This weekend’s going to be hot, hot, hot. Wahoo! What to wear? We’re big fans of wicking fabrics but keeping moisture moving fabrics won’t cool you down. When it’s roasting hot and you’re frantically exerting yourself in the heat what you need is a wicking fabric that can harness the cooling properties of your sweat. But how do you do that without getting that irritating t-shirt cling? Polartec Delta that’s how.
Polartec Delta was created so cooling fabric technologies could better utilise the body’s natural cooling process. With its interesting honeycomb type look, it uses a specialised construction that knits natural fibres with synthetic fibres meaning that moisture is wicked away but held onto, for a short time, by the natural fibres. This gives you the benefit of your body’s natural cooling mechanism but no cling because the honeycomb-like structure raises the fabric from your body. Everso slightly. Cool without the cling! Genius. We’re loving these tees by Italian brand Crazy Idea but sadly they’re not yet in the UK (although there is an English version of the website and you could buy in Euro). Salewa also uses Delta in their Pedroc Delta tees. Check them out here.
