Give-N-Go V-Neck Short-Sleeve Tee
Outdoors and the office
I bought this to replace a couple of heavier weight REI polypropylene "liners"used for backpacking. Found they work great as undershirts for summer wear under dress shirts in deep south Texas.
The material is fantastic for breatheability. I think the white color is rather shear . Sizes run a tad large unless you want super relaxed fit. The other reviews about catching threads is very true.
Only one problem
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Feels great, cool, wicking, dries quickly, doesn't hold odors, etc. The weave is what I'll call a "box style" that catches on things and the threads will pull. I put one through the wash and when I took it out, it had a number of pulls from zippers or something on the other garments. It's still a great base-layer, but now I won't wear it by itself.
Gives & Goes, Great Shirt
Already own 3 and about to own 3 more now that the price is much cheaper than in 2010. I needed a V neck shirt for under a uniform and this was it. Simply put they are great at wicking moisture from under a bullet proof vest when the temperatures rise or you are stomping through the woods for other reasons. Usually get multi day wears from one shirt before its time for a wash.
They also work for everything else as it says: hiking, biking, paddling, running, walking the dog, or sitting around in the back yard. It dries out very quickly when needed.
I typically wear a M shirt but got S since I knew they were going to be under shirts. I'd say fit is true when it says slim. Only got them in Charcoal since I thought White could possibly stain and Black might be too warm.
Only con was the sleeves seemed a bit long for under the uniform and had to be removed.
DEAR EXOFFICIO, make this shirt without sleeves, otherwise, keep it up.
Great for backpacking
I took a pair of these ExOfficio Give-N-Go shirts backpacking for three weeks across China, Thailand and Cambodia in the summertime. They are perfect for travelling light. They barely weigh anything, can be rolled up tightly. Easy to wash by hand and they dry quickly. I am 5'10, 160 lbs, and wear a 40R jacket, and the mediums fit perfectly. In the hot and humid weather, these keep you cool and dry. I only took two with me and washed them at night before I went to sleep and put the same shirt on the next day.
As usual, Ex-Officio products continue to deliver.
Perfect Synthetic But Not Slim
This shirt is just as nice as shirts that cost much more. It is very light and you can hardly feel it on your body when wearing it. It is made of the same synthetic as exofficio's underwear which are very nice as well. I would say that the fit is not slim. I sized up since the description said it was slim, i will be returning it for a smaller size. Keep in mind that this is no whimpy v-neck, this is a deep v-neck and shows a bit of chest.
