Wickron Cool

Made from polyester fibers, the interior of Wickron Cool fabric employs capillary action to wick moisture from the skin and transport it to the highly breathable exterior layer. Once at the surface the sweat spreads out to speed evaporation and create a cooling action. In addition, the fibers on the exterior of the fabric receive a high-density ceramic treatment in defense against UV & visible rays from the sun. Improved for 2011, the knitting pattern and filament tensile strength for this fabric have been updated to minimize "snagging" and improve durability without any adverse affect on breathability or weight.

Superior Breathability

Wickron Cool technology achieves its extraordinary breathability because this three dimensionally structured mesh fabric is knitted with unique clover shaped fibers. These special fibers allow us manipulate the knit to produce microscopic airflow channels. Even while active in warm sunny conditions, this network of channels promote an open breezy feel to keep you as comfortable as possible.

Quick Dry Properties

The clover shaped fibers and textured interior knit used in Wickron Cool promote a capillary action, moving moisture away from the skin to the highly breathable exterior for quick evaporation. By quickly spreading your bodies' moisture over greater surface area we reduce dry time to roughly half that of a traditional cotton shirt.

Improved Resistance to Abrasion

By quickly spreading your bodies' moisture over greater surface area we reduce dry time to roughly half that of a traditional cotton shirt.

Improving Odor Control

Montbell adds a scientifically formulated photo-catalytic agent directly to the polyester fibers before the knitting process. Once activated by an ultraviolet light source the titanium dioxide fights natural body odors at a molecular level.

Balancing Sun Protection and Breathability

All "UV COOL" labeled items block a maximum of 90% of the solar ultraviolet radiation (UV radiation) while providing comfort and breathability (test conducted with black Wickron fabric). Our airy, travel ready polyester is exceptionally soft and light, yet highly UV absorbent to shield you from elements.
