Looking for that shirt that both looks cool, feels comfortable, and is functional? We may have found the cure! (at least for us outdoor folks) We’ve been out testing the Exofficio ExO Dri 1/4 Zip Long Sleeve and found the shirt to be a great performer in various conditions. One of our favorite features on this shirt is the quarter zip. When hiking, running, skiing, or performing any other activity where you body heat fluctuates, we find it nice to be able to zip and unzip your shirt to regulate your body temperature. We found this to be true as we were out for a day hike and the temperature was great for a long sleeve, but as we hike about a half mile of a steep ascent, we need to be able to vent a little bit of our body heat. In this situation, we unzipped the shirt when hiking up and then after the ascent, we zipped the shirt back up to preserve our body heat. This not only regulates your body heat, but it also keeps you from sweating so much. Another compliment to sweat reduction is the fabric used in the shirt. With a moisture wicking fabric, the shirt wicks moisture away from your body to the outside of the shirt to keep you dry and comfortable. We found the shirt to be super comfy and lightweight, feels like the tee-shirt type sheets. We found the sizing to run a little big, so if you are between sizes, we suggest sizing down. Last but not least, we found the shirt to look good enough when heading out for a bite to eat as we try to fit in with the rest of civilization sometimes.
