* Warmth of the material
* Comparative study completed in the laboratory with walking conditions and mild wind (3.1 mph). These products are tested as part of an outfit with boots, socks, pants, a first layer, a second layer and a third layer for hiking in cold weather and across snow-covered terrain. Every individual feels the cold differently.
Active cut: Fitted cut and spandex-based materials provide an extra comfortable fit.
Fleece component: insulated thanks to air
The fleece component is designed to trap the air thanks to the volume created by its texture;. this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
Thermal comfort and windproof
The wind considerably increases the sensation of the cold. When the outside temperature is 32°F and the wind blows at 12.4 mph, the perceived temperature will be 14°F. The "windproof" components help to eliminate the discomfort linked to this "freezing effect". Creating a barrier from the wind, they effectively reduce the loss of heat.
To find out whether a fabric is breathable, we test its evaporative resistance or RET (based on the ISO 11092 standard). The lower the fabric's resistance, the more water vapor generated by physical activity evaporates, and the higher the fabric's breathability. For example: RET < 9 = extremely breathable fabric / 9
We carry out 2 types of thermal tests: a fleece material test and a thermal mannequin test within a heat chamber. We recreate the temperature, wind (3 mph) and humidity conditions that you encounter in the mountains when walking at 3 mph. These tests are used to validate our design choices. We adapt the thermal insulation to the areas most exposed to the cold.
