SUSAN BUTCHER, IDITAROD CHAMP, TEAMS UP WITH TRANSPORT PORT CHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine trekking
across 1,159 frozen Alaskan miles while tackling a wind chill factor of -80 degrees. If you are shivering now, imagine doing this grueling undertaking for almost twelve consecutive days. Most of us would not opt to save our vacation money for such an event, however, Susan Butcher does this for a living. This champion sled dog racer has made a career out of conquering nature's toughest elements with the help of her team of 20 huskies and a whole lot of true grit.
Under these extreme, expeditious circumstances, Susan can't question the performance of her gear, especially her underwear. This is precisely why she selected Terramar Sports' innovative TRANSPORT as the layer closest to her skin in order to protect her from these sub-zero conditions. High performance Transport(R) push/pull fabric is the result of a patented knitting process which combines Dermalene(TM) polyester and Hydrofil(R) nylon from Allied Signal, in a 2-sided tricomponent construction with Lycra(R)/Spandex added for stretch. The result is superior wicking and unsurpassed dryness, warmth and comfort. TRANSPORT carries the responsibility of keeing Susan dry allowing her to maintain her crucial body heat. "I raced in Terramar's TRANSPORT last year and it kept me dry, warm and comfortable; allowing me to focus on my goal and not on controlling my shivering," stated Susan Butcher. Being such a demanding user of high performance apparel, Susan with her husband, were featured on a PBS special focusing on cold weather gear last January. Both she and her husband are planning on racing in several long distance events this year, so keep your ear warmers on and look for them in the headlines. -0- 2/20/93 /CONTACT: Nancy Fendler or Deidre Oliver of Terramar Sports, 207-761-8005, or night, 207-773-9070/
