Polartec – Delta Cooling Fabric

The big new ‘oooh’ story from material manufacturer Polartec is the Delta cooling fabric. This is their first cooling fabric to hit the market and positions itself between cotton and polyester on the cooling scale and it features both hydrophobic and hydrophilic fibres.


These means that any moisture – lets just call it sweat – is pushed and pulled around the garment by the fibres to help evaporation.

It’s been picked up and is appearing in products by Salewa, Karpos, Kathmandu and Outdoor Retailer amongst others.
