The difference between functional tops and women's cotton tops
Both ladies' tops made from cotton as well as outdoor functional tops are extremely comfortable. You can undertake any physical activity in them. Special materials made from polyester, nylon or a combination of the two provide special breathability in functional tops. Cotton tops on the other hand tend to cling to the body. Thanks to stylish prints you can also wear them as everyday clothing. Functional hiking tops should not only prevent moisture absorption during strenuous outdoor activities; they should transport it away. This effect is visible in the fact that these ladies' shirts are particularly fast-drying. These also prevents your body from cooling down too quickly due to moisture. But not only that: in the height of summer certain outdoor tops effectively protect your skin from the sun's rays if equipped with extra UV protection. Did you know that cheap tops are also suitable for outdoor activities? Simple cotton tops are great for climbing and bouldering since the material does not rub on rough surfaces.
Synthetic or merino wool functional top? What are the benefits of each?
Are you undertaking outdoor sports in wind and weather? Then functional shirts made from merino wool are ideal since they are suitable for any time of year. In summer, they provide a cooling effect while providing extra warmth in winter: ideal for every outdoor activity. If you fancy a long winter walk then ladies' long-sleeved hiking tops are ideal. Hiking tops made from merino wool stay odour-neutral even after particularly sweat-inducing tours. This saves room in your backpack for spare clothes if you are on a long trekking tour. In contrast, synthetic functional shirts are advantageous due to their fast drying time and high tear strength. This can be particularly advantageous for water sports or climbing. The type of functional top you choose always depends on the activity you're doing.
Maximum comfort with ladies' tops
Ladies' functional tops are different to normal tops thanks to their low weight. They allow freedom of movement during outdoor activities and it's easy to pack these t-shirts in a bag without taking up lots of space or significantly increasing the weight of your backpack. These tops provide a high degree of comfort on long hikes. In addition to the logistical advantages, you should also consider that your outdoor top needs to withstand more stress than tops that you wear under a blouse. Women's sports tops should be particularly durable and flexible. This also explains why simple cotton tops are often cheaper than those made from high-tech materials. Not only is this down to the fact that outdoor functional shirts are rarely stitched and highly tear-resistant; they are amazingly easy to clean. That's a reason in itself to invest a little more!
