Home to some of the hottest and most humid places on the planet, the equator carves through dense tropical jungles, warm seas, and crowded cities. Instead of seasons or temperature changes you’re more likely to be hit by a wall of heat, sun, rain and humidity. But as global temperatures rise and climate zones shift, designing clothing for the equator is like designing for our future.

So our Equator gear is built to keep you comfortable in all 40,000km of one of the most extreme environments we currently inhabit, and one that’s set to grow. The Equator T Shirt is made from one of the lightest and softest fabrics on the planet – 100% Pima cotton. The silk-like fibres of Pima cotton are much longer and stronger than normal cotton, so they make a much softer, smoother, and more durable t shirt.

As temperatures rise, you’ll find it’s highly breathable, lightweight, fast drying and cooling next to your skin.

Pima cotton is super soft and strong

The fine strands that make up a raw piece of cotton are called staples, and the longer these strands are, the stronger and silkier the cotton will be. Pima cotton is one of the few types of cotton which has extra long staples. On a practical level it means there are fewer edges when the fibres are knitted into fabric, because there are fewer strands. And this is what produces a material that’s really soft and really strong at the same time.

The cotton is mercerised to keep you cool

In hot and humid conditions, the last thing you want is for your clothes to cling to you and stick to your skin, so the Equator T Shirt goes through a process called mercerisation. Designed to make the t shirt feel even smoother and silkier, it also helps it hold its shape and structure in the heat. So instead of sticking to you, it’s designed to keep a gap between your skin and the material, so that air can still move between your body and the t shirt to help cool you down.

It’s ultralight and fast drying from rain and humidity

Humidity and rainstorms are going to soak you one way or another at the equator, so the key is about drying really fast, rather than trying to avoid getting wet. The t shirt is ultra lightweight at 130 grams, so it dries quickly. It means the shirt is at home in a rainforest as it is in the city.
