According to Lontex – whose products were distributed courtesy of Major League Baseball at last year’s Fan Fest, "Sportswear made with CoolMax® fibers draw moisture away from the body, letting it evaporate through the fabric. As a result, the athlete feels dryer, cooler, more comfortable, and can devote more energy to his performance.

"Cooler than nylon, drier than cotton, more comfortable than any other sports fabric on the market…"

"An important component of sports undergarments is the amount of LYCRA® spandex in the fabric. LYCRA® provides the stretch, freedom of movement and muscle support an athlete needs to prevent pulls and injuries. Lontex uses a powerknit of 70% CoolMax® and 30% LYCRA® spandex in our SWEAT IT OUT® collection for the most efficient cooling and maximum muscle support. Other brands typically contain only 8% to 20% LYCRA®."
