We recently have tried out Polarmax’s AYG (All Year Gear) technical line of shirts and underwear.
Scott’s Review:The AYG XTRDRY Cotton shirt ($29.95 msrp) is now my favorite all around t-shirt! Not only is it a cotton shirt that you can use on your runs but for a “night on the town” – I don’t dress up much 🙂 The cotton shirt is 96% cotton and 4% spandex which gives it a light and stretchy feel. I wore this on a trail run and then let it sit for a couple days without washing it. Remarkibly the shirt didn’t stink. I guess the “Acclimate Fresh Anti-Microbial, Anti-Odor” feature is legit! Both Scott and Tim noted that the cotton shirts fit a little snug, you might consider going up a size unless you’re trying to show of that six-pack.
The technical silk shirt ($24.95 msrp) is also very light and airy. I happened to wear it on run where it started with rain. I was impressed that the shirt dried out VERY quickly after the rain stopped. I noticed, as did Tim, that the shirts still seemed very light even when wet.
I really liked the 4-way stretch boxer brief ($24.95 msrp). I always run with a boxer brief under my running shorts to prevent “chafage”. To date I have used Under armor. I felt the Polarmax briefs had the same good attributes. In addition, these seemed lighter and airier – they seemed to breath better than the Under armor.
Faith liked the fit of the technical shirt
