This was a total game-changer for me. It wicks sweat superfast, and it's cooler than wearing nothing at all.

Sol Cool uses Icefil technology to keep you cool and comfortable in hot climates. The compound Xylitol, which occurs naturally in the birch tree, is woven into fabric. When it comes into contact with moisture like sweat, it reacts, creating a cooling sensation similar to mint gum. Xylitol can cool the skin surface up to 5°F
The experiment below shows how quickly Xylitol goes into effect. One minute after 10% Xylitol was added, the water's temperature dropped 11°F, and the rate of water evaporation increased significantly.
Sweat works to cool us by evaporating off skin, creating a cooling effect. Water conducts heat 24x better than air, so removing moisture from skin is a very efficient way for the body to regulate temperature.
Sol Cool enhances this cooling with highly efficient wicking fibers, which feature a micro-capillary structure to quickly pull moisture away from the skin and release it on the top of the fabric to evaporate. This keeps you cool and dry no matter how active you are.
Nano-particles woven into the fabric both eliminate odor molecules in the fabric and disperse UV rays. Sol Cool is rated UPF 50+, the highest sun protection rating possible for a garment.
The Sol Cool collection comes in many different styles and colors so you can fit your clothes to your adventure.
