Great Product for the Winter
on December 14, 2013
I had ordered this as I was using a non-thermal compression long sleeve top for my usual runs in the non-winter season. Since, the winters in my area are quite severe and I had to resort to multiple layers of clothing. This would of course result in a 'heavy' run outfit and the sweat would make it worse. I carried out a lot of research and came across the 2XU Men's Thermal Compression Top, which had the best reviews. There are only 02 cons against, which made me give it a 4 star instead of a 5. They are, the fit was a bit small around the chest, as against the fit guide which I used, maybe it was because of me chest fell in the border region of M and L. Next time I would go for a L. The other con, is that I feel that the price is tad too high. I feel it could go in the USD 90 to 100 range.
As regards the product itself, I have no complains. It works perfectly in the extreme cold. I only wear a running T Shirt over it and a wind stopper. The moisture is wicked away perfectly and if there is no wind, I can do without the wind stopper too. The top also maintains my core temperature and the compression works perfectly for the upper body. Although the bit is a little bit small, but I do not exactly feel a discomfort during the run.
I will recommend this product for all the runners who love running in extreme cold.
