Vivo Performance: Eco Insulation
Vivo Performance: Eco Insulation is a European made polyester insulation, which is developed to maintain good breathability while keeping you warm. It comprises a patented perforation with very small holes within the insulation, increasing breathability by 30 % and allowing moisture to escape, thus providing more comfort for the wearer. The holes are of a unique size: Visible enough to notice a difference but too small to allow air to circulate; they maintain the full insulation properties of the material. The small holes also provide a 4-way stretch within the insulation with a fast recovery which allows it to be combined with performance fabrics.
Vivo Performance: Eco Insulation is made in Europe from 93 % recycled fibers. The fibers are extruded from used plastic bottles and then recreated into insulation.
Polyester normally uses fossil resources for its production. By re-using existing material streams we can save fossil resources and reduce the energy demand as well as climate emissions.
The reason why mainly PET bottles are used is due to their availability and their purity in terms of material type. No other waste stream offers that big volume of basically the same identical raw material without any impurities from other material inputs. Furthermore, we can also reduce plastic waste as these material streams are being utilized again.
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.
