Patagonia Base Layers Feature Polygiene® Antimicrobial

Outdoor apparel retailer Patagonia Inc., Ventura, Calif., has selected Sweden-based Polygiene AB's Polygiene® antimicrobial fabric finish for use in its fall 2013 Capilene® base layers and trail running base layers.

Polygiene's bluesign®-approved technology is based on silver salt derived from recycled silver and offers permanent odor control. It can be applied at any stage of production to a variety of textiles and surfaces, and can reduce the need for frequent laundering, Polygiene reports.

"Effective, long-lasting odor control extends the useful life of our Capilene® Performance Baselayers," said Todd Copeland, Environmental Product Specialist, Patagonia. Polygiene meets our strictest laboratory requirements and performs excellent[ly] in field use."
