The main purpose of TLG hoodie (or hoody) is to provide warmth in moderate cold weather or com- bined with other layers offered by Carinthia. We have already featured couple of their products in the past issues of the Frag Out! Magazine, but none of them looks like TLG. What makes the TLG totally different from ear- lier jackets is the new Carinthia ISO Mapping Technology where different areas of the jacket fea- ture different types of G-LOFT synthetic insulation for better comfort and performance outdoors. The human body has multiple zones with completely different thermal properties. Some regions of body are getting warmer quicker than other and in some parts your body loose temperature faster. This was base for ISO Mapping Technology. Carinthia's de- signers decided to use two types of their proprietary G-LOFT insulation in TLG Jacket for better protec- tion against cold but still providing great ratio between warmth and weight. The G-LOFT STi (Stable Insulation) features bi-component blend of extremely fine synthetic micro-fibers with memory effect and special low-melt fibers for smallest pos- sible size. The extremely hollow fiber causes a dras- tic reduction in specific weight and optimal thermal insulation. The 40 g/sqm G-LOFT STi was used in the upper body of the TLG Jacket: chest, shoulders, sleeves and upper back. It does not move during the use. The G-LOFT Ci (Compact Insulation) shares simi- lar construction as the G-LOFT STi but offers more compact insulation. TLG features 30 g/sqm of insu- lation. It was used in the bottom front and bottom back areas of the jacket. These zones are clearly visible on the inside of the jacket. The G-LOFT Ci is placed in horizontal quilt- ed parts of the TLG and the STi is placed in hexa- gon shaped quilting. Outer shell of jacket is plain lightweight nylon fabric with smooth face coated with durable water repellent for some resistance against rain. Jacket is lined with very thin and smooth nylon
