So-called three-layer laminate, in which the following three layers are laminated: topsheet, A.C.D. and bottom diaphragm protection. The material thus obtained is intended for extreme wear, can withstand even higher water pressure while maintaining the vapor permeability of the two-layer membrane.
Zippers of a renowned Japanese manufacturer, which are among the best in the industry in the world. Zippers of this brand guarantee quality, durability and reliability. Components of small size but of great importance, because their trouble-free functionality is usually a condition for the functionality and usability of the whole product.
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.
Summer Buddy Stratos
By removing features that you don’t always use, such as the snow collar, we achieved a lower weight and better packability, while maintaining good properties such as the membrane and cut.
The Impuls will be most appreciated by fans of alpine hiking and related sports, not just because of the hood, which easily fits over a climbing helmet, but also for the sufficiently large ventilation holes and large pockets that are readily accessible even when wearing a harness.
What’s more, although the cut is unisex, this jacket is a great fit for the ladies.

Technology supporting performance
The three-layer laminate with a laser-cut Japanese A.C.D. membrane, with fully taped seams, will keep you dry whether you’re exposed to the rain, wind, or sweating on a strenuous climb.
The pockets have waterproof YKK zips, they 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.
Large ventilation holes, also equipped with YKK Waterproof zips, ensure excellent thermoregulation even during high exertion. The hood is large enough to fit over a mountaineering helmet and can be tightened in two directions, both at the hem and horizontally at ear level, which keeps out the cold but also gives you a good view.
A summer shower or a cloudburst
The three-layer laminate with a highly flexible A.C.D. membrane boasts a water column of 30,000 mm and breathability of 25,000 g H2O/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 300 kg and the membrane will not soak through. Three-layer laminate simply means that the membrane is sandwiched between two layers of fabric - an outer and inner layer - so that it is protected against both abrasion and pore blockage.
- A cinch cord above the waist and at the bottom hem prevents the jacket from riding up
- Large ventilation holes with no lining, which would reduce their effectiveness
- Sufficiently large pockets that can be used with gloves
- Large hood that fits over most types of helmet
- The elastic cords on the hood tuck inside the jacket so they won’t get in the way
- The hood can be tightened in two directions, so that it fits snugly around your head without obstructing your view
- The pockets are positioned so that they can be easily used even when wearing a harness or a backpack with a hip belt
- The cut allows a high radius of hand movement
- High neck collar
