K-Cap is a balaclava designed especially for high altitude use.
It is being developed as part of a project for the design and development of specialized clothing equipment to be used during a scientific expedition on Mt. Everest. The balaclava has come to symbolize a new concept of protective clothing. The innovation in the materials used and the design itself makes this an example of how even an old object such as this can be made new.
It consists firstly of a memory membrane fabric, which modifies its physical structure according to variations in temperature, copying the behaviour of the human skin. Secondly, it has two layers of bielastic fabric that render the structure active, allowing complete freedom of movement. This item is thus technologically very advanced and extremely comfortable to wear.
