It’s clear no expense has been spared in constructing this capable running top. There are numerous sophisticated knitting techniques that have produced several ventilation panels, all of which perform well on the sweatiest of backs.
Most of the seams are well located, ensuring a rub-free run. The exception is a large panel that’s welded into the rear of the shirt. The welded seams that surround it offer a little more resistance than their threaded counterparts, so you’ll notice the odd scratch.
The panel itself has a rich supply of X-Static silver fibres, which help to keep this area fresh. It’s difficult to say if this is entirely due to the conductive properties of the fibres or the well-designed mesh but it’s a welcome addition. The neck also creates some irritation in donning/doffing, as there’s only minimal stretch around even a normal-sized head.
