Moisture-wicking! Everyone and their dog are now adding this tag to their workout gear, and to some degree if it’s made from polyester then there is some truth in what they state. Polyester will absorb only 0.4% of it’s weight in water, in comparison cotton is 7%. In bygone times that was all fine and well, however, we now find ourselves in an age of ‘small percentage gains’. In the last 20 years or so, the global sportswear manufacturers have been battling each other in a bid have the best performing fibres and fabric able to rapidly transport moisture away from the body surface, for the equation is simple – you stay dry, you feel better and your performance improves.
Apexgray are constantly striving to source the best fabrics from the world’s best and most trusted manufacturer’s.
The Techfit sports vest-top possesses clean lines, a tailored fit together with night-glow logo’s front and rear, however, it’s secret is in the fabric – COOLMAX®.
What is COOLMAX®?
Developed by the innovator’s at Invista, a global manufacturer with 25 years pedigree, the core to this technology is the design of the specialised fibre cross-sections. These have been engineered to quickly channel moisture away from the body to the increased surface area of the fabric. This allows for optimum moisture evaporation resulting in highly efficient cooling and quick-drying when we’re hot and sweaty. And when it’s cold!? This very same fibre structure has the added benefit of providing warmth on colder days. The COOLMAX® Techfit sports vest top:
- High consistency on fabric performance over time
- Excellent moisture management and wicking performance
- Good air permeability
- Must meet a minimum insulation (CLO) requirement
- Excellent fabric stability
- Permanent moisture management performance
- Excellent washfast and colourfast performance
