NanoProTM membrain

The most comfortable 2.5-layer lamination Marmot has ever created offering. Its unsurpassed breathablility and superb waterproofness make it our high performance choice for lightweight 2.5-layer garments. Up to 140% more breathable than our previous technology. Its dynamic air permeability moves moisture faster for start and stop activities. Its patented Dry Touch finish eliminates rubbery, clammy feeling on your skin. Compared to other 2.5 layer coatings in the market, Marmot's 2.5 layer lamination is about 100% more breathable. The back print pattern is carefully designed to achieve the maximum durability and breathability. Abrasion tests rate 4-5 times better than regular MemBrain® (which is why regular MemBrain, as well as all 2-layer laminates require a separate lining).
