Technology


If apparel insulation is poor, this can result in feeling too hot, feeling too cold or sweating without the moisture escaping. As a result, it quickly becomes very uncomfortable. Wanting to challenge the experience of true outdoor comfort, we have conducted extensive research to develop the optimum breathable insulation to drive your comfort up to a new level.

The Vivo insulation innovation


Our patented Vivo insulation is comprised of a series of small apertures set within the insulation to enhance the breathability without decreasing the thermal performance. The holes are a unique format, which are visible enough to notice a difference but too small to allow air to circulate thus trapping the air to maintain the insulation properties. Extensive testing has proven that the Vivo concept increases the breathability of insulation by up to 30%. This brings about a massive uplift in comfort when in use between breathable fabrics for activewear.

Our patented TECHNOLOGIES

Vivo Outdoor insulation

15% increase in breathability

The Vivo Outdoor technology has a unique pattern of perforations big enough to allow for moisture vapour to escape yet small enough to retain warmth. This innovation gives an increase in breathability by 15%, for the perfect balance of warmth and breathability.

30% increase in breathability

The Vivo Performance technology is a unique series of perforations allowing the free flow of moisture to escape through the insulation and away from the body heat. This not only increases the breathability, but speeds the process up so the insulation is no longer the barrier to moisture escaping. The apertures give a major uplift of 30% in breathability while maintaining 100% of thermal properties, to allow the insulation to be combined with performance
fabrics of your choice.

Vivo Performance insulation
Vivo Extreme insulation

30% increase in breathability plus 4-way stretch

The Vivo Extreme technology has the same Vivo Performance unique perforations to gain the 30% breathability increase, but also has the added benefit of a 4 way stretch to achieve full freedom of movement. This is the ultimate choice for the most active apparel.
