About

THE ODOR FREE GYM TEE
THE ODOR FREE GYM TEE

Conception

Buffer was conceived when three fitness fanatics were chatting post-workout about how the fitness clothing industry just wasn't meeting our needs. Our phones, watches, and other gadgets are all updated with the latest technology, so why weren't we given smarter clothing options as well?

The Problem

Big active-wear brands offer a ridiculous amount of options, which all have the same problem. They stink. Literally. After a long workout, pickup game, or run, the shirts smell terrible! Even after multiple washes, these odors can remain for the lifetime of the garment.

Normal Shirts Stink!

Our Solution

We decided to create Buffer, a brand that delivers only the highest quality functional performance apparel. 

In order to do this we were laser focused in three key areas: Functionality. Quality. Design.

After months of hard work designing, sourcing the highest quality fabric, and identifying the best manufacturer for our goals. In the process, we identified technology used in hospitals that could be applied to fabric and create an odor free, antimicrobial gym tee. We then created the most advanced fitness shirt available: Buffer

 Buffer Is:

  • Odor Resistant: Copper ions are permanently infused in our nylon/spandex fabric creating a 99% antimicrobial shirt.
  • Quick Dry/Moisture Wicking: Our fabric is knit so that sweat and moisture is pulled from the inside and brought to the outside, so it can evaporate as fast as possible. 
  • Comfort Fit: We've designed the shirt to rest closely to your body, allowing our fabric's 4-way stretch to give you full range of motion for any activity.
  • Flatlock Seams: The shoulder and side seams are stitched together with no seam allowance, meaning they rest flat on the body, without extra fabric, giving you a comfortable chafe-free wear.

How Our Odor Free Fabric Works

Copper nanoparticles are permanently bonded to our nylon/spandex fabric through electroplating, which causes the fabric to be 99% antimicrobial. Copper attacks microbes in a three step process.

1. Air combined with moisture causes the copper in your shirt to oxidize, which releases copper ions (No, your shirt won't turn green like your old pennies).

2. The copper ions directly interact with the outer surface of the microbe's bacterial membrane, which causes the membrane to rupture.

3. Once the bacterial membrane ruptures, the cell loses vital nutrients and water, which causes the microbe to weaken. This thwarts the ability for the bacteria to mutate and reproduce, thus leaving the shirt 99% microbe-free.

Our Quality Tests

We've gone as far as ENSURING they are as odor free as can be. No other company is as transparent with this.
