SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Enhancing the performance capabilities of insulated outerwear design, Climashield today unveiled CONTUR – a breakthrough brand of insulation combining the durability of continuous filament with a soft, slim framework for ultimate flexibility. Attendees at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Show (Booth #38055) can get a hands-on experience of the unique four-way stretch, thin construction and plush feel of this industry-first insulation innovation.
For weathering the great outdoors, Climashield CONTUR delivers supreme warmth in a revolutionary thin package for pants, jackets, gloves and footwear that are both functional and stylish. With unsurpassed breathability, this insulation is quick to dry and features AquaBan™ technology, which enhances moisture transfer from the body and prevents a clammy feel amidst wet conditions. Climashield CONTUR is also 100 percent recyclable.
"Climashield's advanced technologies and manufacturing accomplishments have made us the preferred insulation provider for performance sleeping bags and we want to bring this expertise to our customers in outerwear design," said Matt Schrantz, Chief Operating Officer of HarVest Consumer Insulation, Inc., Climashield's parent company. "With CONTUR, our customers can achieve maximum levels of thermal efficiency without adding bulk or sacrificing comfort and style. The end result is outerwear that moves with the body and feels good next to the skin."
