FORLOH’s Tri-Layer System™
3-Layer systems are nothing new in the technical outdoor industry. Some companies started with wool baselayers, some started with puffy jackets and some even started with twill jackets - but none started with FORLOH’s Tri-Layer System, an integrated 3 piece layering system that is designed to work from the skin out, to regulate your body temperature, keep you dry and remain undetected by your prey.
Traditional ‘passive’ approaches to keeping warm involve layers of clothing to trap heat your body produces. Trizar ® technology is optimized to capture your body heat and regulate temperature, keeping you warmer longer.
The Trizar ® treated materials react to your body and never gets warmer than the heat you generate out in the field. Trizar ® actively increases the performance of this without the bulk and increase the temperature range by up to 44% for additional comfort.
Trizar™ contains Emisshield® technology, which was originally developed by NASA to be used as a heat-shielding material on the shell of space ships, reflecting and re-radiating the intense heat as the ship passed through the atmospheres.
FORLOH’s insulation layer is breathable, water resistant, tear resistant, and quick drying - then we added Crypsis Technologies™, scent control, silent zippers and soft nylon to reduce sound at close quarters.
The secret is FORLOH’s Perf-Weld™, a proprietary technology that perforates the sonic welds between the baffles allowing moisture vapor to escape (permeable) while not letting condensed moisture like rain back in – keeping your body dry, your temperature regulated, and eliminating the classic problem of excess heat and sweat being trapped making you cold and smell.
The final hurdle, how do you continue to wick moisture away from the body when traditional applications of DWR (the waterproofing treatment added to the jacket and pants) commonly blocks the structure of the fabric making the outer layer waterproof but ultimately reduces the breathability.
The answer is, don’t apply DWR in ways it has always been applied. FORLOH has exclusively partnered with Airadigm™ and using their microventing Pulse Plasma Technology™ which applies the DWR in a vacuum, drawing it through the fabric keeping the structure of the fabric intact. It’s just as wind and waterproof, but now, it's just as breathable as before it was treated. Not only that, it uses roughly about 1% of the traditional DWR volume making our protection layer soft, pliable and therefore much quieter than anything else on the market.
