KNOW YOUR TECH breaks down the scientific technology used in your favorite sneakers and activewear. Let’s demystify your next purchase: today’s technology is Nike Dri-FIT. This microfiber fabric is utilized on a variety of Nike apparel, including shirts, socks, pants, sweatshirts, and more. Utilizing moisture wicking properties, Dri-FIT helps to keep athletes cool and comfortable during intense sessions.
What is it? A high-performance, microfiber polyester fabric which serves to wick sweat away from the wearer's body. Dri-FIT material, combined with ventilation zones, allows for air flow and sweat wicking in the areas where athletes need it most.
How does it work? Instead of trapping sweat and moisture in the garment, Dri-FIT pushes sweat away from the body and onto its surface, where it is then evaporated. The result is a dry and comfortable feeling that allows for a free range of motion. Dri-FIT Body Mapping construction adds strategically placed ventilation zones for added breathability, while Dri-FIT UV features built-in UPF 30 ultraviolet protection.
