CoolMax is a technical synthetic fabric developed in 1986 to aid moisture removal during sport. Using grooved polyester fibres that wick moisture away from the skin through capilliary action, it then disperses it over a wide surface area to accelerate evaporation. This in turn aids cooling to increase personal comfort – hence the CoolMax name.
Granite Stretch has a tough nylon outer weave which adds abrasion resistance. It has a soft inner weave for comfort and a DWR finish stops moisture penetration.
DWR. Durable Water Repellent, is a coating added to fabrics to help add to their water repellency and shed water and snow more effectively.
UPF is the Ultra-Violet Protection Factor that you receive from your clothing. The higher the number the more protection from the suns harmful rays you achieve.
