Feel like you’re #winning a marathon everyday with this new sportswear line. Larchmont-based 13- one creates athletic jackets that incorporate the same NASA technology that Heatsheets use to keep runners warm at the end of their race.
Owner Hema Nambiar decided to combine her love for running and the technology of Heatsheets.
After recovering from two huge surgeries to fix a collapsed lung, she decided to run her first half marathon to celebrate.
“The name [of the company] comes from the number of miles in half a marathon, 13.1. I ran a few half marathons and got wrapped in silver Heatsheets after the race. I fell in love with this technology. I decided having a fabric with this technology would be very useful and friendlier to the environment,” Nambiar says.
13-one jackets retain up to 90% of your body heat. Even if you’re not an athlete this jacket will keep you warm and looking cool, plus they’re extremely packable for those that want to travel light.
The 13-one line offers 3 versatile options: the windbreaker, the full zip, and the trench coat.
