Spain’s Ternua launches Protech line for Fall-Winter 2023-24 collection made with 100 per cent recycled materials. The R&D department has done an outstanding job by using innovative and environmentally friendly textiles and treatments. They show technicity and sustainability can go together 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. The company is 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. Next is 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, the company said in a press release.

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, will 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.
