The sun-protection properties of a woven or knit fabric are dependent upon the transmission, absorption and reflection of UV radiation. The fiber type, dye, construction and finishes determine these characteristics. Our UPF-rated garments offer very good UV protection from prolonged exposure to the sun.
VaporWick® is a moisture-management technology of The North Face® that allows perspiration to wick and move from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric where it can readily evaporate. The evaporation process is accomplished through the use of specifically engineered, high-performance fibers; yarn types; fabric constructions; and finishes. The removal of moisture helps keep the wearer cool, comfortable, and dry during aerobic activity.
