I’m looking for something to wear under the uniform, to protect me from the cold, and it can be if something resists water, breathable and off, for the better. Ideally, I’m looking for is a platoon of which are glued to the leg, or at least get carried away under trousers. Then cheap graphic t shirts are all you need
Hello, The first thing you have to understand is what makes a T-shirt of the “thermal/technical” calls, a basic rule of all garments is NOT GIVE HEAT, i.e., no garment generates heat, which makes all clothing is simply to make that the body produces heat does not escape.
T-shirts, that is what is technically called the first layer does nothing but to “take shelter” in addition to protecting from the cold outside is important to know that there are two things that accelerate cooling, one is the wind and air currents moving the hot air that is around us l (which is heated by the body) and the third is the moisture that is critical, because water conducts heat 25 times (more or less) faster than air.
Our body is very smart knows that, and so we sweat when we sport our body sweats, secretes fluid that is to lower the muscle temperature. The problem is that sweat is trapped in clothing, and when we stopped our muscles fail to generate heat, but the humidity from our sweat that is on clothing and we still cooling.
All this stuff I tell you, so you understand that what they do thermal shirts to be “as good” is simply being made of synthetic fabrics (nylon and derivatives) that are woven fibers which do not absorb moisture cotton ….. it absorbs much moisture and takes to dry …….. all use cotton shirts …….. and this is something we have to avoid the worst thing for someone who does a sport.
What magic have the “thermal/technical” is that the nylon (think of a fragile fishing line fishing) does not absorb moisture, so dry much earlier, if this dry so we will be much more warm.
The important thing is that the shirt is a synthetic fabric that makes 80% of the effect then there are more or less pie jo’s tissues, with more or fewer treatments (to be with washes) and marks more or less known, but all are pretty good.
Then the market has been commissioned to complicate the thing to infinity, there are lots of designs: long sleeve, short sleeve, long sleeve, long sleeve high neck and zip ….. various thicknesses, medium fine and coarse, the giving throngs of combinations … .. and especially a super wide assortment of fabrics that promise to be the best.
Tissue thickness on my personal advice is that unless the want for mostly static activities Try never to buy thick shirts that are very specific and give boiling in motion
As a rule a good idea to buy shirts the finest you find, because it is important that not drench at least the first layer, if it is colder is better to get another above is what is done in mountain, so better control adjusts temperature, the fabric has thin is a relatively straightforward reason is far finer and less dry before absorbs moisture.
Thicker fabrics are only recommended if you are staying static long and do not expect intensity sports activities there that worry you is pure insulating capacity so you can opt for thicker tissues.
As for the design, personally if there is a design I like, are long-sleeved zipper collar and light colors (better if it’s hot, if it’s cold wear more clothes on so that the color has little effect) because is probably the most flexible design, always considering looking models with beautiful fabrics turtleneck us harbors more if it’s cold, and if it’s hot we have the possibility to use the zipper to ventilation, long sleeves protect us from cold, and also the sun and the heat bother us if we can roll up our sleeves.
That if we have the ability to have multiple; otherwise you end up with a small assortment (long sleeve, short and what we like)
What critical (sometimes more than the tissue) is as we have left the shirt, this can not be too tight (not lycra) but not loose, ideally sticks to our body without being tight, even doing some wrinkle.
