REPREVE® is a post-consumer recycled polyester made from PET bottles. The bottles are cleaned, cut into small parts, and then processed into raw material to make new polyester. The REPREVE® in our products is mainly used as insulation in jackets.

BIONIC FINISH® ECO
To make materials water repellent, they requiere an impregnation process. Normally, this is done using a Durable Water Repellent Finish (DWRF), which often contains highly fluorinated chemicals (PFASs). These chemicals can be harmful.
Bionic Finish Eco, developed by the Rudolf Group, is a unique and patented water repellent impregnation that is entirely free of fluorinated substances. Due to its fluorine-free formula it is not dirt-repellent.
