Hmm ... there’s baggy as in, “I’ve got tons of attitude, me”, and there’s, well, just baggy. And although the Rivet sits nicely across the shoulders, its body feels more sloppy than relaxed if you wear it without armour.
But even though there’s a lot of it, the fabric itself is smooth and feels extremely comfortable on. The lighter open mesh inserts really make a difference on warmer days.
The ﬁnish and quality with sublimated print sleeves, a taped back neck that prevents chaﬁng, and discreet zipped back pocket are good for the price point.
There’s also a simple pleasure in just being able to pull on a top that’s as uncomplicated as a T-shirt, but that has the ability to deal with all the dust, sweat and tears of another day on the trail.
