A Milder weather alternative to the Mountain Shirt, when less insulation but maximum wicking is required. PForm shell fabric with its technical unique weave gives a highly breathable and windproof performance making this garment ideal for low level hill walking and trekking, climbing, mountain biking, running and general outdoor activities.
This garment works most efficiently when worn next to the skin.
As per the product description, this is excellent for hard exercise in the cold. I tested this on a hike over the downs (ok I wanted to test it after xmas) in <10C with wind chill and occasional rain. I decided to follow what I'd been reading and wore nothing underneath the shirt. At first, standing in 10C - 6.5C thought I'd made a terrible mistake; however, once I got going - fast walking/tabbing going up and down steep slopes - I was quite amazed at how this kept me warm and also though sweating I never got wet. Excellent bit of kit. NB: Once you have stopped you will chill down rapidly so be sure to have a warm outer layer to throw on afterwards. I would recommend this for steep hikes with pack in spring/autumn; MTB or maybe even running in 0-8C.
