Castore’s long-sleeve Anatomic Mesh Mix Panel Training Tee is made for shifting up through the gears and tackling intense workouts.
Castore Anatomic Mesh Mix Panel Training Tee features
The tee is made from a durable, lightweight fabric that’s a blend of polyester and elastane. It has a series of panels, strategically placed for an ergonomic fit. For a long-sleeve workout tee, that really helps give it a good range of movement, making it suitable for more dynamic outdoor drills. It can also double up as a second layer for colder runs, rides and other sessions.

The soft and stretchy fabric feels great and it’s looser fitting for a more forgiving, flattering look. However, there are a lot of seams in the panelled design and even though they’re all flat-lock, they’re raised and you do notice them. So you can expect a fussier feel than you’ll find on simpler, seamless training tops. That’s particularly true around the forearms.

On the plus side, there’s an aerated mesh back panel that improves air flow and helps shift heat from around your shoulder blades. There’s also some small reflective laser-cut eyelets in the front, on panels close to the armpits, again to improve cooling and breathability. Though any improvement is minimal as they’re tiny.
The Castore Anatomic Mesh Mix Panel Training Tee only comes in navy but is available in six sizes from XS to XXL.
