COMPARITIVE THIRD PARTY TESTING


XOSKIN™ brings a 21st Century approach to clothing testing

The world of base layers and next to skin products is as complex and varied as the environments they are used in. At XOSKIN™ we have no axe to grind with any of the products that were randomly selected and tested.

At XOSKIN™ we build next to skin base layer products that solve problems and can make a difference in your performance and comfort. We evaluate moisture management, vapor transmission, vapor pressure, temperature regulation, abrasion control, co-efficient of friction, absorbency, skin wellness and comfort using the below test procedures.

We understand testing is not an exact science, however at XOSKIN™ we believe in testing our yarn technologies and knitted fabric constructions vs. doing nothing and simply calling our smart clothing “a big word”.

For all "Thermographic Testing" XOSKIN™ retained the services of Mid Atlantic Infra-Red Incorporated to compare our base layer vs. the competition’s and put each through a series of tests to determine which is worthy of being considered the most versatile for all seasons and for use in aerobic activities.
