Winter Outdoor Retailer 2016 –Polartec, LLC, a premium provider of innovative textile solutions, today announced the launch of its first cooling platform, Polartec® Delta™. Delta is a permanent mechanical wicking fabric that evolves how athletes and adventurers dress for performance in warmer climates. Inspired by the design of car radiators, the new fabric is constructed of an optimal base layer that provides wicking capabilities, reduces skin cling, regulates drying and is highly breathable without any chemical treatments. Polartec will be demonstrating Delta at Booth #36039 at Winter Outdoor Retailer 2016 in Salt Lake City Jan. 7-10, 2016.

Traditionally, athletes turned to cotton, polyester or synthetic garments in warmer climates but found them lacking because they either soaked through or weren’t breathable. Polartec’s Delta sits in the sweet spot between cotton and polyester, shifting what it means to perform in warm weather. Polartec created its first cooling fabric to maximize the effectiveness of the body’s natural sweat response. Delta carries sweat and holds it next to skin where it most closely replicates the human body’s natural cooling processes while still allowing the fabric to dry quickly. Whether the athlete is a long distance runner, paddle boarding under intense heat or pushing themselves through a WOD, Delta provides comfort, reduces wet cling and chaffing and helps control odor.

“With Delta, Polartec is now a four-season brand,” said Polartec Senior Vice President of Operations Doug Kelliher. “Delta makes working out, running or doing anything in a warm climate in a wet cotton t-shirt a thing of the past. The fabric helps athletes stay in that ‘Just Right’ zone where they can maximize their performance without overheating.”
