Särmä Coolmax T-shirt
Coolmax is a brand name many people know and trust, a leading manufacturer of moisture wicking fabrics for active sportswear. Our Coolmax T-shirt is made for all those times when you need something better than just an old cotton tee, a comfortable tight fitting cut, raglan sleeves and a great hem lenght makes it perfect for sports, hiking or just everyday wear in warm weather.
- Active fit: snug and comfortable.
- Raglan sleeves: no chafing seams on the top of the shoulders adds comfort when carrying rucksacks.
- Flatlock seams: no thick folds that could cause discomfort.
- Long hem: the hem is longer at the back to keep it safely tucked in when moving about.
- Coolmax: 100% polyester fabric, excellent moisture wicking capabilities.
The fit is what most makers would call "active", quite tight fitting to reduce the chance of uncomfortable bunching up and folds. The raglan sleeves offer great movement and the fact that there is no seam on top of the shoulder makes this shirt great when carrying backpacks. The generously long hem is even longer at the back, a neat detail that means your shirt will stay tucked in when bending over.
Roughly speaking there are two kinds of T-shirts in the world: your normal cotton shirts for everyday and leisure wear and then there are the fancier moisture wicking types for active use. The moisture wicking types can further be divided into natural fibres (merino wool for example) and man made stuff, such as Coolmax. Merino wool is honestly the top of the line, but man made fibres such as Coolmax are great for many uses and far cheaper. Where natural fibres excell at odour management, natural flame retardancy and simple comfort in extreme use Coolmax and the like are not far behind. Coolmax is quick drying and far more comfortable when wet than 100% cotton, but lacks some of the superior qualities of merino wool. Coolmax is really a great choice for sports or hiking, where you need something that really performs but you don´t need it to take you to Hell and back.
Moisture wicking Coolmax fabric
These are made using genuine Coolmax brand polyester fabric, a well known and trusted name that means you know what you pay for. This mes-like fabric is smooth and dense on the inside and has a 3D net like structure on the outside, this works wonders when it comes to absorbing and transferring moisture away from the skin.
100% polyester, wash in 40 degrees (Celcius).
The measurements in brackets are the recommended user chest circumference and height in centimeters. Very simple. These are snug fitting and the Coolmax fabric does not stretch too much, so by picking your size you will get a true, snug fit . Pick a size larger if a bit more loose fit is required. For those looking for hard data, here's a chart with the actual measurements of the shirts themselves (in centimeters):

Koko on todellakin tyköistuva, tämä kannattaa huomioida kokoa miettiessä.
