3 Disruptive innovation in waterproof footwear and gloves
outdry Disruptive innovation in waterproof footwear and gloves OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

4 1983 over 25 years ago, Bootie systEM has been introduced as waterproof lining system. Since then, no substantial improvements. The bootie is a sock-shaped lining, made of membrane, seam-sealed by tape The bootie is separated from the upper leaving a gap in between. OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

IN FOOTWEAR AND GLOVES, WATERPROOFING TECHNOLOGY HAS NOT EVOLVED AS IN CLOTHING Technology evolution 25 years ago Today Jacket Pants Footwear Gloves Z-Liner (inter-lining) evolution 2 and 3-Layer fabrics none Bootie Lining evolution Insert none evolution OutDry Technologies property - Confidential 5

6 … About shoes with bootie system
CONSUMERS COMPLAIN… … About shoes with bootie system “In rainy weather my shoes gets damp, heavy and takes so long time to dry!”. Cause: water gets easily in the space between the upper and the bootie. “It’s dry outside but my feet are hot and humid!” Cause: the membrane is tightly in contact with the foot and there is no air ventilation around it.

10 OutDry: the membrane is part of the upper
CONSTRUCTION MAKES THE DIFFERENCE Bootie: the membrane is part of the lining and separated from the upper OutDry: the membrane is part of the upper OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

OUTDRY MEMBRANE 100X ENLARGEMENT OF A MEMBRANE LAMINATED UPPER SECTION OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

12 High performance MEMBRANE
Multi-layer structure: protective PES knit + PU membrane (30µm thickness)+ hot-melt adhesive mesh High elasticity (>200% ) and high tensile strength Waterproofness > mm H20 (ISO EN 20811) Water Vapor Permeability > 7 mg/(cm².h) (SATRA TM 47) > g/m².24hrs (JIS L 1099 B-1) > 2.0 mg/(cm².h) (EN 20344:2005 – 6.6) OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

OutDry membrane-set OutDry membrane-sets are pre-cut according to upper design and welded along the front and heel connecting lines (no seams, no tape) OutDry membrane sets are made ready for use in the OutDry 3D Lamination Machine OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

14 Outdry 3d lamination machine
Derivated from the Aerospace industry (diaphragm forming) Upper and membrane are sandwiched between 2 silicon diaphragms capable of Kg pressure each Two formers are operated in alternate way for high productivity (1 pair/minute) PLC controlled to ensure high quality output OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

15 OUTDRY PROCESS STEPS - UPPER
The ‘former’ is designed according to upper shape and can fit several sizes and styles by a pneumatic extension device The upper is turned inside-out and positioned on the former The membrane-set is placed on the upperm, the hot-melt mesh layer towards the upper inner surface => => OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

16 OutDry process STEPS - LAMINATION
The upper is launched inside the lamination chamber where membrane is pressed and heated against the upper for about 15 seconds The glue mesh melts achieving a complete adhesion of the membrane to the upper inner face. Lamination is completed, upper and membrane are now a unique body OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

OUTDRY PERFORMANCE STANDARD PERFORMANCE, COMFORT AND DURABILITY ARE GUARANTEED TO THE FINAL CONSUMER BY SEVERE TEST STANDARD Requirements for all categories: ► Flex Test (SATRA TM 77) cycles with no penetration and weight increase < 10% ► Centrifuge Test (OS – 05 ; SATRA TM under validation) 10 min without any penetration and weight increase < 10% ► Whole Shoe WVP (SATRA TM47) evaporated loss > 7 mg/(cm².h) OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

20 LABORATORY TESTS PROOFS
Centrifuge and Cold rating comparisons of 2 sample boots at SATRA – 03/2012: Sample A: Bootie construction vs Sample B:OutDry construction OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

21 LABORATORY TESTS PROOFS
Centrifuge and Cold rating comparisons of 2 sample boots at SATRA – 03/2012: Sample A: Bootie construction vs Sample B:OutDry construction STM 567 OutDry Technologies property - Confidential

22 LABORATORY TESTS PROOFS
Centrifuge and Cold rating comparisons of 2 sample boots at SATRA – 03/2012: Sample A: Bootie construction vs Sample B:OutDry construction SATRA conclusion: “The increase in weight is due to the absorption of water into the upper of the sample, where Sample A absorbs a far greater amount than Sample B. As a result of this, the wet boot R-values and cold rating values recorded for Sample A are very poor compared to the dry values seen, indicating that this sample becomes thermally compromised with the introduction of water. The foot would feel more comfortable in Sample B rather than Sample A when wet”. OutDry Technologies property - Confidential
