Now, the problem is that when fabrics stretch, you normally lose the waterproofness. Nevertheless, this was something we couldn’t sacrifice as being totally waterproof (not only water repellent but fully waterproof) was of paramount importance for us. A revolutionary membrane with the ability to stretch while keeping this property was engineered to empower the OMEGA pants.
We ran the Martindale abrasion and pilling test (this test basically “rubs” the fabrics over and over to see when it gets damaged). Normally the maximum amount of rubs you measure are 50.000 - but we are all about experimenting and going the extra mile, so we requested a 150.000 rubs test.
We live active lives and Bear Grill’s quote “Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.” makes more sense than ever. But... what if, we wouldn’t need to improvise that much, and our clothing would adapt to the situation rather than us having to change our gear every time we face a different scenario? Well, the OMEGA pants are engineered for this.
You can determine your OMEGA pants size by measuring an existing pair of pants that fit you well. Simply lay your pants on a flat surface, and measure the width of the waistband from the upper corner with a measuring tape from left to right (check the instructive animated image below for reference). If you are in-between sizes, go with the smaller for a tighter fit and with the larger for a looser fit.
If you are still in doubt send us an email to [email protected] and we will help you out.
Remember that the final size will be requested at the end of the campaign on the same survey we will ask for the delivery address.
We will be offering ADD-ONS once the campaign is finished on the Backerkit Survey (which is the survey where we also ask for your size and delivery address). We don't exactly know at this point what ADD-ONS will be available as they will depend on our stocks by the beginning of November.
Nevertheless, one add-on is sure. We have partnered with Fortius Arms, the company behind The Keybiner, one of the most successful tools ever launched on Kickstarter. The OMEGA pants carabiner loop has been engineered with The Keybiner on mind as the perfect tool to partner with. At this point, we can't confirm the final pricing (as it will depend on the volume) but we can assure it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Check it here:
At Graphene-X we create all-round performance apparel from the strongest material on earth to empower you to live a boundless life. We believe in quality, not in quantity. We believe that gear should last you a lifetime.
Shipping costs will be charged after the campaign is finished. The reason for this is that due to COVID there is massive volatility on the shipping prices and fixing them months in advance from our side would only translate in higher costs. Below you'll find the estimated costs for your reference based on the latest data. We will strive diligently to achieve the best balance of shipping speed and cost efficiency for our backers. We will remain 100% transparent regarding shipping costs and will pass on any potential savings to you.
