USWE and Polygiene partner for new running vests
Outdoor and sports brand USWE is starting a partnership with Swedish firm Polygiene to provide running vests that resist odour and last longer.
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 USWEâ€™s patented No
Dancing Monkeyâ„¢ 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 BjÃ¶rk, 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 (â€œyou-swiiâ€)
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.
