Science of performance socks

Performance apparel is one of the few bright spots in apparel manufacturing where the US is still at the forefront. This is a short video by performance sock manufacturer Dahlgren that gives a quick primer on the fiber characteristics that affect moisture management. The specific application here is socks but the science behind it is applicable to any apparel you might wear.

Dahlgren sounds Norwegian to me, but the way it is pronounced does not.

Hmm. This advertisement reminds me of all the functional clothing and its blessings that we as consumers had to believe in during the 90ies. And what came out of all these moisture transporting systems? It stinks, literally.
