How we build the best gear you’ve ever owned
Designing the best snowmobile jackets on the market requires an approach that is rooted in science and enhanced by craftsmanship. We begin by sourcing the best technical fabrics available, and construct each piece of the jacket to meet performance standards independently before bringing it all together. Our process ends in the lab, where we test it for waterproofness. Then we double the testing standards. The result is a jacket guaranteed to keep you comfortable in any terrain, in any conditions.
Constructed for the toughest conditions on earth
A winter storm can produce some of the harshest conditions on the planet. Biting cold. Wind that cuts through you. That’s why all TOBE gear is made from materials that outlast and outperform your run-of-the-mill athletic gear—the same 100% windproof, abrasion-resistant and waterproof materials used in military-grade gear and bulletproof vests. Our suits can be repeatedly washed and have no “pores” to clog, and yet they are optimally breathable. Sympatex is also kinder to the environment due to its recyclable qualities.
How waterproofness is measured
A waterproofness rating tell us how much water pressure a material can manage before leaking. For example, a 10,000mm rating means that 10,000mm of water can be suspended over a 1”x1” square of fabric before it starts to leak. Higher numbers mean better ratings, and in an industry that takes these rating very seriously, TOBE’s ratings are as serious as it gets.
Waterproof to 45,000mm
Nothing ruins a day faster than having wet gear on a storm day, or feeling water seep through from a wet chairlift. Sympatex has a 45,000mm waterproof rating—a number you’re not likely to see printed on other technical fabrics. And it doesn’t just keep you dry—it can be stretched up to 300% in any direction and is extremely breathable.
