DriClime® Moisture Management Technology is a family of uniquely plaited bi-component knit fabrics engineered to mechanically draw moisture away from your skin to keep you dry, warm and comfortable.

The key to DriClime is 3-Dimensional Wicking. As moisture moves from the inner fabric touching your skin to the outer fabric, it spreads out across the outer fabric to speed the drying process. DriClime never stops working; it continually passes moisture through to the outer surface for fast evaporation. It is not a finish that washes or wears out; it works forever.

DriClime technology is available in a wide range of products: shelled microclimate layers, base layer, gloves, sleeping bags and backpacks.

Rob RicksGreat all-around jacket

Voted 5/5

Great jacket for intense activity. It worked perfectly as an outer layer for summer climbing. It will be an excellent mid layer for cooler climates. I was max heart rate and climbing for all I was worth with a full load to outrun a lightning storm. Despite this in above freezing temps, I did not overheat. I bought this jacket on clearance and it is worth every penny.

Voted 5/5

This is the best layer I've ever owned. I bought it as a wind shell, but it turned out to be quite warm by itself. I've started carrying a 100-weight fleece and the driclime instead of a 300-weight fleece. Saves weight, gives more layering options, is more windproof, and breathes better. Well worth the price.
