The Thermore Group debuted the brand’s most “dynamic stretch insulation in its five decades of innovation”—Freedom.

Freedom, made from 50 percent post-consumer recycled polyester, offers “ground-breaking stretch” while providing warmth across many uses, including alpine sports, running, golf, commuter, fish & hunt, cycling, and other active pursuits.

Dynamometer testing shows that the insulation, which comes in four levels of warmth, ranging from 60 to 150 grams per square meter, has “incredible elasticity and recovers to 100 percent of its pre-stretch size.” 

Thermore noted in a release that the brand’s Freedom insulation “adds a higher level of comfort and functionality than previously attainable in the stretch category.” 

Freedom insulation is GRS-certified, machine washable and/or dry cleanable and “design-friendly for product developers with high fiber migration resistance.” 

Thermore introduced recycled fibers in the 1980s and has “mastered” the technology.

Based in Milan, Italy, the company specializes in researching, developing, producing and marketing thermal insulation for performance apparel. Thermore caters to outerwear industry brands through its global sales network and production facilities in Asia and Europe. The company is focused on sustainable innovation, using post-consumer waste, including PET bottles.
