KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is adidas ClimaProof. Living up to its name, adidas ClimaProof is designed to provide breathable weather protection in wind, rain, and snow conditions. adidas ClimaProof is available in a range of products including running and golf jackets, boots, and backpacks. If you're planning on taking part in outdoor activities this winter, you'll want to add adidas ClimaProof to your essentials list.

What is it? adidas ClimaProof is a weather protection technology that helps to optimize the body's temperature and shield against harsh wind, rain, storms, and snow. Although it provides a warm, protective barrier from the elements, adidas ClimaProof is also breathable and allows moisture to easily escape.

How does it work? adidas ClimaProof products are built to withstand the harshest of winter conditions. The treated shell acts as a barrier against cold weather while allowing heat and sweat to escape and eventually evaporate on the surface.

Notable products: adidas Supernova Gore Jacket, adidas Response 3-Stripes Windbreaker, adidas GSG-9.2 High Boot, adidas Winter ColdFusion Jacket

Bottom line: Whether you're caught in high winds or a full-on snow storm, adidas ClimaProof is designed to withstand winter's toughest challenges.
