The Bomberinho is a new style to Welter Shelter. Executed in a nice waterproof techwool. The wool is backed with a membrane to avoid water from coming in. The outer wool 'shell' is treated and impregnated with a DWR coating to avoid water from penetrating. Seams are fully taped. Lined with a soft viscose fabric. Keep in mind this garment has waterproof capabilities but since it is a natural product water will eventually attach to the wool. however it will not penetrate. To avoid attachment regularly re-spraying the coat would be essential.
The insulation we use is the patented technique by MEIDA.
MEIDA is used by the Danish military because they need the lightest, thinnest and warmest material around. Here are some features why we think it is one of the best insulation materials out there.
- very thin insulation made of highly densely woven polypropylene fibers
- environmentally friendly
- does not absorb any water ( water = cold)
- 50 grms/m2 insulates better then 2 woolen sweaters ( we use 150 grms )
Model is wearing size L this style fits rather small so sizing up is advisable.
