Micro-loft® - Micro-loft® insulation, made by Invista, is made from a patented blend of microfibers to provide down-like softness, and exceptional warmth without bulk. It is superior at blocking radiant heat loss and resisting moisture, and provides lightweight comfort and compactability. Micro-loft® is machine washable/dryable, and is odorless and nonallergenic. End uses include outerwear, sleeping bags, gloves and accessories.
  Microtherm® - Microtherm® is a polyester microfiber, made by Invista, used as liners for high performance jackets and other outerwear, caps, gloves, sleeping bags, pillows and ground sheets and footwear. Tests indicate that Microtherm has superior wicking, thermal and comfort properties compared to conventional linings.
  Moisture-Tech 360 - Moisture-tech® 360°, developed by Sympatex Technologies, is an innovative insole which combines with Moisture-tech® laminate to create an even better micro-climate in the shoe. In addition to the faster wicking in the shaft section by the Moisture-tech® lining laminate, the insole creates a 360° effect. The insole draws the moisture away from the foot or sock and buffers it briefly in an innovative intermediate layer. The rolling movement of the foot generates a ventilation and pumping effect in the ducts structure of the insole which transports moisture in the form of water vapour evenly to the shaft fitted with Moisture-tech® lining laminate. This allows the moisture to be wicked outwards on a large scale, compared to a standard insole where the moisture is not wicked away from the foot which causes a moisture block in the sock.
  Moisture-Tech By Sympatex® - Developed by Sympatex Technologies, this innovation provides for the perfect microclimate in footwear. The technology provides for an innovative waterproof lining laminate that improves the moisture removal from the foot, a large surface area transfer of moisture to the hydrophilic membrane through an innovative intermediate layer, and full area activation of the membrane. All of these qualities ensure perfect dynamic breathability, faster wicking, and a dry foot climate. The innovative Moisture-Tech® laminate assures that perspiration is removed faster. The perfect moisture management keeps feet dry at all times with perfect breathability and comfort.
