CoolVisions® has better chemical and stain resistance when compared to other fibers.
The fiber is much lighter providing better coverage with less garment weight and fiber content.
CoolVisions® has excellent thermal insulation properties.
Moisture management polyesters have engineered "channels" to transport moisture. To avoid the "blocking" of these channels, garments should not be laundered with fabric softeners or dryer sheets. CoolVisions® does not require channels for moisture management and is not affected by fabric softeners.
