Zenkai Apparel Highlights
- fabrics repel water and liquids, making Zenkai a natural performance apparel for those that make their living outdoors, in the elements
- perfect for travelling on tours as can be worn multiple times without washing
- no smell for the life of the garment.
- keeps your body cooler in hot temperatures and warmer in cool temperatures
- improves athletic performance by enhancing our body’s sweat management system. Scientific studies have shown how vital sweat is in cooling our body during activity
Zenkai’s revolutionary performance technology, Filium®, is the ultimate synergy of natural fibers and performance technology – a code nobody in the performance apparel industry has been able to crack until now.
“The apparel from Zenkai is second to none. Both the comfort and performance make it the best workout gear I’ve ever worn. Caddying on the PGA Tour keeps me on the road for about 30 weeks a year, so the odorless technology makes Zenkai the ideal gear to travel with. The Raglan top is my favorite shirt to workout in and the mock 1/4 zip is great for both on and off the course. Also love that it is water repellent. Excellent product I definitely recommend trying it out!”
