The revolutionary, pillar-shaped structures of the E.C.W.C.S. fabric effectively draw moisture away from your skin for nexttoskin dryness. Once the moisture is pulled upward, it spreads evenly, and the fabric's exceptional breathability and airflow evaporate it until you're dry again.
Polartec® Power Dry® fabrics are designed to keep your skin dry when you sweat. Ideal for runners, skiers, and adventure travelers, all fabrics in this series feature a patented bi-component knit construction that uses different yarns on either side of the fabric. This creates two different surfaces: one that is optimized to move moisture away from the skin, the other to dry quickly.
Polartec Fabrics with Polygiene® effectively combat body odor by inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria in the fabric. Polygiene® Odor Resist Technology is a silver-salt treatment that permanently binds to the fibers of a fabric. It is nonleaching and safe. Polygiene is bluesign approved and qualifies for Oeko-tex 100 certification. The silver in Polygiene is 100% recycled, recovered from recycled electronics. This system differs from yarn-based silver ion delivery systems which extrude silver ion containing particles into the yarn. Those leave a majority of the active ingredient (silver chloride) trapped inside the yarn where it cannot perform. The silver-salt in Polygiene works because silver physically disables the growth of bacteria. Silver salt technologies require a tiny amount of silver to be highly effective. This differs from chemical products to which bacteria can build a tolerance.
Thanks to its advanced grid pattern, E.C.W.C.S. fabric provides long-term warmth across an extremely wide range of temperatures. Its high-loft fiber pillars open up space for thousands of air channels between your skin and the fabric. This body-length field of air is proven to retain more body heat, increase soothing airflow and it even minimizes bulk and weight.
