For a rigorous day of skiing or a less active day of couch surfing, long sleeve tee shirts should be a part of everyone's tee shirt collection. And if you plan to work up a sweat, a long-sleeved tee that keeps you dry can make the difference between maximum performance and a a cold, sweat-soaked workout. The key is to select shirts with moisture-wicking fabric. These materials pull moisture away from your skin and transport it to the outside of the fabric, where it easily evaporates. Even in colder weather it's easy to overheat, so wicking t-shirts are as useful in cold weather as they are in the heat.
Some wicking tees have additional benefits, especially for outdoor sports, skiing, winter running and other cool weather activities. To reduce muscle fatigue, try long-sleeved tees made of compression fabric that will also support muscles during exercise. Some tees have anti-microbial properties for odor control and ventilation for quick cooling. There are styles for everything you do, from cozy fleece cotton blends to half-zip pullovers in reflective colors, ideal for night runs. However you work up a sweat, a wicking tee helps regulate body temperature to keep you comfortable and dry.
