3.0 out of 5 stars Good but one issue..., 18 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Helly Hansen Mens Lifa Dry Stripe Crew Base Layer (Apparel)
I've used both an older version Helly and now this more recent version (Lifa). As a base layer the old version was great, had a cotton feel, wicked well and did the job.
This more recent version has a very different feel to it, I guess best described as a nylon feel. This in its self is not an issue, but having used a few times now as a base layer for winter runs I have to report sore nipples are the outcome from moderate 50 minute runs every time...and that is not what I want or expect from Helly.
I've run in basic cotton t-shirts as well as Nike running tops and never had sore nipples - the only exception being when I got soaked in a downpour on a very long run.
I'm baffled that a brand such as Helly, with a heritage of performance base layer for athletes has produced a product that is so abrasive - was it thoroughly tested?? Or is this just effecting me??
Who know's, but this is what happened and it's annoyed me so much that I felt compelled to review it.

Agreed with the previous reviewer: a nylon feel.

Just put some plasters on your nipples before leaving. Even the cheapest brand works fine. No more painful nipples in cold weather.
