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.


    The key to the performance capabilities of COOLMAX® are found in its specially-engineered polyester fibres. Rather than being round like traditional fibres, COOLMAX® fibres are slightly oblong and are designed with grooves running lengthwise along the threads. These closely spaced channels create capillary action, that wicks moisture through the core and out to a wider area on the surface of the fabric where they can quickly evaporate. During warm weather this allows perspiration to evaporate fast, keeping your body dry and cool. This functionality is also applicable for cold weather base layers, where the breathability and fast-drying properties prevent the build up of excess body heat and moisture and its subsequent chilling effect. Lightweight, and durable and slightly stretchy, the fabric also dries 50% faster than cotton making it ideal for travel and everyday wear. For SS21 we utilize three variations or COOLMAX® enabled fabrics across a range of utilitarian styles.
