ThermoCore™ Active Cooling Technology
The ThermoCore™ Active Cooling Technology powering our cooling gear leverages a decade of research and development with the U.S. Department of Defense to develop new active cooling materials for extreme climates. Extensive research, development, and military spec testing was conducted to develop a highly durable thermally conductive polymer technology that powers our shirts and packs.
Made to support high-exertion activities, our active cooling systems were tested and refined by feedback from professional triathletes and avid hikers in Hawaii's hottest and most demanding environments. In controlled laboratory testing, ThermoCore achieved 3X the heat extraction of other wearable cooling products.
19°N - Our Story
The idea for 19°N was born out of our need for a new breed of outdoor gear in a rapidly changing climate.
Our climate is hot and getting hotter, and 2021 was a year of new records. From the "Heat Dome" over the Pacific Northwest to temperature records being shattered across the world, the Earth's climate is entering a new phase of extreme heat. At 19°N we realized that it’s going to take more than a sun hat and wicking t-shirt to survive outside. To do the things we love outside year round, we need a new breed of gear.
The 19°N team is based in Honolulu, Hawaii, an outdoor adventure wonderland and home to the legendary Kona Iron Man race. At 19°N we are a group of scientists, engineers, designers, and outdoor enthusiasts driven to create, innovate, and recreate. We believe in the balance between work and play and believe that technology has the power to make magic real and that the great outdoors transforms us into better people. We bring the two together to help everyone love the outdoors as much as we do.
