How does Micro-mesh work?

Micro-mesh is fabric that is made of small holes and made with 100% polyester. The small holes improve airflow and create a lightweight option that helps you move better every day.

Mesh fabric is made from polyester, which is perfect for any kind of workout in any type of weather. It’s durable and the height of fitness fabrics. 

While lightweight, polyester is a great insulator, making it a great choice of cold weather workout gear and keeping you warm throughout your entire workout.

Benefits of Micro-mesh

Most athletic fabric is made of micro-mesh, meaning it works great for any kind of movement.

Micro-mesh is:

  • Durable
  • Wrinkle resistant
  • Moisture wicking
  • Breathable
  • Lightweight

Micro-mesh does have drawbacks. Polyester, like any synthetic fabric, has the capability to foster bacterial growth, and to hold onto odors better than organic or natural fabrics. This makes it hard to keep dirty workout clothes around for long without a wash. 

Caring for Micro-mesh

Micro-mesh must be cleaned regularly to keep the clothes in great condition to wear over and over again. 


Wash micro-mesh in a laundry bag to reduce snags and tears on the fabric. Apart from this, micro-mesh can be washed like any other fabric with any detergent. Nothing special required! Don’t use any softener when washing your polyester micro-mesh. Softeners coat the polyester fibers which prevents the clothing from being able to be moisture wicking. 

Drying and Storage

Drying micro-mesh is simple - just hang dry and wait until fully dry to wear again. Using a low heat dryer is also a viable option. Heat is the enemy of elasticity - once fabrics get hot, the fibers in them are stretched and can decrease the life of your garment. Be sure to always check the label on your item! Of course, the moisture wicking type of fabric will always be able to dry quickly, so it’s easier to dry your clothes all around!

Storing micro-mesh clothing is easy, just remember to put them away only once they’re fully dry.
