Moisture wicking fabrics have two jobs: one is quickly moving (wicking) sweat to the fabric’s outer surface and the other is drying rapidly so that your sweat doesn’t saturate the fabric.
The result is that you’re more comfortable because your body can regulate its temperature efficiently and the fabric touching your skin has a dry, non-sticky feel.
How Moisture-Wicking Fabrics Work
Don’t sweat the science,
Why Choose Moisture-Wicking Fabric?
When you’re breaking a good sweat, that sweat evaporates and produces a cooling effect. After skin temperature cools to a comfortable level, your body stops sweating. It’s a super-efficient process, and one that an effective moisture-wicking fabric will complement.
Generally, you want moisture-wicking fabric on any apparel that touches your skin. You also want it on clothes you plan to wear while you’re doing aerobic (sweat-producing) activities like hiking or running or indeed any sport and obviously if you live in hot climate moisture wicking fabrics are perfect.
