Wet hands turn into cold hands very quickly. Hunt Monkey’s exclusive 3-way DRY-TEC waterproofing process ensures your hands will stay dry!
It starts with DWR (durable water repellent) which is a coating or finish that is applied to the outer fabric so it repels water. A waterproof/breathable membrane will stop water from penetrating to the inside of your gloves but a DWR is also needed to prevent moisture from saturating the exterior glove fabric. Without DWR the exterior fabric will become waterlogged and heavy.
The composition of modern gloves involves various layers, including a membrane akin to a plastic bag located on the interior, next to the hand. However, that this layer fails to shield the outer layers from water absorption, leading to cumbersome waterlogged gloves that are up to 50% heavier, rendering it difficult to maintain dexterity.
We incorporated protective coatings in the exterior and the interior surface of the fabric to enhance water repellency to the core. So the waterproof membrane now occupies the secondary layer in our gloves, thwarting unwanted moisture intrusion and ensuring optimal dryness for both the insulation and lining layers.
Hipora is a three-layer microporous silicon coating system. The initial layer functions as a barrier to water penetration, boasting pores that possess a diameter of under .5 μm. The smallness of these pores delivers an exceptional impermeable shield.
The intermediate layer’s honeycomb structure facilitates moisture absorption and release. It enables water to infiltrate but expels it out. As such, sweat or moisture accumulation undergoes swift release.
The final layer is the most formidable defensive line against water. This layer is also closest to the skin, thus, providing a critical shield of protection against unwanted water intrusion.
Customers Ask Us:
AREN’T ALL GLOVES BASICALLY THE SAME?
All sun protection is not created equal. Sun protection is a function of two things, the actual weave of the fabric and a fabric treatment that is applied as the garment is being made. The fabrics we use for Fish Monkey gloves feature a much finer weave that better blocks the sun. Then we treat them with sunproofing, which is what the other glove rely on solely for much of the sun protection in their garments. The problem is this treatment wears off, especially with washing. Still, we do treat our gloves anyway figuring this treatment can only help. We call this sun protection system LongHaul Life-of-the-Glove Sun Protection which means our gloves will give you the promised sun protection until they are done.
