- NILIT® Breeze
is the secret behind ExOfficio’s
new Sol Cool™ Performance Hoody for men and women. ExOfficio designers selected the fabric made with ultra-fine NILIT® Breeze nylon fibers because they are constantly cool to the touch, breathable, and provide UPF 50 protection from ultraviolet rays. In addition, the Sol Cool™ fabric has a rich but understated matte aesthetic offering a welcome update to the shiny athletic look. Overall, NILIT® Breeze delivers the perfect combination of attributes that ExOfficio wanted for its performance hoody.
“Every piece we make is designed to give travelers confidence and freedom to explore the world,” says Julie Snow, VP of design and product development for ExOfficio. “We do that by combining the right technology, features, and aesthetics for specific pieces depending on how adventurer travelers will use them. NILIT® Breeze is an ideal fit for the Sol Cool™ Performance Hoody because it provides adventure travelers protection from sun and heat with a stylish, understated look that they desire. Most importantly, the hoody feels really good and is incredibly comfortable.”
NILIT® Breeze is a patented cooling comfort yarn that helps maintain a comfortable body temperature during physical activities and in warm weather. The proven cooling effect is due to three unique factors: the fiber’s flat cross section that quickly transfers body heat, the unique polymer with microns that form cooling channels and protect from UV radiation, and the special texturizing process that produces a low-bulk yarn for maximum breathability. The ultra-soft hand creates a pleasant, smooth sensation on the skin.
