For a new range of wet/dry performance apparel line, US-based Xcel Wetsuits has partnered with Canada’s Garmatex Technologies Inc. (GTI) to use its functional fabrics. The range – ‘ThreadX’, is said to have been designed to perform both in and out of the water, with “100 per cent natural” bacteria and odour control properties.

The range of apparel also boasts moisture wicking, fast drying, breath-ability, and lightweight 4-way stretch that maintains shape when wet. Xcel says it’s embedded with microfibres to help regulate core temperature, and is UPF rated to block 94 per cent of UVA/UVB radiation from the sun.

It may be mentioned here that Garmatex Technologies is a developer and supplier of scientifically-engineered fabric technologies to optimize user performance and these advanced fabrics can be used in all apparel and textile categories including active-wear, fashion and industrial applications.
