As global warming does not decay, functional textiles with moisture/thermal management performance are becoming more and more important. In this paper, a cationic hydrophilic polymer (CHIP) was developed, and combined with flexible and simple coating methods to achieve durable moisture/thermal management of polyester fabrics. The as-prepared fabrics exhibit excellent washing fastness, and the wettability of the coated fabrics can withstand 150 home laundry cycles. Owing to its firm fixation, the methods of single-side spraying and templated-spraying were adopted to achieve water/sweat unilateral penetration or directional transport through polyester fabrics, which realizes the timely and directionally transport of sweat as well as thermal in fabrics. This work is useful for the design of high-performance moisture/thermal management fabrics for various applications, e.g., quick-dry sportswear, outdoor uniforms, and other functional garments.
