Our new range of endothermic performance gear is designed to regulate body temperate and maintain optimal performance in cold weather conditions. Our range offers down and wool garments with varying insulation and breathability, to suit different temperatures and activities.
Down jackets provide the best insulation per unit weight making them the perfect choice when the temperature drops. The higher the fill power rating, the more voluminous the fill, without increasing the weight of the garment. Our ETP range includes varying levels of down pieces ranging from 500 – 700 fill power, which allows the jackets to be worn as either an outer or insulating mid layer.
Wool fill garments offer less insulation than down as they trap less air between the fibres. The advantage they offer is their ability to perform in humid environments. THE WOOL CAN ABSORB UP TO 30% OF ITS WEIGHT IN WATER, BREATHES BETTER AND IS ANTI-BACTERIAL. BY ABSORBING AND RELEASING THE MOISTURE THE WOOL KEEPS THE BODY WARM WITHOUT FEELING WET AND PREVENTS UNWANTED ODOURS. THIS IS USEFUL WHEN PERFORMING IN A WARMER ENVIRONMENT OR TO A HIGHER LEVEL OF EXERTION WHERE SWEAT MAY BE PRESENT.
