The most comfortable fabric against HEAT and HUMIDITY!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ExOfficio Men's Exo Dri Tee Shirt (Sports Apparel)
I am deployed in E. Afghanistan and it gets hot here....I mean HOT! 120 degrees...easy! I searched for almost 2 entire years for the perfect t-shirt/fabric to beat the heat here and FINALLY, I've found it! This T-shirt specifically is extremely thin, (but not see through) and it is of very high, durable quality. I have tried top brand names that claim to be the best in moisture control, but so far no one can touch this one. It is made of 85%polyester and 15% cotton. But even in the sun one cannot feel it getting hot like other polyester products do. It dries up quickly and it feels extremely light. They are a little larger than I am used to. I had to reorder mine one size smaller, but it was worth the wait. I've washed mine about 6 times already and still looks brand new and has retained its original size. Another great thing: it's wash and wear (almost wrinkle-free)so no need to iron it. For comparison purposes, I bought the more expensive Columbia Insect Blocker, which is 100% polyester...although it is also a great and more elegant long sleeve t-shirt, I prefer to wear the ExOfficio's because it can take a beating. But I prefer to wear the Columbia during down time or when I want to look more presentable. Make sure to buy this specific type of t-shirt from exOfficio and not the Insect Blocker T-shirt from the same company if you are looking to beat the heat. The Insect Blocker version is much thicker. Another great alternative to this t-shirt is the Long Sleeve version of it. It adds protection to your arms.
