Weatherproof Garment introduces 'klymit kontrolled' garments

Feb '09
As a 60-year pioneer in the outerwear business, Weatherproof Garment Company once again blows away the competition with the industry's first hot-air insulated jackets. Partnering with Klymit, a noble gas technology company based in Ogden, Utah, Weatherproof has the rights to sales and marketing of fashionable outerwear in the US market using this new state-of-the-art method.

The design and technology of this “klymit kontrolled” garment allows for ultimate mobility without the bulk of fabric and fibers to keep you warm; the insulation significantly reduces the bulkiness and excess weight of all their products. In addition, the coat will stay warm even when wet. The membranes keep the gas from contact with any outside elements.

The technology uses “noble gases,” which are much lighter than fabric and fibers to heat your body. A chamber-seam design combined with high-tech membranes provides room for argon gas to be spread throughout the jacket, providing as much or as little insulation/heat as desired, at the touch of a button. A hidden compartment stores the 38 gram argon gas canister; a pressure release valve, weighing just 68 grams, contains the button control of the gas.

“We are extremely excited at the premise of launching this innovative garment with futuristic qualities,” says Eliot Peyser, CEO of Weatherproof Garment Company. “With Klymit's brilliant concept, this is sure to be the wave of the future; by partnering with them we are on the forefront of this new technology.”

Weatherproof is a division of David Peyser Sportswear, a family owned and operated supplier of outerwear and sportswear since 1948. The divisions of Weatherproof Garment Company include MV Sport, which is the leading maker of custom decorated apparel for college bookstores, resorts, golf shops, military exchanges, and the advertising specialty industry; men's and women's sweaters; children's outerwear; and accessories such as gloves, hats, bags and travel accessories, stain-resistant shirts and ties, sportswear, rainwear, footwear, leather goods, gifts, loungewear and clothing.
