XGO Men’s Powerskins PT Shirt: Grey Heath
XGO garments are entirely made in the USA and are used by the US Army, US Special Forces, the FBI, the US Marine Corps, State police and many others. XGO's mantra is 'Athlete Tested, Combat Proven'. This is some of the best kit in the world.
The XGO Men’s Powerskins PT Shirt Grey Heath is an all purpose garment featuring 4 way stretch, clean seams for reduced rubbing and superior wicking properties. This shirt is built on a relaxed fit and ideal for physical training in hot to temperate weather conditions.
Base layers with Acclimate® Dry are designed to be the highest quality, most comfortable and best-performing layering systems for any climate or situation. Acclimate Dry fabrics offer superior wicking, breathability, and quick drying time. Acclimate® Dry performance fabrics wick and dissipate perspiration and moisture away from the skin—keeping the wearer dry and comfortable for extended periods of activity. These base layers maximise your body’s natural temperature regulation and dissipate moisture more effectively than anything else on the market.
The XGO Men’s Powerskins PT Shirt Grey Heath also includes Ag47 silver anti-microbial protection. Silver is legendary for its anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties and has been ‘built-in’ to XGO’s products. As moisture passes through the fabric, Ag 47 Silver Anti-Microbials attack the bacteria contained in the perspiration and effectively eliminate odour and harmful bacteria--improving overall hygiene.
Ag47 silver anti-microbial protection keeps you odour-free allowing extended wear in endurance situations, and all of these properties are designed to endure for the life of the garment.

Lightweight Relaxed Fit Skin
Men's PowerSkins Lightweight Relaxed Fit t-shirt in grey heather one large - product code is 1GH16M)
The materials used give the top a very soft, light feel. In grey heather this top is a great body skin to wear under any other garment. The double stitching gives the top strength and comfort. The crew neck encourages a snug but comfortable fit around the nape of the neck and the dropped shoulder seams have been done in such a way that it runs across the back and front of your shoulder to the arms as opposed to across the top centre. No more bruising across the top of the shoulder and trapezius if used whilst squatting on machines.
I have a size Large which fits amazingly well. I was concerned as with other brands they either come up too long in length or too tight on the arm. The fit of the top sculpts itself to the contours but has the added comfort of sitting just right across the torso.
I have worn the skin under my patrol uniform. It was comfortable and allowed absorption of perspiration ensuring that my outer layer remained dry and fresh.
I have also worn the skin solely whilst playing 5-aside football. Again I cannot fault the skin. It stood up to 1.5 hours constant game time with end to end sprints. The skin was damp at the end but still fresh. The air was able to circulate the skin there were no bad odours.
When washing, I followed the label instructions and have no issues with the top. It has maintained its integrity and is as though it has come out of a new packet.
Happy with this product I recommend it as a Lightweight relaxed fit Skin. I will be happy to purchase and use on a daily basis when on my tour of duty.
Good Functional T-Shirt
The t-shirt comes well packaged with full sizing information on the packaging along with features and care instructions.
The features on the packaging are listed as follows;
• Dropped Shoulder Seams
• Acclimate® Dry-Moisture Wicking
• Silver Anti-Microbial Protection
• Extreme Comfort
On taking the T-shirt out of the packaging first impressions are that this is a lightweight well-made T-shirt. The T-shirt is quite thin and has a small unobtrusive POWERSKINS® symbol on the lower left hand side of the T-Shirt. The T-shirt I was testing was light grey.
I am around 5’10 in height and I had the medium size on test. Previous base layer T-shirts that I have tried have tended to be quite figure hugging. This T-shirt seems to go against this and as stated on the packaging is a relaxed fit. I found the T-shirt quite comfortable to wear and it did not restrict motion in any way.
The T-shirt features flat seams and dropped seams on the shoulders which I like as they reduce irritation especially carrying a rucksack etc.
I wore the T-shirt for several hours underneath body armour, overalls and a tac vest whilst running about. The T-shirt performed very well and kept me feeling quite cool and more importantly didn’t soak up the sweat. The only area that did seem to get a bit damp was at the back however this is to be expected when wearing in under body armour. On exposure to the air the T-shirt dried very quickly.
The T-shirt didn’t smell of sweat after wearing it which is probably due to the Anti-Microbial protection built in to the T-shirt however it is not known how long this will last for.
The T-shirt itself is very easy to care for, chuck it in the washing machine, hang it up and it is good to go. Due to being so lightweight it dries quite quickly.
As for the general styling of the T-shirt I’d say that it is primarily suited for wearing as a base layer or for when out doing PT and not one you would wear if popping down to the local pub etc.
Overall this is a functional T-shirt that does what it is supposed to do and I would rate it around 7/10.
