Eddie Bauer Quantum Short-Sleeve T-Shirt – Fans of the outdoors know how moisture and sweat can ruin a day out. Eddie Bauer plans to combat that with their new Quantum Short-Sleeve, the world’s only shirt with a sweat-activated venting system. By using exclusive FreeVent™ Pro active venting technology, which uses moisture-activated polymers in strategic sweat zones, the shirt has polymers that expand to lift open critical airflow channels. These polymers close up when the body begins to cool to allow the sweat to evaporate. It’s pretty neat stuff, and Eddie Bauer pairs it with some laser-cut venting patterns across the front and back.
