I purchased a dark color in this shirt. Even then, I can hold the shirt up to the light and see through both layers. It is very thin material. I guess that is the way modern shirts are made nowadays, across the board. I have purchased ladies Carhartt tee in the past . Earlier version was a sturdy material that did not cling to the body and was a flattering fit, could be worn alone. Thin materials show everything, and are made more for layering not wearing alone, especially doing physical work in a workplace setting! I will keep my new shirt but seems like a lot of money for a very thin material.
If you are a fitness person, this product is for you! I got the Force Quarter zip and T shirt from my son as a Birthday gift. He had gotten me a size small and I thought it would be too small as I am pretty muscular and I have thick arms! It fit perfect, and I normally wear a Medium in all of my other fitness shirts. But the best part of this apparel is that not only does it actually fit well, it wicks away sweat and keeps me cooler and is far more superior in function than my Under Armor shirts! The quarter zip is the perfect little shirt for pre and post workouts and I need to be getting more pieces of this product line. Carhartt, can you please add more colors to this line???
