What is the purpose of Dri-Fit?
Dri-fit apparel is widely used in areas which require the user to be active, such as exercising, manual labor and even competitive sports.
The Dri-fit material is designed to absorb your sweat and keep your body fresh and dry. The material strives to absorb sweat off your body and disperse them through the design of the material. This is the main reason why many people prefer Dri-fit apparel when they are doing active and manual tasks.
Due to its sweat-draining properties, Dri-fit apparel retains less moisture, and does not get heavier while you sweat. Also the ventilation helps keep your body cool while you work on your active tasks or sports.
What is it made out of?
Dri-fit apparel is made of interlock polyester microfiber. What's special about it, is that microfiber has a smaller diameter than a single strand of silk, a metric called “ denier” which means that microfiber fabric weighs less than silk.
It goes beyond regular polyester. Well made synthetic material is hydrophobic, meaning that it has great moisture resistance. It tends to have greater durability than most natural fibers. This will result in long lasting without wrinkling, staining, pilling or fading.
Is it waterproof?
Most types of Dri-FIT provide excellent water resistance but lack 100% waterproofing. Polyester does not easily absorb liquid. This enables its great wicking ability which means that water won’t quickly soak through it in light rain.
How to maintain the Dri-Fit apparel?
There are a lot of ways to maintain dri-fit apparel. To keep your dri-fit apparel in a perfect condition, you have to avoid washing them in the same load of laundry as other items that have zippers. No matter how inconvenient it may seem, always wash them separately. Did you know that extra chemicals and fragrance particles found in fabric clothes can clog the fibers of moisture thus limiting their capacity to wick away sweat and prevent odors. It is always better to use unscented special detergents.
