|Hilltrek introduce a new concept in waterproof outdoor clothing - Cotton Analogy® |
Cotton Analogy® is a new concept in waterproof outdoor clothing designed for use in outdoor activities where toughness and high breathablity are important, such as field sports, game conservancy, bushcraft and outdoor photography.
Cotton Analogy® functions in a similar way to Nikwax Analogy®, well proven by Páramo in their highly successful range of Directional Waterproofs, by mimicking animal fur in providing both insulation and water-shedding.
Cotton Analogy® combines a robust cotton Ventile® outer with a synthetic inner Nikwax Analogy® Pump Liner which pushes liquid outwards to keep you warm and dry inside.
Field tested in the mountains, forests and moors of the North of Scotland, Cotton Analogy® Waterproofs have been subjected to the extremes of weather in activities which require the comfort of high breathability and a robust outer layer.
Two Jackets have been introduced Assynt Jacket retailing at £285 including VATand the Foinaven Smock retailing at £195 including VAT
All Cotton Analogy® Waterproof Clothing has been approved by Nikwax Fabrics and have also attained stringent standards - a minimum four hour resistance to 3cm of rain per hour - tested in the independent Leeds University Rain Room.
All Cotton Analogy® outdoor clothing is available off the shelf and Made To Measure.

|Hilltrek secure coveted Nikwax Analogy® Waterproof Licence|
We have recently secured a licence from Nikwax Directional Textiles to use Nikwax Analogy® fabric in a range of 'Made To Measure' garments for outdoor activities.
The first garment, the Lomond Walking Jacket, is now available and the company aims to offer walking trousers, children's clothing and country sports clothing in Nikwax Analogy® fabric in the near future.
We have had a long association with Nikwax, having been a Páramo retailer for many years in the retail side of our business. The new service will complement the extensive Páramo range offered through our retail outlet and on-line website.
Nikwax Analogy® fabric was developed by Nikwax Managing Director Nick Brown, one of eight Directional Textiles engineered by Nikwax for use in high performance clothing, and is used by Páramo in their highly successful range of Directional Waterproofs. It got its name because of the way it mimics animal fur in providing both insulation and water-shedding which works in all temperature and humidity conditions. In the same way that seal, otters and bears keep warm in very wet conditions, the Nikwax Analogy® Pump Liner pushes liquid outwards to keep you warm and dry inside.
All garments bearing the Nikwax Analogy® badge have attained stringent standards - a minimum four hour resistance to 3cm of rain per hour - tested in the independent Leeds University Rain Room.
