Adidas Climalite T-Shirt : Stay-Dry Comfort

My Adidas Climalite T-Shirt is intended to be a warm weather garment, but it’s February here in Portland, OR. Not the Arctic but not T-shirt weather either. I’ve been wearing it as a base layer, and It’s been great.

The Adidas Climalite T-shirt is a semi-formfitting, no-frills technical tee made out of Climalite polyester. It wicks moisture well and dries quickly, which is exactly what I want it to do.

I first wore it on a casual bike adventure around Portland, seeking views from a couple of high places around town. There was plenty of huffing-and-puffing up hills, followed by zippy descents with periods of rest or moderate flatland pedaling in between. The key to enjoying this type of adventure is staying dry. Since it was sunny, all I wore that day was my Climalite T-Shirt under a breathable mid weight layer. This configuration kept me dry and warm weather I was sweating up a hill or feeling the wind on my face on a descent. My Adidas Climalite T-Shirt performed as needed, pulling perspiration away from my skin and moving it out where it could evaporate through my breathable outer layers.

Fit-wise, I really appreciate that the Adidas Climalite T-Shirt does not bunch up when used as a base layer (sometimes base layers have a tendency to twist or ride up in uncomfortable ways) but stays put whether I’m running or riding.

Adidas makes an entire whole line of active wear garments made out of the Climalite fabric in men’s and women’s styles. The Climalite T-Shirt I tested was the basic tee, which had a simple round neck and design (i.e., no stripes). There are plenty of flashier design options for folks who want to stand out.

Bottom Line: The Adidas Climalite T-Shirt is a semi-formfitting, no-frills technical top that wicks moisture well and dries quickly. Great for running and cycling workouts.--A.S. (Feb 2012)
