Garments interpose between heat produced by the body and environmental conditions. Too much or too little insulation renders the garment unsuitable. We measure the insulation performance with laboratory instrumentation so that the garment user can make the right choice for his environment.
The body produces moisture during exercise. The ability of a garment to transfer moisture to the environment will determine its suitability for a range of activities. We can measure this ability for all kinds of garments including those labeled "breathable/waterproof".
Skeptical outdoor enthusiasts must be convinced that even the best new product performs as claimed. Our test procedures result in effective visual and quantitative displays that provide compelling proof of performance. This proof is enhanced by our objective, 3rd party testing status.
