The sun has got its hat on – and we’re all rejoicing in a little warm weather fun. But outdoors activities in hot weather do bring a few hazards, not least “sweating”! While sweating is a natural by-product of enjoying your time outdoors in the sun, few of us will welcome the other side effects, including dampness, clamminess and odour.
That’s why outdoor clothing for warmer weather is made with magical breathable fabrics. With Regatta outdoor clothing, look out for a range of fabrics that are used in warm weather garments, such as t-shirts.
Comfort Control: Made from synthetic blends, Comfort Control fabric is both comfortable against the skin and highly effective at wicking moisture away from the skin. What this means is that when you sweat the vapours can evaporate through the fabric. Another advantage of Comfort Control fabrics is that it’s quick drying.
Carbon bamboo: Bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world, and boasts amazing technical qualities such as keeping your body dry by allowing sweat to escape and sun protection of SPF 20+. The bamboo fabric is also great at keeping body odour at bay thanks to natural anti-bacterial properties. Genius, eh?!
Another feature to look out for is SunShade. These are Regatta fabrics that offer sun protection of 20+ to 40+
