Functional shirts for outdoor activities – reliable all-round protection
Functional shirts provide reliable protection when you make high demands on your body during outdoor activities. Special synthetic fibres wick away moisture from the skin and keep you dry. Treat yourself to a high wearing comfort and find the functional shirt in the Grube shop which will meet your requirements.
Plenty of functions in a single shirt
Do not restrict your view to teh functions of your outer garment: it ist most important to wear the right basis layer!
Functional shirts have the following characteristics:
- high breathability
- perfect body climate regulation
- low weight
- flat seams
- odor resistant
- cooling effect on hot days
- warming effect in cold and frost
The functional shirt adheres to the body like a second skin. A close body fit is intended since it is favorable to breathability . Moisture which generates on the skin is thus rapidly transported to the outside passing through the textile fabric to finally evaporate. The result is a pleasant dryness from which your health will benefit. This is very uinlike damp clothing which cools down the body in periods of rest causing the wearer to freeze.
The right material mix makes the difference
Functional shirts consist in large pars of synthetic fibres such as polyester, polyamid or polypropylen.These materials perform well when it comes to transport off moisture. When a small percentage of elasthane is present this will support freedom of movement as well as a close body fit.
For warmer temperatures shirts with a high percentage of synthetic fibres are a good choice. For wintry conditions when warming properties are called for your functional shirts should contain a good portion of lambswool or marinowool. Wool stemming from merino sheep has high insulating capabilities and tends to develep only a small amount of odour.
Find the perfect functional shirt
Functional shirts are always to be preferred over against pure cotton shirts which retain moisture, the more so when you pursue movement intensive and sweaty activities e.g. :
- hard physical work
- work in the garden
- hiking, hill walking, climbing
- other types of outdoor sports
Functional shirts are availble in long-sleeved and T-Shirt versions. Your decision will depend on your personal feeling of well-being . And, of cousrse, on the weather and on how many layers you intend to wear on top.
Long-sleeved shirts with prolonged back, raised collar and thumb holes can be particularly recommended for the cold season. The prolonged back ensures optimum moistrue regulation around the sensitive kidney zone whereas the roll-up collar will protect against a cold draft upon the neck. Functional shirts with a medium length zip are comfortable to put on and get out of and facilitate self-regulated ventilation.
In frosty temperatures you will feel particularly good in functional shirts by Woolpower or Nordforest Hunting. Supplement your wintry outfit by fleecejackets, wind- and watertight outdoor jackests as well as with warming hats and gloves.
