The new BLACKHAWK Warrior Wear Thermostatic Base-Layer™ garments Engineered Fit™ series is designed to regulate body temperature, wick out moisture, inhibit and control the growth of odor causing bacteria, and provide the wearer with total freedom of movement with maximum comfort. The Engineered Fit series uses material technology that allows the wearer to choose between a body-contoured Standard Fit and a full Compression Fit simply by size selection. To achieve a Compression Fit, or a true next-to-the-skin fit, select a size one down from your normal size. The Compression Fit eliminates any potential friction related “hotspots” and helps to reduce muscle fatigue.
The garments have a smooth matte-finish to reduce bulk when layering. Stretch mesh panels in all the garments enhance the freedom of movement and help to dissipate body heat. Flat-seam construction and a seamless top-of-shoulder construction prevent irritation. Available in the spring of 2009, the Engineered Fit series of shirts includes:
