After shipping thousands of pairs around the world, we're back on Kickstarter with a new design, colors (💪🏻💪🏽💪🏿), and a more accessible price point so that now everyone can call bull*** on disposable sheers.
Did you know that the last real innovation in hosiery was the invention of Spandex in 1959? Leading brands are happy selling you a product that they know can disintegrate in a single wear 😠😤. In fact, over 1 billion pairs end up in the landfill each year. We decided enough was enough, so we invented a pair of sheers that is literally unbreakable in the hands of even your strongest friend, but that looks and feels just like traditional sheers. We stand behind our product and every pair comes with a 30 day happiness guarantee.
- Sheertex (formerly Sheerly Genius) brings you the next generation of the World's Toughest Sheers. New design, more colors, improved functionality and a more accessible price!
- Now available in 4 Colors including 3 shades of true to skin tone nudes.
- NEW slimming control top design that isolates our proprietary ballistic fiber to the sheer leg, allowing us to offer this new product at a lower price than EVER before.
- We've incorporated all of your most requested features; a control top, refined sizing, improved catch resistance, and a non-slip waistband.
See our unbreakable knit in action. Watch us put Sheertex Sheers to the test. These sheers really are unbreakable in the hands of your strongest friends. Made from the world's strongest polymer, Sheertex Sheers are the real deal 💪🏻💪🏽💪🏿

Putting Sheertex to the Test
See our tests on "The Other Guys" #FAIL
The Other Guys pantyhose are no match to Sheertex sheers. Watch other sheers #FAIL when put to the same tests as Sheertex.
Sheertex Sheers are measurably different than anything you have ever tried before. We use the world's strongest, ballistic grade polymer, and each pair comes with up to $40 worth of fiber.
Patent pending, Sheertex is stronger, cooler, and lighter than any knit on the market today and our knit is made with the world’s strongest polymer, a miniaturized version of fibers traditionally found in climbing equipment and bullet proof vests.
- Antimicrobial: With a high resistance to bonding to anything, our fiber is naturally antimicrobial, odorless, tasteless, and nontoxic.
- 10x Stronger Than Steel: The tensile strength of our fiber is 4000-6000 which makes it pound for pound ten times stronger than steel.
- Hydrophobic: Our fiber has an absorption rate of virtually zero it is resistant to water and moisture. Our fiber will never lose its strength due to swelling caused by the absorption of water.
- Lighter than Water: Our fiber has an absorption rate of virtually zero it is resistant to water and moisture. Our fiber will never lose its strength due to swelling caused by the absorption of water.
- Cool to the Touch: Our fiber has a high level of crystallinity and molecular mass which gives it excellent temperature conductivity, this quickly transfers heat and creates a cooling effect.
Our sheers look and feel just like a traditional pair of sheers. You'd never know they had wonder woman strength.
Our new design is a butt shaping control top. Light control on the top, and sheer from the mid thigh to the toe. This highly requested style, has been designed in a way that isolates our pricey proprietary fiber to the sheer leg. We've passed that saving on to you, offering this style at a price never before possible on our original design.
This new style also serves as the first time we're ever making our sheers available in NUDE. During our first campaign we had an overwhelming number of requests for nude shades. The problem was that our polymer is not dyeable and had never before been extruded in anything but white, let alone black AND three shades of nude. This was going to be a real challenge for us. So we went back to the drawing board and did a ton more R&D to figure out how create true to skin tone nude shades. And ... we did it!
Here's a look at the 5 colors that will be available when you select your shades once Kickstarter closes. Depending on how many pairs you select as your reward, you will be able to mix and match colors, and sizes when you make your selections.
OUR SIZE CHART:
Since our first Kickstarter we've shipped thousands of our classic pairs of sheers around the world. See what customers are saying about the world's toughest pantyhose.
Building Unbreakable Sheer Pantyhose
When we initially set out to build the world’s toughest pair of sheers it was considered an impossible quest. Most fibers today are either strong or sheer, never both. In order to build an unbreakable sheer knit we knew we needed to look outside traditional apparel fibers like nylons and lycra that have very low tensile strength.
We became inspired by the fibers used in the strongest products in the world like bulletproof vests and climbing equipment. Unfortunately most strong fibers, like kevlar, were actually much too thick for sheer applications.
After a long search, we stumbled upon the world's strongest polymer. It didn’t exist on the market thin enough to build a truly sheer product and all commercially available versions of the fiber were white and non-dyeable, but we believed if we extruded a customer version ourselves we could get it thin enough and in the colors we need to produce a truly remarkable product.
Having the world’s strongest fibers was just the beginning. From there we needed to turn those fibers into a knit. Sheertex is the first sheer knit done using the world's strongest polymer and when we started we broke all the machines. Today, we knit on machines that have been retrofitted to handle the high tenacity of our fibers in our own custom built manufacturing facility.
We were told that trying to make a sheer knit out of our fiber was like trying to “turn peanuts into lemonade.” We took that as a challenge.
Over the last year we've refined our fibers to optimize our knitting process and to improve overall look, feel, and performance, allowing us to bring you a new and improved second generation product.
Every Pair is Made From Scratch in Canada
Sheertex is a Y Combinator backed company, with manufacturing and design operations based between Mountain View, California and Muskoka, Canada. Founded by a team of serial entrepreneurs with a background in manufacturing and textiles; this product delivers on its promises.
Today we are a 16 person team and we produce every pair of unbreakable Sheertex Sheers from scratch at our Canadian lab. Our lab has been designed to handle the world's strongest fibers and has been critical to making Sheertex Sheers a reality.
We are sooo excited to share with you what we have been working on over the last few months; getting you new colors, a new style, and improved functionality all at a more accessible price point.

Risks and challenges
We are confident that we will fulfill our orders in the time specified, but there can always be unforeseen issues beyond our control.
If any issues arise we will share them with you, our amazing backers, and solve them with our fantastic team who are dedicated to making our company a success.
What makes us confident: Sheertex has spent the last 2 years re-inventing sheers from the ground up to create the world’s strongest pair of sheers. Patent-pending, Sheertex sheers are undoubtedly the strongest in the world and the company has already shipped thousands of pairs around the world.
Developing the world’s first indestructible pair of sheer tights was no easy feat. Not satisfied with any of the fibers on the market today, the Sheertex team developed a proprietary fiber specifically for the product. Developed from the same category of fibers used in bulletproof vests, climbing equipment and fishing line, our fibers are 10 times stronger than steel, cool to the touch, and antibacterial.
The Sheertex factory, in Bracebridge Canada, has been designed from scratch to handle every part of the manufacturing process.
Ship date: We've made sure to have built in extra time for our production and are very confident we will ship by our estimated dates.
Supply Chain Risk: We have built a supply chain that we are extremely proud of. We have the confidence and trust that we will get you a superior product by our estimated date. Again, if any issues arise we will share them with you and solve them as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
