Trail (UK) - - USED & ABUSED -

USED BY sweaty Trail staff writer Jake Ken­dall-Ash­ton

USED FOR 3 months

I’ve sweated a lot in this base layer. The sort of amount where you could wring out the t-shirt af­ter peel­ing it off your body and fill a pint glass with the out­pour­ing sweat. It’s been a su­per-hot sum­mer af­ter all! But don’t worry, it’s not go­ing to be our next reader give­away gift...

Hav­ing said that, if it were to be, I wouldn’t be left red-faced with em­bar­rass­ment, be­cause thanks to its mois­ture- and odour-wick­ing prop­er­ties it has thus far re­mained de­light­fully pongfree. The key here is Columbia’s Omni-Freeze Zero fab­ric tech­nol­ogy, which is de­signed to re­act with sweat to lower the ma­te­rial’s tem­per­a­ture and sub­se­quently cool the wearer down. The gar­ment is also fin­ished with an­timi­cro­bial treat­ment to min­imise whiff, while it has UPF 30 sun pro­tec­tion too.

I also like this top’s ath­letic fit, high crew neck­line and flat­lock seams, which help pre­vent any an­noy­ing skin ir­ri­ta­tion. Avail­able in six dif­fer­ent sizes, it also comes in over ten wacky colours – in­clud­ing Red Spark, Heat­wave and Hy­per Blue!


You won’t be see­ing this up for grabs at the next Trai● gear sale, as it’s stay­ing in my wardrobe!
