Keela A.D.S Zipped Top

Keela's A.D.S. Zipped Top is a high wicking base layer for active comfort. It is made from A.D.S. (Active Dispersal System) 100 S fabric which is both lightweight and fast wicking. It is comfortable against the skin and the fit is very good. The flat lock seams avoid abrasion and there's a dropped curve on the back. The design is smart and fashionable with the secondary colour banded down either side. This is a great top that performs very well, either as a summer T-shirt or base layer is colder weather. It is also the cheaper of the two wicking tops on test here. Although the top is unisex, alternative ladies' styles are available.

Mountain Hardwear Wicked Tee

The Wicked Tee is made from a lightweight, fast drying fabric, KoolKnit high filament polyester. It is indeed very lightweight at 4 oz/113g and wicks moisture very quickly and efficiently, whether it be sweat or water from a passing summer shower. The top is simple in design, very comfortable to wear with a loose cut and has low profile flat lock seams to avoid skin abrasion. A dropped curve in the hem at the back is ideal for activities involving bending forward, such as cycling. This is a great top for hot weather hiking or biking and and we'd highly recommend it. The Mountain Hardwear range of wicked garments also includes long sleeved tops for men and women, made from KoolKnit and Coolmax. All are ideal for summer adventures.
