XGO® (a division of Longworth Industries™) is a tactical high-performance base layer & apparel manufacturer located in central North Carolina (just a few miles west of Fort Bragg) that has over 30 years’ experience manufacturing quality performance apparel and accessories. The XGO® brand was launched in 2004 when Longworth was awarded a US Army contract for moisture wicking polyester t-shirts. XGO® continues to proudly serve our nation and our ally countries’ finest: Military, Government Services, Law Enforcement and First Responders, with the most mission- ready gear on the market. We make gear capable of withstanding any environment or mission that our brave men and women may endure. XGO® – Ready to Go
The culture of XGO® is one proudly built on innovation and patriotism. We’re committed to creating new fabric technologies. We are creating clothing that is not only state of the art but can consistently perform at its best in all conditions. XGO® was one of the first brands to introduce an engineered system of next to skin layers designed to be work as standalone pieces or as part of a layering system.
The first high-performance feature that was trademarked with XGO® was our Acclimate® Dry technology. Acclimate® Dry features an incredible development of wicking properties for all our fabrics. We continue to engineer all the features of our fabrics and design but the Acclimate® Dry is prominent in all our gear. Other technical features of our fabrics include AG47® antimicrobial for killing bacteria and controlling odor, Clean Seam® construction for comfort to the wearer, patented blend of flame retardant fibers for industry leading FR products.
Unlike our competitors (that outsource their processes overseas), all our designs, sources, production, shipping, marketing, and management are handled within a 30-mile radius of Southern Pines, NC. As proud as we are of that fact, it also allows us to maintain “hands-on” quality control while having a low carbon footprint, ensuring that we continue to deliver the best possible products and value to our most important asset: our customers.
