KLYMIT: HIGH TECH INSULATION

Maybe Perplexing In Theory...

But it works.

KONTROL THE ELEMENTS™

We got the buzz on KLYMIT, an Ogden, Utah based company with a genius premise: flexible, gas tight (sealed) chambers filled with argon gas pumped into said chambers (of a jacket, for example)---- instead of down or synthetic fill like Primaloft...

...that keep wearers insulated and warm--- because the inert gas stays dry. And adjusts to body heat needs...banishing the pain of de- or adding layers while on a hike, golfing, snowboarding etc...as we warm up or cool down...with a turn of the dial.

The gas filled canisters are sold separately.

WOW.

A line of products debuted at Outdoor Retailer ---and given the DNA---that of drysuits that protect deep super sea divers that are down there...Klymit was inspired by proven tech.

SOME USES:

An Inertia X-Frame ---a lightweight inflatable camping frame (think souped up air mattress)...with body mapping technology to deliver warmth where needed.

AND---

A NobleTek blessed Kinetic Amphibian Vest  that can be warn under a PFD (personal flotation device)...that keeps paddlers/kayakers toasty, even in water dunks.

Huh---we await a surfer version.
