Fiber pile jackets and vests
Fiber pile is the indispensable 2nd layer of your clothing system. Its particular structure makes fiber pile very similar in its function to the animal fur. Because it can enclose large volumes of air fiber pile has excellent insulation properties. The superimposed fiber bundles make fiber pile highly water-repellent and very long-lasting. Due to the choice of material and the type of fabric, fiber pile conveys moisture from the inside to the outside. Fiber pile is ideal with two-layered functional underwear worn under it. Fiber pile is significantly more breathable and less sensitive to dirt than fleece.
Fiber pile enjoys high popularity
Fiber pile jackets are so popular because they offer very high thermal insulation despite their low weight. Warm clothing does not have to be heavy, it is merely air that insulates against cold. The air is stored between the fibers while at the same time moisture and excessive heat are directed away from the body. Choose between different fiber pile jackets from Helly Hansen or Nordforest.
