So summer is coming, and with it high temperatures and sweaty jerseys, so I thought I’d pull my Manchester United Vapor V-Neck out of the closet and give it a once over. The first thing I like about this top is the coloring. I love the jet black chest with the white Nike swoosh in the center, and it looks class with red on the arms and sides. It also hasa Manchester United badge on it, near the lower left corner, and its generally a quality piece of kit.
Its a compression top at heart, but, its designed to keep you cool on those hot days. Its got mesh panel running through out the shirt, and the material wicks a away moisture from your body so it feels cool on your skin when you’re on the run or the wind catches it. It also won’t ride up under your game jersey if you have it on underneath while playing a match. It also got anti-friction tape on the tops of the shoulders so it won’t rub on anything you have on over it.
Overall, its a good piece of kit, and does the job when your trying to keep cool on a hot day. That said, its a black shirt, so wear something over it if you’re playing in full sun as all the technology in the world won’t change the fact dark clothes get hotter in the sun.
