Unveiling the Secrets of Snowboard Jacket Fabric: The Heart of Capelin-Crew Apparel

When you're soaring down a powdery slope with the wind rushing past your face, you aren't just riding on your snowboard – you're trusting your apparel to keep you warm, dry, and agile. At the very core of this trust is a crucial component: snowboard jacket fabric. For the passionate crew at Capelin-Crew, understanding and innovating in the realm of these fabrics is an enduring quest. This article dives deep into the world of snowboard jacket fabrics and highlights the significance it holds for every rider.

Why is Snowboard Jacket Fabric Important?

The answer is three-fold:

  1. Protection: The primary purpose of any snowboarding jacket is to shield you from the elements. Whether it's icy winds, blinding snow, or an unexpected rainfall, a jacket's fabric determines its capability to fend off these conditions. Most of the snowboard/ski apparels have DWR water repellent treatment. It is a very important treatment to keep all shell waterproof. 

  2. Mobility: For a snowboarder, flexibility and freedom of movement are vital. The fabric's weight, elasticity, and design play pivotal roles in allowing a rider to perform tricks, make sharp turns, and navigate the terrains with ease. Most of the lining fabrics use polyester mesh and may have some elastine contained. The purpose is to keep snowboarder flexible and the jacket breathable. 

  3. Comfort: When you're on the mountain for hours, comfort is paramount. A good snowboard jacket fabric ensures breathability, warmth, and a snug fit.

The Making of the Perfect Snowboard Jacket Fabric

To meet these essential requirements, the fabric's composition and technology come into play. Capelin-Crew has delved into extensive research, bringing forward some of the best in snowboard apparel.

  1. Waterproofing: Modern snowboard jacket fabrics are treated with durable water repellent (DWR) finishes. This makes the water bead up and roll off the fabric rather than seeping in. Ratings like 10,000mm or 20,000mm help consumers understand the level of waterproofing a jacket offers.

  2. Breathability: This is measured in grams and showcases how much vapor can pass through the fabric from inside to outside in a 24-hour period. For instance, a fabric with a 20,000g rating will be highly breathable.

  3. Insulation: The inner layer of the jacket fabric usually features insulation, made either from natural down or synthetic materials. Capelin-Crew jackets harness the latest in insulation technology, ensuring warmth without adding bulk.

  4. Seam Sealing: To enhance waterproofing, seams are sealed, ensuring that no water penetrates through the stitch lines.

  5. Eco-friendly Materials: Sustainability is the need of the hour. At Capelin-Crew, our commitment is evident in our choice of eco-friendly and sustainable snowboard jacket fabrics that do not compromise on performance.

Trends in Snowboard Jacket Fabric

Innovation doesn't stand still, especially in the world of snowboarding. The industry witnesses constant evolution, and Capelin-Crew is at the forefront of these trends:

  1. Lightweight and Strong: With advancements in fabric technology, jackets are becoming lighter without compromising on strength or durability.

  2. Smart Fabrics: These are fabrics that adapt to environmental conditions. Imagine a jacket that cools you down when you're overheating and warms you up when temperatures drop. The future is here!

  3. Customized Fits: The trend is moving towards more personalized and tailored fits. Capelin-Crew understands that each rider is unique, and our fabrics cater to individual needs, ensuring optimal performance and style.
