Thermore® Launches Opera® Wind-, Water-Resistant Insulation

Milan-based Thermore S.p.A., a manufacturer of thermal insulation, now offers Thermore® Opera®, an Open-PERformance-Architecture apparel protection system comprising the company’s specially formulated insulation bonded with a breathable, ultralightweight, water-resistant, windproof membrane.

According to the company, the Opera system can be used with virtually any type of shell fabric and does not alter the fabric’s hand or add noticeable bulk to the garment.

“My customers keep telling me how excited they are to finally have an all-in-one performance story on practically any type of shell fabric — even with knits,” said Cheryl Wright, Thermore’s US sales representative, based in Cornelius, N.C. “The other key feature seems to be Opera’s softness factor. Product developers are impressed with its softness and drape.”
