What is insulation?

The purpose of insulation is to trap the heat from your body and to prevent it from escaping into the cold. It’s a principle of thermodynamics that heat will always move from a hotter region to a colder region to achieve equilibrium. In other words, the heat your body produces is always moving out into the air around you. Insulation acts as the barrier between your body and the outside air. It retains the heat and reflects it back to you.Our layering system is perfectly aligned to be versatile. You are always able to strip a layer off to cool yourself down or add a layer to increase warmth.

TECHNOLOGY

We are using a polyurethane (PU) coating that consists of a tri-component multi-layer formula for waterproof protection, moisture permeability and durability. It is applied in a thin, even layer across the back of the face fabric. Your sweat is transported across the hydrophilic PU by diffusion, moving from the warm, moist atmosphere next to your skin to the cooler, drier atmosphere outside. The front of the face fabric is treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish; this helps water droplets to form and repels them from the surface. Our Hard Shell Jacket is fully seam-sealed for increased protection and durability. Our layering system is perfectly aligned to be versatile. You are always able to strip a layer off to cool yourself down or add a layer to increase warmth.

BASE LAYER

BASE LAYER

BASE LAYER
– moisture wicking
– temperature regulating

wick sweat away from the skin and towards the outer fabrics helping you to regulate your body temperature
moisture conducts heat 25 times faster than air so if it can’t escape the surface of your skin you’ll become cold very quickly. Quality base layers made from Polyester. Cotton should be avoided at all costs as this material soaks up moisture and holds on to it which means that you quickly become damp clammy and ultimately cold

MID LAYER

MID LAYER

MID LAYER / VEGAN SYNTHETIC INSULATOR

– adds warmth
– transports moisture
– traps heat effectively
– works when wet & dries quickly
– easy to care for

the second layer is known as a mid layer is worn over your base layer and/ or under your outer layer
the main purpose of this layer is to keep you warm by trapping body heat while continuing to allow moisture to make its way to the outer layers. synthetic insulators are a versatile and practical option. weight down must be kept dry to be effective, it can be used best only for cold and dry days, but not our vegan synthetic down like insulation. strands of synthetic fibers create down like materials that traps heat effectively. it continues to work when wet, dries quickly and is genernally quite easy to care for.

TOP LAYER

SHELL LAYER

is the maindefensive barrier against wind, snow and rain. By preventing further moisture from getting into your clothing it allows base and mid layers to continue to wick moisture away from the skin. For a layering system to work well, your outermost layer need to be both, waterproof and breathable, stopping snow and rain from entering but allowing sweat vapor to escape. Our hard shell Jacket is 3-Layer with stretch bonded backer. Stiff outer face for durability in harsh conditions followed by a waterproof breathable membrane.
