Coats and Jackets Test Package



Service Scope

Jackets provide not only an additional layer of cloth on your dress-up routine. It also represents the customer’s fashion stance and allows additional warmth or weather protection. With that said, weakly constructed fabric or seams that breaks when wearing, faded colors after one time of outdoor activity or two, or leakage of rainwater of a raincoat… would definitely destroy the customer’s faith in the fashion label.

SGS provides basic chemical and physical performance test suggestions for coats & jackets, such as zipped hoodies, trench coats, and down or leather jackets, to ensure your product performance and eliminate risks of customer complaints. If you are looking for basic quality assurance testing, here is a good start.

Please choose the corresponding product type and test type base on your need. If any query, please feel free to contact us
