Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0

The Stink-Proof Workout Shirt

If you have a hockey player in your family then you understand the unique and never-ending stink that permeates from every piece of equipment, it’s not pretty.

The founders of Lululemon were hockey players and though their initial intention wasn’t to make stink-proof clothes, it’s a short line to draw from the hockey mentality to their innovative line of stink inhibiting shirts like the men’s Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0

Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0

What’s the magic behind a stink-free workout shirt? No, it’s not just wearing it to get coffee!

Lululemon’s website says Silverescent™ technology, powered by X-STATIC®, inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the fabric.

For those of you who are good with that, you may stop reading, and continue to scroll on Instagram.

For the rest of you, here’s what that means.

The X-STATIC® technology embedded in Silverescent fabric bonds 99.9% pure silver to the surface of every fiber — which means that there’s stink-conquering technology woven into the very fabric of the Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0.  Here’s the crazy part, it will never wash out or stop working.

No, the scientists at Lululemon didn’t spend years in their secret lab in area 51 creating X-Static, Silverscent technology, but they did take a page from the NASA and U.S Military page book to create a stylish, well-fitting shirt that will make heads turn because you look good and not because you smell bad.

Using silver for its antimicrobial properties in everything from drinking vessels to military field dressings has been done for more than 2,000 years.  Now, this technology is used to deliver the benefits of silver to textiles.  Proven by United States special forces, NASA, and Olympic athletes X-STATIC® has a rich heritage of delivering superior performance, because who wants a stinky astronaut?

NOTE: This is important. You must still wash your shirt.  It’s technology, not wizardry.

They come in more than a dozen colors, and the seamless construction of the Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0 helps to prevent chafing while working out.

Silverescent technology isn’t just unique to the Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0. It is in many of the Lululemon shirts for men and women as well,  from the Swiftly Tech Long Sleeve Shirt 2.0 to the Swiftly Breathe Relaxed-Fit Muscle Tank Top. Because women stink too.

Will Lululemon ever get back to their hockey roots and make a stink-free hockey jersey, we can only hope.  But until then their high-tech, well build, good-looking line of athletic wear will have to do.

The Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt 2.0 costs $78 and prices vary for women’s starting at $34 and going up from there.
