Train hard before you get into the outdoors to improve your performance when you do get there: that is the focus of The North Face Mountain Athletics line-up. This spring, I have had the opportunity to test out The North Face Women’s MA-X Short Sleeve as my base line on uphill ski tours, trail runs, and outside plyometric work to get ready for trail season.
MA-X Short Sleeve Fit and Features
You can wear just about anything when you are working out in the gym or performing intervals outside. But why wear just any t-shirt when you have the ability to wear a garment that makes you forget that you have anything on at all? The North Face MA-X Short Sleeve has a loose or relaxed fit in the body and larger cap sleeves to allow complete freedom of movement. The center back length is a bit more generous as well at 27″, to add more coverage while bending and lifting. The longer drop also carries over well when using the top for layering and tucking in.
The MA-X Short Sleeve features flat locked seams and reinforced taped seams to keep comfort and durability high. This translates into chafe free zones under the arms and over the shoulders. The contrast stitching and tape also adds a bit of character and style to the shirt. I tested the MA-X Short Sleeve in neon yellow, while the stitching is a bright pink.
The North Face MA-X Short Sleeve Fabric
The North Face MA-X Short Sleeve is light as a feather and extremely quick drying thanks to the incorporation of TNF patented FlashDry fabric. The fabric is also stretchy and abrasion resistant, making it ideal for trail running too. TNF added an even tougher fabric over the shoulders, to help prevent snagging or wear n’ tear if used while lifting. This extra abrasion-resistant fabric is also excellent for carrying a pack on the trail.
The North Face MA-X Short Sleeve is available in XS to XL and bright colors to add a punch to your workout. For more information on TNF Mountain Athletics products, please visit www.amazon.com/thenorthface.
