Climb Kilimanjaro With Polarmax

West End, NC (July 5, 2010) — Polarmax technical base layers is proud to announce the Polarmax Ultimate Adventure Mt. Kilimanjaro sweepstakes.  One lucky winner and a guest will get the chance of a lifetime: to climb Mt Kilimanjaro supported, guided and outfitted by Polarmax.

Polarmax, in conjunction with Backpacker Magazine, Cotton Incorporated and Zara Tours, is sending one very lucky person and a guest to Tanzania, complete with air travel, hotel and meals and six full days on Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, with adventurer and Kilimanjaro expert Macon Dunnagan. 

Through practical experience, Polarmax is setting out to prove that cotton can be your friend, even in extreme conditions like those found on Kilimanjaro. By combining the wicking technology and premium hand of TransDRY cotton, you get the benefits of soft, breathable cotton, with wicking and drying rates equal to or better than rival synthetics or wool.  Even when you’re working your hardest, you’ll feel dry and comfortable in TransDRY cotton. As a prominent part of Polarmax’s new All-Year UnderGear collection, TransDRY is revolutionizing what base layer means and how it performs.
