Training shirts from giant sports apparel brands have become more advanced than ever at keeping you dry and cooling you down even through the most intense workouts. That’s why, it’s pretty surprising when an upstart shows up and claims they have a product that will outperform every other shirt from Nike, Under Armour, and Adidas. Those lofty claims, however, are exactly what Sivil brags about with their new line of performance apparel.
Using a fabric technology called CoolCore, the shirts boast an ability to outperform every other workout apparel in the market when it comes to cooling power, drying power, and wet cling/comfort testing. They’re supposed outdo every single one by at least 30 percent better on those areas, too, making for a shirt any serious athlete probably wouldn’t mind trading in their current roster of garments for.
Sivil uses a proprietary blend of engineered fibers that enables moisture to be eliminated at a faster rate than ever via a unique capillary system, so you’ve never soaking in sweat at any point during training. It’s also designed to inhibit the growth of odor-causing bacteria, so your shirt stays dry and odor-free even in humid conditions, apart from being completely barren of any chemicals. Since training shirts need to support movement, too, it comes with two- and three-thread ActiveSeam stitching that the company claims will “fit the human body better without restricting athletic movement.”
They’re launching with four designs for now: two for men (a fitted tank and loose tee) and two for women (a fitted tank and a loose tee). The designs don’t seem awfully special, but if their technology proves legit, there’s a huge market out there for these guys.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for Sivil. Pledges to reserve a unit starts at $35.
