Therma-Float™ VP – When only the Best Protection is Good Enough

Combining Buoyancy, Thermal Insulation & ‘Breathability’

For All Round Comfort & Protection both On & Off the Water

Therma-Float™ VP is an Ultra-thin Performance Interlining Material that combines exceptionally Buoyancy with enhanced Thermal Insulation. It Provides enhanced comfort to the wearer in extreme to critical conditions both on and off the water, offering excellent thermal insulation – about twice the warmth of most high-loft fiber fill insulation materials and up to three times the warm of down when equal thickness' are compared. Its extraordinary Buoyancy (just 6 M2 of Therma-Float™ VP in a garment provides 50N buoyancy), excellent warmth, combined with its super-soft handle and is of particular benefit where a thin compressible vapour-permeable insulation is important. It is breathable, moisture resistant and can be washed.
