Oros' Proprietary SolarCore Aerogel Allows for the Thinnest and Warmest Performance Apparel for Winter Sports Enthusiasts From Nepal Base Camps to the Ski Lodge Patio
From the team that created the runaway success of the Lukla Endeavor aerogel-insulated jacket a year ago comes a new and improved collection of high performance winter gear incorporating an even thinner and lighter version of its proprietary formulation of the spacesuit insulator. The new jacket, gloves, beanie and pants being launched by Oros (formerly Lukla) utilize SolarCore aerogel as insulation which allows the performance apparel to be incredibly warm, thin, lightweight and comfortable and brings space age technology to winter outerwear.
Aerogel, a space age material used by NASA, is an extremely lightweight material that is actually 90-percent air and is the lowest thermal conductor on the planet. This low conductive property is what makes it an ideal insulation for insulating space suits, the space shuttle tiles and the Mars Rover and industry uses it to blanket oil pipelines.
