TERREX™ (TX) - TERREX SWIFT(TS)-Hiking/Trekking (HT) Collections-Apparel and Footwearwords/images Judith Ecochard
Adidas-is one mammoth of a brand---we could probably spend a month reviewing just what was sold under their corporate moniker...
|fleece lined-moisture wicking|
And a brand that does not compromise on performance or style-as in, we doubt, for example---that the home kit of the USA soccer team-this year-would resemble the Lollipop kids from the Wizard of Oz...if they were conjured up by this label.
But we digress.
At the latest SIA tradeshow-we got a preview of one of the label's focuses...outdoor activewear aimed at hikers/trekkers/snow-sports individuals...who need protection against the elements, with moisture wicking/breathability/heat retention properties.
|men's hiking/trekking-HT $200-warmth via Fillpower 700-90% goose down, 10% feather, lightweight 12.5oz, adjustable collar, 2 hand pockets/1 chest pocket-core tickles where it's needed-in light scarlet (plus available in black, craft emerald)|
|HT Down HO-$250-Fillpower 600-80% goose down, 20% feather filling, adjustable hood, 2 hand pockets/1 chest pocket/internal security pocket-70's style puffer-men's in black 26.5 oz|
It all starts with Adidas' "BodyMapping" technology-that measures-to the nth degree (or meter) the human form's gender differences/needs via different climate zones of the body...when athletic efforts are made under different weather conditions.
The results-are the inventive use of different materials and details to maintain optimum body core temps keeping in mind the best textile/design combos available on the market- for ventilation, thermal insulation, windproof/waterproof (or not)---needs by men and women- in all weather conditions.
Figuring out the attire solutions for "...why men sweat uphill and women chill..." SOLUTION-guys get more materials that vent moisture and heat-gals get more materials that vent moisture and retain the heat. Lightbulb moments in time,
