Performance fabrics enhanced with HeiQ XReflex maintain warmth with up to 50% less insulation for reduced bulk, making it the perfect solution for outdoor and sports jackets, pants and skirts, lifestyle jackets and coats, as well as sleeping bags.
  Hydroflex® - Hydroflex® is a polyurethane-based coating from Consoltex that creates a durable, waterproof, breathable, wind-resistant finish for nylon or polyester. Important end-uses include jackets and outerwear.
  Hygro™ - Moisture-responsive fabrics produced through the use of the Hygro™ process. In this research, the reversible dimensional changes of hygroscopic yarns are utilized to develop responsive fabric structures which widen or narrow their openings depending on moisture content. The process is also used to make terry toweling fabric. In this process, the pile yarn is woven with cotton weft and warp yarns to produce terry fabrics. The fabric is then washed in warm water to dissolve the PVA fibers. By dissolving the PVA fibers, a hollow air space is produced throughout the pile yarn, corresponding to an increase in the air space in the pile yarn. By increasing the air space in the pile yarn, the resulting towels are softer and bulkier than standard cotton towels.
  HYGY™ - This group of patented single layer fabrics, produced by King Tech Industries, have multiple functions including super- strength, light weight, breathable, water-repellant, water- resistant, temperature tolerant, color fastness, anti-abrasion, anti-germ, anti-mosquitoes, non-toxic, and recyclable.
