Cotton: The Fabric of Our Lives....That is the recognizable motto of Cotton Inc. Cotton is a rarely found fabric in the wardrobe of hardcore outdoor thrill-seekers. Lindsay Lohan has a better chance of maturing and admiting she is a screw-up before a cotton tee ends up on your back for a bump-filled thrill ride.
Cotton Inc. and Polarmax have formed a partnership to make cotton apparel more likely to be found in your backpack. Polarmax is promoting the first line of technical tees with TransDry, a cotton fabric touted for its wicking ability. TransDry is advertised as drying twice as fast as regular cotton.
Polarmax PMX TransDry Tee is available in short or long sleeves. The tee features heavy-duty stitching and boasts scent preventing anti-microbial. Those features play second fiddle to the hype behind TransDry cotton.
The Polarmax PMX TransDry Tee fits comfortably as expected for a cotton shirt. It does have a definitively different feel than a regular cotton tee, and you can tell that it is not your typical cotton shirt. A midsummer hike in the hot and humid trails in the southern suburbs of Pittsburgh is the best way to take the TransDry Tee to its limits and see how it performs.
It does wick perspiration noticeably quicker than a regular cotton shirt and lives up to Polarmax's claims. Plus a sweat-filled PMX TransDry Tee didn't leech to the skin like a regular cotton workout shirt would. But it's still not on the same level as a non-cotton tee for wicking ability.
The PMX TransDry Tee is best suited for anyone that likes the feel and fit of cotton apparel but wants a little wicking ability. Plus the scent preventing anti-microbial keeps you smelling sweet even after a sweat dripping ride or hike.
The Polarmax PMX TransDry Tee will hit brick-and-mortar and online retailers around the late summer/early fall time frame. The PMX TransDry Tee will list for $44.95 for the short sleeve and $49.95 for the long sleeve.
