37.5 Technology was initially used in activewear to help regulate the core temperature and relative humidity for people with bursts of high-energy output. Designers are now using this fabric technology across a wide spectrum of categories, including sleep, travel apparel, business wear, and leisure items. 37.5 Technology uses active particles that capture and release moisture vapor, which means the fabric helps maintain the optimal core temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius, and the body’s optimal relative humidity of 37.5 percent.
The activated particles are permanently embedded into the very fabric of the clothing, which means that they won’t wash out. The particles attract and expel moisture through a reaction that vaporizes the water almost immediately, keeping the skin cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. You can delve even deeper into the science behind this, but just know that those particles are activated when the temperature and relative humidity swing too far in either direction.
This is great news for people traveling to destinations with potential swings in weather or otherwise unpredictable conditions. Warmer than expected? No sweat—literally. Temperature dropping more than you anticipated? The embedded particles in the fibers of these clothes will spring into action, helping bring your core temperature back up to the optimal 37.5 degrees Celsius. Here are some top picks for clothes to bring on your next vacation to stay comfortable, look stylish, and not need to change layers every hour of the day.
