How does moisture wicking fabric work? The science of staying dry - VERZUS ALL Apparel

Moisture wicking fabrics: where science meets comfort, keeping you dry and confident through every move.

Whether you’re an avid gym-goer, a runner, or just someone who likes to stay active, you’ve probably heard of moisture-wicking fabrics. These high-tech fabrics are most often used in the production of athletic wear and gym clothes, but have become increasingly common in everyday clothes like women's leggings and even moisture wicking underwear.


The secret to moisture-wicking fabrics lies in their ability to wick away sweat and moisture from your skin. These fabrics are made from synthetic fibers which have a unique structure that makes them hydrophobic, meaning they repel water. 

Why moisture wicking fabrics are perfect for athletic wear

Moisture wicking fabrics are perfect for the gym, sports, hiking and more. Unlike cotton or other natural fibers, which can absorb water and become heavy and uncomfortable, moisture-wicking fabrics are designed to pull sweat and moisture away from your skin and disperse it throughout the fabric, allowing it to evaporate quickly.


The many benefits of moisture wicking fabrics

Moisture-wicking gym clothes offer a range of benefits for anyone who likes to stay active. First and foremost, they keep you dry and comfortable, which can help you perform better and stay motivated during your workouts. They also help prevent chafing and irritation, which can be a common problem for people who exercise regularly.


Not all moisture wicking workout clothes are created equal

Most rapid-dry athletic apparel wicks away sweat, but doesn't do anything about body odour or harmful UV rays. The VERZUS ALL RESULTS Tee takes moisture wicking to the next level of comfort by combining 3 amazing technologies—moisture wicking, anti-odour, and UV protection—to keep you cool, comfortable, and protected, even in the most strenuous situations. From the gym, to the club, to the great outdoors, there’s no wrong way to wear VERZUS ALL. 

Finally, a moisture wicking fabric with anti-odour & UV protection built right in

Anyone who’s worn traditional moisture wicking gym clothes knows, dried sweat still smells like… well, sweat. That’s where VERSUZ ALL comes in. The moisture-wicking fabric used for our RESULTS tee doesn’t just keep you cool and dry, it prevents B.O. through a unique anti-microbial, anti-stink technology, and blocks harmful UV rays with our UVTX tech. Anti-Sweat, anti-stink technology means you can stay fresh and comfortable, even after multiple workouts, without a stop at the laundromat. 



The VERZUS ALL RESULTS Tee: three amazing technologies, one amazing workout shirt

With our RESULTS T-shirt for men and RESULTS T-shirt for women, we’ve combined three separate technologies in one amazing fabric that’s changing the way we think about performance apparel. The RESULTS tee combines the moisture-wicking properties of our DRYTX® tech, which keeps you dry and comfortable, PROTX2®, an anti-microbial technology that puts a stop to stink, and UVTX, which is like a wearable sunblock that keeps your skin safe from harmful UV rays. Put them all together, and the RESULTS tee speaks for itself.


PROTX2® - Puts a stop to the B.O....and the B.S. Anti-odour technology keeps you fresh, so you can now wear more and wash less.


DRYTX® - Keeps your sweaty assets in check with rapid vaporization technology, so you feel cool and dry, all day, all night.


UVTX - The strength of sunblock in a comfortable fabric. Keeps UV rays at bay, while keeping you cool and dry.

How to wash moisture wicking fabrics

Moisture-wicking gym clothes are designed to be durable and long-lasting, but they do require some special care to keep them in top condition. To ensure your moisture-wicking clothes last as long as possible, always follow the care instructions on the label. In general, it’s best to wash moisture wicking athletic apparel in cold water with a gentle detergent, and avoid using fabric softeners or dryer sheets, as these can clog the fibers and diminish their moisture-wicking properties.

Skip the dryer to keep your workout clothes in peak condition

It’s also important to avoid exposing your moisture-wicking gym clothes to heat, as high temperatures can cause the fibers to break down and decrease their effectiveness. For the best results, we suggest you skip the dryer and either hang dry on a clothesline or plastic hanger, or lay them flat to dry on a towel. Of course, skipping the dryer is no problem, since moisture wicking clothes are designed to dry quickly, even without heat and tumbling.
