Knox Cold Killers CORE Maxi Tube
Why Cold Killers? Because it eliminates the wind chill effect and reduces the risk of hypothermia. It's no fun being cold when out in the elements but many people will be surprised to learn that it could be potentially fatal, due to the effects of hypothermia. Hypothermia is a condition in which the body's core temperature of 37°C (98.6°F) drops below 35° (95°F).
Wind chill often accelerates the onset of hypothermia. When taking part in active sports at just 30 km/h, (that's less than 20mph), the wind-chill effect can reduce the external temperature by over 10°C, so it's easy to understand how vulnerable people can be to this condition. Wearing Cold Killers as a mid layer under suitable outer clothing will dramatically reduce the chilling effects of wind and rain.
The Cold Killers Softshell collection has a focus on style, fit, soft feel and overall comfort. The new collection features Softshell fabric providing active stretch, windproof and breathable performance combined with great water resistance. The Softshell fabric is a three ply laminate with a very tough and tightly woven stretch fabric on the outside with a cosy 3D fleece liner. In between is a laminated membrane, which assists weather protection.
These three elements work together to deliver an incredible balance of protection against wind and rain, excellent breathability, balanced warmth and soft stretch fit. The technical combination of Softshell fabric and 3D fleece allows warm air to circulate easily, thereby dramatically reducing the overheat/chill-down cycle associated with conventional layering.
