The women's Montane Snap Zip Tank is a super lightweight and breathable top, constructed using two technical fabrics to create a comfortable and fast drying baselayer.
Apex-Lite fabric is a super lightweight grid structure fabric with the capability to dry extremely fast. This has been combined super wicking bi-construction Apex-Pro across the back under the arms, which can handle moisture extremely effectively, making the Snap Tank a technical high performance trail baselayer vest. Both fabrics are treated with POLYGIENE® permanent odour control, so the Snap series really can become your second skin.
The women's Montane Snap Tank is a little more technical than your average baselayer, and this is all down to the fabrics used. The main fabric used (Apex-Lite) moves excess moisture away from the skin to evaporate when you work up a sweat. You can see it's micro grid construction if you look really close.
The second fabric used (Apex-Pro) is even more effective wicking in the core areas where sweat can build up and create chill, hence being positioned across the back and under the arms.
Both fabrics have been treated with Polygiene permanent odour control meaning it can be worn on multiple days without the need for washing every time.
With low profile seams and a tailored collar, this soft feeling baselayer could soon be a favourite for running and hiking.
