The Kitsbow Men's Radiator T-Shirt is suited for conquering trails in stifling-hot conditions when others flee to chlorine-filled swimming pools and stale, air-conditioned rooms. The secret to the Kitsbow's cool comfort lies within its tech-savvy materials and close-to-body fit, which emphasizes moisture removal while minimizing flapping at speed. A touch of spandex stretch means the Radiator T-Shirt conforms to your every move when you're blasting around corners and launching drops on the trail.
Polartec Power Dry is a mechanical wicking fabric that's far superior to common synthetics on the market. Essentially, it pulls moisture away from the skin where it can dry quickly for an evaporative cooling effect. Unlike many synthetic wicking materials, Polartec Power Dry's wicking attributes won't wash out over time, which means you'll stay just as cool on ride one as ride one hundred. Plus, the permanent wicking properties of Polartec Delta fabric along your body's hottest zones (underarms and sides) ensures optimum temperature regulation in oppressive temperatures.

I used this on two recent rock climbs, and although I do like the Polartec material and the fact that it doesn't smell after use, it is a bit too beefy for hot weather, as advertised. I run hot in the first place, and I found myself a bit overheated at times. I really like the North Face Better Than Naked line and the Arc'Teryx Velox t shirts in comparison. But if you run cold, then I could see this as being a great fit. Speaking of fit, I felt it was on par with a Hanes T shirt or similar cheap manufacturer, so that was disappointing.
