As an active woman, I participate in number of different sports. Gone are the days when you tossed on your husband’s sweatpants and an over sized t-shirt to exercise. Women today want to look stylish while exercising whether that means a workout at the gym or a round of golf with colleagues from the office.
Regular street wear isn’t appropriate for working out. It doesn’t breathe properly and in many cases, it’s not designed for comfort and range of motion. Antigua has developed a line of moisture wicking clothing that is ideal for the active man or woman. Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite features moisture-wicking with specially constructed ultra-light fabrics for maximum wicking performance and optimum comfort. Moisture wicking keeps the moisture away from your skin and is extra breathable for comfort. This feature is perfect for active wear when your body heats up either from exercise or being out in the hot sun all day.
I was extremely impressed with the quality of the Antigua Desert Dry and Desert Dry Xtra-Lite shirts I received. The fabric on both is extremely soft and light weight which is ideal for comfort. I found that the wicking meant the fabric was very breathable which helped keep me dry even while exercising in the hot summer weather. What really made the shirts from Antigua stand out for me was the stylish accents they included.
The Desert Dry shirt I received was the Womens Tone 100054. It is a very fashionable tonal striped jacquard short sleeve shirt with 3-button placket, solid insets, flat knit collar and open sleeves. It’s made of 100% polyester and is available in sizes small to extra large. Colors include navy, dark red, mango, dark royal, birch, white and black.
I also had the opportunity to receive a Desert Dry Xtra-Lite Keen 100318 which is a pointelle 1/2 sleeve tab cuff polo with 5-button top-set placket, self collar, contrast self fabric detail at cuff and placket, forward shoulder and side slits. The Desert Dry Xtra-Lite shirt is also made of 100% polyester but the Xtra-Lite moisture wicking makes this shirt super soft and buttery to the touch. It has the same stylish attention to detail but the shirt literally felt like you weren’t wearing one. Sizes include small to extra large and this shirt is available in birch/sand, scarlet/sand, sangria/birch and pacific/birch.
I did find that the sizing leaned a bit toward the smaller size especially in the shoulder area. I would suggest you order one size up if you generally find that your shirts are tight in the shoulder area. This was less noticeable in the Keen than the Tone styles. I’d highly recommend Antigua for stylish, comfortable sports apparel.
