Great warm/hot weather sports base layer. Highly recommended.
on 3 June 2013
I'm 16 & half stone and wear an XL in Nike & Adidas football/running tops and this in a size XL is a perfect fit.
It's tight and, if it's your first base layer, can feel uncomfortable on first wear. That's what I found, when I first started wearing them (ColdGear in winter) a few years ago, but persevered and after a couple of football matches I got used to the close fit and now find it alien to exercise and not wear a base layer!
If you're a runner, a plus point is that wearing a base layer prevents nipple rub/bleeding if you've got a shirt/vest that scratches/irritates.
I find that I can wear this in any of the "high" temperatures that the UK summer presents us with and I don't feel I get too hot. In fact I feel more comfortable as it really does its job of wicking the sweat away without the fabric feeling wet against your skin. It's only when you take it off that you can see how hard you've worked yourself!
Also washes very well too. Have work it quite a few times already and washed it each time, without fabric conditioner (so no 2-in-1 tablets) and it always feels super smooth and soft and it's retained its shape and elasticity perfectly. Judging by the older Under Armour gear I have, I fully expect it to last me a good few years without even starting to fall to bits.
