YesiLife, YezziLife! Great shirt.
on 8 November 2015
These NosiLife's are excellent. With hairy Celtic skin, I have never managed a synthetic shirt in the tropics before, though I have kept trying because of the potential convenience. They have always felt slimy, and the vaunted 'wicking' effect nullified by tropical humidity. However, having picked up a NosiLife (No Sea Life? NozzyLife? NossiLife? NoseyLife? MozzyLife)) at a discount, I tried again. One month of non-air-conditioned training in southern Myanmar at 35C and 90% humidity. This time I was extremely surprised. These shirts feel soft, very very light, and extremely well ventilated. Opening the vertical zip vent/pocket at the front loosens the shirt, and provides a through passage for air. They wash in a minute or two, and were dry within an hour or two. No ironing needed if hung to dry on a hanger. I am unconvinced by the mosquito repellence. In my experience, Mozzies (Nozzies?) usually home in on the feet, face, elbows, and are rarely interested in the NosiLife-protected parts unless they have nothing else to suck. This is a special shirt and the designer is to be congratulated. They also look smart and are well-fitting.
The only challenge is to pin down the pronunciation of the name? Is there a single answer?
