Another reviewer stated this is not a Better Than Naked shirt, but it is. The BTN series is a subset of the flight series. This shirt might be an older model but it is clearly marked on the label at BTN. It's this shirt from the northface website: https://www.thenorthface.com/shop/mens-flight-better-than-naked-short-sleeve-nf0a3uxf
This particular shirt also just happens to suspiciously look like the European version of the BTN shirts, so maybe it 'fell of a boat' on the way to England and ended up on this site?
Anyway, like I said, I'm guessing this is an older version because the current BTN shirts are supposed to have taped seams and a distinctive 'mesh' on the back. That being said, this shirt *is* a BTN shirt as far as I can tell and it seems nice. It's very light and has so far not rubbed but I will know for sure when I do my next long run.
I've been running in merino wool shirts for years (which I love), but the humidity this summer seems worse than normal and the wool shirts start out nice and light at the beginning of the run but are *heavy* with sweat by the end. This polyester shirt did not have that problem and remained light and more or less sweat free throughout the run.
I'd be curious to compare this side-by-side with the current BTN shirts, but I'd probably buy another one. I've liked it so far.
Title says "The North Face Flight Better Than Naked T-Shirt - Men's". It is actually a Flight T-Shirt material only. Nothing about it is Better Than Naked material. The back of a Better Than Naked T is a completely different fabric, thinner with very unique pattern.
