Orca exclusive FeatherLite, is a very light and thin fabric-weighing in at just 80gsm-used specifically on the side panels in the body and in the legs throughout the RS1 range. The second-skin feeling it gives is due to its weight, breathability and moisture wicking. Offers excellent UV protection for its lightweight feel and with it’s Carbon 6 Water Repellent Coating is super fast in the water where you need it.
The Carbon 6 Water Repellent coating is applied to fabrics to reduce their drag when swimming. It does this by preventing water from penetrating the yarn. This means that the water glides over the fabric-reducing resistance and therefore increasing speed. Because water is not able to penetrate the yarn the fabric remains dry and so lighter, maintaining the natural buoyancy of the swimmer. This water repellent coating is applied on all of the RS1 Killa and RS1 Dream Kona styles.
UPF50+ protection means that the fabric is the highest protection a fabric is capable of offering and is rated as Excellent UV Protection. This means that the fabric is reducing your skin’s UV radiation exposure while you’re out there on the course. So you can stay out there for longer without having to worry about sunburn on your skin covered by the garment.
