Switzerland based textile innovator HeiQ recently launched HeiQ XReflex, a radiant barrier technology on high performance fabrics in order to create warmth without any bulkiness, allowing the user to “Wear Less in Winter”. HeiQ XReflex is created through collaboration between HeiQ and Xefco, an Australian textile technology company that is a partner of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and Deakin University. Humans lose about 60 per cent of body heat through thermal radiation. In order to stay warm, insulations made out of down, synthetic or fleece are typically used in outerwear. The thicker the insulation, the less heat loss and the warmer the person. For the active person or traveler, the goal is to find the same warmth without all the bulk.
