How’s your carbon footprint anyway?


How’s your carbon footprint.   Oil may be going down, but the price does not yet reflect a safety margin for getting through January to end of April in Vermont where the cost of comfortable heating begins to pinch.   We suggest that you can have the comfort to which you have become accustomed by modifying your wardrobe a bit.  Including Latitude15 clothing – shirts, socks, and beanie caps can do this for you and in the meanwhile, allowing you to turn the thermostat down quite a bit.  How much is quite a bit?  Say 10 degrees out loud.   You can wear all of these garments comfortably in bed also.  The silver lining in the socks will help you to sleep more deeply and you will say “ahhh!” as you lay down for your winter nap.   Enjoy the changes in your life.  You will be better off for them.   For now, cheers for the rest of the summer and I predict a dry and beautiful fall. Stay tuned.

Best wishes,

Bob Hardy

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!"
