DEVELOPED TO IMPROVE YOUR
To deliver the best-performing (and most sustainable), all-conditions outdoor and adventure garments, Tenson regularly draws upon decades of its propriety technologies and also integrates the latest technologies from “ingredient brands” (e.g., fabrics, appliques, coatings, etc.) from all over the world. We aim to keep you current here on just some of our most notable technologies.
Tenson Proprietary Technologies.
PROPRIETARY TENSON LAMINATE TO SUPPORT YOUR
NEVER-ENDING VOYAGE OF ALL-CONDITIONS ADVENTURES
Tenson’s MPC technology: developed to withstand wind and water since the early 1980’s keeping you dry and comfortable no matter what weather mother nature might throw at you.
The MPC laminate causes the rainwater to drain off the garment. At the same time, the condensation / moisture that comes from the body is transported into and through the garment. In other words, MPC allows the garment to “breathe” so it feels comfortable to wear even during demanding activity. Our MPC garments also are taped at seams to add additional wind- and waterproof protection.
Tenson MPC features three performance grades - MPC Extreme, MPC Plus and MPC:
OUR BASIC-RANGE GRADE, MPC™, ACHIEVES
AT LEAST 5.000mm WATERPROOFNESS
MPC™ combines effective waterproof properties with a good breathing performance, making Tenson garments featuring MPC™ suitable for everyday active lifestyles. The result: guaranteed waterproofness of at least 5.000mm.
AirPush™ by Tenson
LOOKING FOR A LIGHT, SMOOTH,
SUPER STRONG, QUICK-DRYING, ALL-CONDITIONS FABRIC?
LOOK NO FURTHER.
In 1984, Tenson launched - and continues developing and upgrading - its proprietary AirPush™, a microfibre technology focused on improving breathability. AirPush™ attributes are made possible by the high density of the fabric (+30% higher than conventional fabrics) which features microscopic fibers on the surface of the fabric that prevents the water from permeating garment exteriors, while the fine pores allow interior moisture to be quickly wicked away. The effect: a super lightweight and soft garment that provides maximum freedom of movement and cold-weather protection suitable for strenuous activities which require maximum comfort and breathability along with wind and water resistance.
A DOWN-LIKE SYNTHETIC
LOOSE FIBERFILL THAT PROVIDES VAPOR
MANAGEMENT, WHILE MAINTAINING

BIONIC FINISH® ECO.
Applied to many of Tenson’s all-conditions garments, BIONIC FINISH® ECOis an ecological water-repellent impregnation to help weatherproof our gear. It is based on a fluorine-free recipe that improves the water- and soil-repellency of our garments, while maintaining breathability attributes. It also helps Tenson garments to keep their colours, making our fabrics looking new, longer. Find out more: www.bionic-finish.com
