I honestly do not know why I did not think of this sooner. I have been looking for a baselayer for my running that keeps me warm without having anything that is unbreathable. I used to do MMA, I used to love my rash guards. They used to be the best thing to wear pre and post workout.
So when I got the offer to do a review for the I was really curious how it would work.
The one thing I have to warn you about up front is sizing. I went up one size larger then I normally do because I really wanted it to be a little roomy, even though I was going to wear it under stuff. It was a little tighter then I had hoped even one size up.
But for what I wanted, this works.
The higher neck keeps heat in my neck without being overly bulky. The sleeves are long but no quite too long, they are just at the right length even for my longer arms. Its also big enough that if I need to it, I need to roll it up.
One of my favorite trails has a very challenging headwind and this was perfect to help me combat some of the winds that leave me awfuly cold. It blocks the wind and keeps my heat in at the same time. And the thing is I can do it without the bulk of a jacket. This is a huge plus because I hate bulky jackets in general, and have yet to find a piece of running wear that works.
I also like the price. You can get certain colors for right around 24 dollars which makes this such an affordable option for someone trying to keep their running gear on budget. It shipped quickly via Amazon.
The bottom line is the is a surprising plus. It works also for gym work outs when you want to stay warm in our sometimes cold and drafty. This is event a plus for burpees, because I tend to drag myself on the ground a little too much when I do burpees, and it helped me feel a tad bit more comfortable.
I will actually be ordering more soon from them.
