Yes­ter­day, we explained Klymit’s NobleTek Insu­la­tion and how it uses noble gas­es instead of down or oth­er syn­thet­ic fibers. Today, we want to share their 9 Core Ben­e­fits of NobleTek Insulation.

- Vari­able Insu­la­tion: Warmth on Demand.

- Warm When Wet: Main­tains ther­mal prop­er­ties when wet and even submerged.

- Dynam­ic Chan­nel Design: Ven­ti­la­tion is enhanced while deflat­ed yet when inflat­ed NobleTek™ cham­bers com­form to your body snug­ly, cap­tur­ing your body heat.

- Wind­proof: Pres­sur­ized cham­bers of argon nev­er col­lapse when inflat­ed and are unmoved by wind.

- Thin­ner: Argon insu­lates up to 3 times bet­ter than “Dead Air”, which oth­er insu­la­tion traps. Warmer and thinner.

- Lighter: Argon is vir­tu­al­ly weight­less. Based on the vol­ume of gas in the vest you can change your insu­la­tion from that of a wind­break­er to a full-on ski par­ka with no change in weight.

- Loft Retain­ing: NobleTek™ will nev­er lose its loft like tra­di­tion­al insu­la­tion will. Just pump and go.

- Safe: Breathe easy, argon is non-tox­ic and non-flam­ma­ble, you have been breath­ing it since the day you were born.

- Eco-Friend­ly: NobleTek™ is the only insu­la­tion you will nev­er see in a landfill.

The Kymit event begins at 9am PST this Wednesday.

We’re always look­ing to part­ner with brands that change the game, add a lit­tle some­thing dif­fer­ent to the out­door land­scape, and lead the way in innovation.

Klymit (and we’re not just lov­ing them for their unique way of spelling it) has giv­en users the abil­i­ty to Kon­trol the Ele­ments with their NobleTek Insu­la­tion tech­nol­o­gy and it’s as sim­ple as turn­ing a dial.

Stop­ping to add or remove lay­ers can be a pain, and as your lev­el of activ­i­ty and the cli­mate around you changes, you can find your­self doing that numer­ous times. NobleTek Insu­la­tion uses noble gasses, like argon, instead of down or oth­er syn­thet­ic fab­rics. Argon is bet­ter at cap­tur­ing heat and allows for thin­ner and more light­weight insu­la­tion. This lends itself to the most light­weight and least bulky vests on the mar­ket. When they’re inflat­ed, they won’t hin­der your move­ment and when they’re deflat­ed, they’re easy to pack and store. The gasses used in the 100% recy­clable can­nis­ters are inert: non-tox­ic and non-flammable.

Check out the graph below for a bet­ter view of NobleTek Insu­la­tion, the world’s only noble gas-based insulation.

The key tech­nol­o­gy behind the Klymit NobleTek insu­la­tion is noble gas. The rea­son why noble gasses are such great insu­la­tors is becaus of their low ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty. On this graph you can see thick­ness on the bot­tom an heat loss on the left. The thick­er the insu­la­tion, the less heat is lost. The top line on the graph is an aver­age val­ue for the indus­try lead­ing nat­ur­al and syn­thet­ic fibers. The bot­tom three lines are val­ues for the gasses Klymit uses: Argon, Kryp­ton, and Xenon. The yel­low line shows that 4.5mm of argon has the same ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty as 14mm of fiber insu­la­tion, mak­ing argon more than 3 times more efficient.

Mon­day we’ll share some of “The 9 Core Ben­e­fits of NobleTek” on our blog and we’ll high­light some of the gear avail­able in our Klymit event on Face­book through­out the week. We hope you’ll help us wel­come Klymit to The Clymb this com­ing Wednesday.
