Proof in the Science

Adjusts the Microclimate

Whether Warm…

When it's warm, cool off: Quickly absorbs and wicks moisture out, where it evaporates to keep the microclimate cooler and comfortable.

Or Cold

When it's cool, stay warmer: Creates a warm air layer to keep the microclimate between your skin and the fabric warmer and comfortable.

SORBTEK 365 provides moisture management and thermal comfort based on the following test methods and performance levels:

  • SORBTEK Vertical Wicking – 15cm within 30 minutes after 3 launders on synthetic or 12cm within 30 minutes after 3 launders on cotton rich fabrics
