Bhutan. Where is Bhutan

Latitude15 is heading to Bhutan again on a trek of several weeks with two Vermonters and two Londoners whom we know.  Bhutan is a Constitutional monarchy and is located in the Himalayas between India and China.  Their economy is great being host to a new large hydroelectric facility.  The capital of Bhutan is Thimphu.  The mountains range up to 7000 meters.  Trekking in the Himalayas requires very adaptive clothing and Latitude 15 just fits the bill providing light weight warmth both night and day.  Spring is relatively warm during the day but nights are quite cold still.  So having a Latitude 15 “Beanie” along is good medicine to wear in your sleeping bag at night.  Our friends wear Latitude15 shirts pretty much through the entire trip as the shirt develops no odor over several weeks of wear,so if they run into the King in Thimphu  they will be well received.  Latitude15 is also a great shirt to wear on the plane getting to Bhutan as it keeps you comfortable whether the plane is over warm or too cold.  In addition, the silver fiber by it’s anti-static and anti-microbial features keeps the “germs” off you.  You do not want to start a long trek over several weeks feeling lousy from the plane ride.  Make sure you have safe and comfortable journeys by wearing Latitude15.  It will enhance your experience!

ALPACA-1
A patented, intimate blend of synthetic and natural fibers that accelerates the water release rate of wet fabric. It is set apart from other moisture management products because of its faster drying time, the aesthetics imparted by its natural fiber component and its permanently built-in odor eliminator, FreshGuard®.

We've chosen Dri-release for the inside of the shirt because of its multiple comfort and protection features - features that appeal to the extreme sports aficionados targeted by Latitude 15 including skiers, trekkers, climbers, sky jumpers, big game hunters and the like that often find themselves among the elements for hours or days at a time.

"I was so glad to have my Latitude15 shirt with me. It turned out to be the favorite piece of clothing I had with me and so I ended up wearing it for the most of the trip. The level of comfort it provides in an extreme outdoor environment is amazing and its ability to keep your body "climate controlled" is absolutely unmatched by other materials like fleece or cotton. I can only say: Don't leave home without it!"
