Heard the phrase ‘dress for success’? What works for the corporate world holds twice as true when you train. The right clothing can make all the difference between a good workout and a great one. And one key component of workout wear that’s often overlooked over other flashier aspects is breathability.
When a fabric is termed breathable, it means that it is actively ventilated. What makes one fabric more breathable than another is its Moisture Vapor Transmission Rate, or MVTR for short, which measures how rapidly moisture passes through the fabric. If you’re a bit of a geek and into your numbers, then you’ll be interested to know that MVTR is measured in g/m/day, expressed as the mass of moisture that passes through a square meter of fabric in a day. A good breathable fabric combines multiple layers into a single unit where the inner layer wicks sweat away from the body to the outer layer for evaporation. It also doesn’t hold moisture like cotton does, which keeps it lightweight even through excessive release of sweat. Through capillary action, a good breathable fabric also dries quickly, adding to your comfort as you train.
Nike Breathe tech fabric performs all these functions, and then some. Designed to keep you dry, cool and comfortable during your workout, the fabric is meticulously engineered for active ventilation and unparalleled airflow. The Breathe fabric works in tandem with the brand’s Dri-FIT technology that wicks sweat away from your skin. Fusing the two tech features harmoniously, the Nike Breathe line of training wear works as hard as you do, keeping you cool, comfortable and sweat-free from warm-up to cool-down.
