About DRI-back Waterproof technology
This highly functional material is waterproof and breathable, it effectively and instantly vents the moisture out that builds up in your footwear when you sweat, drawing moisture away from the skin during exercise improving comfort and performance. DRI-back helps to regulate the body temperature while repelling water if you are caught in the rain.
Why is DRI-back so breathable?
During athletic activity, humans can sweat up to 1.5 litres per hour and simply walking can produce up to 0.5 litres of sweat per hour. All this moisture must move through your clothing.
Most common waterproof systems do not literally breath, they simply absorb moisture from the body which is then pushed through the fabric to evaporate. This is an effective process.
Stuburt's DRI-back waterproof technology allows body heat to move through directly in vapour form. Tiny pores in the fabric are air-permeable meaning DRI-back fabric can actually breathe. This is a far more effective system and one that will help regulate body temperature.
