Thermore unveils new apparel insulation 'EVOdown'

May '14
Over the years, Thermore, the thermal insulation experts, has continued to dedicate a large share of its investments towards the research and development of new technologies in apparel insulation. Thermore brings new products to the market every year, making it now the widest offer in the industry.
 
This year Thermore is going even further down the line with the release of the revolutionary EVOdown, a completely different concept that, unlike anything else available in the market, TRULY delivers a compelling and effective down effect.
 
Technically, EVOdown can best be described as a "rolled free-fiber composite", two external higher density layers encapsulate the free fibers in the middle. The result of this revolutionary composite is to dramatically reduce clumping and fiber migration, ensuring a very consistent, high thermal performance throughout the entire garment.
 
Over the course of the recent years, the escalating cost of duck and goose down, issues of animal welfare and lack of quality control have forced the apparel industry to find alternatives. Commonly, blown-in fibers and fiber balls initially deliver a similar softness and high-loft down like appearance; these fibers are blown inside the garment in a very similar manner to how down feathers are applied.
 
However, this often comes with stability limitations, fiber clumping issues, heavy fiber migration and the development of cold spots, often after a relatively short care time.
 
EVOdown is inspired by the soft hand and lofty nature of natural blown-in down or fiber ball production techniques, but it matches this without compromising durability.
 
Thermore EVOdown maintains its structure over time and can be machine washed and dried with confidence.
 
EVOdown offers virtually the same volume and softness as the best natural down, and since it is supplied in a traditional roll form, it can be used in the most cost competitive manner. And like every other product in the Thermore range, these savings along with consistency of availability and the security of being hypoallergenic come as part of the guaranteed service that Thermore offers all customers today.
 
EVOdown is offered in three weights to best suit every design requirement from ultra-light jackets to high-puff parkas. Best finish and performance results recommend EVOdown be quilted with test approved down-proof, ultra-light fabrics (<30 gr.) in a pattern of 5cm or smaller for the 80g and 115g weights, and 10cm or smaller for the 170g weight.
 
EVOdown is the most advanced product to date from Thermore. A unique stand-alone product in the company's roster of insulation design, and one that's been created especially for customers who don't want to compromise wear, feel and performance characteristics while looking for a credible substitute to traditional down.
