OS2O brings waterproof and air permeable eVent fabrics® technology to Spanish market
Spanish outdoor and mountain clothing brand serves Spain with five stores and online shop


Overland Park, Kansas, USA—eVent fabrics® is pleased to welcome OS2O to the group of brands that use eVent’s patented air permeable and waterproof membrane technology and fabrics. OS2O reaches outdoor enthusiasts and mountaineers in Spain through five retail stores and its online shop, specializing in apparel for mountaineers, trail runners and trekkers.

“We’re excited to welcome OS2O,” said Chad Kelly, Global Product Manager for eVent fabrics. “OS2O will bring our technical performance story directly to Spanish consumers and help convey the benefits of eVent. We expect that Spanish climbers and mountain enthusiasts will feel and appreciate eVent’s air permeable difference.”

OS2O Breathout Jacket in action

OS2O’s new Breathout Waterproof Jacket is now available in OS2O stores and online at www.os2o.com.The 300-gram jacket uses eVent’s DValpine™ waterproof and air permeable membrane, configured in a light 3-layer laminate. The fabric has a waterproof column rating greater or equal to 20,000 millimeters and a moisture vapor transport rating (MVTR) of no less than 28,500 grams/square meter. The Breathout Waterproof Jacket features an ergonomic fit, YKK AquaGuard® zippers, a helmet compatible hood, reflective logos and a one-hand hem adjustment system.

OS2O’s team believes breathability is key to staying comfortable while active in mountain conditions. According to Rivera, “After many years of research and lots of prototypes, our designers and athletes considered eVent’s Direct Venting™ technology the best option.”

OS2O Trail Team athlete Pere Rullan was one of the athletes who tested eVent. "eVent fabric has been very surprising to me,” he said. Rullan, who took 3rd place at the 2015 European Skyrunning Championships and is the Spanish Trail Running Champion, found that the Breathout’s “breathability is so high that I can wear it while running without feeling wet and uncomfortable.”

Rivera believes the Breathout Jacket offers the highest possible performance in a waterproof jacket available to the Spanish market. “It’s ready for fast and light action in the mountains,” he said.

About eVent® fabrics and eVent membrane technology
Since 1999, eVent fabrics have set the standard for truly air permeable and waterproof membranes in textiles. The technology used to create eVent membranes was invented in the 1990s to improve the pollutant-capturing performance of air filtration systems and give superior protection to industrial machinery. eVent fabrics—found in outdoor, winter sports, cycling and professional apparel and footwear—were the first air permeable and waterproof performance fabrics on the market that let the sweat out™ through Direct Venting™ technology. CLARCOR Industrial Air manufactures eVent membranes and fabrics, collaborating with worldwide suppliers to offer a broad selection of waterproof, windproof and protective textiles to companies that create apparel, footwear, shelter and accessories.
