Dynatec – from pioneers in the textile industry
Ravnø is made in Europe. We have chosen the finest technical textiles in the world, manufactured by Schöeller Elite Textiles in Switzerland. Schöeller is one of the founders of the Bluesign™ system, recognized as the leading standard for sustainable textile production. We do not use PFC or UV enhancers. We have selected YKK zippers, hook-and-loop fasteners, buttons, and threads from Sweden, and we manufacture at the Gore Gold Standard factory Tekosöm Sverige AB in Poland. Therefore, we can confidently offer a 10-year production guarantee on our garments.
Working with the best
Without good textiles, one cannot create good clothing. We wanted to collaborate with a European factory to create “locally sourced” products. We also aimed to find materials that were superior to what we had previously tested. We wanted the best of the best – and we found it at Schöeller Elite Textiles in Switzerland. The company has a history dating back to 1886 and is truly one of the major innovators and pioneers in the development of high-tech textiles. They have set the international standard for sustainable production.
Ravnø Dynatec – Extreme durability and high comfort.
Here are some keywords for Ravnø Dynatec: Durable, windproof, waterproof, self-cleaning, and climate-regulating. The fabric is highly comfortable to wear. Dynatec is developed by Schöeller and is simply an impressive material. All Ravnø Dynatec Pro Jackets and Ravnø Dynatec Cargo Pants use this technical fabric.
Dynatec was originally developed for motorcycle police and renowned motorcycle manufacturers and motorcycle clothing brands. The garments are designed to withstand heavy loads. Additionally, they must endure high winds and water exposure. Ravnø Dynatec features a three-layer membrane consisting of Dynatec, along with Schöeller Textiles innovations C-Change and Nanosphere.
Dynatec – extreme durability
The protective fabric Dynatec can withstand extreme wear and tear. The Ravnø Dynatec series is comfortable against the body and feels soft and pleasant, without the clamminess that some other technical membranes may cause. For example, you can wear Ravnø Dynatec Guide Pants directly against the skin without feeling sweaty. This means that you have a fully functional rain pant that feels as comfortable as a cotton pant. Dynatec is made of tightly woven and highly durable polyamide. Polyamide is a synthetic fiber derived from oil, which is transformed into long continuous threads through a process called melt spinning. The thread is exceptionally smooth, easy to shape, and highly resistant to wear.
C-Change – climate regulating, wind and waterproof.
C-Change assists the fabric in breathability by adapting to changes in temperature. The membrane transports moisture and heat, or retains heat, depending on the situation you are in. The membrane is windproof and waterproof. C-Change has been tested under extreme conditions in practical use.

Nanosphere – dry and clean
Nanosphere is a coating that makes the surface hydrophobic. The fabric becomes highly water-repellent. It resembles fish scales, where small nanoparticles protrude from the fabric. Water and dirt do not adhere but remain on top of the particles. This technology has been developed by Schoeller after observing how plants rid themselves of water and dirt.
