Padua II Dri-Release T-shirt Base Layer for Women
Colours: Purple, Black
Features to Note:

- Patented permanent performance
The Padua II top from Tog 24 is what is known as a technical t-shirt. As such it combines features such as wicking and quick drying with a more contemporary design.
And it does these things really quite well. It's very comfortable to wear and kept me dry even during periods of heavy exercise in some pretty hot weather. Moreover, I've washed it several times now and its performance and fit are still good without any evidence of pilling or shrinkage.
And yes the odour masking does seem to perform well so if necessary it can be worn several times. But it does wash well and I've been quite happy to wear it straight from the line.
However, because there's no collar nor a zip opening to provide additional ventilation, the Padua would not be my first choice for a long day's summer walking.
Whilst not really the best option for a long day walk, the Tog 24 Padua is a flexible, cool t-shirt for summer travel or general leisure wear. It's certainly a more comfortable option for hot weather than the standard fashion offerings.
