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”.
XOSKIN™ VS THE COMPETITION
Highest Rated: Wicks Faster, Dries Faster, Reduces Skin to Fabric Friction, Inhibits Odor and Helps with Skin Wellness
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.
