Polar Seal has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a breathable, heated base layer zip top garment suitable for alpine conditions. Created by French, Hong Kong based company Fillony, Polar Seal allows users to remain active and enjoy high performance sports without compromising style and comfort. It fits close to the body for efficient transmission of heat.

“Most heated clothing is thick and bulky. We designed a super lightweight, flexible heating element which we embed directly into the fabric that can sustain stress and deformation and always return to its initial state. Our garment is perfect for alpine sports requiring a lot of movement,” said co-founder François Vandenheste.

Tested in the California peaks of Mammoth Valley and using technology similar to that of a fighter pilot jacket, the zip top fits close to the body to ensure efficient transmission of heat. It is made from a high quality composite mix of elastane and polyester - a breathable material that prevents sweat build up - making it ideal for the most high impact sports. Polar Seal’s zip top lets users enjoy up to eight hours of on demand heat in less than 10 seconds and is compatible with any 5Ah and 10Ah USB power bank.

By incorporating shock and waterproof LED-lit control button at the wrist, users can easily adjust between two heating zones found on the lower and upper back. The colour coded control buttons, which also control heat intensity, can be adjusted without taking gloves off and are easily accessible when wearing an outer layer.

“Although the Polar Seal looks very sleek and minimalist, it is jam packed with many tiny details that make all the difference,” said co-founder Sebastien Vandenheste. “The pockets, using a special zipper and pull system, are completely hidden when closed. We also decided to include optional thumb holes, ideal for very cold conditions when it is best to keep the sleeves fully extended and tucked into gloves.”

Polar Seal’s campaign is running from August 2 to mid September 2017, with an estimated delivery date of November 2017. (SV)
