    How to choose your t-shirts for this summer

    Whether you're running the Strava ODLO ULTRA FUN challenge, going hiking or simply being active, comfort in your clothing is of primary importance and is a real challenge in the sun and in hot weather. Breathability, moisture management, materials and freshness are the key points to consider when buying. Our expertise of over 70 years in textile design has enabled us to develop many materials and technologies specially designed to ensure comfort and performance during the warm season, let's take a look together.

    Technologies: Ceramicool, Linencool, F-Dry

    Ceramicool: This is an active cooling technology that is activated the moment you start your activity. This cooling effect, which can reduce skin temperature by up to 1°C, is achieved through a combination of three factors:

    - Ceramic particles embedded in the fiber allow for rapid heat transfer.

    - The specific mesh forms small air channels that allow the heat to be quickly evacuated to cool the skin.

    - The very light yarn used results in a lightweight fabric that offers maximum breathability and ventilation.

    Linencool: Linen is the strongest and most durable natural fibre and has naturally cooling properties. The blend of linen and polyester used for Linencool has the ability to cool the skin by up to 0.5°C compared to 100% polyester fabric. This is combined with good moisture management and fast drying.

    F-Dry: This innovative technology offers optimal moisture management and the fastest drying time ever designed by ODLO. F-Dry keeps your body at an ideal temperature thanks to the push-pull effect created by the polypropylene on the inside of the fabric and the polyester on the outside. Instead of absorbing moisture, the polypropylene wicks it outwards. This evaporates the moisture, giving a pleasant cooling sensation.

    The materials:

    Merino wool: Merino wool is a much finer wool than classic wool and has many natural advantages. It offers effective temperature management and will keep you at comfortable temperature without making you sweat and has antibacterial properties that prevent it from retaining odours. Very soft to the touch, it is an essential ally for your comfort.

    Tencel cellulose fibre: This is a fabric of natural origin that instantly provides a sensation of extreme softness on the skin. The fibre's natural moisture management regulates the body's temperature and climate, and unpleasant odours are a thing of the past thanks to a particularly effective antibacterial action. TENCEL™ Lyocell fibers have gained the reputation for their environmentally responsible closed loop production process, which transforms wood pulp into cellulosic fibers with high resource efficiency and low ecological impact. This solvent-spinning process recycles water and reuses the solvent at a recovery rate of more than 99%.
