PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Showers Pass (www.showerspass.com), the Portland, Ore.-based experts in inclement weather protection, today announces the debut of the company's Body-Mapped Baselayer – a new product created to complement the company's popular jackets by working in conjunction with their renowned venting system.
The Showers Pass design team dedicated months to refining the fiber content of its Body-Mapped Baselayer to achieve a mix that weaves the softness of Modal, the form-fitting and stretchable fit of Spandex, the strength and durability of Nylon with the warmth and odor resistance of Merino Wool. Each component of this custom blend material is proportioned to achieve optimal performance in aerobic outdoor activities.
The Showers Pass Body-Mapped Baselayer is designed to correspond with the ventilation system in the company's best-selling jacket line. The Baselayer features a body-mapped knit pattern designed to vent out excess heat in the areas where you tend to sweat the most – an important design point for the active users who are fans of the brand's outerwear. Multiple knit patterns are used to achieve the body-mapping without adding additional seams; the torso is seamless to minimize chafing.
"Baselayers are a natural extension of our product line, but it's a new category for us. So we wanted to make sure we got it right before bringing it to market." notes Kyle Ranson, president, Showers Pass. "We surpassed all of our design goals, and are excited to round out our line and offer our customers another well-conceived high performance garment."
The Showers Pass Body-Mapped Baselayer features a long torso, wide hem, and long sleeves with thumb loops, to accommodate high output outdoor activities such as cycling and running. They are available in a graphite color in two sizes for both Men (size S/M and L/XL) and Women (size S/M and L/XL), with an SRP of $69.
Showers Pass products are available at cycling and sports outerwear retailers nationwide and overseas. For more information on current Showers Pass products visit www.showerspass.com.
