I dont understand how compression can draw sweat away from your skin. If your skin is all over up, isnt it cause more sweat? And no cotton means no absortion.

Just for material comparisons, I also have Addidas, reebook and Puma shirts. I wear the starter Non-Compreassion the most in the gym.
The material is a tad heavier and it feels less plastiky to me...
Now that I think of it, I do own other brands. I also have one in Nike and Fila brands. The Starter material is similar to the Nike material, except the Starter snags easier. The Fila material is awful and actually collects sweat, so I never use it (I think I threw it away.)

It works like the heat sink in your computer. If your heat sink were made of cotton, that would't be good.

Relaxed fit and compression shirt are kind of a contradiction in terms.
Quote from Sam Hobbs View Post :
Would that not defeat the purpose? Or is that like putting water-proofing a Goretex boot (a woman once was proud of her boyfriend for doing that)?


I think so. I would expect that if material wicks away the sweat then it needs to be next to the skin.
This is made out of the same materials as relaxed "wicking" work out shirts correct (Polyester/Spandex)? I understand your points, but for me, it isn't about function. I prefer the feel of these over cotton, and its much more comfortable than feeling like I have a sweat soaked cotton rag against my skin.

Go with the Eastbay 2 for $20 [eastbay.com] deal if you want "relaxed" fit.
Thanks for pointing that out... I saw the FP post, but didn't notice that it also included the relaxed versions. Repped!

I have a couple of these Starter compression t-shirts and, so far, I really like them. I use them to wear as a base layer when I go snowboarding or motorcycle riding and they work great. Wick away the sweat and, this is probably just in my head but recovery times seem to be a little quicker.

I've also used UA, Nike, Adidas, and other compression gear and while it is not as "nice" in regards to quality and feel, it gets the job done. The only thing I don't like about the gear is that the material hates velcro and will get snags if it rubs against it.

Regarding sizing, they are pretty true to size. Sure they are tight but that's what compression gear is all about. If you wear a large, get a large. The only thing that's a little odd about them is that they are a little longer in length than other compression shirts.



Not really. You probably are thinking of just a normal T-shirt which, yeah, that's a normal price. Compression is different and the normal price for this at WalMart is about $11. If you were to buy UA/Nike/Adidas, that cost would be well into the $30s.
Nope, found it for $7 at my TJ Max today when I went out for lunch.

Then you will want to wear a tight shirt, which brings us full circle. You are someone that will always disagree; you don't intend to be reasonable. I give up.

Not necessarily... ahem not to brag, but I am one of those that doesn't need a skin tight shirt to show off these gunz (arms stretch shirt especially when I'm pumped on NO2) n' washboard (I sweat my ab creases/sections even on relaxed shirts). Flex

Disagree on sweating? LOL you do know that thermoregulation is normal? I'm not the one to just walk on a treadmill for a "work out"... I like to get my heart rate up.

In my experience the dri-star stuff is 3 sizes smaller, but you're supposed to be wearing something effectively 2 sizes small and stretching it onto yourself anyways, but I'd still go at least one size up in these.
