NASA-Grade Outerwear That’s Warm Enough for Space or a Ski Trip
Performance apparel brings space age technology to winter gear
Performance apparel company Oros developed a collection of thin, light and warm winter gear, using the same insulation that NASA uses for space suits, space shuttles and the Mars Rover.
The new jackets, gloves and beanies use SolarCore aerogel, bringing space age technology to outerwear. Aerogel is a lightweight material that is 90% air, and is the lowest thermal conductor on the planet.
Insulating Oros apparel with this material allows for very lightweight and thin (3mm) jackets for performing outdoors under any conditions, without experiencing a restriction of movements. The outer fabric is waterproof and windproof, with a removable hood. Its design and breathability ensure that the wearer stays comfortable even if the weather warms up.
