What is KoreDry?

KoreDry™ fabric is a revolutionary technological advancement for water sports. This material when immersed in water will remain dry at the fiber’s core enabling the garment to continue insulating and while out of the water, dry incredibly quick.

We make KoreDry™ garments in both a nylon lycra stretch fabric that fits like a rashguard and a 100% nylon non stretch fabric (we actually took out stretch and give) so it is designed to fit loose. Since it has minimal stretch and doesn’t absorb water, it won’t get as baggy as a t-shirt, making it the ideal surf shirt for the tropics or for any one who does not like wearing tight fitting shirts in and out of the water. tested at UPF 50+ (equal to SPF 150+!) factor both wet and dry giving it a rating you can depend on to protect your skin against the damaging rays of the sun when in or out of the water.

The KoreDry series incorporates the new Satin Seam technology into its shirts. The Satin Seam thread consists of microfilament textured yarns that create an unmatched buttery soft feel. 

The Victory® Brand is rooted in the 20th Century when its famous surf team – led by four time ASP/IPS World Champion Mark Richards from Australia and leading edge wetsuit technology, made it one of the most recognized trademarks in the world. It’s 1980 Katin Pro/Am Team Challenge Champion Team comprising of Richards, Michael Ho, Hans Hedemann and Michael Tomson dominated the event with Ho winning over MR with Hedemann also in the final finishing fourth. It was the most dominant victory in the event’s history and helped Victory become one of the most visible surf brands of the time.

Technical innovation has always been at the forefront of Victory®, launching glued and blind-stitched seamed products to the Surf Specialty and Water Sports markets. As larger apparel brands with larger budgets entered the wetsuit business, independents like Victory® faced marketing challenges. Maintaining itself behind the scenes, Victory® successfully manufactured OEM goods for many of those brands and others – particularly in the rash guard / performance apparel category.

About Kathy Dowsett

I believe in protecting our oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as their aquatic life. I respect the work of conservation groups such as Save the Sharks, Save the Sea Turtles and Save our Wrecks. I believe that the use of plastic bags/bottled water should be discouraged as plastic finds its way to the ocean. I also support Diving for the Disabled and Swimming for the Disabled. As a PADI-certified diver, my interest in diving led to the opening in July 2008 of kirkscubagear, my online business. My site offers more than 2,000 products, including freediving, swimming and outdoor equipment. My continuing goal is to encourage diving and offer customers a shopping alternative for the purchase of scuba gear.
