Clothing

The 3 or 4 season suits are undoubtedly the best solutions but not all of them have the same characteristics and quality as the models of Clover. The Laminator 2WP, which we have personally tested in the Negev desert, is confirmed as the best choice for those looking for an all-rounder that is comfortable and protective.

Duratek (laminate) outer fabric makes jacket and pants resistenti all'acqua without the need to wear a rain suit. The inner layer, on the other hand, is made up of a synthetic duvet which maintains body heat when temperatures drop, and once removed it becomes an elegant and comfortable garment individually wearable.
