Boulder, Colo.-based Outlast Technologies LLC, developer of Outlast® temperature-regulating
technology and phase-change materials (PCMs), reports that MyKool Inc. — a Bedford, Pa.-based
tactical and performance sports apparel company — has selected Outlast technology for use in its
PCM Base Layer apparel collection.
The MyKool™ Outlast collection features Outlast’s proactive temperature regulation and
moisture-management performance combined with antimicrobial properties; a raglan design with flat,
double-stitched seams; and a longer bodice to help eliminate seam stacking and keep shirts from
coming untucked or rolling up. The base layers are designed for athletes as well as for law
enforcement, military and emergency services personnel to wear under their uniforms.
“Our research respondents within different industries said they wanted clothing that moved
with them and didn’t bunch, had longer cuffs and tails, actively managed moisture, moderated
temperature swings, retained its shape and performance after washing and met industry standards for
safety and fire protection,” said Michael Swartzwelder, president, MyKool. “Through our partnership
with Outlast, our base layers are able to meet this demand with a state-of-the-art innovation that
provides practical comfort by managing the build-up of heat before you begin sweating.”
MyKool Outlast base layers provide a 34-percent reduction in perspiration and can reduce
sweat by 10 grams, the companies report.
