ArmaTech 101 - Why Armadillo Merino®
ArmaTech. Great Design and Armadillo Merino® Fabric
Why Armadillo Merino®?
At Armadillo Merino®, we care about you knowing that the kit you wear could save your life. We take this responsibility seriously and think about it everyday. Our garments are designed with you in mind.
Design “Focusing on the details”
The details make the difference. All of our garments have longer backs, seamless shoulders, longer arms and longer cuffs as we design for the professional user and not for outdoor sports. No annoying labels on the neck, and discrete branding make our products different. Add to this, we only select the finest merino wool, as not all merino is created equal, and the best manufacturing partners, and you have some of the details that go into each and every one of our products.
We are proud of our garments as they have been to space and are used in the most extreme environments in the world.
Armadillo Merino® Fabric “multi attribute clothing”
No smell - Naturally anti-bacterial, wear Armadillo for days on end, and it will not smell. Test it for yourself, and tell us about it. We also have a detailed technical explanation here.
No melt, no drip - Natural flame resistance to 570˚C with no toxic fumes. Compare this to synthetics that can melt at 170˚ C and you have some serious extra protection. To learn more about the natural flame resistance, click here.
Hot or Cold, always comfortable - When it is cold, Armadillo will keep you warm and when it is hot Armadillo will help to keep you cool. We call this Thermoregulation.
Natural UV protection against the suns harmful rays. Armadillo Merino® naturally absorbs UVA and UVB rays to offer you up to SPF 50 protection, depending on the fabric. Learn more.
Armadillo adsorbs your sweat then releases it into the air more efficiently than any synthetic. It can also absorb up to 30% of its' own weight in moisture, leaving your skin dryer and more comfortable. More here.
Go further on less. Armadillo garments give you the edge by superior thermoregulation, moisture management, and by delaying the onset of sweat, reducing the rate of moisture loss and your calorie burn. Stamina, the ability to go further.
We’re offering you an unfair advantage.
