So many manufacturers say they have the highest quality fabrics, the coolest jersey or the best design but what is backing that up? Apart from some fancy marketing and a cool brand image, what proves their claim on quality?
At Kit Patron our gear comes from Champion Systems who independently test their fabrics for quality and function. An example is the Tech Jersey Fabric. This fabric is sourced from the best mills in Italy, so we know it is top quality but they took it to the next level by having a world leading university test the fabric for it's moisture wicking characteristics. Champion Systems had them test to the AATC standard and our jersey came out with top marks. When you add that this material has 100% permanent UV protection, passes all flammability tests and has been ridden and proven in competition around the world you know you are getting quality with the facts to back it up.
