FYI: Here are the answers to some questions you may have:
Are pigments dangerous to humans?
No, the pigments are natural, non-toxic, non-radioactive and heavy metals content is twenty times lower than the limit imposed by the stringent U.S. regulations.
How long do the photoluminescent products last?
The physical principle of photo-luminescence is eternal. By laboratory testing, we can say that after 10 years, the photoluminescent pigment does not degrade at all. The photoluminescence will last as long as the jacket itself.
How should I recycle a photoluminescent product?
Due to its very low content of heavy metals and small amount of pigment gener- ally used in applications, photoluminescent products can be recycled according to the support that hosts them (paper, plastic, wood, undifferentiated).
Can I charge photoluminescent objects with artificial light?
Of course, the photoluminescent effect can be obtained also with a normal light bulb, provided that this also emits a minimum amount of light in the excitation spectrum of pigment. Normally energy saving incandescent bulbs, neon tubes and light bulbs achieve a decent result, as long they are exposed for about 10-15 minutes.
What is the best way to charge the pigments and obtain the maximum effect of photoluminescence?
The best method and also the least expensive to charge the pigments is to expose them to natural sunlight for about one minute. The emission spectrum of the sun is the most complete and the best for our pigments.
How long does the photoluminescence last?
Please note that each light source is more powerful than the light provided by photoluminescence. The photoluminescent effect duration is equal to approx imately 8 hours and is only visible in complete darkness. During the first 10-15 minutes, the light provided is the brightest then it begins to subside, and then stabilize at a less intense level for about 7 hours, always being visible

On Nov 10, 2013, Outwet made its debut at retail in Canada, at the 25th anniversary of Dornellas Bike Shop, Dornellas is one of the most well known bikes shops in Canada, and is owned by Eon Dornellas, 3 time Olympian, and Canadian National Road Race Champion in 1986
Dornellas was chosen for the launch of Outwet in Canada because of Eon's continuous and unwavering dedication and passion to the sport of Cycling.
Dornellas will have a large display of Outwet for sale at the Toronto International Bike Show Feb 28 - Mar 2, 2013, so come down and try them out. I will be there to explain all the benefits of the line. Once you've worn Outwet, you won't wear anything else.
On June 11th, 2013 Peter Oyler's epic adventure, the Race Across America ( RAAM ) began, He had been here twice before in 2007 (Finisher) but in 2009 ended up in hospital in 2009, unable to finish the Race.
But this year was different, A specialized crew, lots of sweat box training and 1000's and 1000's of km's of riding and a GOAL. Finish the race in 10 days. Pete had done everything right in his preparation, but never had he been this mentally prepared for the race. 4677.9 km's (2962 miles) and 170,000 vertical feet of climbing between him and the finish in a course stretching from Oceanside, California to Annapolis Maryland
Controlling core body temperature is vital when you span temperature ranging from 40 - 113 deg. F all in one single descent. Add pouring rain, gale force winds and dust storms to the mix and you get just a little bit of the flavour of this race. Now try riding for 22 hrs a day on less than 1.5 hrs of sleep each day. This is the hardest bike race in the World ( It ain't no Tour )
I could go on for hrs writing about my experience as a member of his crew, but that is not what this race was about. It was all about getting Pete to the finish line in under 11 days.
One of the major contributors to that was the Technical base layers that Pete relied on to keep his core temperature as even as possible through the race. Enter OUTWET High Technical performance wear.
Here is what Pete had to say about OUTWET
"As a two time RAAM finisher, I know comfort in clothing, and even more importantly base layers of clothing. I have tried many different base layer options over the years. Using Outwet for this season has been a great change. The system of one size basically fits all and the great comfort made my RAAM race much better then other races. Dealing with the various natural elements in one race lasting several days requires the right product. The Outwet line of product covers the body with the right pieces based on the various temperatures and rainy conditions that were present in RAAM.
Outwet's versatility allows riders to cover any distance and be cool or warm, dry and comfortable. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. Thanks Outwet for helping me complete RAAM making a great product that can be used by cyclists, skiers or anyone for that matter in the great outdoors!"
Well done Peter it was an honour to be part of your crew
