The letters CTX translate to Comfort, Technology, and Xtreme. The CTX™ membrane was developed using the most advanced technologies available. The membrane is completely watertight while still allowing the body to breathe. This makes the CTX™ membrane the most comfortable weather protection available – regardless of climatic conditions and temperature.
As the only membrane on the market, CTX™ was developed specifically for use in shooting and hunting clothes. This means, that the membrane offers some unique qualities, which are particularly relevant for the hunting sportsman. In addition to being completely watertight and windproof, the
CTX™ membrane is practically noiseless. This is particularly important for instance when stalking.
The technical properties of the membrane match the highly changing conditions that apply when the hunter is either physically active or sits motionless in wait for his quarry. The high degree of breathability is important because it allows moisture-rich air to escape from the body while keeping the skin completely dry. This means, that even when a person is physically active, the skin remains dry and comfortable
CTX™ Waterstop System
CTX™ Waterstop is a newly developed system that eliminates the last remaining problem with waterproof textile clothes. When the clothes become wet outside, water accumulates at the bottom of the jacket and trousers legs. This water will subsequently permeate up into the lining and underlying clothes from where it cannot escape because of the waterproof membrane.
CTX™ Waterstop System solves this problem in a simple manner. A water-repellent and waterproof barrier has been placed at the inside bottom of jackets and trouser legs. When water from the outside tries to permeate up into the lining, the barrier repels the water and the clothes stay dry inside.
CTX™ Waterstop System does not affect the breathability of the clothes.
The CTX™ membrane is tested to the following extreme standards:
20,000 mm water column per m2.
30,000 g per m2/24 hours.Other materials
