Cool Base Performance Technology New Eras has three main factors:
1) revolutionary phyllite
2) supreme drying
3) resistant to shrinkage
How are New Era caps with Cool Base Performance technology different from other New Era 59Fifty caps?
The main difference is the material. On-Field Collection hats with Cool Base Performance technology are made from 100% polyester, while most other New Era hats are made from 100% wool or a 70/30 wool / cotton blend.
Polyester is a synthetic material used to make various garments, mainly from a mixture of cotton and polyester. Here are some benefits of using polyester:
1) Polyester dries quickly
2) Polyester retains its shape better
3) Polyester is more resistant to mold and mildew damage
For major league baseball players and other athletes, it’s easy to see why the New Era makes its On-Field Collection hats made of polyester. New Era polyester caps with Cool Base Performance technology are ideal for MLB players and other athletes because of the extreme conditions in which they play. Polyester helps:
* hats dry quickly in hot conditions, when the cap is likely to spill sweat, and in rainy and cold conditions.
* hats do not shrink. New Era hats are mostly custom, so under the influence of sweat or water woolen or cotton hats will shrink.
* hats stay in shape through games, workouts, throwing them in lockers and stuffing the bottom of sports bags.
* caps retain color better.
When making polyester garments such as New Era caps, you need to take very thin threads of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) that are woven or knitted to provide maximum flexibility.
Combining thin polyester fibers with the sewing quality that New Era provides, you will notice that New Era caps, made by Cool Base Performance technology, have a smooth and silky feel.
