“The thermal wear was an outstanding success on my trip to Iceland. When we arrived in Reykjavik on Sunday morning, the wind was blowing, there was sleet and the temperature was hovering around freezing. I was wearing a pair of slacks, a long-sleeve shirt and a light down jacket. Obviously, that was totally underdressed as far as protective wear is concerned and the cold bit right through my ‘Houston clothing’. Once we arrived at our hotel, I donned the full outfit without the headgear and we went on tour. Just stepping out into the weather the second time, wearing a pair of jeans, flannel long-sleeved shirt and the complete thermal wear, I braced myself for the cold, but it was not to be. The thermal wear provided the protection you warranted. I was quite comfortable. The light down jacket I wore was a very thin jacket that you could almost see through was nothing like the heavy ski jackets that we took on the trip. The heavy ski jackets and ski pants never got unpacked once we saw how effective the Diamondown was. While the temperature never fell below freezing, the wind chill and drizzle, certainly brought the temperatures close or below freezing. We visited glaciers, frozen bays, iceberg bays, and the Atlantic seaside with glacier ice floating in it along with frozen waterfalls and hot springs. We kept the Diamondown on for the entire one-week trip. I rarely used the gloves, except in some short times because they were so effective, that my hands got too hot and certainly one the gloves were used as an inner liner for my ski gloves, I could only use them for a few minutes before the ski gloves had to come off. My wife, who does not like to wear socks, wore the Diamondown socks for the duration of the one week trip and was quite pleased as she admitted, “Well, for socks, they are pretty good.” And that is really high complement as to how effective the thermal wear was. As with most women, her feet are always cold, but not so on this trip. She is a believer”.
