How To Wear
The patented Fortress winter clothes and workwear technology provides 3 uniquely significant benefits:
1- Keeps you warm when wet.
2- Provides an unusually large comfort spectrum based on model.
3- Is lightweight, as all of the insulated Fortress winter clothes and garments utilize the AERIS™ insulation, which has naturally occurring air pockets, providing a greater weight disbursement.
Individuals will choose different wearing patterns. All of our base and mid-layer garments perform best when worn close to the skin. Individual preferences may dictate.
You may, but typically performance of our patented winter clothes is diminished as you add layers underneath.
Our Classic pant & jacket lines are designed to be worn with an outershell. Your choice, from a sweatshirt to a waterproof shell.
Perspiration is the largest contributor to COLD in the outdoors, but we’ve solved this problem! Stay active and your body heat will drive the moisture away from your body. Warm & wet simultaneously; the NEW SCIENCE!
Ventilate! Unzip and ventilate.
All Fortress winter clothes items are machine washable. We suggest washing in cold water and HANG DRY as the preferred method.
You can, but they are SOCKS, designed for home use or as a boot liner (in larger boots).
The ‘Slits’, when combined with the double zipper allow you to wear the jacket and sit without the discomfort of a bulging chest area.
Specifically designed as a mid-layer, when wearing an outer shell, your neck isn’t locked with 2 layers of collars.
Nope, our mittens are built for warmth, and can be used recreationally
Both are equally warm, with AERIS™ 500 insulation, but the Rugged mittens include a slipknot fabric in the palm and wrist cuffs & adjustment.
Breathability! Fortress has redefined breathability! We try to explain, but once you own it, it becomes self-evident!
