Publish date: 13 May 2016

Leading Odor Control Technology provider ensures freshness for more best-in-class outdoor and sports brands in 2016. ”Malmö, Sweden (May 10, 2016) – Polygiene®, the world leader in odor control and freshness technologies, is pleased to announce three new brand partners in the outdoor industry for the Spring 2016 season including Dakine, Adidas and Propper. Patagonia, La Sportiva, Athleta, Warrior Sports and POC have also expanded their offering of Polygiene-treated products for this season.

Polygiene is a bluesign® approved, silver-salt treatment for textiles. Derived from recycled content (silver mostly from used electronics), Polygiene reduces the need for frequent laundering, saving water and energy as well as time over the life cycle of apparel.

“Each of our partners has a unique perspective and  line of products,” says North American Marketing Director, Colleen Nipkow.

“Polygiene technology is a strong part of the brand  story and we are proud to be incorporated into such exceptional collections.”

Dakine has partnered with Polygiene on several new mountain bike products including the Oakridge Flannel (MSRP $80) and Thrillium Jersey (MSRP $50). Designed to be worn both on and off the trail, the Oakridge Flannel, the first flannel on the market to incorporate Polygiene, transitions easily from bike to bar. The Thrillium Jersey is made of quick drying polyester to wick away sweat and keep riders feeling fresh even on the longest rides.

Adidas has added itself to the list of Polygiene brand users, a partnership Polygiene is particularly excited to announce. Several adidas products now feature Polygiene, including the Techfit Base Tee (MSRP $28), the ideal training t-shirt for year round fitness. The Techfit compression design supports muscles while climalite® fabric sweeps away sweat and UPF +50 UV protection blocks sun.

Propper. Partnering with Propper on the launch of their high-performance base layers designed for use by military and first responders, Polygiene now brings odor-control to service members. The Propper Midweight Base Layer Top and Bottom (MSRP $29.99) both feature Polygiene treatment that prevents odor and stands up to tough wear and tear.

POC has introduced several key new products with Polygiene technology, including the Tectal Helmet (MSRP $190) and the Resistance Strong Jersey (MSRP $100). The Tectal offers more coverage than conventional mountain bike helmets and has a highly efficient ventilation design developed for aggressive trail riding. The Resistance Strong Jersey features excellent moisture management and UV protection in addition to Polygiene anti-odor treatment.
