soq.de is the leading German online magazine for the specialty sport retail trade, the sport article sector and the world of sport and recreation. soq.de has its finger on the pulse with its own successful biking and running team. Editor in Chief, Tom Tittmann, asked soq.de team athlete Sven Meier to put a polo shirt from Schoeller Technologies through its paces.

“I was able to thoroughly test the polo shirt which was part of our soq.de enduranceteam kit in the heat during a three-week trip to South Africa. I wore it to many functions and on short trips in my leisure time. The light, black fabric feels very pleasant against the skin. At first glance, you can see the high-quality workmanship and sporty elegance of the coldblack shirt.

“The reflective effect and cooling properties are clearly felt in the sunshine. I never noticed that I was wearing a black garment although I was sitting right under the African sun. Only when asked how I could wear black in that heat did I become aware of this fact. The polo shirt still looked wrinkle-free even after being packed and unpacked numerous times. I observed no static loading whatsoever while wearing it. The fabric remained odor-neutral even after repeated wear at high temperatures.

“It can be machine-washed at 40°, but according to the manufacturer, no fabric softener should be used. In my opinion, the polo shirt does not need ironing as it looks practically wrinkle-free after air-drying. A super effect, as I can make much better use of the time I have saved! The UV protection gave me great reassurance as I am very fair-skinned and get sunburned easily.”

Conclusion. “The areas of use for this type of coldblack® polo shirt® with 3XDRY® function is wide-ranging and can be highly recommended not only for trips to sunny regions. Whether on hiking trips, during other outdoor activities, or as sporty eveningwear the functionality is enormously convincing. It is a stalwart companion when you have to keep luggage to a minimum, for example on a trekking tour, or are not able to or inclined to wash clothes. In the sun, wearing the shirt I felt better and more energetic,” states Meier.
