Baleaf Short Sleeve Sun Protection Rashguard Swim Shirt UPF 50+

This shirt is a good product at a fair price for outdoor use in sunny conditions. Non-aggressive seams allows for comfortable backpacking and the SPF rating is great for a sunny day at the beach or in the canoe. This shirt fits well and is comfortable when performing repetitive movements or causing body friction with the shirt. It wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep you cool and rash free. Full review

ioMerino Ultra Tee

The Ultra Tee is a comfortable Merino wool T-shirt that’s great for hiking, running and global travel. I’ve been travelling for the last 18 months and the Ultra Tee has been a great shirt for working out on the road. My Usage Having minimal gear with me whilst travelling makes life so much easier. I like to try and stay healthy on the road and exercise regularly so I pack running shorts, my Altra Escalantes, and the Ultra Tee as my workout clothes. I throw on the Ultra Tee every couple of… Full review

La Sportiva Forward T-Shirt

The Forward T-Shirt from La Sportiva is a well-made, comfortable, technical quarter zip tee for trail running and other “high-output aerobic activities.” In my year and a half of use, I’ve found it to fit well, stretch and move with my body, and not cause any chafing (the bane of my running). Its Polygiene anti-bacterial/anti-odor treatment has excelled, with still no whiff of stink, despite many hot, sweaty miles. The Forward T-Shirt is best for running in warm weather. I find it most comfortable… Full review

Montane Men's Dart T-Shirt

The Montane Dart is a short-sleeved, synthetic shirt that is an ideal year-round base layer (a long sleeved, quarter zip is also available). It wicks moisture away from the body very quickly, is exceptionally tailored, and protects the skin with a high UPF factor. If you’re looking to start your kit from skin out, I’d highly recommend it. (Short sleeve tee on the right, quarter zip long sleeve on the left) FIT AND COMFORT The Dart fits exactly as I would design an active base layer to fit. Full review

Rab Men's Interval Tee

Ultralight (half the weight of a typical cotton t-shirt), highly breathable, comfortable, wicking material...keeps you cool and dry on very hot days or when you are running, training, or working hard. Dries in a flash, looks great, doesn't smell, moves with your body, and saves a lot of weight in your pack. I have three Rab Interval Tees—one in "Ebony", one in "Ink", and one in  "Evergreen", all in Medium, which is the perfect size for me. Their weights vary...one is 79g, one is 80g and the other… Full review

Dr.Cool Short Sleeve Cooling Shirt

Innovative material cools the user without chemicals. Moisture-wicking, circulation, and evaporation reduce the shirt's surface temperature as much as 30%. In a world filled with technology, I am always amazed when I come across a new technology that offers outdoor enthusiasts something new. The Dr. Cool Cooling Shirt is one of those products. While I have seen and tested other cooling shirts they all accomplished the feat using chemicals, what sets Dr.Cool apart from the crowd is they use Coolcores… Full review

MPG Elite Seamless T-Shirt

Odor control is the name of game with this Polygiene tee shirt. Nice fit, good ventilation, plus an interesting knit make this tee shirt stand out from the crowd. While planning my latest backpacking trip, a section hike on the Pacific Crest Trail, I realized that I had worn out my previous odor control tee shirt. Since I would be hiking with my wife for 16 days, being a smell mess was not going to work. A quick internet search brought me to the MPG Sport website. While I was not familiar with this… Full review

Opedix BLADE-Tec 2.0 V-Neck Shirt

Opedix crosses medical technology with sports in this shirt. Compression and tension are featured to improve performance, spinal alignment, and reduce pain. Opedix has taken the philosophy of Kinetic alignment from their already popular shorts and tights and moved it to the upper body with their Blade-Tech 2.0 shirt. By employing a variety of panels emanating from the center of the back and fanning outward the shirt both compresses and provides tension to aid in muscular alignment. By providing… Full review
