High Performance Fabric Technology
Hydronaute’s high performance waterproof, highly breathable and windproof technology guarantees protection in all conditions. The combination of high performance new-age face fabrics with innovative laminate technology means superior weatherproofness and enhanced comfort.
Face Fabric Selection
The face fabric is a crucial factor in the performance of Mont Hydronaute™ garments. It affects the durability, breathability and ‘feel’ of Hydronaute™. Our access to the most advanced face fabrics means that Mont Outerwear is technically superior to previously used fabric technologies. In particular, the face fabric in our Bushwalking range has increased abrasion resistance, tear strength and pinhole resistance.
Comfort in the Extreme
In all conditions Hydronaute PRO™ provides a superior level of performance, delivering significantly enhanced breathability while maintaining a totally weatherproof and windproof barrier. Leaving in its wake the limitations of microporous technologies, Hydronaute PRO™ fabrics, with their Hydrophyllic membranes, extend the range of breathable performance in real conditions, and raises the benchmark for durable waterproof breathable technology.
Hydronaute PRO™ – Superior Breathability.
Hydronaute PRO™ utilises the latest technology in bonding the breathable membrane to the face fabric. Unlike the bonding agents of most microporous fabrics which clog pores, Hydronaute PRO’s is breathable in itself. This allows for a greater volume of moisture vapour to be transported through the membrane.
This new adhesive also allows for a much stronger lamination between the membrane and face fabric resulting in a high level of durability. The most durable waterproof breathable technology is now here.
Hydronaute Ultra 2.5
In all conditions, Hydronaute Ultra 2.5™ provides the ultimate in lightweight performance — delivering a high level of breathability while maintaining a totally waterproof and windproof barrier. The combination of a lightweight face fabric, a highly waterproof breathable membrane and a unique printed polymer finish, provides superior performance in the harshest of conditions. Hydronaute Ultra 2.5™ is the perfect balance between compact, lightweight and waterproof breathable technology.
A printed polymer finish, applied to the membrane, enhances durability and eliminates the need for a bulky tricot mesh lining. This unique ‘dry touch’ finish dramatically improves next to skin comfort and breathability. The result is one of increased durability and comfort in a lightweight, compact, performance shell.
Hydronaute XT™ is the only choice when it comes to the protection of your down products from wind and moisture. Hydronaute XT™ has been developed specifically to protect and enhance the performance of sleeping bags and down clothing. It makes the best insulation even better.
The Hydronaute XT™ membrane technology and lamination process is extremely durable and unlike lightly coated or silicon finished products will not diminish so the performance of your down product will be maintained for many years.
Protection inside and out
Hydronaute XT™ protects down from moisture on the outside, but it’s on the inside of the bag where Hydronaute XT™ really proves its worth. Moisture vapour produced by the body can condense in the down of the sleeping bag reducing it’s ability to loft. With Hydronaute XT™, moisture vapour is pulled through the membrane via a molecular chain keeping down drier, maintaining loft and ensuring a more comfortable sleep.
