What is Outlast® technology?
Outlast® technology is the original, proactive heat and moisture management technology, and is also the only phase change material that is a Certified Space Technology™. Outlast® fabrics, fibers and coatings are ingredients found in everyday products and high performance gear.
How does Outlast® technology work?
Outlast® technology is proactive, using phase change materials (PCM) to absorb excess heat from your skin when you are warm, and releasing that heat back to you when you need it most. For example, ice is also considered a phase change material and as the ice in your drink changes from solid to liquid, it absorbs heat and cools the drink. The phase change materials in Outlast® technology work in the same way.
Does Outlast® technology make me warmer or cooler?
Outlast® technology is proactive technology that adapts and changes based on your personal situation. When you get hot, Outlast® technology absorbs heat. When you get cold, that heat is released. Outlast® technology balances your temperature proactively by managing heat to reduce overheating and perspiration.
