The Mil-Tec Sport Shirt is a long sleeve shirt that is based on a proven design. Athletes have known for a long time that a cotton-free under shirt that is form fitting will help keep you warm, comfortable, and dry during rigorous activity like soccer or football. This is achieved by the use of synthetic fibers like Nylon which will not soak up sweat like cotton does. For this design to be effective there needs to be an elastic fiber blended in, so that the shirt will compress against your body for maximum effectiveness.
This Mil-Tec Sport Shirt achieves this by using a 92% Nylon / 8% Elastan weave to produce an incredibly effective moisture wicking design. The Nylon will quickly remove sweat from your skin and evaporate it away. Elastan will ensure that the shirt stays form fitting with a very light compression against your body which will also assist with muscle fatigue.
this is a nice shit. god quality. i ordered the 2x/3x and it fits like a lrg. i am 6'3" and 260 lbs. had to give it to my son. if you want one get a much bigger size to wear comftably. sad because it really is a nice shirt
I purchased this as a cheaper alternative to the base layer polypro shirt I got from LL Bean (for a little over double the price). It looks less "sporty" than the other, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It is also a bit thicker, whereas the other seems like a membrane that adheres to your skin. Again, not a bad thing unless you really prefer the thinnest one possible. It clings to you, but doesn't fill in the gaps, if you know what I mean. I think this one be a warmer, possibly more durable shirt than the other one I purchased, but might not be as wicking as the other, so it all depends on what you want. Overall, it's very comfortable and set at a nice price.
I wear a size large... I regret not ordering the extra big version. I'm aware of how this shirt is supposed to work , I just don't like "clingy" clothing. I look like a lame version of an action figure in it. Otherwise a great deal, I've become a big fan of the Mil Tec quality and price. Go big or go home in my opinion for this one.
