Awarded Kit of the Year 2013 by Ride Magazine in its testing of 16 internationally recognised brands of technical clothing. Described as “really well finished, extremely comfortable and very warm without ever getting sweaty, and Made in Britain – A really good mid layer”.
The New Core collection of windproof thermal clothing features Softshell fabric.
The fabric has active stretch, windproof and breathable performance combined with great water resistance. This type of thermal clothing replaces ineffective and bulky layers.
Cold Killers Softshell is a three layer laminate with a very tough and tightly woven stretch fabric on the outside and cosy 3D fleece liner. In between is a hydrophilic membrane to enhance the weather protection.
The three elements work together to deliver an incredible balance of protection against the wind and rain, excellent breathability, balanced warmth and dynamic and soft stretch fit. The technical combination of Softshell and 3D fleece allows warm air to circulate easily, thereby dramatically reducing the overheat/chill-down cycle associated with conventional layering.
Due to its technical construction and focus on fit and comfort, it’s perfect for any outdoor activity including motorcycling, cycling, MTB, snowsports and walking.
It's no fun being cold when out in the elements but many people will be surprised to learn that it could be potentially dangerous, due to the effects of hypothermia. Hypothermia is a condition in which the body's core temperature of 37°C drops below 35°. Wind chill accelerates the onset of hypothermia. When taking part in active sports at just 30 km/h, (that's less than 20mph), the wind-chill effect can reduce the external temperature by over 10°C, so it's easy to understand how vulnerable people can be to this condition.
Wearing Cold Killers windproof thermal clothing as a mid layer will dramatically reduce the chilling effects of wind and rain.
Designed and Made in Britain using Performance Fabrics and High Quality Construction makes this years Core Collection from Cold Killers our best yet.
Hydrophilic membranes have a solid structure that physically stops water passing through the membrane. They breathe by absorbing and dissipating sweat through the diffusion of water vapour molecules. The chemical structure of the membrane is made up of hydropholic (water loving) groups that attract water vapoumolecules. Driven by the greater heat and density, the water vapour molecules move from one hydrophilic group to the next (somewhat like stepping stones).
