OUTERWEAR MICRO CLIMATE IMPROVES WITH RAMTECT COMPRESSED INSULATION
During physical activity, moisture levels in the outerwear microclimate rise and fall, often quite rapidly.
This is based on the wide variety of outdoor activity recreation you enjoy each and every day outdoors.
The greater the buffering effect, the less you…the wearer are conscious of change and ergo your comfort level is improved.
BECAUSE wool has a greater capacity than any other fiber to store moisture vapour… 35% to 1-5% for polyester the buffering effect is much greater
RAMTECT insulation made from merino wool is unique among apparel fibers in its ability to exert control over the humidity of the air around it.
Easily absorbing water vapour, RAMTECT moisture buffering counteracts the build up of clammy humid conditions
BECAUSE wool has a highly complex structure it has many more binding sites than simpler synthetic (polyester) polymers and is thus the most hygroscopic of all insulations fibers
