Contest has professionals report success of high-tech fabric

Uniform service provider rus has sponsored a contest asking HVAC professionals to test its latest uniform fabric, H2NO. H2NO is designed to keep its wearer cool and warm in various seasonal conditions by pulling sweat away from the skin.

Companies can enter by having employees share their sweatiest work story, justifying they're the best candidates to test the high-tech T-shirts. Winners from up to six companies will wear the shirts and report weekly to rus, which will post updates about how its product holds up under sweaty work conditions. Entrants will be selected up to Jan. 15, 2001, but some already are being picked as of November.
