Product Spotlight: Performance Thermal Baselayer


Posted by Cags R on 24 January 2014 at 12:00 AM

The Festive period saw the release of the Performance Thermal Baselayer, since then, it's rapidly become one of the top products in the Tribesports range - so it's time to put it in the spotlight and find out what real sportspeople are saying about it?

"Great for comfort and warmth.They don't slip up your back out of your bottoms thanks to the grip strip! Looks good, good price, expectations met for me so I'm happy." - Adam

"I needed a baselayer for my long distance runs and this is perfect. An extremely smart looking piece of kit, once you wear it you realize how comfortable it is. Very soft and no chafing from the seams. It kept me warm without overheating during my runs and was quick to dry. A must for the cold weather." - John R 

As well as product reviews from the community, we asked Tribesports' favorite body weight training expert, Al Kavadlo, what he thought.

It's the first time we've ever seen Al in a shirt, so we weren't sure what to expect, but it's fair to say, he liked it! (Yes, Al is the only man we know who looks this happy during sets of diamond push-ups)

"Tribesports' baselayer shirt is perfect for outdoor calisthenics workouts, even when the weather isn't. The baselayer also works great for layering; it doesn't chafe my body or constrict my movement." - Al Kavadlo

John, from fitness blog Fit For 365, has been taking the Performance Thermal Baselayer out on the roads as he's kicking off his New Year with extra running!

To say he gave the baselayer a thorough testing is an understatement - check out his full review here, but here are the highlights:

"The seams are well finished and I had no problems with chafing during any runs. The top is designed to be tight fitting so you’d feel it if there was any rough seams. The material is very soft, (90% Polyester, 10% Spandex) which makes it comfortable, and its also warm to wear. I’ve worn it during heavy downpours and windy conditions and never felt cold.

Branded silicon gripper tape on inside bottom hem to hold garment in place. I really liked this feature. Sometimes clothing rides-up when you wear it, but the silicon tape on the bottom hem held it in place. 

Aegis antibacterial treatment creates a protective shield, providing active freshness. I can vouch for this 100%, but don’t judge me! So its time for a confession, I wore the top on all my workouts for two weeks, and never washed it once. This isn’t because of any bad habits of mine, I was intrigued as to whether the antibacterial treatment would work. It did, and just for information, I’m not in the habit of running in smelly clothes!"
