Dragynskyn is designed to be used in apparel such as a compression base layer shirt to protect the clothing a person wears over 90%-99% of the torso allowing only water vapor to ﬁlter through the micro-porous laminate.
The shirt is comprised of fabric with the quality to stretch like normal fabric due to the extremely thin and light laminate-tofabric composition.
The fabric is designed to simply be waterproof, windproof, breathable and feel like a normal compression base layer apparel when worn during high intensity activities during work or play. The body sweats profusely in more areas than just the armpit. Several shirt products are designed to prevent sweat through in the armpit area only.
A common problem in law enforcement or for anyone that wears body armor, no one has created a Base Apparel specifically designed to address this problem.
After years of testing the Base Apparel has shown to not just work for body armor but crosses over to any person needing an extreme sweat resistant compression wear.
Compression wear designed to be worn under body armor it protects your ballistic vest from becoming contaminated with sweat.
DragynSkyn's unique fabric design works like Gore-Tex but in a thin fabric worn as a compression shirt.
It blocks harmful sweat, only allowing water vapor through greatly diminishing, even eliminating the odor and bacteria growth issue on anything you wear over a base layer shirt.
Dragynskyn is the major step forward from where Under Armour started.
Originally designed to be worn under body armor, the fabric is designed to prevent sweat build up by allowing 99% of the water sweat is comprised of to evaporate through the special laminated fabric. This causes an increased cooling effect since the body cools through evaporation of sweat/water from the skin. Conversely, the structure and composition of the 3 layer fabric using medical grade TPU micro porous laminate introduces a level of protection against microbes due to the size of the pores in the laminate, allowing only water vapor molecules to pass through.
The fabric dries quickly due to the hydrophobic quality created by the 3 layered product, preventing the fabric from absorbing large percentage of moisture opposed to moisture wicking fabrics in use today for base layer apparel.
The waterproof quality also plays a role in helping keep the skin dry during activities in cold wet weather.
Wet skin causes the body to loose heat, so anything that prevents the skin from getting wet assists in lowering the possibility of hypothermia.
DragynSkyn coupled with base apparel such as compression shirts, compression leggings, compression socks, can be a real “game changer” in the world of active wear hopefully creating a new category for my business, “Extreme Base Apparel.”
The fabric is formed using two pieces of fabric that is laminated with TPU (ThermoPlasticUrethane) in between creating a “sandwich” or what’s called sandwich PUL (Polyurethane laminate).
DragynSkyn's fabric and design combination allows for use in numerous extra curricular activities that cause the wearer to worry about their base layer apparel soaking with contaminates (e.g. dirty water during camping, sweat from others on gyn equipment).
Although not perfect, the fabric composition allows the basic protection from microbial exposure to the skin in direct contact.
Dragynskyn apparel is produced using fabric comprised of the following composition.
• Polyester 75%-85% / Spandex 15%-25%, 175-185 gsm weight
• TPU laminate 0.015 mm - 0.025 mm thickness
Risks and challenges
Right now, we are at the stage of moving into mass production for DragynSkyn after the campaign is successfully completed.
Our estimated delivery date is set for August so we expect no delays given this long lead time.
Good design takes time and experience which we have.
We are in constant contact with our overseas manufacturers to bring you the latest updates.
We will ask for periodic sampling and test out new colors and designs with our manufacturer.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
