All our products marked with the PFAS-free logo use a water repellent treatment that is free of PFAS substances.
PFAS (Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) is a group of more than 10.000 substances also known as fluorocarbons. They build up in nature as they do not degrade. In greater concentrations, they are proven to pose a hazard to both human health and the environment.
PFAS has been common to use for the so-called “Durable Water Repellent” finish (DWR): It means that water bounces off the surface rather than being absorbed by the fabric and making it wet. Using PFAS has been an effective treatment to achieve a durable water repellency for waterproof fabrics, but also other applications like ski waxes or food packaging.
Since these chemicals have shown to be harmful for both people and the environment, Bergans is working to phase out all fabrics containing PFAS finish and replace with more environmentally friendly, PFAS-free treatments. All the membranes we use are already free for PFAS. You can read more on PFAS and how we work to eliminate these.
A significant part of the challenge of using alternatives to PFAS lies in the lower durability of these water repellent solutions. That means that using a waterproof garment with a PFAS-free finishing requires you to re-impregnate these more often than before, to achieve a good water-repellent functionality also over time and after many washes. Anyhow, please always consider where and when it’s necessary to reduce environmental impact.

A - Bryst: måles med armene hengende rett ned langs siden. Skal du kjøpe jakke/overdel er det dette målet som er viktigst.
B - Midje: måles på det smaleste punktet.
C - Hofte: måles på det bredeste punktet. Skal du kjøpe bukse/underdel er dette målet viktigst.
E - Armelengde: Mål fra skulder via albue til håndledd med armen lett bøjd.
Det er vanskelig å måle seg selv på en god måte, så det er lurt å få hjelp av noen andre. Tips: Har du ikke målebånd, kan du ta mål med en tråd eller tau, og så måle det med målestokk etterpå.
I tilfeller der skjemaet viser at ulike størrelser passer på forskjellige deler av kroppen, noe som er veldig vanlig, er du selv den beste til å vite hvilken prioritering du vil gjøre. Det er også viktig å ta høyde for om man foretrekker smal eller løs passform, om man er mellom to størrelser.
