A founding base for our brand has been research and development into fabrics fit for the job of working with you on your outdoor adventures.
We worked with a U.S. based fabric mill to develop our flagship Sterling™ fabric that combines quick drying all season base layer performance that is buttery soft, not cold to the touch, breathable and permanently anti-microbial for odor control. Read on to find out more about Sterling™ and the other fabrics we offer.
Since each of our products feature fabrics that have unique properties and characteristics, we created information tags for each one. We summarized this information below. Thanks for taking the time to read about what fabrics mean to us here at Alpine Fit.
silver odor resistant fabric
This fabric contains silver fibers which makes this product anti-odor. Wear this product over & over again between washes without stink! The silver properties are permanent & will never wash out, even after years of use!
The silver is permanently in the fiber of the fabric - it is not a chemical that was washed in, so it will not wash out. The silver is uniquely combined with a quick drying fiber to give quick drying technical performance and permanent anti-microbial = anti-odor functionality. Wear tested on multi-day and multi-week camping trips in Alaska. Sterling™ passes the challenge of keeping body odor build up at bay.
recycled material fabric
Alpine Fit is proud to offer fabrics made from recycled fibers. We strive to responsibly source materials and refine sustainable practices, products, and packaging. We are continually enhancing our commitment to the environment, driven by our love of the outdoors!
soft odor resistant fabric
This fabric is made with amino acids from recycled ocean materials, namely fish scales! Serendipitously, this fish-y fabric is soft to the touch and combats odors, making it good for many wears between washes. These properties are permanent, meaning they will never wash out, even after years of wear.
Natural odor-resistant fabric
There’s not much more to say about merino wool than you may already know! Merino wool is sort of a miracle fiber, natural, odor-resistant, fine in texture and therefore ultra soft, breathable and helps with temperature regulation. Our wool is ethically produced from non-mulesed merino wool sheep.
