tasc performance is the gear that Everest Mountaineer Jeff Evans trusts to help him lead the most dangerous high-altitude rescues in the world’s harshest conditions

New Orleans, LA (October 26, 2016)—Tune in to Everest Air on the Travel Channel tonight, Wednesday, October 26th, as Jeff Evans, one of the world’s leading mountain guides and an emergency medicine Physician Assistant, leads a team of sherpas and helicopter pilots on some of the most dangerous high-altitude rescues ever performed. This past May, Jeff and his team spent countless days on the side of Mt. Everest saving lives and performing rescue missions that had never been attempted before. The show premiers tonight at 10 pm EST with new episodes (6 total) airing each Wednesday.

Jeff trusts tasc Performance apparel to stand up to his incredible adventures and to perform under all conditions. His go-to on Everest is the MOSOMerino (bamboo + merino wool) collection , which is engineered for all-season performance and protection. The combination of merino wool and bamboo results in a fabric that unites the best in technology with the best in nature. It has the ability to absorb and release sweat fast while having a high warmth-to-weight ratio that maintains and regulates body temperature. More importantly, the proprietary and super soft tasc Performance fabric naturally resists odor, which comes in handy while performing 24-hour rescue missions in the tiny cockpit of a helicopter. 

As a family owned company from New Orleans, tasc Performance has over 68 years of experience in textile development with a focus on proprietary, high performing fabrics and patterns. Beginning with certified sustainable and organic bamboo viscose, tasc ensures that each stage of the fabric construction process emphasizes sustainability. As such, 99% of the water used in the dying process is reused and 90% of the energy used in making the performance garments is renewable solar energy.

About tasc Performance:

tasc Performance was brought to life in 2009 with one mission: the reinvention of performance apparel. The New Orleans-based, active apparel, company was founded and is operated by the Andrews family, which has a 40-year legacy in the garment industry. Over a 2+ year period of natural fiber research and textile engineering, the BamCo® (patent-pending) fabric finishing process was created. This process combines viscose from bamboo and organic cotton to create fabrics that hit every metric: Performance (moisture wicking, drying rate, UPF 50+), Feel (absolutely amazing), and Durability (color fastness, shape retention, easy care, anti-odor). tasc now has over ten proprietary fabrics that are built for the mission of enhancing the active experience through the innovation of original fabrics. http://www.tascperformance.com
