When you’re ready to hit the gym, meet your fitness goals, or set new records, you deserve a workout shirt that will be behind you every step of the way. It can be challenging to decide which of the many activewear options available today is best for your needs, but there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind on the journey.
What To Look For In A Workout Shirt
The type of fabric your shirts are made of, any extra features that may be available, and even the tech used to create your shirt can go a long way to helping you find that perfect fit. tasc Performance is here to help. We believe you should have access to materials and garments that fit all your lifestyle needs in a responsible and sustainable way. That’s why we’re focused on blending sustainable materials and production with high-impact individual goals—and it all starts with the right shirt.
There are many different types of activewear fabrics, and it’s important to take the time to explore your options. Not only can the right fabric help you stay cool and comfortable on every workout, but it can also tell you a lot about the values of the company you’re purchasing from.
Natural fibers like bamboo also don’t require a chemical finish to work well for performance—those characteristics that many synthetic fabrics are treated to obtain are inherent to the bamboo fibers. Natural fibers also last longer and breathe easier, so it’s always a good idea to look at what kind of fabrics your next workout shirts are made with.
That next workout shirt isn’t all about the fabric. The extra features that come with it can also help to contribute to the next great routine, hike, or training session. There are many different ways to enhance your activity, but take a look at shirts that come with features like anti-odor builds and moisture-wicking properties for a more comfortable workout every time.
More than ever, new technology is contributing to the sustainable fashion movement, which means you can expect to find advanced and innovative technology at every stage of garment production and use. New technology can mean a reduced impact on the environment, as well as many health and safety benefits like sun protection.
Here at Tasc Performance, we believe in comfortable, reliable clothes that don’t leave behind a trace. That’s why we’re focused on producing clothing with natural fibers. Our shirts don’t require additional chemicals for performance, and they last longer, which means less waste in the long and short term. Here are some other benefits to using natural materials.
Sustainability is a popular phrase today, and there’s a good reason for it. Many of the clothes available to us are created through methods that require deforestation, vast quantities of water, and other non-reusable resources.
They also retain scents and odors because of the chemicals, which can mean your workout gear is difficult to clean. Sustainable materials support the earth, save you money over time, and help to improve your every workout.
That’s why we believe in the power of bamboo. Bamboo is one of the natural fibers that makes up the comfortable workout shirts available here at tasc Performance. The material is breathable, comfortable, and flexible, so it can be used for many different activities with ease, whether you’re hiking at the height of summer or hitting it hard at the gym.
Organic cotton is another one of the important materials that can be used to create the workout shirts you love. It’s cultivated without any chemicals and can actually be a huge asset to local ecological systems. Organic cotton is also biodegradable and will break down in just a few months, which means you can dispose of it responsibly.

The chemicals that are often used in synthetic garment production are odor trapping. That means that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to remove the smell of sweat after it’s set in, which can mean replacing your clothes more often than you would like.
Organic materials won’t trap smells in the same way, so cleaning them is a simple, straightforward process, and you’ll be able to enjoy wearing your favorite comfortable workout shirts for years to come.
Bamboo materials are all about ventilation. The space between the natural fibers allows for generous airflow in and out, which helps to keep the shirt cool and dry. Along with its lightweight nature, bamboo textiles can help to regulate your body temperature and even prevent uncomfortable chafing.
Bamboo is naturally grown in humid environments. That makes it the perfect natural choice for moisture-wicking fabric, a type of material designed to keep you dry, which helps to maintain body temperature. Moisture-wicking properties keep the sweat off your skin, which is both useful during your workout and after, so you never have to worry about sitting around in a soaked and sweaty shirt post-gym class.
A surprising amount of technology goes into producing the new workout shirts we rely on. Not only will you find technology in the production process, but it also adds benefits to the materials and shirts themselves. Here are a few of the techs to watch for in Tasc Performance workout gear.
Quality Fabric Blends
We use a specific blend of fabrics including bamboo and organic cotton materials, combined through a unique knitting process that requires fewer seams and stitches in your workout shirts. It’s incredibly versatile and flexible, and the breathable, comfortable material is useful for travel, activity, and leisure.
If you’re headed outside for fresh air, it’s a good idea to bring some sun protection, as well. Our bamboo materials have that built-in, with an Ultraviolet Protection Factor of more than 50, meaning that you’ll be safe from more than 98% of the sun’s UV rays. Take the hike, bike, or ride with ease, thanks to bamboo UPF you can rely on.
Comfortable, flexible, and protective workout shirts can make all the difference when it comes to meeting your activity goals, and tasc Performance is here to help. We believe in creating clothing that benefits the individual and the world as a whole, which is why we use low-impact natural fibers in our clothes, and why they’re sure to last you through many, many workouts.
Our bamboo and organic cotton products are light-weight and breathable, and their comfortable, flexible nature means they’re perfect for any type of activity—even if it’s just spending time with friends and family. Check out other benefits like odor and sun protection and moisture-wicking properties, which can make every workout comfortable, cool, and dry.
