The Karin Shirt from FITS!


This is a sponsored post.  The companies that sponsor the product reviews compensate me to write them.  Regardless, the opinions and uses that I find for the products are entirely my own, and I only suggest and recommend products that I personally use and believe my readers could benefit from.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.



I am lucky enough to be the guinea pig for a new shirt, called the Karin, made by FITS (Fun in the Saddle!).   I was immediately intrigued about this Karin shirt, as the FITS website says it can be worn in summer and then easily become a staple for winter.   So, I tested one out.  I can sum this shirt up in one sentence:


“It makes your arms look buff.”


This is a direct quote from my husband, and therefore the gospel truth about this shirt.  I could end this product review right here and now, but you should know a few other things about it.


I wore it to the barn on one of those days that is 42 degrees when you get there and 92 when you leave.  I put it on in the morning under two jackets (I hate to be cold), and when I got to the barn I started my day.  By the time I left a few hours later, the weather was rapidly approaching the 90’s. 


I never got cold, and I never overheated, even in long sleeves.  I wasn’t even hot, no need to roll up my sleeves, no need to complain loudly, or beg someone to change shirts with me as I watched the temp climb above 85.  I’m convinced that the high tech fabric came from space.  I did sweat a bit (I was grooming and riding), but any sweat dried wickedly fast.  This made for a post barn grocery store trip totally doable and removed *most* weird looks.  While this shirt is awesome, it does nothing for helmet head and the weird hairstyles that follow.


Other bonuses for the Karin shirt by FITS-

-Fun colors (click here to see the optional colors!)

-Sleek fabric

-Contoured fit

-Long sleeves

-Zippered!!  (Love this, because you can zip up your top totally while you are clipping, no stray hairs getting stuck where they should not be!)

-UVA and UVB blocking.  This is a big one for me, I want to clean saddles, not look like one.

-Machine washable. This is a must.  Who has time for anything else?

-This shirt is long enough to stay tucked in as you pick feet, but not so long that you need to tuck it into your socks.
