Powered by Burlington’s XALT™ Garment System, Wolfskin Tech Lab collection by Jack Wolfskin was awarded the ISPO Gold Award for its Storm Shell jacket. The waterproof and windproof jacket for men and women is the highlight of the new Wolfskin Tech Lab collection. The jacket boasts an ultra-clean look with no visible seams inside or outside the garment made possible by the technologically advanced XALT™ Garment System.
Where are the seams? Burlington’s new XALT™ Garment System changes the look and function of extreme outer garments with its invisible, reinforced seam structure. The XALT GS technology combines the best components of soft-shell and hard-shell garment constructions to create a revolutionary seam technology that is not exposed or taped as in traditional garments but instead uses innovative laminated fabrics that produce a highly engineered and flexible garment.
“We are very excited to have partnered with Jack Wolfskin in the design and of their award winning Storm Shell Jacket,” says Nelson Bebo, Vice President, Technical Sales Development for Burlington. “The proprietary XALT technology allows us to create laminated seams that are both impermeable and invisible which gives the garment a clean, sleek look both inside and out and it eliminates any abrasive or irritating seams inside. The first question most people ask when they see the garment is ‘Where are the seams?’.”
XALT GS is part of the larger XALT – Xtreme Allweather Laminate Technology – family of advanced proprietary fabrics introduced by Burlington in 2016. XALT fabrics are unique allowing for the design of comfortable, quiet, breathable, insulated, stretchable, abrasion resistant, waterproof and windproof garments that also offer reverse design flexibility.
