22. LAYER 2 - THERMOWEAR LAYER 2 - THERMOWEAR

LAYER 2 CLOTHING HOLDS WARM DRY, INSULATING AIR INSIDE THE CLOTHING SYSTEM AND CLOSE TO THE BODY. IT, THEREFORE, PROVIDES INSULATION AND WARMTH WHILE TRANSPORTING MOISTURE AND EXCESS HEAT TO THE NEXT LAYER OR INTO THE SURROUNDING AIR.

Thermowear is the middle layer of clothing you wear. It is designed to be worn loose fit. The thicker or loftier the layer the greater its heat retaining ability. Ideal for rugged professional extreme outdoor use.

 

Fibre pile and fleece are vital thermal layer components in the three-layer-principle. Those fabrics work on the principle of air insulation. The functional fibres create a layer which traps air and collects body warmth. Moreover, fibre pile and fleece are rapid drying, low weight, soft and comfortable, very warm, robust, hydrophobic and simultaneously highly breathable.

 

Softshell is revolutionising the classic "onion layering" or multiple layer principle by combining the second and third layers - creating a garment that offers both temperature regulation and weather protection. Softshell garments are highly abrasion-resistant, elastic and wind-resistant, as well as offering enduring water and dirt repellent properties.
