Pros Dries fairly quickly, versatile for any outdoor sport, affordableExtremely breathable mesh, dries very quickly, comfortableCool headphone cord keeper, lots of breathable mesh, comfortable fit, affordableDurable and versatile, fairly breathable and quick drying, uses natural fibersLoose fit, comfortable fabric, great price
Cons Itchy and irritating seams, few reflectorsSuper light mesh has durability concerns, not many featuresIsn’t the fastest to dry outPricey, still made of almost 50% synthetic fiber, not as soft as othersEasily builds static electricity, no reflectors at all, odor control not super effective
Bottom Line A good shirt that isn’t nearly as comfortable as others we tried.The best running shirt at forcing evaporative heat loss.Providing a very simple solution to a problem we didn’t realize we had.A great choice for those who appreciate natural fibers, or who just want a durable and versatile running shirt.A versatile shirt for a fantastic price: great value.
