Our main objective with this tests that you will find below is to offer some magnitude values about certain factors of a specific object, to throw analytical data on it and be able, and ultimately, to compare it with other similar elements and see what it is. better. To do this, we will explain below each of the tests that we will do as well as our way of proceeding in order to obtain comparative data as faithful to reality as possible.
- TESTS ALWAYS BE THE SAME: In order to offer comparative data as faithful as possible to reality, we will try to carry out the tests in such a way that all the elements that we use for our tests are always the same. (Example: To measure the impermeability of an element we are going to make sure that the temperature and the volume of water that we use to measure said impermeability is always the same).
- ACCESSIBLE EVIDENCE: One of our objectives in this regard is to be able to provide useful analytical information, albeit with everyday means. Mainly because we do not have the budget or the necessary facilities to carry out laboratory tests, and secondly, because we also want to invite our readers to do these tests, to be able to compare more similar products.
Below we offer a detailed explanation of the tests that we will perform in each of the reviews as long as they are appropriate. In each of the sections the objectives of the test, the materials used as well as the procedure to carry out the test will be detailed.
TEST TO ANALYZE THE VOLUME OF A VESSEL
Find out in a simple way the total usable volume of a certain container. Usually backpacks, bags, and things like that.
Generic 1.5L water bottles. As many as will fit in the container to be analyzed.
Fill the container with as many bottles as possible.
TEST TO ANALYZE MEASUREMENTS
Find out the measurements (in cm) of certain objects.
Measure from side to side the object / part of the object that you want to measure. The format of the result will always be given in: LengthxWidthxHigh
TEST TO ANALYZE THE CONSTRUCTION QUALITY OF FABRICS
Observe in detail the frabric construction quality and seams of certain elements.
USB digital microscope
See how the fabric and the seams of the product to be analyzed are woven through the USB digital microscope.
TEST TO SEE ABRASION RESISTANCE
See how the material to be analyzed behaves in the face of abrasion from a steel bristle brush.
Steel bristle brush.
Trying to always maintain a constant pressure, brush the surface with the steel tines of the brush to see how the material degrades.
See how a certain object behaves when the water passes. With this test we intend to see how waterproof a certain fabric is by subjecting it to a column of water and some pressure at home.
generic plastic water tube / 1.5 L bottle and water
Placing the outer part of the fabric / garment on one end of the tube / bottle used and ensuring it does not give way under pressure, fill the bottle / tube with water and wait to see how long it takes for the water to penetrate the fabric. Additionally, you can apply some pressure to see if this happens more easily.
USED MATERIALS FOR MEASUREMENT
So that you can also carry out the tests with the greatest similarity in terms of magnitudes, we leave at your disposal the same tools and devices that we use to measure magnitudes of our tests.

Nº1 DIGITAL PENDANT SCALE
It is our main digital hanging scale. It is capable of measuring between 1-300Kg with an error of +/- 50g.
Nº2 DIGITAL PENDANT SCALE
It is our secondary digital hanging scale. It measures up to 50 Kg, and we use it mainly when our main scale is not capable of correctly weighing the load because it is very light (Below 1Kg).
USB DIGITAL MICROSCOPE
We use it primarily to see the quality of fabrics and stitching, as well as anything that needs to be zoomed in. Makes about a x1000 magnification.
STEEL BRUSH BRUSH
It is an abrasive tool that we will use to see how the product to be analyzed behaves when faced with abrasion and scraping.
Especially useful to see how equipment fabric degrades.
