Berg Outdoor, a valued customer of Porcher Sport, the sports and leisure division of Porcher Industries, has been selected as Gold Winner for its Geres zero gravity down jacket within outdoor category at the ISPO Awards 2019. Berg Outdoor’s zero gravity down jacket represents the latest trends for sustainable produce in the outdoor sector.

The top layer of the jacket uses Porcher Sport’s recycled ultra-light weight parachute fabric that has been treated with an in-house formulated polyurethane coating that is both water repellent and designed to resist the harshest of conditions. Grade B sections of the parachute material are recycled rather than scrapped and are specifically chosen for its extreme tear resistance, foldable, easily packable, light weight attributes, according to a press release by Porcher Industries.

This high-performance insulation jacket designed with a mountain to city look provides high performance protection for the real outdoor adventurer. Its lining, the Primaloft gold insulation down blend, a combination of down and ultra-fine PrimaLoft gold fibres results in a lightweight, breathable product that is capable of retaining its insulating properties even in damp or wet conditions.

“This award is great news and we congratulate our customer Berg Outdoor. The achievement illustrates our ability to innovate and deliver high performance, market leading light weight fabrics for the outdoor performance clothing market as well as for extreme sports, plus Porcher Sport’s ongoing commitment to do this using sustainable materials and practices wherever possible,” said Olivier Gros, head of Porcher Sport.
