protection for water sports has become an entire market
by itself. With the ozone layer in the Southern hemisphere
disappearing, protecting yourself from UV has become a focus
of people who enjoy the great outdoors "down under".
Here in the Northern Hemisphere people are getting outdoors
more and living longer. This combination has created a need
for comfortable UV protective clothing for all age ranges.
Cotton and most other natural fibers get damp and stay damp
making the material uncomfortable and saggy. Today's synthetic
fibers are nothing short of amazing. From the simplest 100%
polyester wicking products (quite affordable) to very techy
"smart fabrics" with poly or nylon and Lycra blends
there is a UV protective product to fit the tightest budget
or the most demanding performance athlete.
Compression fit basics- Compression fit products
are those that as the name suggests fit snugly against the
skin. They are usually made of a nylon Lycra blend of 80%
nylon / 20% Lycra (also called elastane). Often called "rash
guards", these are a great for on the field or in the
water applications when the air and water are very warm
(both 85' F+). If the water is warm but the air is below
80' F then a DryGuard™ is a better choice. Made of water
repellent yet breathable nylon Lycra, the DryGuard will
better protect you from wind and UV.

Core Technology™ (ACT™):
DRYSHIRTs™ and DryGuards™
Just when the fabric pundits
declared that there is "nothing new in the market"
and all "Moisture management" products are pretty
much the same, Arid Core Technology comes along and puts
the market on it's ear. Like no other fabric available,
Arid Core Technology™ takes technical apparel to the next
level. Both water repellent and breathable this product
has been described by many professional athletes as a "second
skin". The Hawaii Ocean Safety Officers (Lifeguards)
have adopted the DRYSHIRT™ as their official uniform for
2007 recognizing its superior comfort and protection form
the harsh tropical sun and wind. The DryGuard™ gives the
water borne safety officer better fit and comfort with a
fast drying fabric once they exit the water. With a UPF
factor of 50+ (equivalent to SPF 150+) no other product
on the market gives you better protection from the sun while
remaining so comfortable. The California State lifeguards
and many other water safety agencies throughout the US and
many tropical regions have switched to the Arid Core Technology
products for 2007.
Arid Core Technology simply
has no equal in the market. Effective as a base layer in
severe conditions yet effective enough to be worn alone
to protect from spray, wind and water the ACT™ products
have to be worn to be fully understood. Do not compare this
product with anything else on the market. It stands alone
as a superior level of performance apparel when the conditions
was founded by outdoor enthusiasts. We are dedicated to
producing the most sophisticated technical apparel available
for both the professional athlete and those who are serious
about making the most of their outdoor experience while
mitigating the effects of the elements. With an emphasis
on comfort and protection we design our products to provide

efficient on the market at moisture management. From our
proprietary DRYSHIRTs and DryGuards to the PermawiK channel
matrix system, no other brand offers you the amazing range
of properties like Dry, Inc.
