    XGO Montana Wool

    Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

    I didn’t know that XGO offered wool garments so it came as a quite a surprise when we were discussing their line last week. Apparently, they offered wool briefly in 2008, but they’ve reintroduced it for Spring 2016.

    The issue has long been access to American wool that is on par with the famed Merino sheep of New Zealand. It’s happening and XGO has access to it.

    The advantages of wool are well known. Its inherent no-melt, no-drip and odor resistant properties as well as excellent warmth, even when wet, are all great reasons to use this natural fiber. XGO has also enhanced the wool’s performance with their AG-47 anti-microbial silver treatment.

    Welcome To Our Newest Advertiser, XGO

    Thursday, March 17th, 2016

    I’ve written about XGO many times over the years and I’ve got to tell you, I love their stuff. In fact, it’s an honor to welcome them as an advertiser. I actually became familiar with the Polarmax brand while I was still on active duty, before they split the military side of the business off as XGO. Over the years, XGO has done a great job working with end users to provide some very functional and comfortable knit garments. The secret is in the fabrics which are made to their specifications, including performance anti-microbial as well as FR blends. They even offer wool blends.

    Longworth Industries, Inc., parent company of XGO® and Polarmax® next-to-skin active apparel. Longworth Industries, Inc. is a vertically integrated manufacturer and our products are manufactured exclusively in the United States and distributed to select domestic and global markets. XGO® also has a complete line of next-to-skin FR products. Our FR products are made up of our patented blend of Modacrylic and FR Rayon.

    XGO is a small business right outside of Fort Bragg, in Southern Pines, North Carolina. This company makes Berry Compliant base and mid-layers as well as PT clothing. In fact, almost all of the work, from the milling to the dying and sewing are all done within a 100 miles or so of their headquarters. Only the raw fibers are sourced from outside of the Carolinas.


    One of their shirts you might want to check out is the new PHASE 1 Lightweight Technical Mesh Shirt. You can look at the photo and realize that the mesh is a tight weave that won’t look out of place in uniform.  In fact, it’s offered in the Army’s new Tan 499 for compatility with the OCP ACU. This relaxed fit T-shirt is made from XGO’s 4 ounce ACCLIMATE DRY polyester which wicks moisture vertically at a rate of 3” in 3 minutes, providing exceptional dry times. This shirt is also finished with their Ag 47TM. As you know, silver has great anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties. As moisture is moved through the fabric, the Ag 47TM attacks the bacteria contained in the perspiration and effectively eliminates odor and harmful bacteria-improving overall hygiene.

    To celebrate their aponsorship of Soldier Systems Daily, XGO has extended an awesome deal to SSD readers. Use discount code “SSD50” for 50% off everything on their site except clearance (not stackable) items. This generous discount runs through 3/17-4/2 at COB.

    SHOT Show – XGO

    Friday, January 23rd, 2015

    XGO has quite a few new items but is like to share two with you.

    The Montana Wool 1.0 is made from wool sheared in, you guessed it, Montana. It is 100% Merino wool meaning natural no melt / no drip, anti-microbial, and at 152 grams warm when wet. It is anatomically cut with clean seam for comfort. In addition to drop shoulders it has two extra inches in length to remain tucked in. Seen below is Treebark with Blaxk and Desert as and also coming late March, early April.


    The Hybrid is meant for workouts and incorporates their Phase 1 fabric with the FR rib, vented fabric. Oddly enough, the FR fabric used in this garment is highly stretchable and breathable and both fabrics are highly durable. Available in Desert Sand.
