Fast track: focus on insect repellent and heated garments at OutDoor 2012
published in Issue 42, 3rd Quarter 2012
Outdoor clothing has to meet a wide and sometimes contradictory range of requirements. As a consequence, much use is made of layers of differing fabrics and membranes to provide separate functions -- such as moisture management, antimicrobial properties and ultraviolet (UV) protection -- within a single garment. Increasingly, however, topical fibres and/or coatings are being used to provide specific functions. At the 2012 edition of OutDoor, the leading show for the outdoor clothing and footwear industries, there was a marked increase in the number of garments offering two specific functions, namely protection against insects and heating. A number of companies are developing innovative products to meet these functions. Among the new developments featured in this report are: LifeNet mosquito nets from Bayer CropScience; No Fly Zone from Burlington; Insect Blocker from Columbia Sportswear; NosiLife from Craghoppers; Novonic Heat from W.Zimmerman; and Omni-Heat from Columbia Sportswear.
