KANSAS CITY, Mo. — eVent fabric, maker of venting, waterproof laminate technology, recently launched a new interactive consumer website: www.eventfabrics.com

This new website is full of information on how eVent fabric sets itself apart from other waterproof, breathable technologies available. The site is broken into five easy-to-use categories:

we sweat: a brief tutorial on the mechanics of the natural process of sweat, and how eVent fabric allows you to let the sweat out.

eVent technology: information on the history of waterproof membranes and the unique properties of eVent fabrics. The eVent technology page also dispels the “Mystery of Pit Zips.”

find eVent: categorized details on the more than 60 brands worldwide where you can find eVent fabric technology. Each company has a dedicated page with information on their selection of eVent fabric products as well as links to their websites.

field testing: comprehensive reports from athletes out in the field, using eVent in the harshest of conditions from crossing the Greenland Ice Cap, to climbing in the Himalayas. Because you don't live in a lab.

industry buzz: all the news and info on eVent as it happens in the media. From Backpacker to the LA Times, eVent news as it breaks—as well as links to all eVent articles, past and present.

Entering their sixth year in the outdoor industry, eVent® fabrics has built a strong reputation as a highly-functional waterproof laminate technology with a very loyal following. Unlike other laminates on the market, eVent fabrics allow sweat to vent directly to the outside of the garment in one easy step through a process called Direct Venting™ technology. This unique process allows moisture to vent away from the body without condensing on the inside of the fabric, helping to keep the user dry no matter what the activity or conditions. Simply put, eVent fabrics let the sweat out.™
