How It Works
Thermo Boost Denim is made with THERMOLITE® INFRARED technology, which provides innovative performance benefits that today’s consumers’ desire. This denim is solar-activated by the sun, or artificial light sources, using a unique blend of near infrared (NIR) yarns with proprietary additives. The yarns absorb the NIR rays to raise the temperature of the garment, while the system’s integrated high-quality insulation traps air and minimizes heat loss in cold temperatures. As an added bonus, Thermo Boost Denim also features LYCRA® T400 fibre for extra comfort.
