Breathable heat retention technology – Warmth without bulk

Humans lose about 60% of body heat through thermal radiation. In order to stay warm, thick insulations made out of down, synthetic or fleece are typically used in outerwear to reduce heat loss. For the active person or traveler, the goal is to find the same warmth without all the bulk.

HeiQ and Australian material innovator Xefco present HeiQ XReflex – an innovative radiant barrier technology that allows outerwear, midlayers, sleeping bags, etc. to maintain the required level of warmth while reducing bulk by as much as 50%. With an ultra-thin reflective surface, HeiQ XReflex reflects the body heat, increasing the thermal resistance and allowing maximum breathability, and reducing raw materials consumption.
