What is Cotton Dri-Fit & Why Choose It?

At Saltycustoms, we’ve developed a material to marry the best of both worlds (cotton + polyester).

What is Dri-Fit?

The term "Dri-FIT '' was coined and popularized by Nike. It represents the technology developed by Nike for moisture-wicking and quick-drying performance fabrics, typically associated with synthetic materials like polyester (microfiber). Generally, polyester (microfiber) has the properties to keep the wearer dry and comfortable during physical activities by wicking moisture away from the skin and allowing it to evaporate quickly.

Since its inception, Dri-FIT technology has evolved, influencing the entire sportswear industry. It paved the way for advancements in fabric technology, focusing on enhancing athletic performance and comfort. This innovation is now a staple in sportswear, sought after by athletes and fitness enthusiasts for its superior moisture management and comfort during strenuous activities.

Cotton Comfort

Everyone loves a good cotton t-shirt. It has a natural softness and provides comfort like no other material does. Flip side is cotton tends to absorb moisture and retain it, which can make it feel heavy and uncomfortable when worn during intense physical activities. This is why cotton is not usually recommended for performance wear like sports jerseys, workout clothes, or other activities that involve sweating.

Best of Both Worlds: Cotton Dri Fit

At Saltycustoms, we’ve developed a material to marry the best of both worlds (cotton + polyester). Saltycustoms cotton dri fit t-shirts are a perfect blend of comfort and performance for those who demand the best of both worlds.
