Oros Apparel has introduced Orion Series, a new collection of outerwear, featuring SolarCore insulation that NASA used in its spacesuits and space shuttles. This insulation is mostly composed of air and is up to eight times more effective than traditional insulation. It makes outerwear thinner, lighter, warmer and more flexible than the existing options.

The Orion Series collection meant for men and women includes jackets, gloves, pants, and beanies. The new Oros jacket is devoid of bulky layers and is compression-proof and waterproof, unlike any outerwear insulated with down. It has strategically placed zips to let out the right amount of cool air to maintain the perfect temperature.

“The difference in all our outerwear is the SolarCore technology. There is no better insulator and because it is literally made of air, there is nothing lighter. It's up to eight times more effective than traditional insulation,” explained Michael Markesbery, CEO and co-founder, Oros Apparel.

The Orion Series gloves incorporate aerogel and have special technology which allows them to be self-heating without batteries, while beanies are insulated along the ear band with SolarCore insulation. Snow pants of this collection are flexible and feature heat-sealed waterproof zippers and pockets along with waterproof outer shell, adjustable elastic waist tabs, 6 large storage pockets, inner thigh vent and adjustable ankle to fit over ski boots.

“The new line of clothes gives you complete flexibility and comfort, a slim profile, and is great looking so they really are perfect for everything you want to do in the cold,” added Markesbery. (KD)
