Marmot debuted its new WarmCube technology with this hybrid down/synthetic jacket at the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Denver.
The idea behind WarmCube is to employ 3D construction to conform to the curves of the body, thus trapping warm air as close to your skin as possible.
An additional layer of 40-gram synthetic insulation seals the deal, bringing quite possibly one of the warmest coats you’ll ever wear. Fresh off winning a Gold ISPO Award in Munich earlier this month, the West Rib Parka features Marmot’s new innovative WarmCube Construction technology.
WarmCube insulation technology combines the warmth of down with a unique baffling system designed to trap air and hug the body for maximum warmth.
Since its beginnings in 1974, insulation has been a part of Marmot’s DNA. As a testament to those roots, Marmot, a global leader in high-performance outerwear and a division of Newell Brands (NYSE: NWL), is introducing the West Rib Parka at the 2019 Outdoor Retailer Snow Show in Denver, Colo.
Fresh off winning a Gold ISPO Award in Munich earlier this month, the West Rib Parka features Marmot’s new innovative WarmCube Construction technology. WarmCube employs a unique 3D construction to multiply the insulating power of down by conforming to the shape of your body and trapping warm air next to your skin.
With an additional layer of 40g sheeted synthetic insulation, the West Rib is the perfect alpine climbing warmth layer for belays and bivys. Named for the challenging route up Mt. Denali first identified by legendary photographer Bradley Washburn, the West Rib Parka represents the pinnacle of technical insulation.
