1989 Business Week – No-Sweat Wear for Working Out
It was 1989, a time when most people threw on any old short or shirt they had in their closet for their workout. This was just the start of the development of performance fibers, fabrics and workout apparel. HIND was at the forefront of it all.
During the week of September 18, 1989, BUSINESS WEEK featured the HIND Drymax Performance Fabric under its “What’s In” article, No-Sweat Wear for Working Out!
The author, Michele Galen, introduces how “…fitness fanatics are discovering ‘performance fibers’ that give them all the benefits of exertion without the discomfort. The new fibers draw perspiration away from the skin, a process called wicking. The fibers disperse the moisture to the fabric’s surface, where it evaporates. Some of the fibers ‘breath,’ allowing more air to pass through.”
Galen then highlights that, “Hind Performance sells a foul-weather jacket for cycling or cross-country skiing under the name Dryline for $200. The jacket contains, among other fabrics, Hydrofil, a quick-drying absorbent nylon developed in 1987 by Allied Signal.”
