Soft, super lightweight, breezy drirelease® fabric dries four times faster than cotton and wicks moisture from your skin so it evaporates fast to leave you dry and cool on hot or humid days. No other blend keeps you drier or more comfortable.
It’s unavoidable. When you’re active, you sweat. And, as sweat is made from water, if you’re not wearing drirelease®, whatever you’re wearing is inevitably going to absorb that moisture. That scenario quickly results in uncomfortable days and lackluster performance.
A patented blend…
But when you’re wearing a drirelease® shirt, things turn out much differently. drirelease® performance fabric is constructed from an incredibly soft, patented blend of synthetic, hydrophobic (water-repelling) and natural hydrophilic (water-absorbing) fibers.
Moisture wicking is cool…
This unique performance blend is what’s commonly referred to as “moisture-wicking.” Simply put the drirelease® fabric effectively wicks, or pulls perspiration and moisture away from the skin and pushes it to the exterior of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly and cool you down. That’s why Orvis shirts made with drirelease® always feel soft and stay dry.
drirelease® is not a surface treatment. There are many chemically treated performance fabrics out there that make similar claims as drirelease®. However, these fabrics typically lose their effectiveness over time as they’re washed and rewashed. Not so with drirelease®. As the moisture-wicking properties of drirelease® are literally woven into the yarn, the wicking properties never wash out.
You'll even smell better...
All drirelease® apparel incorporates environmentally friendly FreshGuard. FreshGuard isn’t an antimicrobial nor an antibacterial (both of which attack bacteria). Instead, Freshguard helps prevent odors from growing in the first place. The result is that odors, along with moisture, are quickly released from the garment.
