Another Sugio Product that I have become very fond of is my Mack Zip T. Now if you search Mack Zip T on the Sugoi web site, you discover that this particular style is listed for Triathlon, Running, Mountain biking and Road Biking, and frankly I understand why.

This garment is cut loose enough for comfort, yet snug enough to avoid "baggy wind drag." It wicks nicely for skin comfort. It is understated enough to wear into the grocery store on errands, and it is comfortable.

Again when I first opened the garment and handled it, I was slightly put off by the harsh, almost abrasive feel of the Mack Zip T's outer fabric. I fully expected this garment to generate "nipple burn," a phenomenon which if you have experienced it, I need not explain. Yet, over the course of several months, I found myself donning this T for casual and training rides on a regular basis. Often I actually sought it out for its comfort. Still, in the back of my mind I kept wondering why I had not found the T uncomfortable since i still felt that the outer surface was abrasive.

It was only in preparation for penning this review that I finally discovered the reason, Technical fabric! The label lists the garment as 100% polyester and this is what I was reacting to tactilly. But upon closer inspection, I found that the inner surface of the garment had a completely different feel. Smooth and flexible, the inside is almost "nylonesque" or "silklike." After some effort, I was finally able to separate two layers of fabric (I kept thinking... this is a single layer, no, two, no one, etc.) which are woven completely differently, hence the very different feel. The seams are well handled in a very flat enclosed stitching.

The two large zippered back pockets are very nicely finished and quite easily overlooked as they blend invisibly into the T's seams. Only the zipper pulls give their presence away. If there is any single outstanding aspect to the Sugoi line, I would point to the finish and attention to detail, that and comfort!

In doing the review, I inspected their care label closely, something I rarely do, of course. Made in Canada, I did enjoy their single BOLD type precautionary statement, "AVOID CONTACT WITH ABRASIVE SURFACES!" Now being a roadie, I immediately laughed and translated this to an inside joke to eschew road rash! A Terrific suggestion from a great garment!
