About


I created DragynSkyn after 10 years in law enforcement and wearing heavy body armor under my uniform. I would sweat in temperatures up to 110 degrees in the summer in one of the hottest places to live I realized that a moisture-wicking fabric doesn't work for my industry. I discovered when sweat is "wicked" to the surface of the fabric, it has nowhere to go but to be absorbed by the kevlar. With no ventilation due to the body armor being compressed against the body, I believed in order to prevent this problem someone had to invent a new type of fabric technology ... so I did.

 For Those Who Protect , We've Got You Covered, Day & Night

 I started by breaking down how this problem begins and how it needed to be resolved. Sweat is comprised of 98% water and the remaining chemicals and minerals. When sweat accumulates on the skin, naturally occurring bacteria is activated and begins to break down creating the foul body odor that contaminates everything you wear. By engineering a fabric that stretches like compression material but allowing only water vapor to come through leaving the odor-causing bacteria behind, I believed the issue would be resolved. I tested the fabric, manufacturing a compression shirt then wearing body armor over it during long shifts in the summer and year-round for 2 years. The result, a dryer, odor free bulletproof vest.  The testing also revealed advantages not expected. Cooling is increased due to the "vaporizing" action of the fabric allowing airflow to cool the wearer down faster because the sweat is already in vapor form which is what the body needs to cool itself.  Amazing fabric and more amazing apparel brand that takes a step beyond what compression technology has been for sports. DragynSkyn has an opportunity to become a universal brand for people that want to be dryer regardless if its a hard workout at the gym or a high impact shift under body armor. DragynSkyn works as protection and a buffer between your sweat and whatever you wear. DragynSkyn can be worn from the office then to the gym and then directly to your off-duty activities without skipping a beat.

DragynSkyn dries faster, keeps you cooler and keeps you in the game or on the job longer!



DragynSkyn's sweat protection formula makes it the perfect shirt for any scenario. Most AVERAGE compression shirts soak with sweat and the sweat has no where to go if covered by thick body armor or heavy sport attire. Throw away your AVERAGE compression shirt and get the game changer that keeps you in the game!

Originally designed for those that wear body armor due to the extreme heat and sweat that can be produced while working in extreme conditions, I designed this one of a kind apparel to vaporize sweat through the fabric instead of "wicking."

Delivery Expectations

First batch of backer supported orders will be shipped starting in early January 2020. 

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of this project really is the essential primary backing needed by the core audience for DRAGYNSKYN and to manufacture the minimum number of compression style shirts. I hope to overcome this by using an expert marketing team and utilizing targeted marketing strategies (Social media and niche marketing ads.) Because my fabric is currently being manufactured overseas, the risk of manufacturing delays or errors are always a problem in these kind of projects but I have direct communication with my primary manufacturer and am constantly ensuring production quality control at all time during every phase of this campaign.
