Pitch twelve. You’re some 500 meters above the valley. You've just finished a hard sequence when drops of sweat roll off the end of your nose. Finally, you reach the belay and bring your partner up. Now for the crux pitch. Alpine climbing involves periods of intense activity followed by short rest periods. You need functional fabrics that can quickly and reliably transport sweat away from the body to prevent you from overcooling during breaks. In addition to a fabric that transports sweat away, you also need a fabric that has UV protection on hot days - especially when you're in high mountain areas. Dryton is SALEWA®’s proprietary, high-performance synthetic functional fabric. It transports moisture rapidly away, is lightweight yet robust, comfortable to wear and easy to care for. Dryton comes in a range of different blends, constructions, thicknesses and is also available with high UV protection. SALEWA® uses Dryton to make base layers, mid layers, pants and shorts.
