Flylow Gear and Bolger & O’Hearn to collaborate on development of next-gen Stormproof/Breathable™ Performance Apparel (7/26/18)
Bolger & O’Hearn Specialty Chemicals and Flylow Gear have joined forces to collaborate on the
development of next-generation performance wear using Stormproof/Breathable™ OmniBloq™ DWR.
The announcement was made this week from Summer Outdoor Retailer in Denver, Colorado, USA.
Flylow Gear is an independently-owned performance brand based in Denver and is considered one
of the industry’s most trusted, reliable brands in outdoor apparel. Flylow Gear is well known for high
level ski outerwear, as well as apparel, accessories and outerwear for other performance categories.
OmniBloq™ represents a new, advanced level of durable water protection for the performance
industry. Simple fabrics, including cotton and polyester, treated with this high-powered DWR can
withstand heavy rain for extended periods of time without losing water repellent capabilities.
“We’re very excited about our collaboration with Flylow Gear and look forward to additional
announcements in the future,” said Shawn Honeycutt, marketing director for Bolger & O’Hearn.
Bolger & O’Hearn is based in North America and develops next-generation chemistries for a wide
number of industry sectors, including sportswear and sports gear. The team from Bolger & O’Hearn
attended Summer Outdoor Retailer in Denver, Colorado, this week - July 23-25, 2018 - to discuss
how their new Stormproof/Breathable™ OmniBloq™ DWR 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 also bluesign® and ZDHC-approved.
