USWE and Polygiene partner for new running vests


USWE is expanding the products in its Pace range of advanced running vests, with the Pace 2 and the Pace 8, for spring/summer 2021. The vests in the Pace series are treated with Polygiene BioStatic Stays Fresh technology from Polygiene. The technology inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria and stops the odour at the source, permanently. It therefore reduces the number of times a product needs to be washed or cleaned, saving energy, time and money, as well as prolonging the lifespan of the vest.

Both vests feature USWE’s patented No Dancing Monkey™ Vest Harness System, which holds the vest snug while allowing for a full range of motion and no restrictions on breathing during high levels of activity, meaning longer and more comfortable runs.

Jacob Westerberg, CEO, USWE said that, they are looking at this first project together with Polygiene as the first of many exciting projects. The Polygiene treatment of their running vest series Pace will make the lifespan of the products longer and reduce the impact on the environment significantly.

According to Ulrika Björk, CEO, Polygiene, USWE has a unique offer due to their patented and user-friendly harness system for backpacks and hydration packs. They share the same values in terms of sustainability and prolonging the life of gear and equipment.

Founded in 2007, USWE (“you-swii”) designs bounce-free backpacks and hydration packs for Mountain biking, Trail Running, Speed hiking, Skiing and Off-road Motorcycle riding. 

As the world leader in stays fresh technologies, Polygiene treats clothes, accessories, home products, and textiles to help people stay fresh, wash less and let clothes and products live longer.
