Cool to the Core: CoolMax

Ever hit the trail in a shirt or jacket that wore like a greenhouse, magnifying the sun and heat until you were drenched in perspiration? Never again with CoolMax™. Built for high-performance activities in warm or cold weather, light, breathable CoolMax moves dampness away from your skin to the outer layer of the fabric. Perspiration evaporates fast, so you stay dry and comfortable without missing a step. In head-to-head tests against cotton, CoolMax dried almost completely in 30 minutes while cotton took nearly 50% longer. Since it dries so quickly, it's great for travel because you can wash it in a sink or stream and it will be ready to pull on in the morning.

Background

The first moisture management fabric, CoolMax virtually spawned the performance fabric category when it was introduced in 1986. Developed as a high-performance fabric for athletes, CoolMax has become a fixture in fitness and outdoor apparel. Its most notable feature is wicking sweat to the outer layer of the fabric where it dries fast.
