Adidas Yocum Line Features Nano-Tex Technology

Germany-based apparel and sports gear
manufacturer adidas — a brand of adidas-Salomon AG — has added Coolest Comfort moisture-management
treatment from Emeryville, Calif.-based Nano-Tex to adidas’ line of Yocum activewear.

Coolest Comfort’s moisture-wicking properties are featured in the line’s men’s and women’s
pants, capris and shorts, which are made of cotton-touch Ottoman Polyamide nylon. The patented
treatment brings performance and durability to resin-treated cotton and man-made fabrics while
enhancing the comfort and feel of fabrics, Nano-Tex reports.

“Our treatments prove that activewear doesn’t need to feel stiff, stuffy or uncomfortable to
provide advanced performance characteristics that last the life of the garment,” said Libby Neuner,
senior vice president, apparel sales, Nano-Tex.
