The Technology of Comfort
Making you unrecognizable to your prey is not the only way GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment will improve your hunting performance.
Behind GORE™ OPTIFADE™ Concealment technology is the Technology of Comfort. This is based on four guiding principles:
- Comfort factors – No two bodies are alike. Individuals with greater muscle mass find it easier to stay warm than those with less bulk, which explains why women tend to get colder more quickly than men. Even your physical condition, activity level, and personal perception can affect your level of comfort.
- Your microclimate – You can't see it, but a very thin layer of protective air surrounds you wherever you go. Say hello to your very own microclimate. We are most comfortable with a microclimate of around 90°F (32°C) and relative humidity of 40% – 60%. Even the slightest change to these levels will result in discomfort.
- Climate control – You can't control the weather, but you can control the climate closest to your body. How? By dressing for your activity and surroundings. In rough weather, your clothes are more than just a fashion statement. They're functional equipment that must manage moisture, control heat transfer and protect you against the elements
- Clothing systems – Sticking it out in poor conditions isn't about being tough. It's about wearing the right equipment for the weather and the activity. Dressing in layers is another important way of achieving optimal heat balance. How? By trapping a protective mass of stagnant air around you. Plus, wearing layers makes it easy to adjust your clothing if the weather or your level of activity suddenly changes.
