 Thermore celebrates 40 years of innovation emphasizing its claim: Set Yourself Free! Founded in 1972 in Milan, Thermore soon became a worldwide leader in the research, production and marketing of thermal insulation for apparel in both sportswear and fashion. The global presence of the Thermore Group in Europe, Asia, and North America- together with production facilities in Thailand and offices in Hong Kong- make it possible for international clients to benefit from Thermore’s market leading experience at a convenient and cost effective price point.

With 40 years of expertise, Thermore has developed its philosophy of the “Set Yourself Free” campaign: total comfort and freedom of movement in combination with a body temperature comfort zone. Its unique scrim-less design and fiber migration treatment allow for greater resistance and durability - which equate to longer term warmth and performance.

To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Thermore will participate at the next summer edition of Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City, USA - Booth 36037 - from August 2-5, 2012.

Outdoor Retailer is the tradeshow venue of choice for the outdoor specialty industry. The show attracts thousands of buyers and senior level decision makers that are looking for outdoor specific products, services, brands, fresh ideas, apparel launches, and outdoor innovation.

Thermore will present the new Classic product line (formerly known as TMK), featuring 50% postconsumer recycled (PCR) polyester fibers, and the enhanced Rinnova product, with a content of 100% post-consumer recycled fibers- once again bringing Thermore to the forefront in the development of high-performance components which have a strong focus on sustainability.

The Rinnova product is the only thermal insulation which utilizes 100% recycled fibers derived from post-consumer plastic bottles and is GRS certified. This unique insulation is able to offer the high-tech performance and design friendly options that Thermore has set as a standard for its entire range of products over the past 40 years. Rinnova offers excellent warmth, a soft hand, easy care and it is available in various weights and thickness options to meet every need for the contemporary consumer. Rinnova is engineered for technical outdoor, sportswear and fashion wear.

Thermore’s Rinnova performs at a higher standard and its special formulation creates a product which is very resistant and durable to machine washing/drying and can also be dry cleaned if needed. Thanks to Thermore's strong focus on research of sustainable products, each jacket made with Rinnova allows for an average savings of 18.48 MJ of energy. This is enough energy to power a compact fluorescent light bulb (with an output equivalent to a 100W old style bulb) for over 200 hours!

In addition to this news, brands exhibiting at Outdoor Retailer such as Fera, Outdoor Research and Hotfingers will showcase the Thermore products in their collections. Thermore is used in Fera’s women’s Nikki insulated stretch pants. Designed for winter sports enthusiasts who want the highest level of warmth, comfort and mobility while maintaining a slim profile. Since the shell fabric allows for good mobility, they wanted to use an insulation that complements the fabric and gives the user the trademark Fera fit, a feeling of lightness, and a good range of stretch and recovery.
