MONTANE'S POLYGIENE PRODUCTS

Sweat is a natural response to any physical activity. The cooling and heat dispersing actions of up to 2.6 million sweat glands in the average human body are essential to help us perform and keep us comfortable and able to move Further. Faster. 

Fastpacking: Moving quickly over mountainous terrain, carrying little more than the essentials, sharpens the senses like nothing else. It’s the pursuit of speed and self-sufficiency in remote environments that brought about this latest discipline of running at high altitude.

 

FASTPACKING WITH POLYGIENE

To find out more about this fledgeling form of mountain running, Montane spent some time in New Zealand’s Puhi Puhi Valley, in the South Island’s domineering Kaikoura Ranges, with two of fastpacking’s most passionate participants – Mandy Robinson and Jake Vargo.

Fastpacking is the perfect test for Polygiene's odour control technology. Pushing yourself to achieve impressive distances over multiple days, Polygiene prevents the growth of odour-causing bacteria at the source. To do this Polygiene uses low concentrations of silver salt (silver chloride), which has antimicrobial properties. The treatment is applied at the finishing stages of textile production and field and lab tests show a high level of odour control beyond the usual lifespan of a garment.
