tasc Performance was brought to life in 2009 with one mission: the reinvention of performance apparel. The New Orleans-based company was founded and is operated by the Andrews family, which has a 40-year legacy in the garment industry. After years of dealing with the compromises of polyester athletic apparel – skin irritation, bad odor and more – Al Andrews, former Tulane University basketball standout (All SEC '65-'66) charged his son Todd with the difficult task of finding a solution to the polyester problem. Over a 2+ year period of natural fiber research and textile engineering , the BamCo® (patent-pending) fabric finishing process was created. The resulting fabric hit every metric: Performance (moisture wicking, drying rate, UPF 50+), Feel (absolutely amazing), and Durability (color fastness, shape retention, easy care, anti-odor). After prototypes were tested on a variety of athletes (from moms to professionals) a company was born and the game changed.
