Shinesty & brrr° Are Keeping the Boys Cool

Premium underwear brand Shinesty is keeping the boys cool with a new line of men’s undergarments made with brrr° cooling fabric.

Shinesty’s new line of cooling boxers are made with brrr° cooling fabric, which has natural cooling minerals, active wicking, and rapid drying to draw heat and moisture away from the skin all day long.

Boulder, Colorado-based Shinesty was founded by three friends who wanted to bring an irreverent party vibe and creative themes to the undergarment and apparel industry through an anything-but-subtle approach to branding and marketing.

Shinesty has since become known for its elevated designs, superior materials like brrr° cooling fabric, and premium offerings like a build-your-own pack where you can mix and match styles and prints.

They also offer subscription boxes for men, women, and couples, as well as T-shirts, swimsuits, adult onesies, overall-style pajamaralls, robes, novelty holiday sweaters, and other apparel items.


Forloh's "Partners in Innovation" Article on brrrº Partnership

How FORLOH and brrr° are Working Together to Create Cutting-Edge “Made in America” Hunting Gear.

When Andy Techmanski started FORLOH in early 2020, he did it because he wanted to make the best possible hunting gear and clothing, and do it exclusively in America. Moreover, he wanted to redefine what was possible for hunting garments, so he and his team thought outside the box and looked for other like-minded innovation partners who were committed to the “100% Made in America” mission.

One of those individuals was Mary-Cathryn Kolb, founder & CEO of the innovative, self-cooling fabric, brrr°. Kolb leveraged her decades of experience in the garment industry, to unlock a patented cooling fabric technology.

Where Did the Idea for brrr° Begin?

“The idea for brrr° started about a decade ago when I was a sales executive at Spanx,” Kolb said. “I was intrigued by how these tiny little fibers could work so hard to stretch and support our bodies, and I started to think: ‘What else could they do? What if they could actually keep us cooler? What if they could draw heat and moisture away from our skin?’ And the idea for brrr° was born.”

Still, there’s a difference between an idea and a viable product. So when Kolb saw how much potential there was for this product, she quickly took steps to make her idea a reality.

“I did a lot of research and discovered that there really hadn’t been very many advances in ‘cooling’ fabric in 20 years!” she said. “Some brands claim that they are cooling, but they’re really just good at wicking. They don’t actually remove heat. So we knew we had to do something very innovative if we wanted to shake up the industry. I quit my day job and raised some seed capital and began working on R&D for brrr°.”

Kolb notes that there was a lot of trial and error to perfect brrr°.

“We worked on brrr° for years,” she said. “There were dozens of formulas we considered, and we kept testing and iterating and tweaking the formula, until we got it just right. Our teams in Taiwan and the U.S. ran tests on more than 1,000 kgs of yarn, which is almost as heavy as some cars. So it was a pretty big effort”

How Does brrr° Technology Work?

So how does it work? Kolb explained that brrr° combines three important elements: natural cooling minerals, active wicking and rapid drying.

“Together they create something we call the ‘Triple Chill Effect’ that instantly draws heat and moisture away from your skin, and keeps doing that the longer you wear it,” she said. “When you lay brrr° fabric against your skin, you can actually feel how cool it is. That’s a big differentiator in stores when people can touch it and feel the difference.”

People notice innovation, especially if they can feel the difference. That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to partner with them and use their all-new brrr° PRO technology in several of our new apparel lines.

“brrr° Pro is our most advanced cooling technology yet,” said Kolb. “It’s more intense cooling, and it uses micro cooling minerals that intensify the cooling sensation. There’s also hyper wicking and performance drying. These three technologies work together to deliver performance-level advanced cooling.

“We recently tested it on a device called a Manikin to mimic the performance of a human. Those tests showed that it continues to cool you off more when you wear it for a longer period of time, which is really important for hunters, anglers and anyone who spends time outdoors.”

Like FORLOH, brrr° takes great pride in its final product, sending each garment through rigorous QA processes, including lab testing every piece of brrr° fabric.

“We run every fabric through rigorous testing with independent globally respected third-party labs, and we test against other competing brands in the market to prove that brrr° outperforms,” Kolb said.

As both FORLOH and brrr° continue their growth, Kolb is eager to see what the future holds, especially given shifting trends in consumer shopping.

As both FORLOH and brrr° continue their growth, Kolb is eager to see what the future holds.

“Consumers have gotten used to wearing more comfortable and casual clothes while they’ve been working from home, and they don’t want to give up that comfort when they go back to the office or transition to hybrid office/remote work,” Kolb observed. “Retailers are working hard to respond and rethink their designs, cuts, fabrics and features — and we think brrr° is in a great position to meet those needs and deliver superior cooling comfort.”

FORLOH is ready to help deliver that comfort. To check out our apparel featuring the brrr° PRO cooling technology, see them here.

FORLOH Redefines Outdoor Comfort

Hunters, anglers, and other outdoor enthusiasts have a new option for technically advanced apparel that’s all about function and comfort.

FORLOH has introduced a new line of technical long-sleeve hoodies for men made with brrr° Pro advanced performance cooling fabric technology. The hoodies will be available for women and youth soon.

In the coming months, FORLOH will introduce lightweight pants, shorts, board shorts, cargo shorts, women’s leggings, and numerous other garments made with brrr° Pro.

brrr° Pro has enhanced cooling fibers embedded with micro cooling minerals that intensify the concentration of the cooling sensation. Hyper wicking amplifies moisture removal, and performance drying delivers a fresh and cool experience.

FORLOH, whose name was inspired by the phrase “For Love of Hunting,” was founded by a group of hunters and anglers who wanted technically advanced apparel that was well-designed and manufactured entirely in America to create domestic jobs and improve speed to market. 

That allows the company to bring new items of clothing to consumers in as little as 10-12 weeks, compared with 10 months or more for most retailers who use an offshore supply chain. FORLOH sells directly to consumers through its website and through its flagship retail store in Whitefish, Montana.

FORLOH is passionate about scientific advancements in apparel. The company created its own unique science-based camouflage patterns for different environments such as timberland and forest; snow; open country or mountain; and water. 

FORLOH develops new fabrics in partnership with other brands that are leaders in their space, such as Airadigm for microventing pulse plasma technology; Activ-dry Down to repel water and reduce moisture absorption; Polygiene Stay Fresh Technology to inhibit the growth of odor causing bacteria; Polygiene Odor Crunch silica to break down odor molecules; Trizar for heat regulation; and brrr° Pro for performance cooling fabric.

FORLOH also develops its own technology such as Perf-Weld micro-perforations in the Sonic Weld construction for breathability. 

The apparel collections by FORLOH are meant to be layered and combined for maximum flexibility and ultimate comfort, breathability and weather protection.

The company is dedicated to helping consumers get more deeply connected to nature by spending more time outdoors. FORLOH believes that hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, and other outdoor activities are more than just a way of life — it’s a way to share values such as a respect for nature from one generation to another. 

brrr° is proud to partner with FORLOH to bring technical cooling performance to outdoor apparel.
