The World’s First “Healthy” Golf Shirt. Introducing The MxVGolf Tour Polo
powered by Golf Refugees.

Did you know that most every golf shirt in your closet contains hidden skin irritants and/or carcinogenic chemicals? Synthetic (polyester/nylon) sports apparel made by the major manufacturers can contain up to fifteen chemicals, which are used to increase the performance of the garment in terms of moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial properties. However, when you play and sweat, the body’s largest organ, your 'skin' interacts with these chemicals which may cause long term detrimental effects.

Now imagine apparel that is clean to wear, clean to own.

Our MxV Tour Polo is the first of its kind... organic cotton with “direct to garment” water-based inks developed exclusively by Golf Refugees. Each shirt is made of premium 100% organic cotton and printed with our unique design. No other sports shirt on the market is “healthier” than that!

In sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL - white - $70 USD

  1. Last summer when the European regulatory body raised concerns about the chemicals used to make polyester moisture-wicking anti-bacterial shirts, there was complete silence from the chemical industry, the leading sportswear brands and the sports media.

    Let’s repeat the conclusions made by the European consumer testing body.
    There are genuine concerns for human health from the accumulative exposure to chemicals in consumer products. Synthetic sports apparel uses combinations of chemicals which interact with your skin when participating in active play through sweating. European consumer organisation scientists proved this by using simulated sweat solutions and extracting toxic heavy metals and chemicals from synthetic sports shirts manufactured in 2012. If consumers wish to reduce their interaction with these toxic chemicals they should consider wearing a natural fibre t-shirt beneath their synthetic sports apparel, to act as a barrier.

    They also heavily criticised the current testing procedures concluding that the system of testing chemicals on an individual basis ‘as not fit for purpose’. New testing procedures need to test for the toxicity levels of combinations of chemical used to make consumer products.

    Leading sport apparel brands do not make available any information regarding the chemicals they use to consumers. The chemical industry do provide all apparel brands with material safety data sheets (MSDS) for the chemically based textile finishing including moisture-wicking and anti-bacterial products they provide to sport apparel brands.

    Instead of reporting about someone’s latest girlfriend, perhaps there are more important sport stories to investigate.
