BODY ARMOR T-SHIRTS
The inventors of this fiber were awarded a Nobel Prize for their achievement and it's the only textile fiber to ever do so. Our P3 Vapor™ fabric responds to perspiration like a water flume. The amazing fiber that makes-up MOCEAN's P3 Vapor™ system transports perspiration along the outside of its surface, not inside like wicking fibers. Unlike wicking fibers that 'wet-out' and have to dry-inside and out before you do: the P3 Vapor™ fibers never 'wet-out', so you dry as fast as the atmospheric conditions permit. Furthermore, P3 Vapor™ is soft and slippery to reduce the friction that usually occurs between you and your body armor. This amazing and complex fabric is lightweight, durable, exceptionally comfortable and can be worn immediately after the spin cycle in your washer because it doesn't 'wet-out'. Whatever the temperature or your activity level, these P3 Vapor™ shirts will deliver as we claim.
- P3 Vapor™ shell w/ pre-knit collar
- Close fitted and tapered to reduce fabric folds between you and your body armor
- 'Anatomically Sculpted™' to achieve the best fit
- Pre-knitted collar on all styles and cuffs on Mock
- 'Asymmetrical Arm Eyes™' keep shirt tucked in
- Short sleeves on Crew and V-neck
- Single needle top stitching around collar and shoulders
- Coverstitch hem allows stretching without thread 'snap'
What is Coolmax mesh?: It is a high tech, tetra(4)-channel polyester fiber that is warp-knit into a tricot-mesh construction. Coolmax is designed to 'wick-away' your perspiration.
What is wick? Wicking is a process in which a fluid is drawn-out via 'wet-out/saturation'; (as an oil lamp fuels itself). Fit is important here because in order to wick your perspiration away, Coolmax® must be in contact with your perspiration. MOCEAN addresses this fact within our fit and designs.
Can Coolmax wick moisture from outside the garment? Yes. Moisture can be 'sponged-in' from outside the garment unless steps are taken to prevent this. MOCEAN is keenly aware of this fact and has created "Binary Linings™" and 'Moisture Fences™" to solve this problem.
Is the Coolmax wicking action permanent? Yes. Wicking is innate to the engineered matrix of the tetra-channel Coolmax fibers. It will not wash-out or wear-off over time.
How about drying? Laboratory tests prove that Coolmax mesh dries faster than other fabrics (that wet-out). Data shows a drying rate of l5% faster than the nearest competitor.
