The team from Bolger & O’Hearn will be at Summer Outdoor Retailer in Denver, Colorado, this week

technology can help brands provide stormproof performance apparel and gear for their consumers.
OmniBloq’s Stormproof/Breathable™ capabilities represent an entirely new DWR category for the
performance industry. Simply put, Stormproof/Breathable™ garments have been engineered to
deflect heavy, wind-driven rain, yet are lightweight and allow perspiration to evaporate. Applied at
the factory, this technology is now ZDHC-approved.
