Garmatex Technologies, Inc. signs 5 Year Textile Licensing Agreement with BODYARMOUR(R) and BASE360(TM)

December 13, 2012

VANCOUVER, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Garmatex Technologies, Inc. (“Garmatex” or the “Company”), an innovative leader in the research and
development of scientifically engineered, performance-inspired fabric
technologies, is pleased to announce the signing of a 5 year licensing
contract with Pro-Formance Insights, R.A. Inc. (PFI), a Canadian
company specializing in cut resistant base layer protection apparel
that safeguards against serious lacerations in sports, law enforcement
and other high-risk professions. PFI is selling their products through
the brand names BODYARMOUR® and BASE360(TM).

Doug Thom, CTO of Garmatex states; “This is truly an amazing breakthrough. By combining PFI’s
patented cut resistant technologies with our moisture management
fabrics and patented T3® gusset technology, this is truly the
convergence of 2 superior technologies combined into 1 phenomenal
product. Whether you’re a hockey player trying to prevent skate cuts or
a police officer exposed to a dangerous situation, you now have the
ultimate in comfort, performance and protection built into one
product.”

Rolf Loyens, President of PFI, is equally excited about this relationship. “This has been a long
process for us to find a partner that views performance and protection
equally as important as we do. In some cases, our users are on the
front line putting their lives at risk therefore there can be no
compromise for quality; only the best will do.” Mr. Loyens also adds
that; “We pre-tested the product with our key influencers and the
response by insiders to this new technology within our 2013 BODYARMOUR®
and BASE360(TM) product line has been overwhelmingly positive. Hockey
players are looking to prevent severe lacerations from skates and the
integration of protection in a light weight performance fabric is
establishing our base layer products as an integral piece of equipment
versus just an accessory.” Mr. Loyens comments that; “If one takes into
account the multiple applications for this technology like: hockey, ice
sports, law enforcement, security, industrial and military, the
potential for this segment of the apparel market can be in excess of
$400 million.”

Darren Berezowski, President of Garmatex suggests that; “This signing with PFI affirms our goal at Garmatex
towards continuing to license our leading-edge fabrics and technologies
to premium brands that are looking to use innovation to help improve
lives around the world. Our technologies combined with PFI’s
technologies create a rather unique product which truly leverages both
companies into a strong market position. We are convinced that
developing leading-edge technology and partnering with like-minded
companies will ultimately transform the materials industry and help
establish Garmatex as the leader for performance and fabric
technologies.”
