Outlast® - How it works
Outlast® Adaptive Comfort® materials will keep you more
comfortable by absorbing excess body heat when you
create it and releasing it when you need it most.
Infrared pictures can clearly demonstrate how Outlast® Adaptive Comfort® materials work. Due to basic
physical laws, all bodies (humans, plants, objects) release energy in terms of thermal radiation. The higher
the object's temperature is, the more intensive the infrared radiation released.
A test was done with a pair of gloves. One glove was equipped with and the other one without Outlast®
material. Each gloved hand was then laid on an ice block for five minutes. The test illustrates how
temperature changes can be reduced remarkably with Outlast® products.

The origins of Outlast® technology go back to 1988
when NASA implemented a program with private
industry to develop thermally adaptive phase-change
materials that could be applied to astronauts’ suits and
gloves. Through this program, the original Outlast®
technology was developed to provide better protection
against the bitter cold and scorching heat encountered

Our Outlast socks are manufactured with Outlast acrylic fiber. These fibers are spun with the Outlast
technology, thus keeping it in the sock for the life of the garment.
