Today, we’re bringing you the Tasc Performance rundown on long sleeves and all the latest you need to know!
What Are the Essential Features for my Long Sleeve Tops?
The essential features for a modern long sleeve top come down to the fabric.
Traditional fabrics such as cheap cotton and synthetic fabrics offered underwhelming performance capability at a high environmental cost. Even the few synthetic fabrics that seem practically sufficient require harmful chemical treatments to get there.
That’s why our research at Tasc Performance took us looking for better fabrics. Boy, did we find them!
Organic cotton is a well-known alternative to traditional cotton, with a much lower environmental impact and improved performance.
The real star of the show, though, is bamboo. This incredibly sustainable fabric is packed with natural features (no chemical treatments needed) that check off every box and a few extras.
Now let’s talk about those features. The most essential features for a long sleeve top are moisture-wicking and breathability, followed by a soft feel, odor resistance, and flexibility.
While moisture-wicking and breathability may initially seem counterintuitive for a layer that’s meant to keep you warm, they are actually key. Moisture-wicking helps keep you dry—the most important step to staying warm, and when combined with breathability, protects your natural thermoregulatory processes.
Bamboo offers each of those essential qualities, along with added UPF sun protection, hypoallergenic fabric, and more. To choose top-quality tops, look for bamboo and organic cotton!
