I've used several "cooling" shirts over the years. Pretty much all of them were non-functioning snake oil bs, so I was a little bit skeptical with the purchase. But I've put it on not even three hours ago and I can't stop being amazed.
The black graphene layer works like magic. It gets immediately warm to touch and takes my heat from me. While sitting still, nothing much else happens, but when I'm moving or while air flows through like on a motorcycle, it works really well. When I'm doing light chores at home, with temperature around 23-24°C (75°F), I feel slightly chilly like it was 17°C (62°F). I can't think anything else but "What the fuck?". When I went for a little ride with just the shirt and mesh jacket (that's black), it made me really comfortable. It was around 27°C (80°F) outside with direct sun all the time. I didn't sweat at all. I tried to compare it by riding without the shirt, and I was a little sweaty (I rode for like 15 minutes). This thing makes really a big difference. Non-graphene parts are very light and perforated. All in all - amazing product.
Only downside - I'm a little bit worried, that the black layer might start to peel off a little bit over time. But that's the price of being on the vanguard of innovation. Considering price of the shirt (much less than non-functioning bs out there) and its amazing functionality, it doesn't bother me that much. I just have to be slightly more careful. I tried to wash it on cold and gentle program for 30 minutes with JUST the shirt inside, and it's okay.
Thanks for taking the time to submit this great review and feedback!
I bought the tshirt and used it in southern europe while road trip through areas with degrees between 14 and 30 in Celsius. Together with the broadcast shirt 14 degrees were bearable with my touratech boreal jacket. Degrees over 25 in Celsius are easy with the shirt. I got no sweat or cold while driving or while a break. It also is dry over night after washing.
The But: after the first cold washing I found at one point fluffs. After the second wash another point was found. That is not acceptable for such a shirt.
Hi Karin, thanks for your review. Please reach out to our customer service at moskomoto at moskomoto.com and send us some photos of the shirt and we'll see what we can do!
Thanks for your 5 stars! :-)
I purchased an ultralight base layer tee shirt off Mosko, it arrived in New Zealand super quick and is up to the usual Mosko quality, fits well and super light and breathable ... it even has small detail like a fine rubber band around the neck and waist to stop it moving around, I like wearing it (it's summer here at the moment) on a normal "non riding" day as its so breathable and looks great.
