How stretch material incorporated into belts helps to maintain comfort throughout the day.
Being comfortable is a big part of getting thru the day. While cotton and other stretch materials as well as breathable fabrics and other functional materials help us to maintain comfortable body temperatures and prevent hugging and rubbing and provide us with less restriction, there is something to be said particularly about stretch fabric. In the past several years, this technology has been used in belts and I for one bought my first stretch belt at an outdoors shop over 10 years ago. Now its even more prevalent. Some idea of using stretch materials in Alpenlore Belts has recently been considered as well as stretch rope. Our current belts have zero flexibility, are quite rigid but for good reason. Experimenting with some new material will reinvent our belts into a new realm of usefulness and add function where before was limited. We are excited to create some prototypes over the course of this year and hopefully have several new belt options for those of you who are looking for something different and unique.
