MISSION asserts scientists have found the human body uses upwards of 80 percent of its metabolic energy to regulate temperature, leaving significantly less energy for performance, endurance and stamina. The new VaporActive line of apparel for men and women is engineered to help accelerate thermo-regulation, so the body can use its energy more efficiently for performance, the company says.
VaporActive features more than 30 designs, including training shirts, training shorts, sports bras, performance leggings, and a full range of tops, bottoms and compression styles. The company says that VaporActive offers technology that is imbedded in the fabric and won’t wash out and contains odor-capture abilities that last for the life of the apparel.
The company works directly with professional athletes, scientists and medical doctors to develop its apparel geared for performance, safety and comfort. Athletes who helped address design elements for VaporActive include Dwyane Wade, MISSION co-founder and three-time NBA champion, as well as David Villa, Jaelene Hinkle and John Tavares.
Founded by a group of athletes in 2009, MISSION delivers temperature-control technologies designed to maximize athletic performance and recovery. MISSION also supports health and safety initiatives for young athletes.
