ALTURA ARE DOING a stunning job of producing kit that both looks good and performs like it should cost a lot more, and the Thermocool is a fine example of this. It uses a variable knit, with different densities of fabric in different areas depending on the position on the body.
The result is a top that's a very good fit - it's close-fitting but isn't at all restrictive or binding, with incredibly good flexibility through arms and shoulders. The very clever knit construction means that there are no side seams either - it sounds a tiny detail but adds to overall comfort in a big way.
