Your perfect insulation
My microclimate - just right
"...your perfect thermo insulation in low temperatures."
ThermoBear is a highly functional fleece fabric. It has different structures and different weights. They provide versatility and warmth. It is machine washable, dries quickly and is a perfect alternative to wool and down (of particular importance to those who are allergic or sensitive to wool and/or down). Compared to wool and down it is lighter, dries faster, is biological neutral and regulates your microclimate below the shell jacket more efficient. It is your perfect thermo insulation in low temperatures.
Stay warm and dry
"...the ThermoBear is hydrophobic- water repellent."
Its structure allows the perspiration to penetrate through fabric to the outer surface fast, keeps you dry and warm. The yarn construction traps air and isolates warmth, the additional long lasting treatment makes the ThermoBear hydrophobic – water repellent.
Ergonomic- body fit
"...slightly water repellent and wind absorbing."
ThermoBear is an insulating synthetic fabric mixed with elastane which enables us to make the cuts ergonomic- body fit. Additional treatment made the outer surface slightly water repellent and wind absorbing. It is plain and smooth, whereby inner surface is brushed and soft. It's structure allows the perspiration to penetrate through fabric to the outer surface fast, keeps you dry and warm.
The ThermoBear keeps you warm
The fleece fabric is knitted and combed on the inside (1). On the outside (2) it has a smoother surface.
The quality of the yarn and technology used is decisive for the quality of the insulation. Bigger the air traps (3) and closer to the central layer of the fabric, more air can be accumulated. Trapped air is the best insulation. Higher the density of the fibers, less warm air get lost- better it is trapped. That all together enables the ThermoBear to be a perfectly performing insulation.
The ThermoBear keeps you dry
The structure of the inner and outer surface enables the so called blotting effect. Whereby a small water drop on the inside (1) spreads to a much bigger area on the outside (2). Besides the transfer of fluid the perfectly smooth and well structured fibers enable the body vapor (3) to escape as well. In order to maintain the microclimate the best, the highest level of breathability is important.
Movements create an airflow (3) beneath the shell fabric. This airflow is essential as it distributes the moisture equal and accelerates the breathability. The structure and proper density of the material enables air to circulate and provides high level of breathability (4). The air traps (1) accumulate warmth, the blotting effect (2) keeps you dry.
Good to know!
Body fit - it's ergonomic cut- allows greater mobility. The air traps keep your body warm. All the styles are stretchable and have to be worn tight to the underwear – BODY CONTROL in order to perform.
How does it work?
- Fine fibers
Provide smooth texture which is extremely soft and comfortable.
- Long fibers
Provide the potential to accumulate air – best insulation.
- Air traps
Accumulate and retains air and preserves our microclimate.
- Smell free
The yarn prevents the growth of bacteria and gives us a feeling of freshness all time.
The perspiration works in real time.
Provides perfect fitting in movement.
The cuts are shaped to your body's needs, the structure fits our body's performance.
- Moisture wicking properties
Keep the garment dry, hydrophobic – water repellent.
- Highly efficient moisture transfer
To the outer surface – keeps us dry.
The anti-pilling quality maintains the outlook and functionality for a very long time.
- Light weight and thermal
The Construction, knitting, brushing and the air traps create a high volume and low weight, keep us warm-perfect insulation.
- Stay dry
the moisture is immediately absorbed and released through the outer surface
- Blotting effect
the moisture spreads on the outer surface an evaporates faster
- Quick dry
keeps you warm and dry
MAYA MAYA is advising
All ThermoBear products are based on ergonomy, functionallity and softness. We recommend gentle use according to it's purpose. The main purpose of ThermoBear is insulation and moisture permeability. Direct contact of backpack straps or other technical equipment can permanently damage the structure and functionality.
