MATERIALS MATTER

Today there's too much hype around fabrics....


DOWNTEK ZERO PFC

A fluorocarbon-free water repellent down that uses DWR technology inspired by nature. DownTek™ ZeroPFC™ stays dry 10x longer than untreated down, meaning you stay warmer and drier.

PRIMALOFT® INSULATION

Trusted for superior water resistance, breath-ability, and compress-ability, Primaloft synthetic down is our choice for performance in a wide range of winter activities.

DURA MOTION ECO STRETCH

In cooperation with Dupont, SYNC developed our Dura Motion ECO Stretch fabric. Using 56% recycled polyester yarn and 44% Dupont Sorona, we increased stretch without sacrificing toughness. Sorona contains 37% renewable plant based ingredients, using 30% less energy and 63% fewer ghg emissions compared to nylon yarn. This results in an amazing fabric tested to 200 hours of UV resistance and 20K/20K waterproof/breathability.

MOTION 360

Our proprietary lightweight DWR waterproof/breathable interlock fabrics allow unparalleled range of motion through 360 degrees of stretch. After spending years developing the knit version, SYNC launched it with the breakthrough Stretch Puffy collection, leaving others scrambling to catch up. New for 18/19, we introduced a weave, All-Way Stretch 20k/10k version in our Headwall Bib.

RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD

All SYNC down products come from Sustainable Down Source. Through a very selective sourcing process, all SDS down comes from farms that undergo strict audit procedures to ensure that product does not come from birds that have been force-fed or live-plucked.

SUPER FABRIC

Our pant cuffs are made of a guard plating of SuperFabric®, ready to fend off rock, ice, brush, debris, scuffs, and scrapes from edges. The guard plates don't just look good, they perform day in and day out. SuperFabric® materials won't snag like knit fabrics either, and this high performing material was our first choice in making durable pants.

POLARTEC ALPHA

Originally developed for the U.S. Special Forces when they required a more advanced insulating material in their combat uniforms. This fabric is a new technology with active insulation that regulates core body temperatures during both dynamic and static activities. This latest advancement in adaptable breathability helps eliminate the need of shedding or adding layers while on the move.
