Products using the COR3™ Technology fabric finish have a UPF rating of 30 or greater, properties to minimize odor and outstanding wicking performance for important moisture management. The anti-odor finish helps control odors caused by a wide range of microorganisms (mold, mildew, algae, yeast) is compatible with virtually all fabrics. All of our performance cotton clothing utilizing COR3™ also feature COR3™ EZ. The "EZ" means easy care and indicates that garments featuring this treatment will travel well and resist wrinkles.
Insect Shield repellent apparel provides long-lasting, effective and convenient personal insect protection. The active ingredient in Insect Shield is so tightly bonded to the fabric fibers that it retains effective repellency throughout the lifetime of the product. This is well beyond the lifecycle of most other products on the market which typically last only a number of washes.
Through a combination of fabric construction, design and finish, Solarflex offers UPF50 sun protection. UPF is a measure of how much of the sun's UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric. A UPF 50 rating means that only 1/50 of the sun's UV radiation will pass through the garment.
