Learn how Cocona makes the most breathable waterproof fabric on the market.
Weird science? Maybe, but the folks at Cocona® have hit the chemistry books and created a patented technology that revolutionizes the world of waterproof & breathable outerwear.
Cocona's natural active particles use your energy (body heat) to attract any moisture that you produce and vaporizes it. An increased drying time on the inside when you sweat, results in a higher level of comfort and maintains warmth.
Cocona waterproof laminate fabrics have a slightly raised print applied to the inside. This layer sits closest to your body so the active particles can process any moisture you create while active. The other laminate layers focus on protection from outside elements (rain, snow).
Cocona fleece processes moisture with the same active particles as in the shell fabric to offer a highly breathable mid/base layer. As an integral part of the Cocona system, this layer paired with Cocona outerwear increases the performance by 100% when tested by outside labs.
All Cocona fabrics are tested & certified in their Boulder, CO. lab to ensure accelerated performance. Active particle technology has been tested by industry standards & been found to enhance the dry rate by 30-50% using AATCC test methods.
Benefits of Cocona® Technology
- Offering high waterproof protection on the outside, Cocona® manages moisture (sweat) while it's forming on the inside for next level breathability.
- Cocona® is made up of active particles that are permanently embedded as part of the fabric so the technology won't ever wash off or wear out.
- Cocona® active particles are derived from naturally occurring minerals for a more environmentally friendly technology.
