Light and tight, base layer long sleeve tops are designed to be your second skin during any sporting activity. From the demands of rugby to muscle support in any sport, a functional long sleeve base layer top is one which is flexible, supportive and barely feels like it is being worn at all.
Just like base layer leggings and shorts, base layer tops can be worn during or after any level of sporting activity as a form of support and enhancing recovery. The fact that they are so thin and comfortable is testament to the fabric involved, it won’t appear you are wearing an extra layer but it will certainly feel like you performance is enhanced.
For athletes who prefer to colour co-ordinate their sporting kit then there is a base layer long sleeve top to suit every need. Black, white, blue, red, green, orange, pink and even multi-colours will perfectly match your training and match attire.
At the leading end of technological and material advances, the Skins A200 Series thermal compression top has been specifically designed to wrap and support key muscle groups which dramatically reduces muscle vibration resulting in less soft tissue damage. Their fit is also second to none as a unique incorporated BMI calculation takes into account the wearers’ height, weight and chest for an optimum fit.
Hot and Cold
Even the most dedicated athlete doesn’t like training in the cold and so the Canterbury base layer cold shirt goes some way to alleviating this displeasure. Canterbury’s moisture transport system moves sweat away from the body and has been specifically developed to cope with life on the rugby field. For athletes who really feel the cold then Under Armour cold long sleeve tops are enhanced with a turtle-neck collar for a snug yet supportive fit from waist to neck. When the temperature rises, the Canterbury base layer hot shirt keeps you cool whether worn under other layers or simply on its own. Light weight without compromising support and protection, the heat of the battle will only make you cooler.
