Hi guys,

as I was browsing along the web and decided to visit Potomac Field Gear's website and take a look at their shirts. While I checked out the features of the Advanced Combat Shirt GEN II this feature caught my attention:

"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."

Now I'm curious.What do they mean with "effective for the life of the garment" in the bold sentence?
Are they saying that bacteria destroy fabrics and if we dont clean our plate carriers, pouches, uniforms etc. that bacteria will eat them until the only thing left ist dust?


Regards

It means your shirt won't smell like sweaty death after wearing it. It'll still stink but not as bad asthe Army Combat Shirt, for instance.

Sounds like a language interpretation/translation issue :P As someone who's not native to the english language, I know that feel ;)

It does not make the garment last longer.
It means that this technology is built in and does not need to be re-applied regularly.

For instance, a lot of products that shield rain only do it because of a spray-on or wash-in water repellent. These need to be re-applied from time to time.
