The Performance Thermal Baselayer is the perfect versatile base layer for all endurance sports, fast and slow. Using Cool Touch thermo yarn technology, the soft brushed interior traps warm air next to your skin without adding weight.

Review Summary

We were initially skeptical at how low price performance sportswear can survive daily wear and tear so we started off by making sure we went through at least 4 laundry cycles. This will certainly allow us to test the durability and quality of the Tribesports apparel. Surprisingly, every apparel in the Tribesports running collection that we have tested through warm and cold Californian weather came out better than expected.

As I have written many times before, once you have gone with Merino wool performance wear, you will never go back. But I was wrong. Tribesports is something in between that can bridge the gap between Merino wool and standard cotton/rayon/polyester. The fabric and design of the apparel is slightly below par to those from Ashmei, Smartwool, and Icebreaker, but you are getting the best bang for your buck.

A couple of things to note that could be a big plus or a big minus to some. The men's Performance Half-Zip Top and Performance Thermal Baselayer are both slim fit or athletic fit. You may need to size up if you are not comfortable wearing skin tight running apparel. The women's Performance Half-Zip Top is not as slim fit as the men's though.

I am not a big fan of the extra length in the Performance Thermal Baselayer in warm weather as I prefer any additional cooling and air flow to my body as much as possible. Another nit I found is that I cannot wear the Performance Thermal Baselayer with the Performance Half-Zip Top. It is very tight even though I am slim and wear slim fit for all my clothes. The combination is almost impossible to put on as the fabric from both outfits seem to stick together and not allow me to slip them on without a lot of effort.

My female wear tester loved the Performance Capri and with all the Merino wool running Capris she has tested from Smartwool and Icebreaker, the Tribesports is almost on par with these performance brands!

If you are looking for affordable performance running wear, Tribesports is a no brainer. You'll get high quality fabric and good looking designs at a discount!

The Tribesports collection is now available for at the Tribesports shop online.
