Breathability in waterproof clothing is especially important when you sweat while working in cold environments. If you do not get rid of the moisture, there is a great risk that your wet clothes will get cold and you will freeze as a result.
This symbol on clothing indicates that you have a product that helps to keep you warm when the surroundings are cool.
An important characteristic of moisture wicking clothing is that it also dries quickly. If moisture is allowed to remain on the fabric there is the danger that it could freeze and subsequently lead to hypothermia. A quick-drying material means sweat quickly evaporates. With the combination of moisture-wicking technology and quick-drying material, you are assured of maximum comfort regardless of your activity level.
