Maxit Designs Inc. Customer Testimonials
"I am a tall guy and historically have had problems with losing heat around my mid-section where my tops and bottoms donít quite line up. When I was selecting my summit clothing, the down suit and expedition boots were an easy choice, but the long underwear layers were a more difficult selection. I chose to wear the MAXIT Bodysuit against my skin as a base-layer because I trusted MAXIT clothing and because the one-piece construction would prevent any heat loss near my waist. My selection was confirmed when in poor weather conditions I made the summit and was warm and elated on the top of the world!"

"I have been involved with the Edmonton Eskimo Football Club for the past thirty-three years and over that time we have supplied our players with many different types of performance apparel. I have yet to find any type of apparel that is as effective as the product supplied by MAXIT
This past November the Edmonton Eskimo Football Club won itís twelfth Grey Cup, symbolic of the Canadian Football League championship and MAXIT Performance apparel was an integral part in that accomplishment. MAXIT performance apparel allows us the maximum comfort and effectiveness without affecting the fit or protection of the equipment our players wear."

"I have been the equipment manager of the Kansas City Chiefs since 1989. Since that time, we have had the opportunity to test and wear many different performance and thermal wear clothing. MAXIT was the original company to supply thermal wear product to the NFL. It has been our experience that MAXIT makes the best performance and thermal wear product. The quality of construction and fabric has always been the best."

"I had the opportunity to use my new MAXIT bodysuit this past weekend for the first time. It exceeded my expectations!! At game time the temperature was twelve degrees with a 15 mph wind. As the afternoon progressed I was really impressed with how moisture wicked away. I never felt like there was much variation in the warmth provided. When exerting, I didnít feel clammy or overheated, but at the same time, while standing waiting for TV timeouts, was nice and warm. Great product."

"During the winter of 1990 I began intensive training for an attempt to climb 29,028í Mt. Everest, alone and without supplemental oxygen, while trying to beat the existing world-record rapid ascent time of 22 Ĺ hours. During this period of training and preparation I tested many different brands of clothing to find the best available garments that I would use during this specialized ascent. Travelling light was of utmost importance, as was the need to find clothing that was warm, functional, comfortable and would keep me dry. Since I would be moving fast, the ability for my clothing to keep moisture away from my skin in the cold environment was crucial to my success, let alone to keep me alive.
During that time, and in my position of Deputy Director of Triathlon Federation/USA, and the General Manager of the U.S. Triathlon Team, I visited a trade show where I was introduced to MAXIT thermal clothing which seemed to fit the properties that I had been looking for in undergarment wear. I later learned that the clothing was also being used successfully by the U.S. Cycling Team.
After extensive testing throughout the Colorado winter on nearby Pikes Peak (14,110í), I became increasingly impressed with the MAXIT clothing and remember ascending the peak one day in 50-60 MPH winds in sub-zero temperatures with only a single layer of the clothing covering my body Ė AND I REMAINED WARM AND DRY FOR THE ENTIRE CLIMB!
While on Everest, as a member of the 1991 American Everest Expedition, (which placed four members on the summit), I attempted a rapid ascent during which I realized the wise choice I had made with the MAXIT clothing. I was climbing quickly through the infamous Khumbu icefall in the intense late afternoon sun. The sun was going down, the wind was picking up, and I was worried that I would get very cold because of me sweating from the effort.
I arrived at the top of the icefall and put on another layer of MAXIT underwear and decided I would continue until I became too cold, which was certain to happen, and then descend. I was now at 21,000í the sun was gone and a strong cold wind slowed my progress. Incredibly, I did not get cold but found that after 30 minutes or so that my MAXIT top was bone dry. I continued my ascent to 23,000í before being turned back due to a headlamp failure.
In twenty years of mountaineering and hiking around the world I have never experienced clothing that performed this well. Thank you for developing a product that I can really trust."

"Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your thermal wear. I am a professional Duck Caller and Judge as well as an avid hunter for 35 years. MAXIT thermal wear is the FIRST underwear that has been comfortable for me, as I am a large man of 300 lbs. Your thermal wear is so light and does not restrict my movement. The pants are the first pair I have ever used that fit comfortably under a regular pair of pants. This is the first duck season I have used your shirt and pants, and Iím telling you, I cannot believe the warmth. We have had fourteen straight days of freezing temperatures in California and I HAVE NOT BEEN COLD ONE DAY WHILE HUNTING! I canít wait until deer hunting next year. I have used the HEADGATOR for the past three years and will not hunt without it!"
"When I requested more HEADGATORSģ to send to the team in Antarctica, consensus was that your product was fantastic. The HEADGATOR kept the cold out, and although the men perspired during their long days of skiing in mild temperatures (-20 degrees F was considered mild) they never got wet. Your product did not hold moisture which is crucial in Antarctic conditions... "
