How to Stay Cool During the Hot Weather

Posted on July 25 2019

Cute dog being cool
This has been one of the hottest summers on record and will stay this way for the next couple of months.  One of the biggest challenges is trying to find clothing that will not make you sweat and also feel comfortable. We have a solution! We’re excited to introduce our newest product line called SMARTees.

What is a SMARTee?

Like our NoNetz swim shorts, SMARTees are designed with comfort in mind.  They also help manage your sweat - no more pit rings, sweat cling and skunk lines of back sweat - just a t-shirt that hangs perfectly, feels great with cooling undershirt.

How is the SMARTee line different from other training apparel? 

The SMARTee fabric is made up of our smart technology. It provides true metabolic cooling in hot temperature, high exertion activities rather than sensorial cooling … which is usually the offer in other cooling fabrics in the industry.  What makes our SMARTees different is that this is not a wicking fabric. Wicking fabrics still cause you to sweat and then traps that sweat in the fabric which can cause embarrassing odors and discomfort. Our SMARTees proactively manages your body temperature so that you don’t sweat in the first place.

What does the fabric for SMARTee feel like to the touch? 

It has a very good drape and soft hand feel plus reduces skin touch to combat cling and chafing. 

Can you give me the quick version of how the fabric works? 

It's a bi-component fabric that functions like a radiator. SMARTees allows the garment to stand off the skin slightly. This allows for moisture to “circulate” throughout the fabric by regulating the drying time. Convective heat loss increases the cooling effect. Our SMARTees cooling tee shirts contains a revolutionary textile technology that provides fabrics with the ability to interact with body temperature and dynamically respond to body heat. The cooling function is activated when you are hot and sweaty and deactivated once cooling is complete. It helps to ensure optimal comfort and performance, ensuring you are always cool and comfortable.

How does this compare to a cotton shirt? 

Cotton t-shirts  will stay damp longer than a true wicking baselayer. Our SMARTees regulate your body temperature which makes it perfect for hot climates and it doesn’t cling to your body when it gets wet like cotton does. Also the nature of cotton will retain moisture much longer than a SMARTee which can cause embarrassing odors and discomfort.

What kind of activities can I do with the SMARTee’s line? 

Hot weather running, dry and arid hiking and travelling, training in the summer when the weather goes from warm to hot, our shirts keep you cool.  And of course, beach and fun in the sun!

Can the SMARTee’s line be used as workout shirts? 

Yes.  SMARTees make great gym shirts and are very comfortable to work out in.  The cool black shirts will keep the sweat down maximizing your time in the gym or activity.

Whether you're on vacation, looking for mens gym shirts or just trying to survive the summer heat, these SMARTees will keep you cool and comfortable. Are you ready to try the most comfortable t-shirt you have ever owned?
