The roots of COOLMAX® can be traced back to 1986, when DuPont™ textile engineers developed a completely new type of polyester yarn that successfully transferred heat and moisture away from the body. Following years of testing and development, COOLMAX® officially debuted in 1998 and quickly became a fixture in high performance outdoor and fitness apparel as a lightweight alternative to cotton and wool. Applied across a wide range of sectors, COOLMAX® continues to be at the forefront of breathable and moisture wicking technology, enabling users to experience maximum comfort and performance.
