Can we please have all of our clothing made out of this cool fabric coating now? We tried out a t-shirt from Ably that’s made with Filium, an amazing fabric treatment that repels liquids. Check out this video, where I poured water on to the shirt–it beads up and leaves the shirt completely dry.
Price and Where to Buy Ably: Available for pre-order on Ably’s Kickstarter page, starting at $40 for a shirt
How Ably Rates:
- Usefulness: 10/10. Never worry about stains again! It also repels odor and moisture, so you can wash your clothes less often.
- Value: 6/10. Some of the lower level price options on Kickstarter are sold out, but you can still pre-order for a reasonable cost.
- Durability: You could pour a glass of red wine all over this white shirt and it will just run right off!
- Cool Factor: I’m mesmerized by this technology–this would be a game changer for travel if more clothes were made with Filium.
Final Verdict: We can’t wait to see this innovative fabric coating hit the market!
