Mens Journal´s testing division Gear Lab has tested the Polygiene treated La Sportiva Kuma-shirt. They where out running for 2 weeks using the same shirt, with impeccable results.
“For two weeks, we abused the Kuma 2.0 shirt, to see just how well it performed. We ran in the shirt five times a week, at least an hour long each. We broke the tee in on a dry, dusty trail run in Utah, on which we tumbled on the singletrack, coating it in dirt and blood. Fresh off that trail run, we dumped it in a plastic baggie and stashed it in a suitcase for 24 hours during our trip back east. Amazingly, it didn’t reek when we peeled back the lid of the suitcase. So we kept wearing it, on some of the muggiest, hottest days of summer in the Northeast. Each time, we hung it from a door knob to drip dry. Those same conditions render a generic tech tee too funky to stomach after just one or two runs, at most. But the Kuma 2.0 never faltered — we didn’t have to hold our breath when pulling it over our head, and could wear it around other people without worry of offending them.”
