High-tech clothes keep hunt comfy

Abstract:
Nanotechnology has allowed manufacturers to accomplish some amazing things with fabric. In the past, clothing companies treated the textiles after they were woven. Today, they can introduce treatment elements much earlier in the process. Some companies are using silver to fight odor.

Using silver as an anti-bacterial agent is not new. Settlers in Australia and the American West used to suspend silver table utensils and silver dollars in their water tanks and milk jugs to retard spoilage. Silver leaf was used during World War I to fight infections in battle wounds.

What is new is the ability to embed the element at the primary level. VisaEndurance infuses a silver ceramic polymer in their base layer fabric which binds to the bacteria in perspiration. With this fabric close to the skin, backcountry hunters can limit the odors they exude even after long, sweaty hikes.
