The best thing about every éclipse garment
.... is the fabric ....
éclipse uses two types of fabric; recycled fabric and 37.5® Technology fabric which is patented fabric that embeds activated carbon particles. These particles impart superior performance characteristics.
The performance qualities are ...
~~Nearly 100% sun protection, UPF50+ for the life of the garment, which means it will never wash out, the active particles absorb UV light
~~Cooling you down when you are hot
~~Proven to increase athlete performance. No other fabric technology can claim this.
~~Warming you up when you are cold
~~Removing, capturing and releasing sweat
~~Light, soft, breathable, hypoallergenic, wrinkle resistant
When selecting the fabric color of a garment you are ordering, it is called 'recycled' otherwise it is the 37.5® Technology fabric. Both fabrics are UPF50.
