The synergistic technology developed by Hillman combines the best functionalities of two or more materials, achieving exponentially higher results than each material used separately. For example, we use bamboo fiber as the most efficient moisture absorber and merino wool as the most efficient wicking fiber.
In comparison, we can't reach such a high-efficiency level for moisture absorption and wick by using the materials separately.
What happens if the clothing is made only of Merino wool?
Even when we use its best quality of 15.5 microns, the Merino wool structure is coarse and can only absorb 30% of its weight in moisture. Nevertheless, it stands out as the most effective moisture-wicking material on Earth.
What happens if the clothing is made only of Bamboo viscose?
Bamboo viscose is a natural antibacterial hollow fiber that absorbs moisture three times its weight, three times faster than cotton, and ten times better than wool. It can wick moisture faster than cotton but is less efficient than wool.
For example, bamboo will absorb your sweat much quicker than any other material, but you will still develop sweat spots, which will be fewer than cotton but still exist.
Also, bamboo fiber provides a silk-like, gentle feeling when in contact with the skin. It also allows heavy brushing for superior air trapping, better insolation, and a gentle fleecy feel.
The Final Result
Using natural chemical-free bamboo fiber as the best moisture absorber and the World’s finest possible grade 15.5-micron Australian merino wool as the best moisture-wicking layer, we have exponentially higher moisture management and thermoregulation efficiency than any other material on Earth. By using the finest grades of materials, the gentle and cozy, itch-free, super functional fabric is now a reality. The plus is that both fibers are naturally antibacterial and anti-odor, making them the best synergy of natural fibers for hunting clothing ever.
For use as the most efficient and technically advanced middle layer for hunting or as an outer hoodie for warmer weather.
Made to eliminate human odor through the natural anti-bacterial "self-cleaning" properties of both merino wool, bamboo viscose and anti-odor threads.
Created to provide the most comfortable climate control and to keep you warm when cold and cool when hot.
Provides perfect thermoregulation during hunting at moderately low temperatures:
from 41°F (5°C) to 59°F (15°C)
as an outer layer over the base layer
from 41°F (5°C) down to -22°F (-30°C)
as mid-layer in combination with other layers
We selected the finest Australian merino yarn and treated it by the German Südwolle plant. We developed a sandwich-like construction with a layer of the finest bamboo fiber. Then we brushed the bamboo to have all-natural air-trapping fleece next to the skin.
We have added a body zone system of a thinner fabric in the armpits area and denser in the areas where more heat is needed. We have made the boards under the armpit without seams for optimum comfort and lack of fabric in which bacteria develop, namely the seam threads. We have integrated the half-glove feature to protect the outside of your hands from the cold. We designed the model with an ergonomic cut, and a deep front zipper for optimal ventilation and added a phone pocket of a laser-cut opening. The precise flatlock stitching, as well as zippers by world leader YKK guarantee the flawless quality of the product in every detail.
If you want to wear the world's proven finest fabric made from the finest filament with unique functionality, trust Hillman and reward your body with a MERINO THERMAL TOP with no industry equivalent – we guarantee it!
the power of anti-odor and anti-bacterial threads
Even if the material is antibacterial, the odor buildup in the underarm threads will always occur if the threads are not treated. This is why we used the one-of-a-kind CoatsProtect® threads to sew our hoodie and achieve the maximum level of odor elimination.
Designed with seamless shoulder yokes, the hoodie will bring extra comfort when carrying a backpack or rifle.
It doesn’t matter if you will wear this hoodie for hunting, hiking, or your daily life; we guarantee top performance, the highest level of comfort, and superb odor control.
Now get the best and most efficient premium hunting midlayer built with the finest materials on Earth that will bring a new level of perfection and definitely enhance your comfort and hunting efficiency.
Before we made our own, we used to buy all other products out there, all the while wanting different, better clothes to keep us warm in winter and cool in summer. But we still got cold, wet or clammy, not to mention that we’d stink more often than not. After years of research, we were led to an old favorite of our grandparents — wool. It helped keep us warm all winter and remarkably cool in the summer, without the stink. However, that wool wasn’t very comfortable. Then we discovered Merino wool and our world was changed forever.
