Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Thermal Headband

Another great option for climbing to the Mountain Summit through the always blowing winds of Mt Washington, NH

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some people wear a hat on their head when the tempertures turn cold, while others only want something that's going to keep their forehead and ears warm while not messing their hair up too much.  So to satisfy the occassional requests that we get for headbands, we have put our design twist on what we feel the best one should be for keeping your warmer - longer.

Our Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Thermal Headband does just that with its 2 layer technical fabric design.  The Outer Layer is 100% thermal windblocking, DWR water repellent and breathable, while the inner layer provides additional synthetic polyester insulating warmth.

On top of the exceptional warmth and windblocking protection that this item offers, we have also made the front forehead part of the headband taller in width then the status quo and also gave it better coverage over the ears and rear of the neck.

Dimensions Laying Flat:  
- 3 1/4" - 82.55mm front forehead edge tall
- 9 3/4" - 247.65mm total outer width
- 4 1/4" - 107.95 mm rear neck edge tall

Suggested Temperature Rating Range:  +32 F to -20 F (0C to -29C)

SIZING:  Circumference measured around your forehead to be comfortable of  21" - 533.4mm to 22" - 558.8mm

SIZE:  Juniors/Teens - BLACK

We designed our Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Thermal Hats for those potential new customers that live in normal Winter conditions, where cold is considered +5 F to +35 F degrees above zero.  These customers want a hat for these everyday Winter temperatures, but also want one that works great when the thermometer falls in the -minus temperature range as well.

Our Prairie Snowstorm Hats are built with a 2 layer fabric system that not only blocks out 100% of the wind with the Outer Shell fabric, but also provides thermal warmth with both layers of technical fabric combined that produces an average insulating thermal R-value of R-2.5.

The Prairie Snowstorm Hats do not have the superior wicking capabilities of our Arctic Thermal Hats, but with that said, they will also not create as much "head" heat because they do not have the same amount of insulation layering in their construction.  

The Prairie Snowstorm Hats do provide moisture vapor breathability in both layers of the technical fabric that we use and the Outer Shell is also DWR water repellent to keep the rain or wet snow from penetrating from the outside in.

The design of this hat is similar to what a standard "stocking hat" looks like, whereby you can either pull it straight down over the ears with no sides rolled up, or you can pull it further down and then roll the sides up.  But please note, this is the "only" similarity!  Technically speaking, there is not much else out in the market place that compares to this hat as we have designed and built it.

We use only the highest quality USA manufactured synthetic polyester that meets U.S. Military specifications in our construction processes and we are giving the the Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Thermal Stocking Hat the following conservative temperature rating range:  +32 F to -30 F.  (0C to -34C)

This hat is excellent for just about any outdoor activitiy that you can think of, in or around the suggested temperature rating range that we have suggested.  This is and excellent hat for those people that have to work full-time outside during the Winter time and even for those that may only work mornings and afternoons as Crossing Guards for their local school district.

Dimensions Laying Flat:  
- 10 1/4" - 260.35mm top of hat to bottom edge tall
- 11 1/2" - 292.1mm outer width at head opening edge
- 10 3/4" - 273 mm inner width diameter at head opening edge

SIZING:  Maximum circumference measured around your forehead to be comfortable of 22.5" - 571.5mm or less when the side edges are folded up and 23.25" - 590.55mm when wearing the hat straight with no folding of the side edges up.   The sizing dimensions are based on a non-tight head squeezing fit and are our best approximations only!

We designed our Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Thermal Hats for those customers that live in normal Winter conditions, where cold is considered +5 F to +35 F degrees above zero.  These customers want a hat for these everyday Winter temperatures, but also want one that works great when the thermometer falls into the -minus temperature range as well.

Our Prairie Snowstorm Hats are built with a 2 layer fabric system that not only blocks out 95% to100% of the wind with the Outer Shell fabric, but also provides thermal warmth with both layers of technical fabric combined, producing an average insulating thermal R-value of R-2.5.

The Prairie Snowstorm Hats do not have the superior wicking capabilities of our Arctic Thermal Hats, but with that said, they also do not create as much "head" heat because they do not have the same amount of insulation layering in their construction.  

We designed these hats for people who desire a simple pull-over "beanie" style hat that pulls on over the head and covers down to the bottom of the ears.  The style cut is nothing new, but the fabric configuration is, because it will keep your head warmer then most of the rest of the beanie style hats out in the market.

Technical Hat Specifications:
- 100% Thermal Windblocking, Breathable & DWR Water Repellent Treated.
-  Inner Layer is a mid-weight synthetic polyester technical thermal fleece.
- Moderate moisture wicking & temperant warmth throughout the recommended temperature ranges.

Dimensions Laying Flat:  
- 9" - 228.6mm top of hat to bottom edge tall
- 11" - 279.4mm outer width at head opening edge

NOTE:  Maximum head circumference measured around your forehead to be comfortable of 22.50" - 571.50mm or less.(Average head circumference range for this hat is 21.0" - 533.40mm to 22.50" - 571.50mm)

We build our Arctic Thermal Hats to endure any challenge that you can put them through.  Our hats have completed the 1150 miles of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race where temperatures dipped well below -60 degrees F, endured the Nov-April construction season work in Antarctica and we still had people with warm heads.

Our Arctic Thermal Hats include our exclusive adjustable shock cord & cord loc at the base, so that you can make sure that you never lose your hat again.  We also build our hats with enough hat length so that they pull down over your ears.

Our Hats are built to keep you head warmer & drier then just about anything out there on the Planet and are constructed with our exclusive 4 Layer technical fabric system that provides:

  • 100% Thermal Wind Blocking & DWR Water Repellent Breathable Outer Shell.
  • Thermal Layered Insulating, Highly Wicking & Breathable Inner Shell.
  • An Insulating variable R-Value insulation range of R-3.75 to R-7.50.
  • We also provide a unique tightening shock cord & cord loc for securing to your head and for eliminating convective heat loss.

We use only the highest quality USA manufactured synthetic polyester that meets U.S. Military specifications and other USA made insulation materials in our construction processes.  The Arctic Thermal Hat's also contain 30% "Earth friendly green" technical fabric material that is made from re-cycled plastic bottles, which is then processed into the finest synthetic polyester fabric in the World.

SIZING:  Maximum circumference measured around your forehead to be comfortable of 22.0" - 558.8mm or less.

Windblocking Arctic Thermal Hat

20081008HLXLW

We build our Arctic Thermal Hats to endure any challenge that you can put them through.  Our hats have completed the 1150 miles of the Iditarod Sled Dog Race where temperatures dipped well below -60 degrees F, endured the Nov-April construction season work in Antarctica and we still had people with warm heads.

Our Arctic Thermal Hats include our exclusive adjustable shock cord & cord loc at the base, so that you can make sure that you never lose your hat again.  We also build our hats with enough hat length so that they pull down over your ears.

Our Hats are built to keep you head warmer & drier then just about anything out there on the Planet and are constructed with our exclusive 4 Layer technical fabric system that provides:

  • 100% Thermal Wind Blocking & DWR Water Repellent Breathable Outer Shell.
  • Thermal Layered Insulating, Highly Wicking & Breathable Inner Shell.
  • An Insulating variable R-Value insulation range of R-3.75 to R-7.50.
  • We also provide a unique tightening shock cord & cord loc for securing to your head and for eliminating convective heat loss.

We use only the highest quality USA manufactured synthetic polyester that meets U.S. Military specifications and other USA made insulation materials in our construction processes.  The Arctic Thermal Hat's also contain 30% "Earth friendly green" technical fabric material that is made from re-cycled plastic bottles, which is then processed into the finest synthetic polyester fabric in the World.

We've continued to push the dynamics & asset value's built into the Winter/Cold. Weather Gear that we offer and the 3 Layered Massif Climbing Hat has just been tweated again for 2014.  We enhanced the inner most layer that surrounds the head and hair with an advanced thermal mositure wicking technical fabric, that also ramps up the overall thermal r-value by another 15%. (from R-3.4 to R-3.9)

The Massif Hat also offers a "thermal windblocking" hard faced outer shell layer, that has abrasion resistance, is breathable and DWR water repellent.  The middle layer provides mid-weight synthetic polyester insulating warmth, additional thermal windblocking protection and it matches up to the inner most heading surrounding layer that provides excellent "thermal moisture wicking & trransfer" capacity,  that has been further advanced in 2014.

We finish this hat off with a built in pull tight shock cord & cord-loc for tightening and sealing the heat in, along with a 1 1/2" wide by 3" long strip of highly reflective material for greater visibility from behind.  The entire package provides a strategic thermal insulation value "now" of R-3.9 and it ties in well with the design philosophy of our other existing high exertion XWick Series Gear items.

Other notable assets of this hat is it's lightweight, weighting in at only 3.5 ounces, its approximate 3 layer total thickness is only around 3/8" and despite having a thermal windblocking outer shell layer, it provides moderate stretch allowing for a "one sized" design and application.

We designed this hat for (2) two purposes, the first to be worn as a "solo soldier" by itself on your head and secondly to be able to still be worn on your head when you're heading a helmet or climbing helmet.

Pictured in the left column is a snapshot of this hat in conjuction with a Petzl helmet and due to the easy adjustablitiy of the Ecrin Roc, a quick spin of the adjustment wheels for the headband and webbing straps, the Massif Hat/Helment combination is a breeze.  Now you have ONE Hat to take with you on your next adventure, ok, besides your favorite baseball style cap for wearing when walking to base camp, that will take you from Base Camp all the way to the summit in the varying temperature ranges.  

So why not dump the windblocking beanie, the woven knit chin strap hat and the balaclava out of your backpack and throw in one of our XWick neck gaiters instead and then you'll have freed up space and a better technical combination for ultimate results by using the Massif Climbing Hat & XWick Neck Gaiter combination in tandem?

So why not let the winds, the rain & snow slip slide off of your head, while keeping it warmer and drier on your next climb, with an XWick Series Massif Climbing Hat?  Isn't "superior" ASSET Value for you hard earned money worth it to you?

NOTE:  Maximum head circumference measured around your forehead to be comfortable of 23 3/8" - 593.7mm or less.(Average head circumference range for this hat is 22.0" - 558.8mm to 23.25" - 590.6mm)

We designed and built the new Roughneck HHL 2.5 Hat to serve two primary purposes.  First to address the demands of everyday user's that wanted a 2 side flapped hat that would actually cut the winds and keep them warm and secondly to satisfy the needs of our base of outdoor workers who earn their paychecks working out in the elements during the cool and cold weather months of the year.  They told us we need a hat that will work in conjunction with our required Hard Hats and it needs to be built to work in keeping our heads warm, especially on those sub-zero face biting days during the heart of the Winter.

We designed and built this hat as usual, using a technical fabric laying system to ensure that the users will stay warmer - longer then anything else that they can get their hands on from other sources.  In this case, we selected to use approximately 2.5(two and a half) technical layers of fabric in total, to insure that the final product does what it is suppose to do, which is to keep the user warmer-longer then anything else similar that exists.

The Outer Hardfaced Shell layer provides excellent abrasion resistance, offers 95% plus in terms of thermal windblocking protection, offers very good moisture vapor breathability and is also DWR water repellent treated for shedding the moisture of snow, sleet or rain.  The 0.50 layer internal insert is placed at the top crown and sloping crown area of the hat and it provides excellent insulating warmth and heat reflection, while also allowing vapor moisture to pass through it.  The Inner most layer that surrounds the head, ears, face and chin is made from a heavyweight rated synthetic polyester that provides excellent overall warmth to the entire configuration of the hat.

We designed and cut the patterns for this hat to ensure that the back of the neck had above average protection from the elements, that the forehead area had adequate coverage, but not too much to push down over the eyes and so that the flaps when secured together would seal the heat in around the head and ears while also keeping the chin warm along the way.  The nice thing about this hat as well, is that you can regulate any heat build up by just separating the 2 flaps from each other and then just let them hang down.  We also sewed in heavy duty 1 inch wide hook & loop material for excellent sealing of the 2 flaps together, stitched the top seams on the hat together with heavy weight 69lb bonded nylon thread and the remaining seams are double stitched with high quality polyester thread to ensure a top of the line stitching job.

The SIZING on this hat is One Size Fits Most, however the best fit is going to be for Medium, Large & XL sized heads, measuring in circumference from 22.50" to 23 7/8".  This hat does have fairly good stretch, so in terms of USA hat sizes, it should accommodate people that wear hat sizes 7 1/8 to about size 7 5/8 on the high end.  As always heads on or below the low end of the scale may find the hat a little loose and on the larger head size end of the scale the hat may fit a little snugger.

This hat can be easily worn in the following temperature ranges:  +40F(+4C) to -40F(-40C)

As part of our additional expansion to our Prairie Series of Gear, we have designed and configured a new straight neck gator that presents some of the elements and assets of our Arctic Series Windblocking Thermal Neck Gator's, but tones down the thermal warmth or heat that it generates because not every area of the Country demands it.

At the same, people are sick and tired of buying poorly configured single layer straight neck gators that always end up leaving them with a gagingly wet face from their breath, which inturn freezes up and sags down on their face over time.

What we have developed as a solution to the comments we heard last Winter, is what has evolved into our new Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Neck Gator.  Again to prevent the gaggingly wet moisture build up and freezing on the outside of the gator, we build ours with 2 layers of technical fabric instead of just one.  Our outer layer in made from a 100% thermal windblocking, breathable and DWR water repellent synthetic polyester fabric, while the inner layer provides a mid-range of thermal warmth.  The combination again produces a great gear item that will not allow moisture to build up on the outside layer of the gator and will always keep your face warm and dry.  This neck gator will never freeze up like the other gator's you currently own and it always allows you to breath in warm air when it is pulled up and over your nose.

We sized our Prairie Series gator slightly larger then the average sizing for the run of the mill neck gator that we have all owned in the past and have designed it to be a "One Size Fits Most" configuration.  The verticle up and down length is shorter then our Arctic Series of straight neck gators and we also don't incorporate the "stay in any face position" pull tight shock cording on the top edge as the Arctic Series also have.

What you get when you purchase one of our Prairie Snowstorm Windblocking Neck Gators, is another unique piece of Winter Gear that will satisfy the requirements and demands of just about any Winter condition that Mother Nature bares upon us during the Winter months and you "won't" find anything else like it!

Finally, a real scarf that packs a punch and was designed and built to beat the crap out of the cold damp air and blowing winds that rear up during the late Fall, Winter and early Spring.

As scarves go, most if not all of them are a dime a dozen in terms of the lack of asset value that they don't provide for the end user.  You can spend a lot more on a nice fancy cashmere scarf and varying amounts less on knit and fleece scarves, yet the net results usually are the same...they do a poor job in blocking out the wind from penetrating through the fabric and once you have massive air penetration, the warmth and heat generated disappears as well.

It also seems that besides doing a very poor job in blocking out the wind and providing any true warmth, other then when you are inside the house, a cab, bus or subway train, that scaves in general are either too short or too long.  In other words, you either can't get a good wrap around the face and neck because it's too short, or it forever is hanging out the bottom of your jacket because its way too long...right?  You also have the issue of scarves being too narrow so they don't keep the back of the neck protected, let alone the face, or you get the wider ones that with one wrap around the head your entire face disappears from sight.

Many of us that have a few years of age under our belts, grew up with the knit or crochet scarf that Grandma made, right?  It was the best available at the time, right, made from wool yarn, a little scratchy to the skin.  In many respects and in fairness, it always seemed to do a much better job for the face and neck, then the "green rubber thermal boots" did for our toes and feet, whereby the only thing thermal about those boots was the word "Thermal" above the heel on the backside of the boot.

The innovation to scarves, as with many other cold weather gear and accessories has been painly slow over the years, except on those gear items that we at Technical Advantage Gear have decided to re-design, re-innovate and build with robust levels of true warmth and ultimate levels of asset values.  The only performance benchmarks that challenge us, are the ones that we continue to set, as the competition is more rooted into making high profits on imported goods that are built to look pretty, are sold in every possible store that hangs a shingle out front and customers buy it based on the logo name and not because it actually works in keeping a person warmer - longer.

Our business model is different.  We only design and built things that actually work, we sell them at everyday low prices, build them 100% in Wisconsin USA and build them for use for years to come...assuming the end user takes care of them.

The North End Commuter Scarf is an item that can be used during the work week, yet at the same time can be used on weekend adventures as well.  If you're cold at +40F or +30F then put it to use, just like many others who won't pull it out until its 0F, -20F or ever to -50F, "it is" built with the assets values that will pound down the elements of the cold damp winds, as well as the bitter dry face biting winds out on the Prairies.

The North End Commuter Scarf has "Certified 100% Thermal Windblocking Protection", which is something that most other scarf manufacturers don't offer.  If you block out 100% of the blowing and penetrating winds from entering the outer shell layer, guess what...you have a much warmer face and neck area to start with.  We then add an inside next to the skin layer that provides additonal mid-weight synthetic polyester warmth, keeping your warmer then anything you can imagine on your way too and from work, or just outside at play on weekends.

The outer shell layer is also DWR water repellent treated, so that it sheds the moisture from the cold rains or melted snow that lands or blow against it.  The dimensions of the North End Commuter Scarf are ideal in length, 46" (116.8cms), with just the right neck hugging face protecting coverage width of 6.25" (15.9cms).  We also have built in a "Position Loc Slot" on the inside scarf facing area, so that you can slide one end of the scarf through the slot and secure the scarf up tighter around the front neck area and keep it from sliding down out of position.  We doubt if the other 99.9% of scarf manufacturers can say that they offer this asset value as well?

So for those of you who don't like your hair messed up on the way to work from wearing a regular neck gaiter and or Winter Hat, here's the "best option" to add some warmth and protection on your commute to work.  Heck...if you get one of these, you probably won't notice the blast of cold damp air at the top of the steps when you come up from the "T" or local subway system in your area and you'll be the one turning your head up looking forward to where your walking and not tilting your head down to bury your chin into the upper collar of your jacket like everyone else, counting the steps to the front door of your office building?

Anyone can use one of these, teens, women, men, or even grandma or grandpa, or course if they haven't escaped to Florida for the Winter?

Get yours today...as this is yet another great re-innovation of a Winter mainstay...and finally its been engineered to actually work in keeping you warmer - longer!

We perfer to spell our neck gaiters as "gators", because like our preferred spelling, our neck gators are built differently from the other 99% in the market.

Our Gator's are built with a 2 Layer System, the first is a 100% thermal windblocking & DWR water repellent breathable outer shell, that almost totally eliminates the build up of moisture that usually collects from your breath on the outside of the material when it's pulled up over your nose.  Gone are the damp "frosty face" days and you will always be breathing in warm air instead of cold lung burning air, when the gator is pulled up over your nose.  No more "frozen" neck gator ever and the ability to always breath warm air, priceless!

The second layer on the inside is built from a very warm heavy weight technical fleece, that will keep you warm and dry beyond anything that you've had in the past.  The techical fabric combination has helped to keep our Field Testers warm & dry in temperatures in excess of -50 F (-45.5C)below zero.

On the top edge of our Neck Gator's, we have incorporated a top side shock cord w/cord loc that allows you the ability to secure the gator in any position on your face and have it stay where you want it to stay.

The Small/Medium size is ideal for most women to wear.

We use only the highest quality USA manufactured synthetic polyester materials that meets U.S. Military specifications in our construction processes.  Our straight Windblocking Arctic Thermal Neck Gator's also contain 50% "Earth friendly green" technical fabric material that is made from re-cycled plastic bottles, which is then processed into the finest synthetic polyester fabric in the World.

XWick 3.4TRH Expediton Windblocking Thermal Wicking Straight Neck Gaiter

The XWick Hat - XWick Straight Neck Gaiter on a misty damp, windy cold morning heading down to Tuckerman Ravine on Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

 

I guess you could call it innovation by design, as we have continued to push the limits in what can be done with selected Cold Weather Gear & Accessories.  In this case, we have further revolutionized the straight neck gaiter with our Expediton Series XWick 3.4 TRH Windblocking Thermal Wicking Straight Neck Gaiter, which is yet again in a class by itself.

The Expedition Series XWick 3.4 TRH straight neck gaiter has been developed for the user that participates in extreme cold weather activities under high exertion circumstances.  Maybe you're a climber heading to the summit of Everest in the Himalaya's or perhaps doing one of the other of the Seven Summits like McKinley, either way temperatures at the top could easily be a frostie -50F plus when you get there.  Despite the cold you've muscled and sweated your way to the top.

Further, perhaps your expedition fancy is skiing or kiting across the North or South Pole or something less extreme like high altitude snow shoeing in virgin powder.  In any or all of these examples you are exerting your body and producing sweat moisture while trying to balance your body heat and minimize the build up of perspiration or breath mositure that with the wrong gear will freeze up at some point.

We already offer a range of straight and drop pad neck gaiters that do an excellent job in keeping you warm and prevent you from having a frozen "mush" face, but high exertion extreme cold weather adventures require that extra kick in the thermal moisture wicking department and we did just that with the Expedition Series XWick 3.4 TRH straight neck gaiter.

XWick 3.4 TRH is designed for the user that is under physical exertion better then 70% of the time in face biting cold temperatures, where you need to stay warm and protected from frostbite, but you also need better moisture transfer from the area around your mouth.  The following is the secert to the XWick 3.4 TRH:

  • This Neck Gaiter is built with 3 technical fabric layers.  Layer 1 the Outer Shell, is a soft to the hand feeling Hardfaced thermal windblocking, breathable and DWR water repellent fabric.  This fabric is resistant to picking from brush and has a pretty good abrasion resistance as well.
  • The 2nd or middle layer is a mid-weight synthetic polyester fabric that supplies warmth without being hot and also offers additional breathability.  The 3rd or inner layer is the XWick factor, as it supplies excellent thermal mositure wicking and transfer.

The 3.4 TR is the combined thermal insulation value of the entire gear unit, which is a Thermal R value of 3.4.  The final alpha component of H again stands for the Hardfacing abrasion resistant finish on the outer shell layer fabric that we use for this neck gaiter. Although the outer shell fabric is hardfaced, it does have a soft feel to the hand and it does help to reduce the amount of blowing snow that could stick to it.

The configuration of the three technical fabrics that we use for this item, the orientation and cut along with their individual stretch capacity allows us to offer this item as a One Size Fits Most.  We also incorporate a top edge internal shock cord and cord-loc for securing the unit to any location on your face, while also sealing the heat in around the neck and face.

To better satisfy our smaller framed and petite base of customers, we decided to design and cut the patterns for a small-medium sized Windblocking Thermal Drop Pad Neck Gaiter and we've even sewn in a 7"long x 4 3/4" wide front pocket for the same price.

The thermal and fabric specifictions are identical to the Large/X-Large Drop Pad Neck Gaiter listed below, so you can read there if you desire more specific information.  In terms of the physical dimensions, they are as follows:

Approximate flat dimensions:  10 1/4" - 260.4mm Wide measured inside of the opening & 15 1/2" - 393.7mm in Total Length

Recommended average temperature ranges for wearing:  +10 F to -100 F (-12C to -73C)

Approximate Shipping Weight:  6.4 ounces

This is a unique design that we believe that you will not find anywhere else in the World, unless someone has copied it!

We're not quite sure, but we think that an Iditarod Musher would surrender his wallet before he would give up the Windblocking Thermal Drop Pad Neck Gator that is around his neck?  Why, because they not only block the wind out, but  they are also designed to keep the upper chest core warm as well and with a drop pad in both the front and in the back, they are reversible and can be spun around.  These Neck Gators also prevent moisture from building up anywhere on the outside of the gator and also allow you to always breath in warm air when it is pulled up over the face.  Gone are the damp "frosty face" days and you will always be breathing in warm air instead of cold lung burning air, when the gator is pulled up over your nose.  No more "frozen" neck gator ever and the ability to always breath warm air, priceless!

Our Drop Pad Gator's not only block out 100% of the piercing wind with its outer shell layer, but they are also DWR water resistant & breathable for keeping you warmer and drier then anything else in their class.  Our exclusive design uses a 2-3 Layer system of technical fabric and materials, with the inner layer that surrounds the face and body being made from a heavy weight technical fleece and in the center of the drop pads we have added some additional insulation for superior warmth.  The R-value of insulation alone that you get in the upper crest area from the drop pads is R-4.65.

The top edge shock cord w/cord loc also allows you to seal out the convective cold air flow, while also being able to maintain the position of the top edge anywhere on your face that you desire it to be positioned.

The Medium/Large/XL size is ideal for men and for women who want a little more freedom room around their neck and face area.

We use only the highest quality USA manufactured synthetic polyester that meets U.S. Military specifications and other USA made insulation materials in our construction processes.

This is a unique design that we believe that you will not find anywhere else in the World, unless someone has copied it!

We've stretched the design and innovation limits with our latest entry of neck gaiter designs.  In this case, we have further revolutionized the drop pad neck gaiter with our Expediton Series XWick 3.4 TRH Expedition 1.4 Windblocking Thermal Wicking Drop Pad Neck Gaiter, which is yet again in a class by itself.

The Expedition Series XWick 3.4 TRH drop pad neck gaiter has been developed for the user that participates in extreme cold weather activities under high exertion circumstances.  Maybe you're a climber heading to the summit of Everest in the Himalaya's or perhaps doing one of the other of the Seven Summits like McKinley, either way temperatures at the top could easily be a frostie -50F plus when you get there.  Despite the cold you've muscled and sweated your way to the top.

Further, perhaps your expedition fancy is skiing across the North Pole or trekking across Antarctica, or perhaps something less extreme like high altitude snow shoeing in virgin mountain powder.  In any or all of these examples you are exerting your body and producing sweat moisture while trying to balance your body heat and minimize the build up of perspiration or breath mositure that with the wrong gear will freeze up at some point.

We already offer a range of straight and drop pad neck gaiters that do an excellent job in keeping you warm and prevent you from having a frozen "mush" face, but high exertion extreme cold weather adventures require that extra kick in the thermal moisture wicking department and we did just that with the Expedition Series XWick 3.4 TRH Expedition 1.4 drop pad neck gaiter.

Although the outer shell fabric is hardfaced, it does have a soft feel to the hand and it does help to reduce the amount of blowing snow that could stick to it.  The Expedition is the rating that we have given to this item based on how it regulates the heat, transfers moisture and protects the user from the extreme elements while under physical exertion.  Finally, the 1.4 is the Drop Pad configuration on this gear unit, which is (1) one full drop pad in the front and an approximate 40% length drop pad in the rear.

The configuration of the three technical fabrics that we use for this item, the orientation and cut along with their individual stretch capacity allows us to offer this item as a One Size Fits Most.  We also incorporate a top edge internal shock cord and cord-loc for securing the unit to any location on your face, while also sealing the heat in around the neck and face.

We're enhancing the windblocking capacity on our lightweight/liner mittens by replacing the hardfaced outer shell material with a velour faced  technical material that now provides 100% thermal windblocking protection.  The 2 Layer package still produces the same thermal R-value of around R-2.8, but now the wind air penetration is totally eliminated, providing "you" with a better total asset value package.

The velour outer shells provide a soft surface for the emergency quick nose wipe and any snow dust or flakes that collect on the outer velour surface will melt away when you are back inside the house and the moisture will never penetrate to the inner layer, due to being DWR water repellent treated.

These liner units are for those of you who are impacted from Diabetes, Raynauds, Hereditary issues, Heart Disease, Aging and the like, whereby it is best that your hands are always protected and covered from the Fall/Winter/Spring elements, once your hand is outside of your regular mitten.  These units are designed to be used as a Lightweight independent mitten unit for the late Fall - early Spring temperature seasons.

These units should help in providing a better regulation of temperature around the hands and fingers, keeping them comforatable and "not sweatie hot" and if the hands/fingers do sweat like they occassionally do when first inside of gloves/mittens, these will do a great job in wicking the moisture away!

As a separate lightweight mitten, these are designed to be used in temperatures above +32F - 0C and are not sold as a replacement for regular fully insulated Winter Mittens.

We've added the Thermal Windblocking Wrist Warmers for people who want or desire a little more thermal warmth and windblocking protection on the lower to mid-wrist area that comes out from the mitten or glove.  

The Wrist Warmers can be used in combination with any of our range of Technical Advantage Gear Mittens as well as with most other brands of mittens or gloves, when extra skin coverage is desired.  The Wrist Warmers provide partial skin protection to the lower palm area that sits inside of the mitten or glove and then rides part way up the forearm toward the elbow.  All toll, the Wrist Warmers provide a total length coverage of 8.25" or 210mm.

The Wrist Warmers are built from a one layer fabric design, with the one layer providing "100% thermal windblocking protection" for added warmth and for cutting the impact from the blowing winds.  At the same time, the asset value of the technical fabric also offers breathablity and DWR water repellency for sheding the moisture.

The Wrist Warmers are made & sold as a "One Sized" application design and should fit most hands that range from Womens & Juniors, on up through Medium and most Large sized hands.  We show some pictures to the left of a small petite size hand wearing a Wrist Warmer as a point of reference, along with a chubby medium to large size hand as another point of pictured reference for you to view.

On smaller petite hands the fit may be slightly looser and on larger hands the Wrist Warmers will have a more secure fit.  Irregardless of the actual fit on your hand, they will never slide down when you put them inside of your mitten or glove due to the "thumb loop" that fits over the crotch of the thumb when you put them on each hand.

When you pull the Wrist Warmers onto your hands, don't be afraid of how your hand fits thru the opening on to the end, as the fabric provides side to side stretch and the "seams" are all sewn with "69LB bonded nylon thread" for maximum seam strength.  For a tigher fit on smaller forearms, you can always pull the Wrist Warmer over your shirt sleeve, before putting your jacket on and before sliding your hand with Wrist Warmer into your mitten.

New G2 Hand Sizing Matrix Made Easy

Step 1:  Measure from the base of the thumb crotch area to the tip of the middle finger, using a ruler, to establish the total longest length of your finger tips.

 

Step 2:  Measure across the hand from the base crotch area of the thumb to the outside of the hand using a ruler, to determine your hand width.

 

Optional Step 3:  Measure from the base of the thumb crotch area to the tip of the of the thumb as pictured below, to establish your current thumb length, again using a ruler.

Step 4:  See the Sizing Matrix Guide to determine which sized G2 Mitt will best fit your hand:

Mitt Size

Step 1: Max Finger Length Step 2: Max Hand Width Step 3: Max Thumb Length
X-Small: 5.75"- 146mm 3.5"- 88.9mm 2.8"- 71.1mm
Small: 6.0"- 152.4mm 4.0"- 101.6mm 3.2"- 81.3mm
Medium: 6.5"- 165.1mm 4.75"-120.7mm 3.4"- 86.4mm
Large: 7.0"- 177.8mm 5.25"-133.4mm 3.6"- 91.44mm

 

 

The second generation ("G2")of our Prairie Snowstorm Mitts builds on the great successes that we had with the original version release and with some well defined re-engineering now sets a new standard in the global market place for cold weather mittens and it's now available for smaller hands in our size of X-Small.

The G2 Prairie Snowstorm Mitts are built with technically advanced abrasion resistant thermal windblocking, DWR water repellent, breathable outer shells - a modified 5 layer top & bottom total layering system that also provides a further enhancement for conductive heat loss, about another 8% to 10% additional benefit - an approximate 10% enhancement to the bend flexibility and an increase of approximately 14% to the total length of the mitt allowing it to ride higher up your jacket sleeve.  You also can seal the cold air out at the wrist area with the "pull tight" shock cording and securing cord loc.

The overall thermal R-value for insulation rating on the G2 mitts is an approximate R-6.55 which is down ever so slightly from the original Prairie Mitts we introduced a couple of years ago.   However, we feel the further enhancement made through a technical material change to one of the internal layers, for even better conductive heat loss protection still provides an exceptional overall warmth package for the end user and we've yet to find a competitive mitt at any price point that comes even close to our standards.

For smaller women's hand sizes, we trimmed down the overall length and width on these mitts, both in the main mitten area, as well as with the thumbs.  The thumb unit has been shortened and narrowed vs the size small G2's, for a closer & better fit for women's petite hands.  The X-Small G2's offer all of the same asset values as our other sizes in this series, however they are just a little more compact in design for those smaller hands.

Dimensions:

  • Approximate Outer Length:  11.25" - 285.75mm
  • Approximate Outer Hand Area Width:  5.00" - 127.00mm
  • Approximate Hand Opening Area Inside Width:  5.75" - 146.05mm

The G2's on Mt Washington, New Hampshire heading down to Tuckerman Ravine

 

The second generation ("G2")of our Prairie Snowstorm Mitts builds on the great successes that we had with the original version release and with some well defined re-engineering now sets a new standard in the global market place for cold weather mittens.

The "New" G2 Prairie Snowstorm Mitts are built with technically advanced abrasion resistant thermal windblocking, DWR water repellent, breathable outer shells - a modified 5 layer top & bottom total layering system that also provides a further enhancement for conductive heat loss, about another 8% to 10% additional benefit - an approximate 10% enhancement to the bend flexibility and an increase of approximately 14% to the total length of the mitt allowing it to ride higher up your jacket sleeve.  You also can seal the cold air out at the wrist area with the "pull tight" shock cording and securing cord loc.  Of course you also gain some extra length in the fingertips and length of the thumb, which further accomodates more uses with different finger & thumb lengths.

The overall thermal R-value for insulation rating on the G2 mitts is an approximate R-6.55 which is down ever so slightly from the original Prairie Mitts we introduced a couple of years ago.   However, we feel the further enhancement made through a technical material change to one of the internal layers, for even better conductive heat loss protection still provides an exceptional overall warmth package for the end user and we've yet to find a competitive mitt at any price point that comes even close to our standards.

One thing that remains the same with our new G2 Mitts, is the global benchmark standard that we've  set and have maintained with our inner most layer that surrounds the hand, that still provides superior excellence in thermal moisture wicking & transfer.  You "will not" find a competitive brand that even comes close to what these or any other Technical Advantage Gear Mitt has to offer in this area as well.  

Therefore, those of you who have terminally cold fingers that sweat initially when inside of someone else mitts and then the moisture build up excellerating the cooling process, or perhaps you are a diabetic or have reynauds disease, these are going to be your best hope for an extended period of warmth when you're being active outdoors in the Winter time.  These mitts are the total package and "are built" with the assets required for extending your period of enjoyment out in the cold air and will save you many dollars, euro's, pounds, etc., for the price that they are offered at, versus thinking that if you spend more money that you are going to get a better mitten from someone else!

You also will not find another brand of mittens that are built with the two outer most layers that both provide "thermal windblocking protection" and "DWR water repellancy".  Brands built with nylon outer shells block some of the effects of the wind, but they provide "zero" themal warmth value to the overall mitt.  Most nylon shells "are" DWR treated to repell the moisture, however through extended use in wet conditions the benefit of the DWR treatment breaks down and moisture enters the mitts from the outside, but NOT WITH OURS as the next layer inside as we mentioned is also DWR water repellant treated and of course thermal windblocking.

As mentioned at the top of this section, we also coverted the outer shell layer material to one that offers excellent abrasion resistance with its hardfaced finish, which still has a soft to the touch feel to it.  We never had a wear problem with the original shell material that we used, rather we decided to enhance the total asset value that the G2 mitten has to offer by incorporating this new technical fabric.  We also continue to be proud to say that all of the technical fabrics and insulating materials that we build these mittens with are 100% made in the USA and of course we 100% make these mittens here in Wisconsin - USA.

Anyway, the Second Generation of our Prairie Snowstorm Mitts will again offer YOU, yes YOU the best asset value for the price that you pay for them.  So try them...we know that you'll love them!

Did You Know...

Did you know what the layering system inside of our "new" G2 mitts looks like?

Like our original Prairie Snowstorm Mitts, the second generation G2 Hardfaced Mitts offer 5 layers of technical insulating materials on the Top side and 5 layers on the Bottom side, providing the best overall protection for minimizing the effects of conductive & convective heat loss as compared to other brands of mittens and they pack an second to no one thermal insulation value of R-6.55 on both the top and on the bottom side of the mitts, wow!

 

Ever wonder what the inside of  your current mitts might look like?

Well now you do and you can see for yourself....like foam rubber for making them look puffy, plastic to seal the sweat moisture in so your hands get wet & colder faster, minimal actual insulation material throughout & a bottom side of the mittt under the palm that is only about 20% as thick as the top.

Ever wonder why most brands of mittens don't keep your hands & fingers warm, other then when you're inside the store trying them on?

Did You Know...

Did you know that the human hand contains approximately 200 sweat gland ducts per square centimeter on the top side of the hand & approximately 370 sweat gland ducts per square centimeter on the bottom side of the palm of the hand?

So if the botom side of the hand has twice as many sweat gland ducts as the top of the hand for dissipating heat and sweat moisture, then why are most other brands of mitts built two, three or four time thicker on the top side of their mitts then on the bottom side?

Technical Advantage Gear "correctly" & "adequately" equalizes the amount of technical insulating  material for both the top & bottom sides of each mitt that we build!

Extreme Element Arctic Thermal Mitts "NO Thumb Loc Straps"

12512EEMHM

This is the number one choice and size for most female Sled Dog Mushers!

Size Medium no longer available with detachable thumb loc straps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Comes with uniques Wing Loc - 3" hook & loop strips on each inside edge - Top & Bottom

Wing Loc seals out all of the snow

We designed and cut the patterns for the size Medium Mitts with our wonderful female customers in mind and the size Large & X-Large for the guy's hand sizing.  Now it's not to say that if your hand fits the sizing template guy's that you can't buy a pair, you certainly are invited to do so, as these are specially made for smaller adult hands.

The design and structural framework for the Extreme Element Arctic Mitts is as follows:

  1. There are 6 top and 6 bottom layers of technical insulating materials used in the manufacturing process, which is a global benchmark that we set.
  2. The thermal insulating value on these mitts top & bottom is R-9.3, which is the highest warmth factor built into any mitten on the Planet.
  3. The outer shell fabric consists of a Hardfaced windblocking thermal fabric, which  further reduces snow from sticking to the mitts and also provide some additional abrasion resistance.  The next layer in provides 100% THERMAL WINDLOCKING PROTECTION, again a global benchmark that we set.
  4. The wrist area has a built in pull tight inner shock cord and external cord-loc for sealing in the heat.
  5. We also provide our "Wing Loc" strips at the hand opening area or end of the mitt, to further block out snow and mositure from entering the mitten guantlet area.

The configuration of this mitten also provides total 100% Thermal Windblocking protection, DWR water repellent and breathable outer shell, exceptional upper and lower equalized thermal insulating warmth, great thermal moisture wicking around the hand, while also providing slightly better gripping flexibility.

This "series" of mittens is by far the warmest in the World in terms of thermal insulation values offered and also provides and sets the global benchmark for highest total "asset values" offered in a mitten.  This IS the mitten that you want on your next Expedition, somewhere around the Global!

Sizing Information Extreme Mitt Series

 

Convection or Convective Heat Loss:
 
 
...the loss of heat by Convection is caused or occurs in response to the movement of a fluid or gas...The basic natures element that contributes to convective heat loss is the wind.  An example could be the draft of cold air that goes down your neck collar when you go outside, because your jacket is not zipped up.  Another example could be the cold air of the wind that penetrates the nylon outer shell of your current "status quo" designed mittens that are not made from a wind blocking formulation.  The cold air penetrates directly into the insulation layer of these mittens, which then causes your fingers to become colder much faster.  Or a third example is the wind or cold air that enters into the hand compartment of your mitts through the hand opening area, because they do not have a wrist webbing strap or pull tight shock cord w/cord loc that is available for sealing the heat in and the cold air or wind out.

One Sized - Tube Sock Style Cut - GREY

Thermal Moisture Wicking Liner Socks

91209LSGREY

 

5 inches wide  x  22 inches long

- Measured flat -

Color:  Grey - as shown above

These are about the most simplistic design cut in terms of a sock design, but we did so in order to have a One Size fits most format, with adequate side to side stretch.

The fabric we use actually has a higher thermal value then a quality heavyweight 300 weight fleece, despite only being about 20% as thick, but the other thing that it offers is superior excellence in terms of moisture wicking and transfer, which is an issue with pure fleece and other materials used for making socks.

We suggest that these socks be used as liners to go under your regular heavy boot socks and be the layer that goes right against the skin of your feet.  The benefit that it offers right against the skin, is its enhanced moisture wicking & transfer capability, which will help to keep your feet dryer.  Dryer feet and toe's means warmer feet for a extended period of time.  Sweaty feet and lack of physical activity, starts the cooling effect process inside of the boot, leading to those cold or frozen toes.

Whether you buy a pair of these or not and you have terminal cold feet, you should at least be always dousing your toes with "foot powder" before you put your socks on, to help absorb your foot sweat.

If you buy a pair or two of these socks, then you can decide how you want to wear them.  Wear them as a liner sock, wear them as your main sock or wear them either way depending on the temperatures.  If you wear them as a main sock in extreme severe cold, we would recommend the use of foot powder and make sure that you have a good Winter boot that has a great inside liner.

These are not "miracle socks" that are going to solve all of your problems and issues with cold feet, rather they are a possible solution to extending the length of time that you can spend outside with comfortable feet, instead of enduring cold or frozen toes and feet as usual.  Again, the design of the sock is simplistic, whats not is the technically advanced fabric that we use that packs a "thermal wicking punch"!

User's Tidbit:

We have a good Technical Advantage Gear customer who is also a severe diabetic, who tells us that these are the only socks that we will wear on his feet, irregardless of what  Season of the year it is.

He tells us that they help to keep his feet warm and dry during the Cool & Cold weather months, while keeping them comfortable and dry during the Summer months.  For him at least, they help in dealing with the excessive feet sweating that he has to deal with on a daily basis due to his diabetes.

Sizing & Installation Information

 

 

If you're looking for a lightweight cockpit cover for your kayak, in terms of flexibility, compactability and weight, then you're looking in the right place!

Our Technical Advantage Kayak Cockpit Covers are made from heavy duty 1.9 oz coated Ripstop Nylon, so they are not only waterproof and UV resistant, but they are also tough enough to not tear.  The material that we build our covers with make them lightweight and flexible, as compared to others on the market that are stiff, firm and bulky to pack when not in use. Our covers also will easily fit inside of our supplied 6" x 8" nylon travel bag and when packed are small enough to fit into the mesh pocket on your life jacket, or you could with a little effort stuff one into your back pant pocket.

Our Kayak Covers are built using a mid-range 1/8" shock cording that is built in around the edge framework of the cover, which is strong enough to allow for a firm and tight seal around the cockpit drop edge, but also facilitates the use of a cordloc that provides for a secure locking seal on the shock cord.  Other brands of covers use a larger diameter of shock cording and an approximate two inch long plastic slide tube, which doesn't allow for as tight a secure lock on the shock cord as our provided cord loc does.

In our travels with our own recreational & sea kayaks during the Summer and Fall months, we notice that most other kayakers tend to leave their kayak cockpits open, instead of having them covered during travel on their vehicles.  We believe that the cockpit openings should be covered to eliminate the additional air flow drag that occurs when you're humming down the highway, especially now with the higher gasoline prices that have been and will be around for the long term future.

Some kayakers will never cover the opening of their kayaks, even in storage for keeping the mice, bugs and spider webs out of the cockpit area.  Others own a cockpit cover and only use it when they have the kayak in the garage or shed and even others own a cover and would like to use it during travel, however it doesn't hold tight enough for it to not blow off.

With the Technical Advantage Kayak Cockpit Covers, we sewn in loop side velcro type material in two different locations on each side, so that you can attach the included stretch cording safety strap in the closest location to the breakline of the cockpit top edge taper.  With the supplied safety cord strap and the plastic hook that is located at the end of the shock cording that is built into the cover, which you should hook onto the stretch cording built into the top of your kayak after you have tightened the cover down and locked the cordloc, you're never going to lose the cover when driving down the road.

We also sew on a couple of strips of highly reflective tape to the top of the cockpit cover, so you can pick you kayak out of the crowd in the dark when shining your flashlight around.  Not necessarily a deal maker, rather just an added feature that we build in for the special price.

To size up your Kayak Cockpit cover, just take a measuring tape and measure from the center of the back outside edge behind the seat forward to the front outside edge of the opening.  This gives you the length.  Then measure at the widest estimated "width" area of the cockpit opening, again measuring from the top outer edge on the left and right side and this measurement will give you the width.  

After you have these two dimensions, you can then determine from the sizing range that we provide for each size, whether we can sell you a cover or not.  We do not have covers that will fit every single kayak that is built, but we should cover a good majority of the single operator cockpit openings in the market.

The dymamics of the Dog clothing and accessory market is quite interesting and ever growing, which inturn is continuing to stretch the imagination in terms of what dog owners are looking for in taking care of man's best friend.

We confess that Dog Neck Gaiters weren't on any of our "to do" planning or concept boards, rather some of our good customers were indirectly pushing us in this direction.  They would purchase one of our warm dog jackets and them some were also purchasing at the same time one of our One Sized Prairie Snowstorm Straight Neck Gaiters.  Initially we thought, "hey great, the dog stays warm and the pet owners neck stays warm...wrong"!

The reality was the dog was staying warm with the new Technical Advantage Dog Jacket and the dogs neck was also staying warm with the Prairie Snowstorm Neck Gaiter that was purchased with the jacket.  I guess you could say that the "light bulb" finally went off and we realized customers were asking for more of the best technical gear for their favorite four legged friend and they wanted it from us.  "Ding - Ding...we heard you loud and clear"!

What we developed for a greater coverage spectrum of dogs, was to cut patterns based on K9 size & measurement by weight statistics and we came up with (5) five neck gaiter sizes that will cover most of your favorite friends at home.  At the same time, we built them to the same tough and thermal warmth standards that resonate with all of the other Cold Weather Gear & Accessories that we build under the Technical Advantage Gear brand.  In a nut shell so to speak, the following are the design spec's for these dog neck gaiters:

  1. They are built with a 2 Layer technical fabric system, with the Outer layer having a Hardfaced abrasion and "pick" resisting finish, which is also thermal windblocking, DWR water repellent and breathable.
  2. The Inner layer that goes next to the fur is a mid-weight synthetic polyester that provides thermal insulating warmth for the neck area and is also breathable.
  3. The neck gaiter total side to side stretch specification is set at approximately 1.5" - 38.1mm, which has been done so that when your dog runs into the brush, the neck gaiter won't get "picked" off of their necks and also so the dog won't be able to shake or paw it off.
  4. To size a neck gaiter for your dog, just take a tape measure and determine the circumference around the mid range area of the necks total length and then pick which size is appropriate.  The perfect non-stretched fit for each size is the middle dimension.(i.e.  example XS - Size Range 9" to 11", perfect neck circumference measurement is 10".  To use this XS gaiter on a dog with a 11" neck circumference is only going to allow about a 1/2" - 12.7mm average stretch to get the unit over the head and ears)
  5. The Dog Neck Gaiters are also built with top to bottom taper, with the bottom edge being about a 1/2" - 12.7mm wider dimension.  Therefore and PLEASE NOTE that the Technical Advantage Logo always is the end that goes closest to the ears.

Your favorite friend now has the opportunity to wear some or more of the most technically advanced gear in the World, so why not get one or more on order today?  At the same time however, don't forget that your Dog(s) want you to stay just as warm so you'll need to get one or more Technical Advantage Gear items on order for yourself.........We do appreciate your business!

Dog Wrist Wraps

Grade #1 Neoprene Dog Wrist/Sweat Wraps

"Iditarod Tested Tough"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Number 1 volume usage size Wrist Wrap for your Racing Sled Dogs or just for the family pet that may have a sore wrist area.  The wraps are meant to be placed at the top of the dog ankle joint up towards the elbow area, with the textured rubber side going against the fur.  These warps are meant to give the best support at 5mm's thick, while also keeping the applied to wrist area warm, so that it isn't as stiff and swollen making it easier for the dog to move.

Our Wrist or Sweat wraps are "all" made from Grade #1 Neoprene, with one side having a raw textured finish that goes against the dogs wrist to keep the heat in and to offer the extra support that you demand for your animal from the proper 5mm (3/16") material thickness.  The second or outer side of the wrap has a soft bonded nylon material finish that adheres to the 1 inch wide strip of heavy duty "hook" material that is sewn the length of the wrap onto the raw textured neoprene side edge, so that you will have a very secure lock when the wrap is used on your dog.  Our 1 inch strip of "hook" material gives you greater surface area for greater bonding to the nylon side of the wrap, versus those manufacturers that only provide a 3/4" strip of the same material.  We also sew our "hook" material strips with 69 lb bonded nylon tread, that insures that the strip will still be there long after the dog has tried to chew through the rest of the wrist wrap material.

The 5mm thickness of our material also supplies the best level of support and rigidity for your dogs wrist area, but still allows for flexing and motion of the dogs wrist during movement.  The premium Grade 1 neoprene that we use also provides for the best nylon material for adhering to the hook material strip, which is superior to those wraps that are made from Grade 2 neoprene.
