Protech Fall/Winter 2023: Ternua’s Most Technical Line Is Now Made With 100-Percent Recycled Materials

MONDRAGÓN, Spain — November 7, 2022 — As part of its upcoming Fall/Winter 2023-2024 collection Ternua has just presented a “Protech” line, which is its most technical category and is made with 100-percent recycled materials. It’s a line where the R&D department has done an outstanding job by using highly innovative and environmentally friendly textiles and treatments. And they’ve shown that technicity and sustainability can go hand in hand for alpine activities and keep people protected while doing them. Another aspect of the line that’s been very well received is the colorfulness of the clothing.

Insofar as new products, they’re presenting the MAUNA KEA JKT and PT models that are designed with the Shelltec Active Flex textile, which provides a 20k/20k impermeability-transpirability relationship, protecting mountaineers in adverse climate conditions. The textile is extremely strong and a little elastic, which gives the garments maximum comfort. It continues the ISPO 2021 winning RAKAPOSHI JKT that was initially specially developed for Japanese mountaineers Ternua Kazuya Hiraide and Kenro Nakajima (2020 Piolet d’Or prize), where all the technical needs of climbers and mountaineers are taken into account.

It uses a textile with a very strong and multi-elastic Shoeller® Aerobrane (10k/90k) membrane, which makes it one of the most breathable jackets on the market. Other third layers, like AMPHU JKT (Primaloft Gold Luxe and Pertex Quantum insulation outside), the SHARPU 2.0 JKT (Primaloft Gold PURE and Pertex Quantum insulation outside), JUGAL JKT (Stormfleece Pro) are also in the line. And the ELBRUS PT pants, with a textile that comes from recycled fishing nets from the Redcycle project with Shellstretch Prowool technology, should be highlighted.

A lot of work was put into the line, where the ergonomic and functional factors used in the garments follow the guidelines set by the focus group done with prestigious mountaineers like Alberto Iñurrategi, Oriol Baró, Miriam Marco and Iker Madoz in the field tests done in winter in the Pyrenees.

All the garments have a specific model with different patterns for men and women. They have PFC waterproofing treatment and can be combined perfectly with clothing from other lines, like Adrenalite or Trekking
