Same warmth with half the bulk, HeiQ launches its first visible textile technology HeiQ XReflex

Humans lose about 60% of body heat through thermal radiation. In order to stay warm, insulations made out of down, synthetic or fleece are typically used in outerwear. The thicker the insulation, the less heat loss and the warmer the person. For the active person or traveler, the goal is to find the same warmth Read more about Same warmth with half the bulk, HeiQ launches its first visible textile technology HeiQ XReflex[…]
