How the leather adjusts to the temperature and wicks away moisture. A characteristic of full grain leather.
An important characteristic of a full grain leather. Due to its intact grain and pore structure, full grain leather adjusts to temperature and wicks away moisture and body heat, making it very comfortable to sit on.
The degree to which a fabric, coating or laminate allows moisture vapor to pass through its construction.
The ability of a fabric, coating or laminate to transfer water vapour from one of its surfaces through the material to the other surface. See also moisture vapour transmission rate (MVTR).
A fabric property referring to its ability to allow air to move through a fabric and allow body heat to leave the surface of the skin.
Refers to air flowing through the pores of a fabric.
The ability of the upper to transpire, thereby ventilating the foot.
The ability of air to flow through a material. Airflow is a more effective principal cooling mechanism with clothing fabrics. Moisture vapor transport rate (MVTR), a measure of the static water vapor diffusion rate, is sometimes mistakenly represented as a measure of breathability
