Next-generation insulation technology.Perfecting one of our most avant-garde concepts, the upgraded Guide Aerogel Hybrid Pants 2.0 feature insulation fibers made from a material so incredibly light it is sometimes referred to as ‘frozen smoke’, boasting the highest insulation-to-weight properties known to man. We took this cutting-edge synthetic insulation, covered it in a new ultralight, stretchable and breathable Japanese shell fabric, and combined it with a comfortable and fast-wicking merino-wool blended fleece for a pair of uniquely warm, technical and versatile mid-layer pants.
Why you will like it
- Aerogel has the highest insulation-to-weight ratio known to man.
- An innovative combination of synthetic insulation and merino-wool fleece.
- Will retain its amazing insulating capabilities even when compressed.
The Guide Aerogel Hybrid Concept is an obvious contender to our ‘team favorite’ title. Combining silica Aerogel insulation panels and a new DWR-treated ultralight shell fabric with strategic merino wool fleece panels, it provides a unique combination of lightweight insulation, breathable comfort and freedom of movement.
They are lightweight, comfortable, breathable and versatile — but above all they come with unexpected insulation capabilities: The Aerogel panels will keep you surprisingly warm on colder days while staying peculiarly cool-ish during harder work. The material also has the unique ability to retain its amazing insulation capabilities even when compressed by a cold chairlift.
The merino wool fabric has a complex double-knit structure, keeping the merino to one side of the fabric only, reaching 40% wool content where it matters. It is soft, warm and stretchable, effectively transporting moisture away from your body.
The Guide Aerogel Hybrid Pants 2.0 have been upgraded with our new DWR-treated PFC-free ultralight rip-stop shell fabric that is stretchable, very breathable and weather resistant.
They have an athletic fit that provides excellent freedom of movement and they are perfect as a mid-layer during winter for ski-touring or alpinism.
The Guide Aerogel Hybrid 2.0 Concept is a fundamental part of The Guide System™, our selective ecosystem of ultra-high-end technical layering products for professional use in extreme conditions.
Aerogel is composed of more than 95 % air, making it the lightest solid substance, with the lowest thermal conductivity known to man.
This innovative technology by Primaloft is called Cross Core™, incorporating silica aerogel in insulation fibres for the first time.
