Klymit, an innovator in outdoor technology, introduces the Klymit Kinetic Vest – the first product to use its breakthrough Klymit NobleTek insulation. Klymit NobleTek is the only technology on the market that gives outdoor enthusiasts the power to Kontrol the ElementsTM and adjust their level of warmth via flexible, gastight yet breathable chambers filled with gas instead of down or fiber. This cutting-edge technology provides insulation that is not only adjustable, but warmer, thinner and lighter-weight than other insulators. The vest comes in four different styles designed with features specific to most outdoor activities. It is available for preorder now through the company’s e-commerce store at www.klymit.com

After two and a half years of research and hard work, it’s so rewarding to see the finished product,” says Nate Alder, CEO of Klymit.

“With the Kinetic vests, people can finally see for themselves how well NobleTek insulation works. NobleTek is going to change the outdoor industry.”

Klymit is a company based in Ogden, Utah that develops and licenses noble-gas-based, variable insulation technologies to companies across a variety of industries. Klymit NobleTek Insulation is the only technology on the market that gives users the power to Kontrol the Elements and adjust their level of warmth with the turn of a dial. The noble gases used in Klymit’s technologies are non-toxic, non-flammable, and safe for the environment.

  • I’m excited about the Klymit Kinetic vest! I had a chance to try it out in a -30 degree freezer, and guess what? It works! Went in the freezer with it deflated, and stayed that way for a few minutes to acclimate to the temps. Once I was in a full-on shiver, I inflated the vest and my torso warmed up really quickly.
    It’s great to see some real innovation in the area of clothing insulation!
