Klymit, an innovator in outdoor technology, is proud to announce that its NobleTek insulation technology is a winner of the Popular Science 2009 “Best of What's New” award. Klymit NobleTek insulation is the only technology on the market that gives outdoor enthusiasts the power to “Kontrol the Elements” and adjust their level of warmth via flexible, gastight yet breathable chambers filled with gas instead of down or fabric. This cutting-edge technology provides insulation that is not only adjustable, but warmer, thinner and lighter-weight than other insulators. NobleTek insulation is available now in the Klymit Kinetic vest, and can be incorporated into nearly any outdoor product that uses traditional insulation, instantly making gear warmer, thinner, lighter and more versatile with adjustable insulation.

“This is an incredible honor,” says Nate Adler, CEO and founder of Klymit. “I always pick up the “Best of What's New” issue of Popular Science, and to have Klymit NobleTek Insulation earn its place among the best of the best new technologies is a dream come true.”
