Patagonia® Capilene® With Gladiodor™
Fabric: Capilene® Polyester Baselayer
Patagonia® Capilene® is still a moisture-wicking polyester fabric that keeps you warm even when wet and dries quickly. Now, Capilene Polyester is also recycled, recyclable and features Gladiodor™ natural odor control.
Technology: Gladiodor™ Natural Odor Control
The story
Most companies use heavy-metal (silver) ions to kill the bacteria that causes odor in their clothing:
  • Heavy metals are a major groundwater pollutant
  • Heavy metals are not safe for human ingestion
  • Bacteria can build resistance to silver
These risks were unacceptable to Patagonia®, so they developed a safe, nonpolluting alternative:
  • Gladiodor™ natural odor control comprises naturally derived amino acid chains
  • Gladiodor™ technology kills odor-causing bacteria
  • Gladiodor™ technology is nonpolluting and safe for humans
  • Gladiodor™ natural odor control is durable
