Wearing the right sportswear with the right fabric technology is essential to maximize performance during physical activity.
There are many factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for athletic wear, including breathability, moisture management, flexibility, and durability.
A crucial factor in fabric technology: breathability
One of the most important factors is breathability. When engaging in physical activity, the body produces heat and sweat.
Breathable fabrics allow air to circulate and help to regulate body temperature, preventing overheating and discomfort.
Avoid sweat-inducing garments
Moisture management is also critical, as sweat can cause discomfort, chafing, and odor.
Moisture-wicking fabrics are designed to pull sweat away from the body and quickly evaporate it, keeping the skin dry and comfortable.
Choose breathable, high quality material to avoid this smelly and annoying problem.
Does it make you move freely?
Another important factor is flexibility.
Athletic activities require a range of motion, and the fabric must move with the body without restricting movement.
Fabrics that stretch and have good shape retention are ideal for athletic wear.
That being said, don’t go for excessively stretchy gear or it won’t give you any support.
You also need some structure.
For example, our REVO2 shirts are loose on front for maximum oxygenation and improved breathing, and tough on the back for spine support.

Last but not least, durability
Additionally, durability is important for sportswear, as it must withstand repeated washing and wear.
When choosing your sportswear, try to invest and get the best.
Look for high quality sportswear, because your health is on the line.
Which fabrics are the best?
There are several different fabric technologies used in athletic wear, including synthetic fabrics, natural fabrics, and blends.
Synthetic fabrics like polyester and nylon are lightweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking, making them a popular choice for athletic wear.
They also dry quickly and are resistant to wrinkles and shrinking.
Natural fabrics like cotton and wool are also breathable, but they absorb moisture and take longer to dry.
Blends of natural and synthetic fabrics can combine the best features of both, offering breathability, moisture-wicking, and flexibility.
And which ones you should avoid (and why you should)
On the other hand, there are fabrics to avoid when it comes to athletic wear. Heavy fabrics like denim and corduroy are not breathable and can trap sweat, making them uncomfortable for athletic activities.
Additionally, fabrics with a high percentage of cotton can absorb moisture and become heavy and uncomfortable during activity.
Choosing the wrong fabric for athletic wear can have negative consequences on performance and comfort.
Wearing fabrics that don’t breathe well can lead to overheating, discomfort, and even heat stroke.
Moisture-wicking fabrics that don’t dry quickly can cause chafing, skin irritation, and unpleasant odors.
Additionally, fabrics that are too heavy or restrictive can hinder movement and lead to injury.
