Under Armor Iso-Chill grow tank review
If you want to put your workout clothes to the test, walk into my makeshift garage gym every day from May through October. This place is an oven, and I found myself sweating even during the slowest, coldest 8am yoga practices. You’ll sweat through your leggings and shirt if they’re not up to the job, so when Under Armor sent me their new Iso-Chill Crop Tank ($ 50), I knew exactly where to try it.
This cropped tank top is made from the same lightweight nylon material as the Under Armor Iso-Chill Leggings, intended to help “disperse body heat” to cool your skin. When I put on the crop top it was form-fitting, smooth and comfortable, snug without being too tight. I liked the cut too; it’s high necked and sits a few inches above my belly button so you get more coverage than a sports bra while still exposing enough skin to keep you cool.
I wore the harvest tank during a 30 minute high intensity interval training (HIIT) training in my aforementioned toaster oven from a garage. I started to sweat immediately, but other than a light stain on my back, no moisture appeared on my blue tank top. The top was soft enough not to irritate my skin, and I also loved the mesh panel on the front, which added to the sleek look while helping with the cooling factor. When I was ready to take a shower, the top slipped off without the uncomfortable, wet grip you get with some shirts. (I was wearing the blue “starlight” shirt, but it is also available in black and lime green.)
I love that this tank top also keeps me cool as if I was just wearing a sports bra, but it covers the skin a bit more when I don’t feel like wearing just a bra. It’s cute, comfy and soft, and wearing it with the Iso-Chill leggings makes me feel stylish and strong, even when I’m training on my own in my garage. Hey, you must look good to yourself, right?
