Can I use two products at the same time?

Layering makes sense when battling cold weather, but not when battling moisture. Here's why:

LESS PROTECTION

It may seem appropriate, but wearing two products at once actually decreases protection. That's because wearers only get protection from the product closest to the body. Any overflow from the first product will not be directed to the "strike zone" of the outer product, which might cause leakage to escape from the sides. To avoid this, use one product at a time.

MOISTURE BUILD UP

Wearing two products at once can actually trap heat and moisture next to the skin, which can lead to infection and skin irritation. Using just one product at a time is the best way to ensure the best protection and breathability.

RE-EVALUATE YOUR NEEDS

If you don't feel you're getting enough protection from a single product, perhaps it's time to re-evaluate what product is best for you. Take a look at our full protective hygiene line up here.
