What is it?
The pinnacle of 2.5-layer lamination technology, NanoPro Membrain is their most comfortable waterproof/breathable technology ever. NanoPro's superior microporous structure is dynamically air permeable, allowing for air exchange to help shed excess moisture vapor without compromising the waterproofness or windproofness of the garment.
How does it work?
NanoPro utilizes a microporous lamination technology with a pore structure that is 200% smaller than previous generations. These very small pores (three microns in size) are very densely packed, allowing for enhanced breathability while maintaining excellent waterproofness. This pore structure is also air permeable allowing for dynamic air exchange. This air permeability combined with the enhanced breathability creates a fabric that has incredible comfort through a wide range of activities.
To further improve breathability, NanoPro is laminated together using an advanced process that reduces the amount of adhesive necessary to bond the membrane with the fabric. This new lamination process combined with the thinness of the lamination helps to maximize breathability, and greatly improves the drape and hand of the fabric.
What are the benefits of this technology?
Quiet with a soft supple hand, NanoPro is the most comfortable 2.5-layer fabric that Marmot has ever offered. Up to 140% more breathable then previous lamination technologies, its unsurpassed breathability and superb waterproofness makes it their high performance choice for lightweight 2.5-layer garments.
