highest values of thermal resistance among all branded insulating materials.
Sometimes we encounter customers who don’t want a layering system for various reasons, customers who are simply afraid of the cold, or who know they’ll need a lot of thermal support where they are going. Naturally, we try to accommodate our customers as much as we can, which is why we developed the Alaska. This jacket combines the best things about a membrane, i.e. it’s waterproof and breathable, with the excellent properties of BHB Micro synthetic insulation - great thermal insulation, packability and lightness. Whether you’re setting off for a winter skiing holiday, conquering snow-capped peaks, or doing something we couldn’t dream of in our wildest imagination, we’re sure you can do it with Alaska.

Technology supporting performance
The two-layer laminate with a laser-cut Japanese ACD membrane, with fully taped seams, will keep you dry whether you’re exposed to the rain, wind, or sweating on a strenuous climb. BHB Micro synthetic insulating fleece, which, by the way we use in our premium sleeping bags, will keep you warm wherever you go. BHB Micro is anti-allergenic, packable, lightweight, low-maintenance and insulates well, even when wet. The pockets have waterproof YKK zips, are large enough to be comfortably used with gloves, and their position means they can be easily used even when wearing a harness or backpack with a hip belt. The hood is large enough to fit over a ski helmet and can be tightened in two directions, both around the edge and horizontally at ear level to keep out the cold, but also gives you a good view and doesn’t restrict that highly important peripheral vision on the ski slopes.
A summer shower or a cloudburst
The two-layer laminate with a highly flexible ACD membrane boasts a water column of 20,000 mm and breathability of 25,000 gH2O/m2. In simple terms, this means that if you kneel in mud, for example, assuming the contact area is 10 cm2, you can weigh up to 200 kg and the membrane will not soak through. Two-layer laminate simply means that the membrane is pressed together with the top layer of fabric with a mesh lining on the inside to protect against mechanical damage.
