Insulation «from A to Z» — how not to get confused in grams?


One of the widespread myths is the opinion that the membrane heats up. But no, it has other functions. When it comes to temperature, insulation comes to the fore.

Today, there is such a variety of heaters that sometimes it is not easy to understand them. In fact, it is not at all necessary to rack your brains trying to remember how thinsulate differs from isosoft. It is enough to know how much insulation is in a particular model.

Usually on the label next to the type of insulation you can find the number “in grams” — it is she who will help you understand what temperature this outerwear is designed for.


Winter set

for winter sets, the optimal value is from 280 g / m2 — this allows you to wear overalls in winter in frost down to -30 ° without additional layers, and for trousers this value should be from 180 g / m2.

Demi-season kit

For demi-season clothing for autumn and early spring, sets with insulation up to 120 g/m2 are suitable (included, for example: 120 g/m2 for a jacket and 80 g/m2 for trousers for weather from -5° to +10°). Although in many regions of Russia such a kit will be useful until June.

Windbreaker for girls

For late spring and summer, jackets-windbreakers / raincoats without insulation are great.

INTERESTING FACT: the insulation itself does not heat, it only retains the heat of the child’s body! But this works in conjunction with the membrane tissue, as it does not allow cold air and water to penetrate inside.

We wish you happy walks regardless of the weather!
