Vollebak is gearing up for space travel with its new “Titan” collection. As per the label’s website, the brand created the Titan range for “places colder than Earth.” An introductory description explains that the collection was built and designed to withstand up to -100°C in a liquid nitrogen chamber with the help of using NASA-developed technology for their winter apparel.
The pieces are designed with the purpose to withstand cryogenically cold weather. The three-piece, three-colorway line features a puffer jacket, trousers and a trapper hat in blue, black and white. Each of the pieces are constructed with special space parachute fabric developed by NASA as well as military materials developed for the British Special Forces. To add a sustainability element to this, the insulation is made from recycled plastic bottles.
The Titan Puffer features fleece-lined pockets, as well as Velcro cuff adjusters and an insulated hood with a cord adjuster on both sides. Tested in a liquid nitrogen chamber, the pieces are durable and lightweight and can maintain a warm and stable body temperature even at -85°C. The quilted Titan Pants are also made for freezing weather, pairing nicely with the puffer jacket and features oversized pockets and stretch mesh for maximum comfort. The hat includes a detachable fleece-lined face mask and chin fasteners attached with metal snap buttons to keep winds at bay. Not only is the collection lightweight, but it is waterproof, breathable and adaptable to weather conditions.
Vollebak’s “Titan” collection is now available on the brand’s website. Prices range from $295 to $1,595 USD.
