Sprayway Solstice (2012)

This base-layer is made from eco-friendly Cocona fabric, made from the activated carbon of recycled coconut shells. It’s really soft to the touch, and the activated carbon wicks away sweat very quickly indeed. It makes the fabric very breathable too. The carbon doesn’t do a lot to prevent bad odours, though – so unless you’re one of those women that doesn’t sweat at all, the underarms will start ponging almost as soon as you put it on. That said, the fabric feels lovely next to the skin, especially in warm weather, and the zip neck allows extra ventilation when you need it. The sleeves pull up easily too. Quite a technical looking base-layer, so not great for casual use.
