What is NEONORDIC®?
NEONORDIC® is a protective membrane of Nordic quality, inspired by the Nordic climate where functionality is of the essence. Besides protecting against wind and water, garments must also deliver high comfort and freedom of movement. Traditionally, it has been difficult to combine high protection with excellent breathability. With NEONORDIC®, we aimed to change this.
How does it work?
The NEONORDIC® membrane contains microscopic pores that are more than a thousand times smaller than a drop of water but hundreds of times larger than a steam molecule. This prevents rain from penetrating the membrane from outside, while allowing steam released from your body in the form of sweat and moisture to evaporate into the outside air.
NEONORDIC® 200 products have a water column of 20,000 mm, which is far above the minimum level required in order for a fabric to be considered waterproof. This means the fabric protects you from water and wind but allows moisture to evaporate, so that you stay dry and comfortable. NEONORDIC® is exceptionally flexible as well as hardwearing. This makes it ideal for a wide range of garments, whether they need to be light and thin or strong and rugged.
Where and how is the material made?
To assure the high quality of the membrane, we collaborate closely with the manufacturers and carefully monitor production. The material is produced in a certified factory in South Korea, which has collaborated closely with Swedteam over testing and development to create the ultimate material. The garments are manufactured in the high-tech city of Nanjing in China, by a partner highly experienced in producing garments for the Scandinavian climate to suit Scandinavian needs and sizing requirements.
Various tests are carried out to ensure the membrane meets our preferred standards. Among other things, we test breathability, UV resistance, wear resistance and water resistance.
What are the benefits for the user?
NEONORDIC® is a material developed for real hunting situations in all weather conditions. In addition to high protection, we aimed to develop a membrane that offered ample freedom of movement. With a special focus on comfort and breathability, we have engineered a light, silent, soft and exceptionally hardwearing membrane of premium quality.
