Additional information from manufacturer



Our Prolite® range is about light, comfortable, easy care travel wear.

Prolite® fabric uses a specialised nylon yarn with a "soft cotton touch" which transfers moisture from the skin to keep you comfortable and dry no matter how hot or humid the conditions. The same technology ensures Prolite® dries quickly by spreading the moisture over the widest possible surface area. Cotton or other nylon and polyester fabrics with water-repellent treatments cannot replicate this performance.

Prolite® requires no ironing. After washing creases and wrinkles quickly drop out with wearing. The Fabric contains a UV inhibitor to improve the sun protection factor and the latest nanotechnology to enhance moisture transferring and odour repelling properties.

Prolite® Shirts use a 100g/m2, UPF* 30, fabric chosen for its lightness and soft handle. All collars, cuffs and pocket flaps have internal fusing to maintain their shape and appearance.

Prolite® Trousers, Shorts and Skirts use a heavier 140g/m2, UPF* 70, stretch fabric. A 6% Lycra® content gives you uninhibited freedom and comfort. We have also found from experience the Lycra® stabilises the nylon and prevents any uncomfortable static cling. We are now using a new DTY nylon (Drawn Texture Yarn) to improve the fabrics pill and abrasion resistance properties.

All the trousers have non pleated flat fronts. The Convertible Trousers have an elastic insert in the waist-band and the Nova, ¾ Nova and Capri pants have adjustable Velcro hip tabs.

The trouser range is divided by two different design styles, Trousers and Convertibles have a classic high rise (waist fitting) and the Jeans, Straights, Capri's and Nova's have a more contemporary lower rise (hip fitting).

All pocket linings use Prolite® fabric to ensure the garment's overall drying and moisture transfer properties are not compromised. All the trouser styles have either a zip-up passport size pocket on the outside leg or on the inside of the right pocket. The waistbands are finished with bar-tacked belt loops wide enough for 40mm belts.

Prolite® Travel Wear is a durable, easy-care, high performance range, designed to take you to the ends of the earth in comfort and style

Garment care

Warm machine wash, mild detergent. Make sure detergent fully dissolved in the water before adding clothes. Separate dark colours. Low spin to prevent fabric stretch. Do not tumble dry, Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Avoid all temptation to iron as creases will fall out with body heat after a few minutes wear. If you absolutely must iron use a very low “touchable” heat. Do not dry clean. Allow up to 3% shrinkage in length of trousers. We recommend you wash your trousers first before shortening.
