My nephew Stefan and niece Mai Mai just got back from their week-long vacation in Japan and they gave me a pasalubong I truly like and will use in my running adventures in this tropical and humid country of ours.
They gifted me with a royal blue the Under Armour® Men's HeatGear® Sonic Compression Shortsleeve T-shirt.
The shirt features HeatGear® Sonic which is UA’s newest baselayer innovation. It is bandied out as wearing like a "second skin". The UA website elaborates further on the technology the shirt packs:
- Smooth fabric provides extreme comfort and compression without restriction
·4-Way Stretch fabrication allows greater
mobility and maintains shape
·Signature Moisture Transport System wicks
sweat away from the body
·Anti-Odor technology prevents the growth
of odor causing microbes
·Smooth, chafe-free flatlock seam
·Engineered mesh neck
·Polyester/Elastane. This shirt is made of 84% polyester and 16% elastane for a comfortable and stretchy fit.
A stretchy fit indeed and the shirt feels and smells great. One drawback though is that you need to have an Adonis-like body to do justice to the elastane attributes of the UA compression shirts. But then again, to get in great shape is one of the reasons why we take up running in the first place.
UA points to innovation as the heart and soul of their brand. Kudos to Under Armour® for all the innovation.

Thank you, Mai Mai and Stephan, for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Likewise to their parents, Divine and Alex.
