1. What is dry fit fabric?

Dry fit is a fabric specifically used for sports, made of microfiber, which can quickly transfer sweat from the skin to the surface of the clothes and evaporate. So it has good breathability and can keep the skin dry and comfortable during exercise. Because the composition of the fabric is usually 100% polyester, or a blend of a large proportion of polyester and a small proportion of cotton or spandex, so people often call dry fit fabrics as quick dry polyester.
