KAOS RFI Sports to outfit female troops

The United States Army has awarded a multi-year contract for advanced sports bras to KAOS Worldwide, a technical apparel company noted for its innovative fusion of performance and comfort. The garments, destined for Army outposts in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the globe, are uniquely designed to provide superior comfort and support while delivering state-of-the-art protection from heat and cold-related illnesses.

The KAOS RFI sports bras were selected by the Army's Program Executive Office (PEO) Rapid Fielding Initiative, which was created to ensure that soldiers are outfitted with the most advanced, technically superior apparel and equipment available. KAOS' garments were subjected to rigorous testing to ensure optimal performance in the most extreme conditions.

KAOS Worldwide is a minority and women-owned enterprise headquartered in Houston. KAOS performance apparel is composed of 100 percent American-made fabrics manufactured and assembled entirely in the USA -- a rarity in today's apparel industry.

"The Army's selection of our RFI sports bra is an extraordinary honor and a tremendous responsibility that we take very seriously," said Bert Emanuel, founder and CEO of KAOS Worldwide. "We are confident that the superior designs we originally developed to improve professional athletes' performance will provide the same benefits to our soldiers as they serve our country."

The KAOS RFI sports bra sets a new standard in comfort, eliminating chafing and skin irritation. The product's straps were modified to prevent seams from digging into the shoulders, while a band below the chest minimizes shifting and binding.

As with other KAOS performance apparel, the RFI sports bra incorporates advanced materials that wick sweat away from the skin and dry quickly. As a result, the garment keeps the wearer cooler and drier when it's hot, and warmer and drier when it's cold.

Founded in 2005 by former star NFL wide receiver Emanuel and his wife Teri, KAOS produces a full line of high-performance apparel for both men and women professionals in a wide variety of arenas, including commercial and industrial markets, health care/medical, public safety, and the armed forces.
