TRAINING IN HOT CONDITION
You’ve no doubt experienced that feeling of exhaustion in the summer when you’re running on a trail or climbing on a path exposed to the sun. You feel enveloped by the heat and drained of energy. This is the typical result of our body’s overheating when it can no longer regulate its temperature. In these conditions we burn an incredible amount of energy simply in attempting to lower the body temperature through sweating. This means, though, that our trail running or fast hiking soon depletes our energy, and the enjoyment ends just as quickly.
To remedy this situation, we’ve created MOVED TECHNOLOGY, a project in collaboration with Polartec.

We’ve combined the experience of Polartec, a leader in the production of innovative and sustainable textile solutions, with the traditional expertise of Karpos in developing gear that makes it possible to go to the mountains, increasing everyone’s freedom. This translates into comfort and enjoyment in what we’re doing.
We’ve brought together the incredible performance of Polartec® Delta fabric with our ability to build ergonomic garments, and the result is the Moved Jersey.
Polartec® Delta® is a recycled fabric that works in contact with the skin and enables our body to regulate its temperature during physical activity, wicking away most of the moisture produced by perspiration but retaining a small percentage of it in contact with the skin. This prevents the overheating that generates excessive sweating. So longer runs or more rewarding hikes.
This is the genius of Polartec® Delta.
For all this to take place, it’s essential that the garment have a construction that optimally follows the shape of our body, so the Moved Jersey’s ergonomics allow for the best surface contact of the fabric on the skin.
Adhere to the body without compressing. Remain in contact with the skin without constricting.
This is the genius of Karpos.
Our athletes, the ski mountaineers from the Italian Army Sports Center of Courmayeur in particular, have made a significant contribution to the realization of this project. For years they have experienced firsthand the performance of Karpos garments in Polartec®, which they wear in competition and in winter training. They were the most rigorous testers of the MOVED TECHNOLOGY project, together with the enthusiastic trail runners who raced the Delicious Trail and received the Karpos technical T-shirt in Polartec® Delta in their race packet.
An exceptional synergy involving many factors. Manufacturing capability. Research and development. Refinement and testing. All brought together to create an unparalleled product offering incomparable comfort: Karpos Moved Jersey in Polartec® Delta.
A technical T-shirt in men’s and women’s versions, precisely because an ergonomic fit is necessary in combination with the functionality of the fabric. This will enable everyone to have the perfect garment for their upcoming summer outings full of sun and joy in the great outdoors.
