SOME POLYGIENE TREATED PRODUCTS FROM OUR PARTNERS

WE MAKE YOUR SPORTS GARMENTS AND GEAR ODOR FREE

Poly_Sport_1layer_80

Layer-1

Even after the most intense physical activity Polygiene treated baselayers will not smell. They will breath and keep you warm, day in and day out, but they won’t develop a bad odor.
Poly_Sport_2layer

Layer-2

The primary role of a base layer is to transport moisture away from the skin. With Polygiene you can be sure that any sweat moving through different layers will not lead to unpleasant odors.
Poly_Sport_3layer

Layer-3

Polygiene can help preserve the performance characteristics of shell products as the treatment stops odor causing bacteria and reduces the need to wash frequently.
Poly_Sport_Accessories

Gloves

Hands can become very hot and sweaty but gloves are often delicate and need the appropriate washing and care. Polygiene treatment allows gloves to be cared for in the right way and will always be fresh and odor free.
Poly_Sport_Shoes

Footwear

Shoes and socks are the breeding ground for bad smells and everybody can recognise the smell of a sweaty sock or shoe. Polygiene treatment will always keep your footwear and socks fresh and odor free.
Poly_Sport_Wetsuits_80

Wetsuits

Wetsuits are submerged for long periods of time which allows fungi to grow and can lead to skin infections. By treating the lining of a wetsuit with Polygiene this can be avoided as well as stopping any odor development.
Poly_Sport_Protection

Helmets

Protective gear may become very hot and sweaty but they are essential for many physical activties. Using helmets with Polygiene treated liners will prolong the life of your helmet and keep it fresh and odor free.
Poly_Sport_Bags

Bags

Bags and backpacks are often subject to lots of humidity that can lead to odor, fungi and mildew. By treating the interior, and parts of the exterior with Polygiene, this can be stopped.
Polygiene, Treated Products, Hats and accessories

Accessories

Hats, beanies, buffs and all accessories you can think of will stay fresh and need less washing when treated with Polygiene.

Testimonials

ActiveGearReview.com, Shannon Fonger, January 2015, US

Capilene® 4 is the thickest of the Capilene fabric line and is designed to keep you dry and warm whilst with the addition of Polygiene® technology you can keep your layers smelling clean. The Pro Zip-Neck has been amazing, in one week I was able to run 4 days in a row, wear it for 3 ski days, and bum around the house. Not one, “Oooh, you stink!” comment was made and over two months I have washed it only a few times.

Patagonia Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck

Pro Zip-Neck has been amazing, in one week I was able to run 4 days in a row in the top, wear it for 3 ski days, and bum around the house before and after these adventures. Not one, “Oooh, you stink!”

For starters, Capilene® is a polyester wicking fiber that is composed of 35% or more recycled content. There are various weights of Capilene®, with Capilene® 4 is the thickest and warmest of the Capilene fabric line, making it perfect for cold weather pursuits. While Polygiene® helps to keep your layers smelling clean. Polygiene® is an anti-bacterial agent that has been incorporated into the garment, which allows you to extend the garments number of wears before washing. Both Polygiene® and Capilene® are bluesign approved, which means they are made in the most eco-friendly industry standards during production.

My husband will tell you, my base layers tend to smell after only one wear. Apparently, I produce a great medium for bacteria to grow and make a top or bottom smell! The Patagonia Women’s Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck has been amazing, in one week I was able to run 4 days in a row in the top, wear it for 3 ski days, and bum around the house before and after these adventures. Not one, “Oooh, you stink!” comment was made. I have had the garment for just over two months and I have washed it only a few times. The idea behind this addition to the garment is to not set records for lack of washing, rather reduce the garments eco-footprint.

Patagonia Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck and Boot Bottoms
I’ve been testing the Patagonia Capilene® 4 Pro Zip-Neck for the past 2 months. I have been wearing the top for just about every outdoor pursuit I can think of. When running, I was comfortable in the top and a light Gore wind jacket in temperatures as low as the teens. While skiing, I have paired the top with my Patagonia Nano-Air Jacket and a shell, and been toasty in the single digits. I am sure the top will come to good use come shoulder and summer seasons as well.

”I have to admit, I have not washed my bottoms for an entire week and you cannot tell at all.”

As detailed above, the Patagonia Women’s Capilene® 4 Pro Boot Bottoms feature Polygiene fabric. I have to admit, I have not washed my bottoms for an entire week and you cannot tell at all. I have skied at the resort, hiked, and cross country skied in them. Plus, I have worn them pre and post adventure. The fabric truly works!
