Best Undershirts & Solutions For Back & Chest Sweat

Looking for ways to manage back and chest sweat? Want to find sweat-blocking undershirts? You’ve come to the right place.

This article covers quite a bit (15 min read), so here are links so you can jump to sections of the article that interest you the most.

Be sure to check out my Top 9 Sweat Management Solutions article. It contains information about sweat blocking undershirts, sweat proof underwear, various antiperspirant & sweat-reducing options, and much more.

To start, here’s an email from a reader in search of a sweat-proof undershirt. Or, at least one that would prevent sweat-through more than his cotton undershirts.

Tug,

I am glad I found someone I can ask about undershirts.

I sweat very easily and live in Houston Texas which is humid.

My white T Shirts always get yellow brown underarm stains.

In addition, I like to dance and cannot dance more than a couple of songs before my 100% normal cotton V-neck undershirt fills up and sweat comes through the back and the front.

Coming through on the sleeves is not an issue.

I need the best deep V-neck for sweating underarms. Plus, coverage in the front and back to absorb the sweat and not come through the clothing while I’m dancing.

Stylish shirts with two buttons undone are my favorite combo.

I need long neck plus a wide tailored around neck not to show.

I have deep V necks but you can see them on my neck near the perimeter of the collar.

What do you recommend? Bamboo or bamboo mix or what?

I would need to buy at least 10. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Thank you

Mark

Managing Back & Chest Sweat

Heya Mark,

Good to hear from you buddy and thanks for your question!

Looks like you have two issues you’re trying to address:

  1. Find a deep v-neck undershirt for back & chest sweating, so you stop sweating through your shirts
  2. Prevent getting yellow/brown stains in your underarm area
How to prevent sweat marks

Undershirts For Back & Chest Sweat: All-Over Protection

Sutran & NanoDri

Currently, Sutran and NanoDri are the only brands that offer a men’s deep v-neck undershirt with all-over sweat-blocking protection. They are both a little thick, so they may make you slightly warmer, and feel more saturated when wet. But, they will certainly block more sweat than typical cotton undershirts.

Neat Apparel

Neat Apparel has all-over sweat-hiding undershirts. However, they don’t yet offer a deep v-neck men’s undershirt yet. Though, they do have a women’s deep v-neck undershirt.

How Neat Sweat Hiding Technology Works

Kleinert’s

Kleinert’s offers an undershirt with semi-all-over protection, but I’ve heard mixed reviews about how well the fabric repels sweat in the body areas that do not have the extra padding.

Their undershirts with pads in the underarm work pretty well in protecting sweat through in the underarm area from what I hear though.

Other Sweat-Blocking Undershirts

For a complete list of undershirts that prevent sweat marks & sweat through, visit my Sweat Management Solutions article.

Prevent Getting Yellow/Brown Underarm Stains

The best way to prevent getting those stains in your underarm area are:

A. Don’t use antiperspirant

This is probably not practical since you sweat a lot and are likely using it to help minimize sweat

B. Apply antiperspirant at night

Underarm stains are caused when the antiperspirant chemicals transfer to your shirt. This will occur more often if your antiperspirant is not fully dry before you put on your undershirt or shirt.

When you apply antiperspirant at night, it has the opportunity to dry completely overnight, while you sleep.

The instructions on many 7-day or hyperhidrosis antiperspirants suggest night application for this very reason. For list of these and other types of antiperspirants, visit my Sweat Management Solutions article.

C. Clean underarm stains

You can clean the underarm area of your shirts with products like Deo-Go. Or, you can make your own deodorant removing solution at home.

Best Fabric Blends That Absorb Sweat & Prevent Sweat-Through

There are several fabrics that absorb sweat better than cotton, and dry faster.

Here are some of them:

  • Rayon/Viscose (from bamboo, or other wood sources)
  • TENCEL
  • Nylon

Hope the above information helps!

Good luck and keep me posted on what you buy/try and what you think of it (:

Better Than Cotton?

Mark emailed me back and clarified what he was looking for.

I do not sweat too much under the arm pits.

What I am looking for is an undershirt to wear when I am dancing so the sweat does not soak through as fast as when I wear cotton undershirts.

What do you recommend for that?

I want a deeper v-neck with wider on shoulders and lower around neck not to show when I have two buttons undone?

Deep V-Neck Highly Absorbent Undershirts

Heya Mark,

Honestly, it’s hard to tell whether or not an undershirt with a different fabric will prevent sweat-through or hide sweat better than one with 100% cotton.

There are many factors involved, such as yarn content & construction, fabric weight, fabric blend, fit, etc.

Factors that Affect Sweat Absorption

Based on technical specs, MicroModal is said to be 4x more absorbent than cotton, so you could try that.

Rayon from bamboo (or any other rayon or viscose) has wicking and absorbing characteristics. Therefore, that could be an option to consider to help you stop sweating through your shirt.

TENCEL is said to have a better moisture transport mechanism compared to cotton, MicroModal, and rayon. So, a TENCEL undershirt could perform better for you as well.

Whether or not they prevent sweat-through, in your specific situation, can only be determined if you buy a few different types and try them.

I would stay away from undershirts with large amounts (70%+) of polyester because those are wicking fabrics, and you’ll likely sweat through more than with anything above.

Deep V-Neck Undershirts That May Reduce The Amount You Sweat Through To Your Shirts

As for deep v-neck undershirts, most of the brands that have products with the above fabrics have a deep v-neck option, such as:

  1. MicroModal – Tommy John, RibbedTee, UnderFit, Calvin Klein, Collected Threads, Sloane men, etc.
  2. TENCEL – RibbedTee
  3. Nylon – RibbedTee, Atmoswear
  4. Viscose/Rayon from bamboo – Mr. Davis, Thompson Tee (has underarm pads)

My recommendation would be to pick one from each of the above lists, and see how they work out for you.

Question: How To Prevent Chest Sweat Marks?

Here are two questions related to chest & boob sweating — both of which can be addressed the same way.

Hi Tug,

I’ve read a lot about a variety of recommended undershirts, but they all seem to target underarm sweating.

I have hyperhidrosis and am lucky enough to have the government (in Australia) subsidize Botox treatments for my underarms, which means my underarms don’t really produce any sweat.

Botox treatments have significantly impacted my quality of life in this regard.

But what Botox can’t address is the centre line of my chest down to my belly button that produces the most sweat, and similarly on my lower back.

For this reason, I’ve been wearing the Uniqlo AIRism singlets under my t-shirts, polo shirts and dress shirts.

Wearing a singlet means less layers to hold in heat, and means I can wear a t-shirt without significant bulk underneath.

But the singlets are very thin and when they absorb sweat, it immediately comes through to my shirt or t-shirt or polo.

I really want to buy into the Ejis shirts, but I can see the waterproof section is only under the arms.

Do you know of any undergarments that have a waterproof layer around the chest midsection instead of, or in addition to, under the arms?

Thanks!

Ryan

How To Manage (or Conceal) Boob Sweat?

Hi Tug,

What do you think is the best undershirt for hot weather and to conceal male boob sweat.

Any thoughts on antiperspirant under breasts??

Top 3 Ways To Manage Chest Sweat

Heya Ryan,

Good to hear from you buddy and thanks for your question!

Here are some suggestions.

1. Sweat Blocking Undershirts

As far as I know, there is no undershirt that has an extra layer of fabric or sweat-through protection on only the chest or front panel of the undershirt.

Neat Apparel has sweat-hiding undershirts and t-shirts, so you may want to check those out here.

Sutran and NanoDri have two-layers of fabric everywhere, so I think those will be overkill.

Alternatively, I’d suggest trying the following 2 options.

2. Hyperhidrosis Antiperspirant

Try a 7-day antiperspirant wipe like Kleinerts, SweatBlock, or check into a product like Duradry.

Check out my sweat management solutions article for information about those hyperhidrosis antiperspirants, and some others.

3. Undershirt Alteration – Adding Extra Sweat Protection

The Uniqlo AIRism undershirts are pretty cheap. So, you may want to consider cutting a strip of fabric from one of the undershirts, and have it sewn down the front center of another Uniqlo AIRism undershirt on the inside.

By adding an extra layer of AIRism fabric to the center chest area of the AIRism undershirt you’re currently wearing, that will provide a double layer of protection.

If adding the single layer of fabric to your undershirt doesn’t provide enough chest sweat-through protection, you could try:

  1. Cut a 4″ strip of AIRism fabric and fold it in half, or cut two 2″ strips, and double them up
  2. Cut the fabric strips from a more moisture-absorbing fabric, that also dries fast. Examples: Viscose / rayon (i.e. bamboo from viscose), Modal, MicroModal, TENCEL, or even Nylon

If you can’t sew, or know someone that does, you should be able to find a seamstress/sewer in your area easy enough who’ll likely do the above undershirt alteration for very little cost.

Hope the above information helps!

Let me know what you wind up trying and how it works for you, ok?

Other Ways to Manage Back Sweat or Chest Sweat

For those with compensatory sweating, here are some other ideas to consider.

Botox / Dysport

Botox and Dysport are treatments used in the underarm area to help reduce/eliminate sweat.

These same procedures may be able help someone with compensatory sweating. Please consult your physician.

Vaser Lipo

This is a relatively newer treatment used to treat people with underarm hyperhidrosis.

It would be interesting to find out whether or not Vaser Lipo could help reduce compensatory sweating.

What About Fast-Drying High-Performance Undershirts To Prevent Sweat-Through?

I have received some messages from readers that claim that using high performance base layers that dry incredibly fast is a suitable alternative to wearing undershirts that absorb.

Here’s one example:

A few years ago I decided to try Silverback’s X-Static Crew Neck shirts. I sweat a lot.

I’ll keep a long story short, they might “work” but the way in which they work is by double-layering in sweaty areas (as you know).

What this means, in the long run, is that the shirts get hot, heavy, clammy. They ultimately make one sweat more over a long day in a hot climate.

You may want to investigate this solution that I found working much better.

As an avid cyclist, I started to explore higher-end base layers. I found that some of the better ones were excellent replacements for undershirts.

The best of them allow you to sweat, but do two things.

The first is they wick the sweat away quickly (resulting in cooler, more quickly drying undershirts – especially the non-cotton formulations).

Secondly, the sweat spreads out so quickly that it takes a really serious athletic effort to get any kind of sweat spotting.

The best I’ve found so far are the DeFeet lines, especially the UnD Lite (though I’ve had similarly positive experiences wearing low-end triathlon tanks from Sugoi and Primal as base layers).

Also, at $40 they’re less than the $50 silverbacks at a dramatically improved performance.

I was looking for a place to leave disparaging (but long-term) Silverback reviews (I have 6 of them!) and Positive UnD Lite reviews.

Perhaps it’s something that you want to explore (the two dramatically different sweat management philosophies.)

Anyway, thanks for the great site and looking out for the lowly undershirt!

Moisture Wicking Undershirts

When I workout, I wear high performing compression-fit base layers.

After an hour on the elliptical, there is pretty much always sweat on my outer shirt — sometime a lot of it.

Mind you, this is just from me standing up and the outer t-shirt just draping over my compression base layer.

In a typical day, you move around a lot, lean back on chairs/seats, etc.

So if you sweat a lot (like I did when working out), I still find it a little unlikely that a high-performing base layer will be really effective in preventing sweat through.

Though I’d love to hear from other heavy sweaters to find out if they’ve ever found high performance base layer t-shirts more effective in preventing sweat through than say layering or wearing an undershirt that absorbs more.

  1. Mate the nano dri is the way to go… Ive got the same problem with sweat from back and chest and Ive tied a few shirts. The nano dri is my go to if i want the most confidence. They are quite thick though so do add some bulk to your appearance. Its a trade off…

    Reply
    • heya james, yeah wearing a double layer undershirt like nanodri or sutran is definitely an option.

      but, this particular person did not need extra sweat protection on the back or underarm.

      so i opted to recommend something a little bit more focused & localized on the area here he was sweating the most (the chest) (:

      Reply
  2. What about wearing a wife beater to combat back or chest sweat? I have a variety of t shirts and shirts that are not black that I would like to wear without them sweating through, with the shirts I can always wear a deep v but the t shirts are very difficult

    Reply
    • heya jazz — yeah, i definitely recommend wearing ribbed tank tops (a-shirts) as another alternative for preventing back and chest sweat-through.

      sometimes in the summer, i either use a 7-day antiperspirant or use an iontophoresis machine to suppress underarm sweating, and wear a ribbed tank top to protect my outside shirts from back and/or chest sweat.

      so, if someone doesn’t have an issue with underarm sweating, or they have a good way to prevent underarm sweating, a ribbed tank top can be a great alternative.

      thanks for popping by and sharing your thoughts!

  3. What do you think of those who use medication to stop sweating? Such as taking Avert and such. A lot of hyperhidrosis specialists seem to be recommending it now.

    Reply
    • i think if the medication reduces sweating, and doesn’t cause a lot of harsh side effects, then it’s a least worth trying.

      i have read about folks with hyperhidrosis who have used advert (robinul) and said that it worked for them, but most folks have experienced some type of side-effects like dry mouth.

      the folks over at sweathelp.org also mention the following medications: glycopyrrolate, oxybutynin, benztropine, propantheline, and others.

      Reply
  4. I disagree, he should try a 100% polyester fabric. He might sweat through it faster, but it will dry very quickly. Once a 100% cotton absorbs sweat, it remains wet all night…unless he stops dancing for a couple hours.

    Reply
    • well, we’ll agree to disagree (:

      if he sweats through to his outer shirt, a polyester undershirt may dry faster, but his outer shirt will still have sweat marks and may take a long while to dry.

      he’s trying to prevent getting visible sweat marks on his outer shirt, so i was providing some recommendations on how to prevent that (:

  5. Hey Tug,
    I had ETS surgery and suffer from pretty bad compensatory sweating, most notably on my entire back and chest/stomach areas. I am looking for an undershirt that will serve as a complete block/barrier, so that sweat does not reach my outer shirt, which happens quite often for me this time of year, living in the south.

    I currently use V-Dri undershirts, which I like, but the sweat still penetrates through to my outer shirt.

    I’ve read about Sutran from your website, and was wondering if this is the only option that might be able to offer this level of protection. I noticed they charge about $50/shirt, so I was hoping to try to find something a bit more affordable. Is it the best option, and worth the price?

    How does FeelU or Airism perform? What do you recommend?

    Reply
    • heya brian,

      thanks for stopping by and sharing news of your compensatory sweating situation.

      yeah, vdri is a pretty decent lightweight wicking undershirt, but i’ve never been a believer that moisture wicking undershirts are good for people who sweat more. if they work well, they’ll transfer more moisture to the outside of the undershirt where it’ll come in contact more quickly with the outer shirt. the result would be sweat marks on the outer shirt, and most people who sweat more are trying to prevent sweat marks.

      i don’t think feelu or airism would work for you.

      feelu is micromodal undershirt with double underarm protection, but i doubt that the micromodal fabric will perform that much better than any other undershirt.

      airism has a mesh and non-mesh version, but they’ll likely be very similar to vdri from a wicking performance pov.

      frankly, the only undershirts that provide all-over sweat protection include:
      1. sutran – go with the 2.0 version since they are thinner. by all accounts, this is the one product i’ve heard that definitely works for all over torso/back/underarm protection.

      2. kleinerts – they have a “technology” (coating/applique) called fabrapel, which is designed to repel liquid. i have heard different reports from different people about how effective the fabric actually is for them, but individual results may vary. of course they have some with underarm pads and some without and i’ve read that the underarm protection is pretty good. they have a lightweight one (link) and medium-weight one (link).

      if you’re inclined, and you’re not too budget conscious – i’d say maybe try kleinerts first and see if they work for you. if they don’t, go with sutran.

      let me know what you wind up doing, ok?

      Reply
      • Thanks Tug! I really appreciate the advice!

        I bought a Kleinarts shirt in the past, but really wasn’t impressed w/it. It was a bit bulky, and didn’t really stop the sweat-through.

        I did see that they also make a v-neck compression shirt that keeps moisture in, so I may try one of those.

        So far, I’ve had the most success w/the V-Dri because it seems to be thick enough to stop some of the problem, even though it is moisture-wicking, but I’m going to try out the Sutran, and see how it works out.

  6. Hey Tug!

    I noticed you’ve written about wicking undershirts causing sweat marks on outer clothing. That hasn’t happened at all with the Duluth undershirts. I suppose the gap between the undershirt and dress shirt (which is just a simple H&M cotton dress shirt) allows for moisture to evaporate? I

    I did come across the Tommy John Second Skin undershirts that look promising (although EXPENSIVE!). Might order one to try and out and see what happens!

    Reply
    • heya rishi (:

      yeah, any amount of airflow between the undershirt and outer shirt will help the evaporation and drying process. if the duluth undershirts do a really good job in spreading out the sweat over a very large surface of the fabric (preventing concentrated wet “hot spots”), then the drying will happen even faster.

      in fact, if they do their job really well, then much of the moisture/sweat may not even reach the outside surface of the undershirt where it would have the chance to come in contact with your outer shirt.

      while the tommy john second skin undershirts are really super comfortable undershirts (albeit a bit pricey), they are made with micromodal which is an absorbing fabric. the makers of micromodal (lenzing) say that it has about 4x the absorbancy of cotton. so, if you’re looking for an undershirt that will not hold a lot of moisture and dry super fast, you may not want an undershirt that absorbs more than cotton.

      mind you, i think you’ll love the feel and fit of the tommy john second skin undershirts, but in your situation where you’re getting hot/sweaty and want to feel dry, you may not experience that with any high-absorbing undershirt made from cotton, micromodal, or any other non-wicking fabric.

      i’d suggest either stick with full wicking, or wicking/absorbing fabrics like bamboo or cotton/poly, cotton/nylon, etc.

      funny thing, i just got my shipment of airism undershirts from uniqlo, and i’m gonna wear them to the gym in just a little bit. they are fully wicking, and super lightweight, so you may want to take a look at those too (:

      • Hey Tug! Thanks so much for your continuing correspondence!! I bought a few CK micromodal and microfiber underwear that I’ve been trying out and they’ve been working very well in moisture management in and out of the gym! I’ve seen conflicting info out there about micromodal’s moisture wicking properties but god damn are they soft and I haven’t felt uncomfortable working out in them!! I suppose winter’s the worst time to be auditioning moisture wicking clothing. Let me know how the Airisms work out!! I’d love to give them a try, they look great for the price!

  7. Hey Tug! Thanks first of all for having a whole website dedicated to this often overlooked but important topic!!!

    I’m a wedding DJ/Event planner so this article relates to me in a few ways! Recently I’ve been scouring the earth to overhaul my old cotton underwear and undershirt collection mainly so I can work comfortably in hot conditions lugging around equipment and playing music.

    For me the Duluth Trading Company Buck Naked line has been awesome! Their boxer briefs have been amazing and I’ve also got a couple of their tank top undershirts. My only complaint about the undershirts are that they’re too shallow for my liking and with my top 2 buttons undone they always show! Other than that their length, moisture wicking, and comfort are amazing and I instantly felt a difference!! I think their regular crew or v neck undershirts would be great since they’re made from the same stuff.

    Slightly off topic question! Do you know of any company that makes a nice wicking tank top undershirt like the buck naked but has a deeper neck? I’m so tempted to just take some scissors to my Duluths but afraid of what might happen!! I’ve looked into the Calvin klein micro modal stuff and many others but they don’t seem to have a tank top versions!! Help!

    Reply
    • good to hear from you rishi and glad to be of service (:

      question for you — is there a reason that you’re looking for a tank top undershirt vs. a full undershirt? is it because you feel you stay cooler wearing a tank top than wearing a full undershirt?

      also, are you focused on 100% synthetic (wicking) and trying to avoid anything with cotton in it? just trying to better understand your situation and why your leaning towards synthetics vs cottons or even cotton blends.

      post your response here on the website and let’s see if i can help you out (:

      Reply
      • Hey Tug!! I do feel cooler in a tank top (no pun intended :P). I also don’t have a huge problem with underarm sweat so I’ve never been compelled to wear a full undershirt because of that either.

        I’m not totally opposed to a blend of sorts. I guess I’m leaning towards that since the Duluth Buck Naked tank tops are fully synthetic and wick amazingly and I have a huge problem with back sweat (more than anywhere else!) ! I started wearing the Adidas Climacool T shirts recently which are 85% poly 15% cotton and they’ve been great! If there’s a blended or synthetic tank top that has a nice deep neck and wicks well I’d love to know!

        Thanks!!

      • heya rishi!

        i’ll definitely keep my eye out for a blend (absorbing/wicking) tank top that has a deeper neck line and will post here if i come across one.

        question, with the duluth buck naked tank tops, since they wick so well, do you get sweat marks on the back of your outer shirt?

        from my personal experience, especially when working out, the high wicking base layer shirt i wear (mostly compression) wick so well, my outer gym shirt gets pretty wet.

        would love to hear about your experience with back sweating.

  8. Im really hoping to find a suitable under shirt option that cant help me manage my chest and back sweating also…

    I use botox for my underarms which is great and I highly recommend to anyone that just sweats there!

    I have been using the x-static shirts from Silverback for a few years and they for the most part get me by except when we have weather like the last few weeks here in Australia (35 deg Cel and 70-80% humidity) On those types of days I just have to take a couple of undershirts…

    I have tried compression style base layers and they definitely don’t work for me I get sweat through really quick and feel like they make me sweat more.

    Im very interested to try Sutran but the price has been a massive put off at this stage particularly the shipping, for me to get 4 shirts costs $210 plus $110 shipping… If I could guarantee they work and suited me then it would be worth every cent and I would buy bulk to try and save but it could be a costly exercise just to try and get the right size!

    I have to admit im pretty skeptical about most products and would only really recommend Silver back out of all ive tried. Im still interested to try Mack Weldon silver shirts, Vdri and Swick.. Does anyone have any experience with those?

    Lastly I can massively vouch for the Smart Weave shirts! Though I admit I have only road-tested mine twice both times it worked amazingly! I wore it to the races both times and this is Summer in Australia so pretty warm and both times not one sweat mark!

    Brilliant! cheers

    Reply
    • heya james! good to hear from you buddy and thanks so much for taking the time to comment here on my site!!

      some quick points:
      1. swick undershirts are not being manufactured anymore.

      2. mack weldon silver shirts are a combination of cotton, x-static, and lycra. they aren’t necessarily designed to prevent sweat-through, and x-static is more about odor & bacterial elimination than it is anything else.

      3. vdri is a 100% polyester celluar-mesh constructed fabric. it works really well in wicking and drying fast, but it’s not specifically designed to prevent sweat-through.

      it may perform slightly better than the compression base layers you’ve tried, but it’s hard to tell weather or not it would work as effectively as something like sutran.

      all-in-all, if you have an opportunity to try any sweat-through resistant undershirts for chest & back sweat protection, my recommendation would be to try out either sutran or klenierts (with fabrapel).

      dunno if you’ll experience the same nipple chafing as tim did with kleinerts, but if they are more affordable than sutran, they might be worth testing out first.

      if all else fails, try out sutran.

      from my personal experience shopping online, it should not cost $110 to ship 4 shirts to your country.

      so, maybe you can find a mail forwarding company in spain or uk that will give you a more local shipping address, but will forward it to you in australia for much less than $110. or maybe try amazon.

      do keep me posted on your search.

      let me know what you try out, what you love, and what doesn’t work for you.

  9. Dear Peter

    I have tried Sutran Undershirts and they will almost certainly work for this situation BUT they are extremely thick and bulky. But they will work for sure.

    Don’t order too many until you first know what the correct size will be for you as the sizing tends to be larger than normal. They really are bulky though.

    I have also tried the Smart Weave shirts (formally known as Freshmax) and they are extremely impressive. I was skeptical because I am an incredibly heavy underarm sweater but they worked completely.

    Body sweating tends to be lighter and more dispersed than underarm sweating and I have no doubt that if these worked for my underarms then they will work for anyone and definitely if in the body area. Really nice shirts too.

    Silverback has undershirts with an additional back panel but that still leaves your chest exposed so to speak.

    I tried t shirts with Fabrapel and my nipples were extremely sore by the days end which I can only assume was because of the Fabrapel.

    Sutran and Smartweave will be your best bet I believe as pointed out by Tug.

    Reply
    • heya tim! good to hear from you buddy (: happy holidays and almost happy new year.

      thanks for your input on the sutran and smartweave shirts. and very interesting observation about the kleinerts shirts with fabrapel.

      i have not had the chance to try them yet, so i don’t have any personal experience with them yet.

      in my original post, silverback was one of the brands i was inferring to as being “not readily available”.

      the website is there, but i have many many reports from readers who say they’ve either contacted them with no response, or have ordered from them and have no idea when their order will be showing up.

      i received this comment from a reader about silverback earlier this month:

      I live in Texas (it’s damn hot and humid here), and I am a sweaty guy.

      I have been using SilverBack Apparel for the last few years but their website and service has been going down fast.

      Now I can’t even buy their shirts (web site error and no response from the vendor).

      the last i exchanged emails with the founder of silverback was in late august 2013, when the owner indicated they were still up and operational.

      though, i just visited their website and tried to purchase something and got a notification that their ssl certificate expired last month.

      not sure what’s happening over there, but maybe jonathan from silverback will get back in touch with me sometime soon and let me know the scoop.

      i guess we’ll see (:

  10. Drysol is a prescription deodorant and it’s not like regular deodorant. that works wonders for underarm, hand and foot sweating.

    Apply it to your hands, feet, armpits or anywhere else you sweat at night before bed. You only need to apply it once a day – it’s not like regular deodorant.

    This stuff is Clinical Strength. Beware of irritation with Drysol.

    You may have to take a day or two off from this treatment if your skin gets too dry, sensitive or red with a rash.

  11. just an update to anyone finding undershirts with sweat management, i recently took the plunge and purchased undershirts from sutran.es . they cost me $178 euros for 5 pairs of v neck undershirts.

    good thing was it took 2 days to arrive from spain to where i am in south east asia. very quick! so far the undershirts seem to be good, they’re thicker than normal (approx 0.2cm thickness) and are made up of 2 layers, the inner layer is somewhat like swimming trunks material, stretchy spandex dri-fit sort, and the outer layer seems to be finely spun cotton.

    did a test whereby i soaked both my hands in water and pressed them against the inner layer of the tshirt, the outer layer doesn’t soak through. will field test today in my normal course through the day to see if it withstands perspiration and sweat.

    i’m pretty impressed by Sutran’s undershirts, i bought 5 v-neck white shirts for work use, i may purchase another 5 pack of black ones for casual use! i’m in no way affiliated to sutran, just someone who wants the best undershirt to manage sweat and perspiration.
