Japanese brand Mizuno recently began to globally promote their Breath Thermo fiber in a variety of apparel products, including baselayers, arm warmers, socks, leggings and gloves. It’s been a long-time coming for what appears to be an incredibly effective concept for heat-generation in clothing. The Mizuno brand has always meant athletic shoes to me, being my turf shoe of choice for years. Given a mid-weight baselayer featuring the Breath Thermo fiber at ISPO, I am now a huge fan of their apparel line as well.
