TCCC Base Layer Technology

What is TCCC Technology?
Like a HVAC system for athletes, TCCC Technology allows your body to offload heat produced by your muscles during activity at superficial blood flow exposures (pulse points). This heat is absorbed by the HydraQore Inserts in our TCCC Base Layers, improving hydration while supercharging athletic performance and work capacity.
How do your systems work?

Our TCCC Technology works off of timeless First Aid principles taught to emergency medical personnel of all levels by the American Red Cross.

All Emergency Medical personnel are taught to address temperature-related illness (hypothermia & heat stroke, as examples) by placing heating or cooling over the Pulse Points at the Femoral, Brachial and Ulnar/Radial arteries. Qore Performance Technology works off of the same principle, but packages it in a form factor optimized for athletes and professionals in demanding environments.

What are the Inserts made out of?

Our Inserts contain a non-toxic Phase Change Material that has a melting point of about 60ºF. This is a lot higher than the melting point of ice so your body will offload heat efficiently without your blood vessels constricting.

The outer shell is a smooth and extremely strong and durable polymer that is resists odor and bacteria.

How do the TCCC Base Layers help me stay hydrated? How long do the Inserts last?

A typical user going for a run, playing a sport or doing high-intensity training will be able to get a 40% hydration boost in as little as 20-30 minutes on a full charge. Our Inserts offload your heat based on the intensity of your workout and level of exertion.

How do I recharge my Inserts?

Rechargeable Inserts can be charged in ice water in less than 15 minutes! You can also put them in the freezer for about an hour or a refrigerator overnight.

How many times can I recharge my Inserts?

The inserts will recharge without any degradation an unlimited number of times. When we say rechargeable, we mean it!

Will the Inserts break?

We have tested out our inserts in all kinds of crazy situations and they stay strong.

Who can use the TCCC Base Layers?

You. Qore Performance has been tested by some of the world’s best athletes and elite professionals in baseball, track, swimming, Crossfit, running, soccer, football, skiing, snowboarding, military, law enforcement and industrial applications. The list goes on. The more pulse points you use, the better your body will perform.

Will your products fit women?

Absolutely, we've received great feedback regarding comfort and fit from both men and women.

Will TCCC Base Layers interfere with my athletic activity?

We have taken a great deal of time tailoring our TCCC Base Layers to virtually disappear during all athletic activities. We have tested the products across a wide range of sporting activities, from the high swing speeds of golf and baseball, to the extreme flexibility of hurdling, to the advanced kit of tactical operators - all without issue.

Do your Systems work for heating?

Yes! We also sell heating inserts, which are very similar to the handwarmers used by skiiers and outdoorsmen the world over. When used in heating mode, Heating Inserts will warm your blood at the Pulse Points where large volumes of blood flow close to the surface of your skin, keeping you warm throughout.

How do I care for my TCCC Base Layers?

Qore Performance garments are premium products that should be cared for accordingly. They can be washed the same as any base layers, and then hung to dry. Using the dryer is hard on all performance fabrics, so please follow the instructions on the care label.
