There are athletic activities for which only a long sleeved t-shirt will do. If you're an all-weather athlete, long sleeves will make all the difference during winter running, hiking, skiing and outdoor workouts. Some long-sleeved athletic t-shirts are designed specifically for performance and include features such as compression fit to bolster muscle support and fabric that wicks away moisture to keep you warm and dry. Some tees are all about comfort, featuring ultra-soft cotton, lightweight fabric or luxurious wool/silk combinations.
And there's the wardrobe classic, the long-sleeve fleece, usually in the form of a sweatshirt. No clothing item works harder than a fleece, whether crew neck or zip. Some athletic tees are equally at home as casual wear, with baseball sleeves, henley necklines, color block styles or fashionable color choices. Fitted tees also work well as base layers under cold-weather gear. Look for benefits like moisture-wicking fabric, four-way stretch that moves with you, mesh ventilation panels and anti-microbial odor-blocking properties. Whether for a casual game of winter hoops or a black-diamond run, a long sleeved athletic tee shirt will increase your comfort, letting you play harder and perform better.
