The gym fitness sports outdoor fabric made clothing we see is usually of a ‘two-in-one’ or ‘three-in-one’ fabric construction. These fabrics are based on a high-tech, breathable and warm inner layer, combined with an outer layer that is windproof, waterproof, dirt-proof and anti-static, which provides excellent protection for the outdoor athletes.
In addition to the physical and technical requirements of the outdoor athletes themselves, outdoor clothing is also required to be able to adapt to the harsh weather and complex geographical conditions. This is to ensure the safety of the athletes. The gym fitness sports outdoor fabrics made clothes we see is usually of a ‘two-in-one’ or ‘three-in-one’ fabric construction. These fabrics are based on a high-tech, breathable and warm inner layer, combined with an outer layer that is windproof, waterproof, dirt-proof and anti-static, which provides excellent protection for out-door athletes.
Thermal and breathable design of the fabric
Most of the inner layers used in gym fitness outdoor sportswear are velvet. Due to the high heat generation and evaporation of sweat in outdoor sports, good heat dissipation and ventilation properties are required.
These fabrics have the advantage of being easy to dry, breathable and warm, so they are often used as thermal material for winter outdoor sportswear. The design of the outer fabric should also focus on breathability.
This feature allows the wearer to keep the body dry and comfortable. It makes the apparel both warm and lightweight.
Waterproof and windproof design of the fabric
Most of the common gym fitness fabrics used in outdoor sportswear require a certain level of waterproof (e.g. Oxford fabric). Also to keep the body dry, some garments have a mesh lining added to the waterproof outer fabric as a way of separating the body from the outer layer and keeping it away from the damp. In addition, the fabric must be designed to be windproof. The wind is strong in the wild and it is cold in the mountains. Sports such as mountaineering, skiing or gliding are played in windy conditions.
Abrasion-resistant design of the fabric
The abrasion resistance of garment fabrics cannot be ignored. Even the requirements for anti-bacterial and anti-odour properties and stain resistance are high. After all, laundering conditions are difficult in outdoor areas. For outdoor sports such as rock climbing and trekking, fabrics must have good resistance to stretching and tearing.
