About Descente C6 Tri Shirt - Sleeveless (For Men)
Closeouts. Pair Descente's C6 tri shirt with an equally performance-hearty pair of shorts on race day, and you'll be virtually unstoppable! Quick-drying Aero-XT fabric technology reduces air and water friction for lower drag, and moisture-wicking D-Vente microdenier mesh helps regulate temperature. Resistex carbon fibers eliminate static, reduce bacteria and lower the concentration of cramp-causing lactic acid in muscles.

I bought this shirt for a triathlon and it worked out very well. The fit is very tight and trim and took some maneuvering to get into and out of (keep in mind that it is used for muscle compression during long races so it designed to be extremely supportive). If you are between sizes, you might want to go larger with this one. Once on, it felt like a second skin and provided good wicking and ventilation. It dried very fast after the swim and was barely noticeable during the bike and run. The only improvement that I would make is to modify the zipper pull to be lower profile when zipped all the way up. It wasn't bad but could be better as it lightly chafed the chest during the run. Overall, this is a great shirt with excellent support.
Looks great and is very well made - Buy it if you can it to fit - I usually am between and small (snug) and a medium depending on the brands - I bought this in Large (thanks to the other reviews) and it fit rather tight - just more motivation to loose those last couple pounds! I'm 5'7" / 146 with a larger upper body vs. lower. I've bought other Descente products and they tend to run about 1/2 size smaller than usual - this was way smaller.

great top, and really great price. definitely runs small, though. i usually wear a medium in just about everything, but i ordered both a medium and a large, just in case. the medium was way, way too tight. the large fit like a triathlon top should...tight, but still able to breathe.
