When buying a high-quality functional jacket, you should pay particular attention to the fact that it is waterproof and breathable and withstands a certain water column. But also the information about the absence of PFC and PTFE should not be ignored when choosing the right functional jacket. But what exactly are PFC and PTFE?
PFC and PTFE are chemicals that do not occur naturally. They are often used in the manufacture of outdoor clothing, as they primarily have water- and dirt-repellent properties. PFC is used to impregnate the outer material of functional clothing, while PTFE is used for the membrane, as it is particularly waterproof and windproof as well as extremely breathable. The disadvantage of both substances, however, lies in the non-degradable components and chemicals. These end up in nature and contribute to environmental pollution. PFC and PTFE can hardly be removed from nature, meanwhile these components can be detected almost everywhere in the world. Therefore, it is particularly important for nature and mankind to do without PFC and PTFE. The teXXXactive® functional jackets from camel active are 100% free of PFC & PTFE. Recycled material is even increasingly used for the waterproof, breathable membrane. So you are not only perfectly equipped for the next adventure, but also do something good for nature.
