The X-Bionic Trekking Underwear provides significantly increased comfort for athletes who carry backpacks. The patent-pending AirDuct Pads on the shoulders and hips spread the pressure of the backpack over a wide portion of your body. At the same time the special weave of the 3D pads ensures that the sweat-intensive zones under the shoulder and hip belts are effectively ventilated and cooled. While you rest the 3D pads act as insulation.
Trekking Underwear Technology
Maintains body temperature, Cools when sweating, Keeps you warm when cold, Makes wearing a pack easier, Impact Technology, Superiority in the detail. SkinNODOR Technology the gradual release of ions which are activated by body heat is the key to the effectiveness of SkinNODOR. These ions inhibit the growth of microorganisms rather than eliminating them outright thus preserving the delicate balance of the skin`s ecosystem. In other words SkinNODOR is microbacteriostatic (i.e. it inhibits microbacterial growth) rather than bactericidal (bacteria-killing). Therefore allergic reactions do not occur. SkinNODOR is especially soft and breathable and provides superior fit. Reduce sweating. But don`t prevent it!Don`t waste a drop: sweat is too precious to dispose of completely. The skin requires a certain level of moisture in order to cool down. Evaporation cooling only starts to drive the body temperature down when moisture on the skin evaporates. Conventional functional underwear design has tended to ignore this vital fact by absorbing moisture completely and keeping the body as dry as possible. Big Mistake. Dry skin may feel good but it lacks the ability to cool naturally.
The long sleeved version of the trekking shirt is marketed for Winter Trekking and Ski Touring. Where this garment comes into its own is when the weather`s cold but you are working hard it controls your sweat keeping you comfortable and warm.
Like all X-Bionic garments its a stretch fit to provide gentle muscle compression which will improve performance - and it feels very soft against the skin an excellent baselayer for winter activity.
