Salomon's Cosmic SS tee looks the part but can it perform out on the trail? We test it to find out.

Overall Score
Wicks bucket loads of sweat and still smells sweet afterwards

The Cosmic SS tee is a synthetic tee designed for everyday adventures.

The tee is medium weight with quite a dense knit, this results in impressive wind resistance which works well for hiking in the changeable UK climate, protecting your core from sudden chills.

The polyester and elastene blend feels great next to the skin, much more so than most synthetic tees which can have a scratchy feel to them.

The Active Fit is slim fitting but not figure hugging, elastene gives all-over stretch so there's no need for stretch panels which would otherwise ruin the clean lines and simple design which this tee pulls off with authority.

Flatlock seams save your shoulders from irritation that can often be caused by heavy packs when hiking and a UPF 50 rating provides protection against UVA and UVB.

Turn the intensity up a notch and the Cosmic SS tee is very breathable, we trained hard in it for 7 hours straight and, although it got drenched in sweat many times it dried quickly each time ready for another drenching. As a bonus it also didn't smell too bad afterwards thanks to a Polygiene treatment.

Overall this is a superb tee for multi-day backpacking adventures but we also use it for hard cross-training sessions and trail running, the Cosmic SS tee takes pretty much anything you can throw at it.
