Odour-resistant fabrics work to wick moisture (sweat) away from your body to the exterior of your activewear garment, where it can evaporate away quickly, thereby reducing body odour during your workouts.
Bamboo and Merino are both excellent, naturally odour-resistant fabrics that achieve their odour-resistance in slightly different ways.
Bamboo contains a bio-agent that makes her odour-resistant and therefore perfect for those times when you’re moving your body and sweating a little.
Merino has naturally occurring anti-microbial properties that do the same thing, resulting in a 100% stink-free workout.
Temperature regulation is important. No one needs to be colder when it’s cold, or hotter when it’s hot! Whether the sun is blazing or it’s snowing out, you want to feel comfortable while you #FindYourActive.
Fabrics that help you regulate your temperature are where it’s at. They help keep your body at a stable temperature, enabling you to perform at your best.
When it’s cold, temperature regulating fabrics will trap your natural body heat close to your skin to insulate you and keep you warm.
When it’s warm, these same fabrics will quickly wick sweat away from your skin to the exterior of the garment, helping to keep you cool, dry, and comfortable.
This dual ability to keep you warm and cool are what make temperature regulating fabrics the perfect choice for when there’s a chance you’ll experience varying temperatures as you adventure.
As far as we’re concerned, a quick drying fabric is one that goes from wet to damp in under 30 minutes, and to completely dry within a few hours. Quick-dry clothes should alwaysdry completely when hung overnight.
Why is this important? Well, for one, it makes laundry day much easier! But more importantly, it makes for much more comfortable workouts and adventures.
Quick drying activewear garments reduce heat loss from your body (especially important in cold weather), increase your comfort levels, and remain light throughout your workout (especially important if your adventure involves hiking!).
Cotton is a super comfortable fabric to wear and certainly has its uses - it is a natural fibre, it is breathable, it is super soft and is hypoallergenic so it doesn't irritate your skin. It is a great fabric for many different uses and occasions.
However, when it comes to the great outdoors and especially if you are venturing further a field or partaking in extended adventures, cotton has many shortcomings and may get you into trouble.
