Public Service

A world renowned police force needed a performance fabric to be used as the lining in their military grade vests. The current fabric was heavy and retained moisture and odor, making it uncomfortable and unhealthy as it preserved bacteria caused from the moisture.

As a leading specialist in manufacturing textiles that adhere to military specifications, Apex Mills was quick to jump into action. We were able to produce a 100% polyester spacer fabric featuring antimicrobial and permanent moisture management properties that perform six times faster than other moisture wicking fabrics.

By incorporating this fabric into their lifesaving ballistic vest, our customer was able to produce a lightweight and comfortable vest with adjustable straps to ensure a proper fit and promote minimal shifting during wear. This vest became standard issue for the force and received accolades from those who brave the elements from arctic blasts to extreme heat to save the lives of others.
