The Outlast temperature control is able to keep the body temperature at high temperature fluctuations and different body activities not too warm, not too cold - but just right.
With the new material for transporting sweat outwards, Outlast also works in active sports use.
When the temperature rises in the microclimate, the PCMs change their state of aggregation, become liquid, absorb excess heat and store it. Not too warm, just right. PCM = paraffins filled microcapsules.
When the temperature drops, the PCMs change their state of aggregation, become crystalline and release the stored heat. The thermal equilibrium in the microclimate is balanced and the temperature difference compensated.
Included in delivery is only the pants. The matching longsleeve shirt must be ordered separately.
The pants are easy to put in, don’t stick to velcro fasteners and seem sturdy. They keep you warm in the winter and they wick moisture in the summer.
Not warm at all!!,(28.02.2019)
Build quality, is excellent, it feels like second skin, so smooth!!! Size is correct, my inseam is 81 cm and size L is spot on! However it is not warm enough, or should i say at ALL!! 10 degrees C and below, i get cold feet , same is not true for my 10 year old NORTH FACE!!! What a pity.
Just feel the quality !(15.07.2017)
You are sitting on your bum or up and down on the pegs most of the day, everday especially when on tour. The last thing you need is a badly cut/put together pants beside your skin. These are excellent and well worth the extra few bob for the comfort they give. Not used them during the winter yet so cant comment.
