Armada Technical Terms Explained

  • AR Insert: is a breathable fabric that consists of a three-layer microporous coating structure. The first layer incorporates pores less than 0.5 in diameter, preventing water penatration and peeling of the coating. The second layer consists of a honeycomb-like structure. This porous layer achieves moisture permeability and resistance to water penetration. The third layer has a very thin, dense structure that increases water resistance. Combined, these three complex layers provide optimal comfort.

  • Gore-Tex Pro 3-Layer: Engineered for extended and extreme conditions. Gore-Tex Pro 3-layer construction comprises a special high performance Gore-Tex membrane bonded to a tough outer material and Gore's patent pending Micro Grid backing. The benefit is no movement between the three layers, which means even greater durability, and an incredibly strong yet lightweight garment.

The two-part system consists of a detector used by organized rescue groups and reflectors that are integrated into apparel, helmets, protection gear or boots. Together they enable directional pinpointing of a victim's precise location using harmonic radar but are not a substitute for a transceiver. Complementary in function, the system is an additional tool that does not interfere with avalanche dogs, transceiver searches or probe lines.
