Using snow pole to walk one step after another, Nordic Walking can consume large amounts of heat (as high as 400 per hour calories) by exercising more muscles when doing this activity. Thus moisture absorbency, sweat shifting, warmth keeping and stretch are important in terms of garment choosing.
Combining function and fashion, Everest introduces a series of fabrics for Nordic Walking,
1.Double weaved Ever light shell fabric is soft, light, flexible and non-cemented processing, with dual color and two sided weave effect. Because the fabric is light, soft, retains heat and has a high stripping strength, it is extremely suited to the demands of outdoor activities; whether for long trousers or thin jackets used for skateboarding, rollerblading etc.
2.Ever QSR has quick dry and soil release functions with good hand feel, comfortable touch, breathablity and easy to clean properties. Because of its hydrophilic property, the soil absorbed on the fabric surface can be removed easily after home laundry washing.
3.Ever Nylon Cottony creates an artificial natural cotton feel, ensuring the material is soft and comfortable on the skin. The surface of the fabric also has a texture that makes it eminently suited in the production of clothing for to such outdoor activities as golf etc. Ever Nylon Cottony Stretch has the high quality feel of nylon, the natural feel of cotton and is comfortably elastic when worn. Different products can be supplied depending on different demands for extendibility, with four way flexible fabrics that have two-sided flexibility/elasticity of warp and woof.
4.Ever Chite uses chitsan to destroy micro organism form effectively stops bacteria and fungus from growing and has an odor removal effect. It also is moisture absorbing and quick drying, anti-static, has very good drapability and good soft feel and is also long-term wash durable.
5.Ever LDWR has lasting durable water repellent property. Even after washing over 100 times it still has water repellence effect; Ever LDWR undergoes a special process that makes it repel water and stains without affecting its comfortable touch. It is suited for sports, outdoor leisure clothes and, especially, for wilderness activity clothing.
6.Ever Bamboo Carbon/ Ever Carbon utilizes high polymer mixing technology to spin fibers contained carbon particles. This ensures that the material absorbs moisture, dries quickly and repels water. This also uses the far infrared rays and ion characteristics of Bamboo charcoal fiber to keep the wearer remains warm, promote blood circulation and the elimination of bad smells. After highly mechanical elasticity processing, Ever Bamboo Carbon is highly elastic and has excellent recoverability, a soft and refined texture. It is also a stretchable fabric that is both health and comfortable to wear. Also, the color of bamboo carbon yarn is usually black or grey and dyeability is thus affected. To rectify this, Everest has introduced a white bamboo carbon yarn with rich color changes to allow more flexibility in terms of fabric application.
7.Ever Recycle is produced from 100% recycled materials, such as used polyester bottles and old clothes or fabrics.. Not only is the quality and appearance exactly the same as that for new products, a number of new functions are added, including breathability, quick dry and water repellence. This infuses the products with new life and makes them both easy to clean and arrange.
8.When on the way to ski grounds or to do extreme sports there is no need for high level protection, but what is required from a garment is thinness lightness and warmth. Ever Flame Lamination is the best choice for "pre sport warm up attire", allowing the wearer to move freely but keep warm. Other fabrics suited to Nordic Walking are Ever Quick Dry/UV Cut, Ever Active Sports Stretch, and Ever Sports/ Daily Casual.
