For those who drip dry their wicking kit:
How do you dry your kit the fastest?
Surely they are designed to move water either:
i)in one direction - fibre design, or
ii)down the concentration gradient.
So, if i) is true it should be dried 'right way out', if ii) is true it should be frequently turned inside-out to allow for best evaporation.
I know it's not really a paradox but I bet you'd not thought of that one.
