Polyester versus Cotton Cooling Features:
All our SeaGuard™ custom gaiters are made from highly breathable ocean engineered material with the perfect balance of comfort, cooling and protective properties; a shield for whatever the ocean throws at you.
Our premium polyester knit is designed for hot climates and features ultra comfort due to its moisture wicking lightweight poly-tech fabric. Moisture wicking fabrics are modern technical fabrics which draw moisture away from the face. They are made of high-tech polyester, which, unlike cotton, absorbs very little water. Cotton will absorb 7% of its weight in water, polyester only 0.4%. This creates a neck gaiter that has 46 times the UPF rating of a cotton gaiter and many times its cooling factors.
Our custom neck gaiters also feature an antimicrobial coating. This coating minimizes the effects of harmful bacteria reaching your skin and the tight polyester knit allows for stain resistance giving your custom neck gaiter a comfortable yet durable longevity.
