Odin Fightwear - Berserkur rashguard



Almost a year after I stumbled upon this new and fresh combat clothing company: http://odinfightwear.com and did a review on their Muninn shorts,  the owner, and all-around good guy Kari came out with their newest item, a rashguard which is to my understanding designed by means of croudsourcing!




After singel-handedly preventing the Mayan apocalypse from coming to date with his awesome Physicist superpowers, Kari made sure his  first version of a prefect rashie would not rise during the heat of combat, by placing a rubberized strip in the hem of the rashie! This is something ive been predicting and actually waiting for from several brands, and here it is!

Always wear rubber(ized details)



Not only does the design appeal to me, the gritty and grungy look is enchanced by using two different kinds of fabrics, and the silvery-grey one which has the sublimated print is much more textured than the very smooth blue panels on the shoulders!

I tried but this is the best pic of the difference in materials...


The cut is "loose" around the chest, and there is no seam in the armpit to prevent chafing. 
Rolling in the rashie is a treat. Even though I have the body-type of a spartan warrior:

 -Somehow my rashies and t-shirts always rise, showing my "abs" The rubberized strip prevents that notably, and works just as planned.

Pros

Love the design
Great material choices (even though the materials are not special in any extreme way, the texture makes the design pop!)
Great idea to crowd-source designing, and I hope that will be more usual in the future.

Cons

The rashie could have been a wee tad longer on the hem.
