When high wicking and quick drying properties are high on your list the Blade is a great choice. Whether its getting out in warm weather where the long sleeve coverage is an advantage or tackling intense activities this t-shirt works brilliantly.
Lightweight, next to skin layer for standalone use in warm weather or for all season layering. The POLYGIENE® treated Apex PK fabric effectively wicks moisture and dries quickly.
Montane's Womens Blade is currently the lightest weight long sleeved t-shirt in their range. The medium size weighs in at just 104g and provides a light, airy option for warm conditions. The fabric used is high wicking and fast drying, making it ideal for warm weather and intense activities such as trail running, gym sessions or hiking. It works just as effectively as the sole layer in the sun or as part of a layer system. This long sleeved version allows added protection with the full arm coverage when you're in the sun for long periods of time.
This is a slim fit but that works well for mirroring movement when you're active. It is treated with Polygiene for odour control, which comes in handy on multiday treks and mountain marathons. The low profile seams make it more comfortable when wearing a pack too so this top is a great all-rounder but excels in the heat.
