Our Advantage

In 2005, we developed our patented Advanced Protective Fabricâ„¢ (APF) to meet the capabilities the US Military required in a fabric. Since then, we’ve worked from your feedback to improve our already superior product. We invite you to explore the details:

Advanced Protective Fabric Characteristics

Fire Resistant

Garment will self-extinguish once the source of ignition is removed – certified as non-melt and non-drip. Check out this burn test video.

Advanced Moisture Management

APF scored a very high 1855 on Moisture Vapor Transfer Rate testing – comparable to Under Armour®’s Heat Gear.


X-Static technology dramatically reduces the warrior’s body odor and destroys a wide variety of harmful bacteria including Corynebacterium Diphtheriae, Pseudomonas Aeruginosa, Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Staphylococcus Aureus. This technology is effective for the life of the garment.


The fabric can take a 5,000 volt charge and decay it to 500 volts in .01 second – enhancing the wearer’s safety in explosive, fuel-rich environments and protects equipment in sensitive electronic environments.

UV Protective

The fabric helps protect against prolonged UV radiation exposure from the sun.
