California based running apparel company Built On Athletics is planning to launch a line of men's and women's running apparel using proprietary Garmatex IceSkin fabric in mid-2017. This was announced by Garmatex Holdings. IceSkin has been developed by Garmatex Technologies and it allows body cooling in runners even at extreme temperatures. 
 
Garmatex proprietary cooling fabric technology IceSkin combines Jade infused cooling technology with Garmatex Bact-Out Anti-Microbial, lightning fast moisture transport, and UV protection.
 
Jeff Fleming of Built On Athletics (BOA) said, "We are always looking for new state of the art fabrics to ensure our customer has the best product available, and GTI has raised the bar. Having state of the art products is key to stay ahead of the pack and offer the best products."
 
"We were trying to find the answer to controlling body temperature to ensure peak performance at all times. So we tested this fabric on athletes running in the deserts of Arizona in temperatures exceeding 110 degrees and also in East Cape, Baja where temperatures were in the upper 90's with 95 per cent humidity. The cooling properties of this fabric made the runner feel like he was wearing his own personal air conditioning system," Fleming said.
 
GTI's president and CEO, Darren Berezowski, said, "Its great to see that athletic apparel companies like BOA are validating the cutting edge technologies being innovated by GTI. From the beginning GTI has sought to develop technologies that would address extreme conditions that both the amateur and professional might face each day."
 
GTI is the developer of Garmatex Holdings' recently licensed Garmatex scientifically-engineered fabric technologies and performance technologies, including a patented T3 design, Bact-Out, CoolSkin, WarmSkin, Kottinu, ColdSkin, SteelSkin, Satinu, CamoSkin, RecoverySkin, SlimSkin, AbsorbSkin and IceSkin.
