ACTIVE STRETCH LIGHT (ASL)

PES/EL
PES/EL

The 4-way elastic double weave construction, extremely durable but also very light, offers absolute freedom of movement. The double weave has a twill structure inside. This means it lies on the skin only selectively and ensures good air circulation. At the same time, it is breathable and routes moisture to the outside very effectively. On the outside there is a smooth surface which dries very fast. The finish with PFOA-free DWR waterproofing makes the fabric water and dirt repellent.

DOUBLE DRY

PA/EL
PA/EL

A highly elastic material from Löffler’s in-house knitting factory for all sports activities where maximum freedom of movement and wearing comfort are in demand. The well-proven two-layer principle is applied for this material. On the inside, polyamide with coarser capillaries is used and on the outside a fine capillary polyamide. This results in fast and effective moisture transport to the outside.

The material dries very fast guaranteeing an optimal micro-climate. The coarser inside layer lies only partly on the skin and thus the high amount of trapped air provides for a significantly better insulation and perfect climate.

  • Highly elastic
  • 2-layer knitted
  • smooth on the outside
  • inside textured
  • therefore only partial contact with the skin
  • good thermal insulation
  • effective moisture transport
  • fast drying
