North End® Introduces Three New UTK Technologies

North End® is an affordable, high-tech clothing brand that was first introduced by Ash City in the late 1990s. For the past 20 years, the corporate and performance-driven styles under the North End name have provided comfort and performance for professionals.

Many North End products are laboratory tested using the Unique Thermal Komfort (UTK) temperature rating system. These technologies help customers identify styles best suited for their needs. We’ve enhanced our products by adding three new UTK technologies.

Those three new technologies can be broken down into the following categories:

UTK CeramiTech™

UTK CeramiTech surface reacts with the body by absorbing and retaining body heat to keep the wearer warm. As a result, this technology is a great fit for the active user.

UTK SubDown™

It’s warmth without the weight. UTK SubDown is an easy-care material that mimics the thermal qualities of down without the thick uncomfortable layers. As a result, our UTK SubDown products are lightweight with thermal retention of 600 fill down.

UTK Hydropel™

Stay dry in the elements. UTK Hydropel adds superior water-repellent functionality to fabrics. Therefore, it provides the ultimate comfort in wet conditions.
