OUR REVOLUTIONARY FABRIC

Dermizax®EV - The perfect membrane that redefines comfort and protection for high-performance fabrics.

Created with proprietary technology in Japan and designed to protect you in all weather conditions. 

WHY THIS FABRIC?

Dermizax®EV is a 100% waterproof, windproof and breathable membrane (fabric). Specifically developed to provide maximum protection against all kinds of demanding activities and weather conditions.

It's a durable and lightweight 3-layer fabric that can be washed like any other textiles. The perfect fabric for our collection of High-Performance jackets.

Besides waterproofness, we highly value the fabric's exceptional breathability.

See below how the Dermizax membrane compares to other high-performance fabrics.

FLEECE JACKETS

Keeps you warm - whenever, wherever.

Especially for the Kickstarter community, all backers receive a beautifully designed full-zip fleece jacket for free (€100 value).

The fleece is perfect for diverse outdoor activities and features with a Hi-Tech polyester fabric which is warm, durable and breathable. Perfect for layering in colder conditions or just as a standalone piece. Available for men and women.  

SHELL PANTS 

The perfect match for your jacket. Featured with the same Dermizax 3-layer membrane. Created for skiing, snowboarding and hiking in colder conditions. 

Build with the most premium materials on the market. 

THE CORTÈZ PANT VS. ARC'TERYX AND NORRONA

A picture is worth a thousand words. Let us show you why we believe the Cortèz pant can easily compete with the best in the industry.

MERINO WOOL BASE LAYER 

Especially for the Kickstarter community, all backers who order the 3-layer shell jacket and pants receive a nice and warm merino wool base layer set for free (€148 value).

TIMELINE

After our 1st Kickstarter campaign, we delivered 1000+ packages to backers living all over the world. We are 100% sure to do so again in 2018 and we will make sure each backer becomes a happy owner of their ordered Cortèz products.  

All production lines have already been reserved which guarantees us output on time, according to the timeline below. 

SIZE CHART

After we meet our funding goal on Kickstarter we'll contact you to help you select the right size and color.

Nevertheless, below you can find our size chart to already measure your chest, waist and hips. This will help you to choose that one size that fits you best.

 WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT CORTÈZ

ARE YOU READY TO JOIN US?

This is us, rocking the Cortèz jacket! We are passionate skiers and outdoor enthusiasts with an extensive background in clothing production, fashion and entrepreneurship.

As the founders of Sqetch.co Wiebe and Wouter have helped hundreds of fashion brands and clothing suppliers to grow their business.

Herman has been working in the field of clothing production for 40+ years and is the owner of Vert Company, a true pioneer in sustainable production.

We're on a mission to create lasting outdoor experiences and re-green our planet. That's why we partnered up with Justdiggit and started to cool down the planet. For every jacket sold we re-green 50m2 of land on the foot of the Kilimanjaro (Tanzania) to reduce global warming.

At Cortèz you don't buy to get, you buy to give. 

EXCELLENT VALUE: SELLING STRAIGHT FROM THE MANUFACTURER

By using a disruptive direct-to-consumer model, and cutting out the middlemen, we can offer our products for an exceptionally reduced price while maintaining the same high-quality standards as leading industry brands.

As a result, we can offer our high-performance 3-layer jacket + full-zip fleece jacket for less than €319 (Kickstarter price).

OUR DESIGN PROCESS

This is outerwear you are going to love, so we want to make sure it lasts.

Together with the most respected manufacturers in the industry we are ready for our second collection.

Highest quality products, outstanding design and build to last.

SPECIAL THANKS 

Our first early supporting backers from our previous campaign of last year :)

AND OF COURSE..

We would love to thank our family and friends for their support during the Cortèz journey so far, we couldn't have done it without you!

Let's hope together we can make this a huge success!

This campaign is promoted by Backercamp. Since 2012, Backercamp has helped over 5,000 creators make their projects a reality. 

Risks and challenges

Our team combined has nearly 40+ years of manufacturing experience in outerwear and high-performance products.

This is also our second Kickstarter project. Last year we delivered our products to over 1000 backers all over the world. Feedback has been incredible and we couldn't have arrived till here without the Kickstarter community.

All of our team are entrepreneurs in fashion and manufacturing and we are confident we can deliver all products on time meeting our high-quality standards.

We also partnered with the best manufacturers in the industry and have already booked all production lines way in advance. This allows us to secure production output according to our pre-set timeline.

Although certain things like custom delays are difficult to predict we made sure our schedule allows for delays and unforeseen circumstances.

In any case, we'll make sure to update you frequently on our progress and keep the process as transparent as possible!

Thanks for all the support! We are excited to take this next step in our journey with the Kickstarter community!
