Royal Robbins® launches “Beat the Heat” brand campaign with innovative fabric technologies


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (July 27, 2016) —Royal Robbins announced the launch of a major new brand campaign – “Beat the Heat” with four innovative fabric technologies for Spring 2017: Wick-ed Cool™, Cool Mesh, Diablo and Hempline™.


“Royal Robbins’ trademarked Go Everywhere® versatility blends four distinct hot weather performance fabrics with lifestyle silhouettes to enable our consumers to stay cool in outdoor and urban environments,” said Liz Braund, vice president of merchandising and design for Royal Robbins. “With Royal Robbins, you show up prepared and confident that your clothing will work for you and look good no matter what the situation.”

Wick-ed Cool™

Constant body temperature is essential for wellness and comfort. Royal Robbins’ new bluesign® approved Wick-ed Cool technology wicks moisture away while actively cooling the body for optimal temperatue regulation in hot weather. The fabric’s built-in thermoregulation agent actively reduces body temperatures, ensuring the wearer’s comfort even in the hottest of climates and most active of adventures. 

Cool Mesh

The Cool Mesh collection blends the all-natural breathable comfort of cotton with an open weave construction that looks great and feels better. It increases ventilation in hot, hot climates.


Royal Robbins’ versatile Diablo collection keeps you cool in the toughest conditions. Eco-conscious, corn-derived Sorona® fibers give this breathable moisture wicking fabric a soft hand durability and a hint of stretch, making it ideal for active travel. The collection features subtle engineered perforations into the already breathable fabric for superior ventilation. Diablo uses bluesign® approved fabrics.


Hempline rounds out the Beat the Heat collection with eco-conscious, anti-microbial and durable designs. Hemp requires little irrigation, no pesticides and it replenishes the soil. Royal Robbins’ blends its hemp with organic cottons and recycled polyesters to keep you cool, odor-free and walking lightly on the planet.
