Humans are very adaptable but that doesn’t mean we can thrive in extreme environments. For the most part, we perform optimally when the temperatures are more moderate and unfortunately ,up to now, our most effective way to counter the discomforts of “mother nature” was to dress in layers or move our active lives indoors all together. The unfortunate part about adding layers in the cold is the restriction of movement. By contrast, when in the heat, you can only strip down so far before the decency laws kick in! Necessity, improved technology, and a better understanding of our anatomical thermo regulation has brought us a new method of temperature control apparel. We developed this system to take back the control of our comfort, so welcome to the revolution!
