How To Chose The Right Fabric For Your Jerseys.
When it comes to performance garments there are many considerations on what works best for your team. Choosing the right fabric is crucial to how you feel and ultimately perform in your jersey.
Weight, stretch and durability are three key components you should be looking at when picking the right fabric. At GAIA we offer a variety of different fabrics, all the same great quality at the same price.
(125g/m, 100% FLOtech Polyester)
If you are playing in hot or humid conditions you want to go for the lightest, most breathable fabric. One of the lightest, best wicking, most breathable, almost indestructible and therefore the most highly coveted team fabrics. FLYweight fabric does not pull or pill or lose its colour. If you are looking for an ultra thin and breathable fabric for hot summer activities, this is your fabric. The subtle waffle texture gives this fabric a more technical feel.
(145g/m2, 100% FLOtech Polyester)
Playing in warm conditions, or looking for a layer piece in the fall/winter season? Very light and breathable, combining performance with a nice silky smooth finish. This very durable fabric does not pull, pill or lose its color. We recommend this fabric for sublimation due to its smooth texture to optimize the clarity of your sublimated art, graphics and numbers.
(180g/m2, 92% FLOtech Polyester/8% Spandex)
PROstretch is a thin performance fabric that is ideally suited for shorts and form-fit long sleeve shirts. The incorporation of 8% Spandex (or Lycra) provides multi-directional stretch that increases range of motion and provides a free feeling that cannot be matched by fabrics without Spandex. It has a similar feel and thickness to our SILKtouch fabric with a little extra weight resulting from the addition of integrated the Spandex yarns.
(280g/m2, 100% FLOtech Technical Polyester)
Need to stay warm? FLOStretch, HEAVYweight is a heavyweight fabric with multi-directional performance, a soft hand, subtle shine and excellent durability. It is recommended for our 1/4 or full zip warm up tops or warmup pants. FLOStretch fabric does not pull or pill or lose its color. Stretch warm up pieces make the perfect second layer piece for training or team uniforms.
