Delivering warmth without bulk, for extreme conditions and everyday activities. THERMOLITE fabric contains proprietary INVISTA fibers and are categorized by performance level.
* Meet top performance requirements in activities where maximum warmth and protection are necessary, such as ice climbing.
* Provide lightweight warmth and movement for any cold-weather activity, such as skiing and hiking.
* Deliver comfort and warmth in all other winter environments, whether at home or on the job.
Thermolite provides warmth and comfort without weight, even when wet. It’s the lightweight fabric that provides heavy-duty performance… because it’s fabric made with Thermolite® hollow-core fibres that trap air for greater insulation. Plus, wearers stay drier because it dries 20% faster than other insulating fabrics,and 50% faster than cotton. Thermolite is the perfect layering fabric because it’s comfortable and lightweight, allowing more freedom of movement.
THERMOLITE INSPIRED BY MOTHER NATURE
When DuPont scientists originally created Thermolite®, nature was their role model. They discovered that polar bears have fur containing thousands of tiny air pockets for greater insulation. From this simple discovery, Thermolite and its and hollow-core fibres were born.
THERMOLITE BUILT-IN INSULATION
Hollow-core fibre technology provides the most warmth at the lightest weight. The larger surface area allows for faster evaporation by speeding moisture away from the skin to the surface of the fabric where it can evaporate more quickly.
Winning the battle against cold Thermolite has really proven its worth in the sporting environment. Without any kind of chemical treatment, the fabric guarantees optimum warmth coupled with moisture management during physical exertion.
Moisture is the enemy when it comes to sporting endeavors: moisture on the skin or on clothing not only makes the body shiver, but causes discomfort and may affect an athlete’s performance. The first layer of clothing clearly has to move this moisture away as quickly as possible. Thermolite fulfils this role while keeping the body warm and dry. What’s more, less energy is used to heat the body and can therefore be refocused on stamina and performance.
