Sympatex announces new partnership with Lib Tech


Presentation of individualized product solutions at Outdoor Retailer and SIA 2015

Boston, MA - January 16, 2015 – Once again, Sympatex Technologies will be exhibiting at Outdoor Retailer (booth #39040) as a silver sponsor and at SIA Snow Show (booth #S408) in the Sourcing Snow pavilion. During both shows the ecological alternative among functional textile specialists will highlight its new partnership with Lib Tech who has embraced the individualizing options available with Sympatex in their new Strait Science 3 layer jacket and bib.

“We are stoked to partner with Sympatex to offer a highly technical waterproof/breathable jacket and bib found in the Strait Science Series in our 15/16 Lib Tech outerwear. Rider designed, Storm Factory tested, Sympatex performed in the harshest of conditions”, said Pete Saari, Co-Founder and VP of Creative at Lib Tech. “The commitment of Sympatex in sustainable and ecological production matched up perfectly with our environmental values. It feels great to know that Sympatex is as excited about the future of this partnership as we are and will be displaying the Strait Science jacket and bib in their booth.”

In addition, Sympatex will present a variety of new textile combination possibilities within its portfolio at the shows: Innovative sustainable material mixes, different treatment options and the individualization of backings and tapes to create unique one of a kind garments.

Sympatex will also debut the new product line categories “Allround” and “Performance Plus”, which offer an even more balanced differentiation between several performance levels. This will become evident with a new hangtag concept, which will be introduced at the POS in 2015.

In addition, Sympatex will be the title sponsor of the “Trail of Change” (TOC) for the second time in a row. The long-term scientific expedition project of the geomorphologist Hannes Künkel investigates the effects of the climate change on the Himalayans. The recently finished second expedition has clearly shown the consequences of the change for mankind and nature in Nepal's Annapurna Himal.
