Titan is Saturn’s largest moon. And one day it could be our next home. It comes with an atmosphere 4x thicker than Earth’s, and it’s only the second body in our Solar System known to have liquid on its surface – we live on the other one. So just like the Moon and Mars it has potential. However, Titan is cryogenically cold. With average surface temperatures of -179°C, it’s twice as cold as anything recorded on Earth. It also has methane monsoons and cryovolcanoes spewing out jets of freezing hydrocarbon rain.

As we continue to build clothing for planet Earth and beyond, embracing the challenges of Titan forces us to push the technological boundaries of extreme cold weather clothing. And it’s why our Titan Fleece Jacket is the only fleece on Earth – or Titan – that gets stronger as the weather gets colder. It combines an ultra-warm fleece on the inside with the strongest fibre in the world on the outside. It even has a magnetic zip with an emergency pull cord for blizzards.

Built for the cryogenically cold temperatures of space

While fleece jackets are brilliant at keeping you warm, they’re definitely not known for their strength. Most simply rip or shred apart on the first sign of any kind of impact. But by building our new Titan Fleece Jacket for the cryogenically cold temperatures of space, we’ve completely reinvented what a fleece can do here on Earth. It’s not only the strongest and warmest fleece on any planet, but it actually gets stronger as the weather gets colder.

By building the Titan Fleece Jacket for the cryogenically cold temperatures of space, we’ve completely reinvented what a fleece can do here on Earth.

We re-engineered Dyneema in Germany

Our mission to turn the world’s toughest fibre into the world’s warmest fleece took us to Germany, the land of engineering. To make soft fabric you need really thin fibres. So we took bundles of Dyneema fibres and heated them up, stretched them out and broke them over and over again to make them as thin as possible. We then spun these ultra-thin fibres into a yarn with a small amount of polyester and elastane on a circular knitting machine. The result is a Dyneema fleece with a 3 dimensional honeycomb structure that’s unlike anything ever seen before.

It will survive a high speed fall and drag on concrete

The Darmstadt abrasion resistance test is normally used to assess the durability of motorcycle gear by recreating high speed falls onto concrete. Three samples of the fleece’s material are attached to a machine with mechanical rotating arms which hover over a slab of rough concrete. The arms then start spinning as they approach the slab, simulating a high speed fall and 30 metre drag, by slamming the material into the concrete. Whereas most fleeces would simply shred on the first impact, our material easily passes with the machine rotating at 265rpm, which is equivalent to a 45kmph fall and drag.

A magnetic front zipper built for speed

No one has been to Titan yet. But we’re assuming you won’t want to be fumbling around with zippers when you're being battered by a space blizzard. That’s why the Titan Fleece Jacket has been designed to be opened and closed while wearing thick padded gloves. The front zipper is magnetic, so it’s quick and easy to engage and fasten. The heavy-duty zip base automatically aligns itself with magnets, so the teeth lock into place by themselves. And a custom oversized pull cord lets you do the jacket up one-handed.
