Review: CoreSport Workout Shirt


This fall CoreSport sent over a shirt for me to try, or as they call it the ultimate workout shirt. After a month or so of testing it and putting it through some interesting challenges, it’s time to share a few thoughts.

CoreSport uses perspiration activated fabric which actually helps you stay cool the harder you workout and sweat. While I have yet to be able to test the shirt in the extreme heat of the desert here in the Utah Summers it has worked well both during classes inside and outside doing gardening, cleaning chicken coops, chopping wood, and other manual labor around our house.

How does the shirt keep you dry?

CoreSport is made of poly/dacron with antibacterial bamboo charcoal fibers, the shirt wicks away moisture, dissipates heat and protects against UV rays. This also helps to make sure that you don’t end up a stinky mess after a training session. However, I think my favorite part of the shirt is that it is UV protectant, which is a must living here in the high desert.

To test the stink factor I deliberately decided to wear it several training sessions without washing and tried to see if the claim stood up. After a couple training sessions, the smell was almost non-existent and will be in my pack for weekend camping/mountain biking trips in the springtime down south.

Overall, CoreSport is a cool new product that is a great addition to your training wardrobe.
