Ultra-thin and ultra-light material for outstanding insulation. Directly from astronaut spacesuits.

Story

With extreme temperatures in mind, we brought you the thinnest, warmest, and most fitted winter jacket ever made. This jacket consists of silica aerogel, the highly resistant and lightweight material researched and developed by NASA to insulate spacesuits.

 

We’ll take you from the highest peak of Everest to the coldest land in the Nordics, and everywhere in between.

Review in the Cold

 

No more bulky layers to stay warm! As thin as just two millimeters of foil, the aerogel filling will maintain your core temperature in any weather condition, ensuring complete comfort and protection for your next chilly adventure.

 

 

Aerogel is a synthetic material that is made up of 95-99% air. Extremely porous and very low in density, it boasts an incredibly low thermal conductivity, for an extraordinary insulating capability that exceeds even the warmest outdoor apparel. Ultra-thin and ultra-light, the SiO2 aerogel composite material lays underneath your Boreas, allowing you to achieve outstanding heat retention in environments as cold as-40 °C/-40°F.

 

To test the Boreas, we sprayed it with -196 °C/-320.8°F liquid nitrogen.

Its internal temperature remained at 28°C/82.4°F!

 

Second test. We wrapped a piece of raw meat in a 1mm cut of aerogel, then soaked it in liquid nitrogen for 20 seconds.

The meat comes out of the aerogel wrap still springy and incredibly fresh!

 

The Boreas is designed to take you anywhere, in almost any weather condition. Dive with it underwater up to 100 meters — the Boreas will never let you down!

Not enough? Well, we made the Boreas resistant to wrinkles and creases, too!

 

The Boreas interior is fully covered with a film of nano-silver coating, which maintains the temperature inside the jacket while preventing the loss of body heat.

 

 

In addition to keeping the heat within, the Boreas allows you to breathe as you wear it. Specially designed to preserve a comfortable fit, it effectively prevents your body from overheating or sweating.

The battery-free thermometer, flexible and embedded inside the jacket, will help you monitor your body temperature anytime and anywhere, letting you explore safely and with total peace of mind.

3. Is the Boreas jacket breathable?

Yes. The Boreas jacket has an incredible 17820 in water-vapor permeability (WVP); usually, a standard jacket has around 5000 in water-vapor permeability (WVP), and it is already considered a good one. Ours is just so awesome!

 

4. How warm is the Boreas jacket?

All Boreas jackets have been tested at -40℃/-40℉, the thermometer inside the jackets show a steady body temperature of around 28℃/82℉. All Boreas jackets are insulated with aerogel, simply put, all Boreas jackets are tested-proven to be warm, comfortable, and breathable.

 

5. Are the zippers waterproof?

Yes, all zippers on the Boreas jacket are YKK zippers made in Japan. YKK zippers are known to have high durability and waterproof. They do not get stuck even if they are soaked underwater.
