Horny Toad Swifty Pocket Long Sleeve Tee

Horny Toad is all about finding fun, doing good, and being comfortable in the process. A true crossover brand, the company has created a collection of performance apparel that looks just as good playing around town as it does on the trail. 

The Swifty performance collection uses a knit fabric that is made from a blend of drirelease recycled polyester, Tencel, and spandex. The small bit of spandex gives the fabric some flex but also helps the garment hold its shape, especially after numerous washings. 

Soft to the touch, drirelease fabric is constructed out of a blend of 85-90% hydrophobic/synthetic (water-repelling) fabrics and 10-15% natural/hydrophilic (water-loving) fibers. This combination works together to grab liquid away from your skin and push it to the outside of the fabric where it can evaporate quickly.

FreshGuard is an odor neutralizer that is embedded in all drirelease fabrics that works by blocking odor-causing sebaceous body oils from attaching to the fabric. This in turn stops the attraction of odor-causing bacteria. Unlike anti-microbial treatments, FreshGuard is a process that is built directly into drirelease fabrics so won't come out in the wash.

The drirelease website claims the fabric won't discolor with perspiration, a statement with which I have to disagree. When you start to get moving, your sweat is most definitely going to show. Luckily, the fabric dries out relatively quickly once you stop. Although drirelease does have odor resistant properties, you are going to run into the stink factor after continued use. You can probably get away with a couple of heavy duty outings before you need to throw the apparel in the wash and it usually comes out smelling nice and clean. 

I have been wearing both the Swifty Pocket Long Sleeve Tee and Swifty Hoodie for hiking, climbing, running, and even mountain biking. Design features such as the twisted trim, angled seam details, asymmetric necklines, and drop-in front pocket add a bit of urban style to usually straightforward outdoor apparel.

You wouldn't normally think of wearing a hoody in hot, sunny weather but they have quickly become a staple for me. There is nothing better to help shield your face and neck from the baking sun than a hoody. The Horny Toad Swifty Knit fabric is lightweight, breathable, and wicking enough that wearing a hood isn't going to make you any hotter than if you did not. 

Bottom Line: If you want to add a bit of urban style to your outdoor or workout wardrobe, check out the Swifty performance collection from Horny Toad.
