Boogie Matrix softshell
Boogie™ represent one of the most advanced softshell jackets ever made.
Boogie™ will continously balance your body temperature to keep you comfortable. Microscopic thermocules absorb and store excess heat as it's created, then release it when you need it most.
Boogie™ is made from a 4 layer sandwich construction:
- 1. Stretchable, 100% polyester 20D Interlock.
- 2. Waterproof, breathable, stretchable Hytrel® thermoplastic elastomer membrane.
- 3. Functional Outlast® Thermo-adaptive Matrix coating.
- 4. Stretchable inner face. 100% polyester 20D Interlock.
RRP: € 389,-
Outlast® technology was originally developed for NASA to protect
astronauts from extreme temperature fluctuations.Functionalities:
Highlights:Hidden zipper garage.YKK™ zipper.Breast pocket.Elasticized, adjustable arm openings.4 way stretch.Two side pockets.Adjustable waist from inside of the side pockets.Enlarged back piece.
Boogie™ features a soft perspiration transporting lining which
makes it functional with additional underlying clothing layers.
The Outlast® difference
Boogie™ continuously interacts with the unique microclimate of your body and the environment to moderate temperature from being too hot or too cold to being just right.
The human body naturally sweats to cool the skin, reducing the ability of the clothing, to keep the body dry and comfortable. Outlast® technology, conversely, will keep individuals comfortable by absorbing body heat when too much is created, thereby diminishing the amount of moisture during outdoor activities.
Under the microscope:
Outlast® Adaptive Comfort products all contain patented Outlast® Thermocules™ phase change materials (PCM). The microcapsules are microscopic in size: 1,000s fit on a head of a pin (3 million per cm²).
Infrared pictures can clearly demonstrate how Outlast® Adaptive Comfort® materials work.
Due to basic physical laws, all bodies (humans, plants, objects) release energy in terms of thermal radiation. The higher the object’s temperature is, the more intensive the infrared radiation released.
A test was done with a pair of gloves. One glove was equipped with and the other one without Outlast® material. Each gloved hand was then laid on an ice block for five minutes.
The test illustrates how temperature changes can be reduced remarkably with Outlast® products.

We can’t promise that Outlast® Adaptive Comfort® products are the missing link to help you turn pro, but we can at least make anything you do poorly a much more comfortable experience.
By storing your excess heat as it’s created and releasing it as it’s needed, you won’t be too hot or too cold...just comfortable.
