Leading performancewear brands to use Polartec Delta

Jun '16
Polartec, a manufacturer of innovative textile solutions, recently announced that performancewear brands Westcomb, Outdoor Research, Kitsbow and Velocio will be the first to introduce garments using Polartec Delta, the company's first cooling solution.

The company's Delta utilises a permanent mechanical wicking construction using hydrophobic and hydrophilic yarns to prolong the skin's natural evaporative cooling response. The sophisticated construction provides permanently integrated cooling for a highly breathable garment which does not stick to the wearer's body during high-output activities.

Polartec's Delta is a blend between cotton and polyester carrying sweat and holding it next to skin, where it most closely replicates the human body's natural cooling processes, while still allowing the fabric to dry quickly. Garments made with Delta provide comfort, reduce skin cling and help control odour.

“Brand partners instantly saw the value in Delta's permanent cooling capabilities within their garment. The science of the fabric was the initial hook, and the comfort experienced in field testing sealed the deal. We are excited to see major brands garments hit the market all over the world so consumers can get to experience Delta first-hand, “said Karen Beattie, product marketing manager, base layers, Polartec.

Polartec will be demonstrating Delta at Summer Outdoor Retailer from August 3-6, 2016, in Utah, Texas. (HO)
