Last year at the US Lacrosse Convention, Epoch Lacrosse showed ILGear a prototype concept mesh called Otter Mesh. At this year’s #LaxCon, they delivered and had several samples at their private product suite.
“By using advanced materials, designs and engineering, we have built a better mouse trap,” said James Miceli, Principal at Epoch Lacrosse. “Otter Mesh is not an incremental step, but a giant leap forward in the performance of mesh,” he added.
By using military-grade advanced materials Epoch has achieved a significant reduction in weight, 50% lighter compared to conventional mesh, while increasing overall strength and abrasion resistance. This new material is naturally hydrophobic and is not affected by water, therefore it will not stretch when playing in the rain, sleet, snow or humid conditions. [click here to read more]
