InSport heat-resistant t-shirts for marines

02
Aug '06
In a reaction to field reports from Iraq and Afghanistan of garments melting under the heat of exploding IEDs and roadside bombs, the Marine Corps sought a garment that offers heat resistant capabilities.

Under the terms of the contract, Beaverton-based InSport will produce two T-shirts designed to meet the unique needs of Marines in physical training.

InSport International has received a US $2 million contract to provide special athletic T-shirts and will supply 87,000 short-sleeve Performance T-shirts and 11,000 long-sleeve Defender T-shirts.

InSport's Performance T-shirts are designed to replace cotton T-shirts.

Incorporating Polartec Power Dry fabric, the Performance T-shirt offers moisture management capabilities.

The Defender T-shirt additionally was designed for the changing needs of the Marines and serves as a first step in development of a garment for use in combat operations.

InSport's newly engineered heat resistant Defender T-shirt incorporates moisture removing Polartec Power Dry with anti-microbial X-Static fabric on the chest and back with heat resistant textiles.

Company reported military sales to have doubled this year and plans expanding its manufacturing operations in Oregon.
