INSULATION

Lightweight. Warm. Motion Specific.

The technology of insulationSince comfort is one, if not the most, key ingredient we strive to make sure that our insulated pieces can stand up to the rigors of a long day out on the hill. Since each person’s body is different with how much heat is produced and how the body either stores or gets rid of it, it is imperative that we account for as many scenarios as possible. Add to that the fact that all of us have different levels of aerobic activity we take the variable to an entirely different level of complexity.

At Obermeyer our main goal when creating outerwear that is meant for intensive aerobic activity is versatility, accounting for a wide variety of people and conditions. To do this, we incorporate body mapping in our insulation as well as intelligent venting which eliminates cold spots while at the same time allowing the body to regulate itself when the intensity of exertion rises.

Obermeyer is proud to offer the very best in a new generation of insulation products from brands that are the gold standard in the field. Each of the independent companies used for our insulation offers a unique product which we build into our apparel depending on the goal of the piece. The goal of effective insulation begins by trapping air and creating a layer of air space, the intent is to trap air while maintaining a lightweight, compressible and flexible fiber.

The technologies we incorporate into our insulated garments are: Thinsulate, which offers the very best stretch insulation; Primaloft offers the ideal active product for quick moisture management and high clo retention when wet; Thermore is an Italian company that manufactures premium insulation with superior drape and optimum synthetic down performance. Obermeyer uses the very best in insulation technologies available to keep you comfortable regardless of the conditions.
