Pull the MAAP Seamless Base layer Tee out if its packaging and the first thing you'll think is that you've ordered the wrong size – it just looks tiny. But you'll have no trouble squeezing into it. The seamless design expands easily, without ever losing its snug fit.

It looks  similar to Altura's Thermocool base layer albeit with short sleeves. However, the issues of fit with Altura's base layer don't make an appearance on the MAAP Seamless Base Layer Tee.
