Portsmouth, NH (January 15, 2016) - Dare 2b is thrilled to debut their new Winter Alpine collection for fall 2016. The Winter Alpine range contains advanced technical features to ensure you’re shielded from the elements in unpredictable mountain conditions. Every product contains innovative technologies to keep you safe, warm and dry, whatever the weather. Wherever you expedition takes you, Dare 2b will help you reach your peak.
This line features two of Dare 2b’s proprietary technologies: AEP Kinematics and Endothermic performance. AEP Kinematics technology gives perfected freedom of movement, analyzing points of motion during athletic performance. Endothermic Performance Technology provides extra protection from the bitter cold with wool fill insulation and wool look performance fabrics.
The Alpine Snow collection also utilizes Dare 2b’s proprietary alpaca wool mix insulation fabric, Ilus Wool, to further enhance the user’s temperature control. With its unique ability to absorb up to 1/3 of its weight in water without feeling wet, Ilus Wool technology is designed to help insulate the user without feeling damp and natural odor resistance, making it ideal as an active wear piece.
Also featured in the Winter Alpine Collection, is Ilus Microwarmth, Dare 2b’s proprietary insulation technology designed to trap air between synthetic fibers. The low water absorption of these fibers means even when wet they continue to insulate the user.
