The Mountain Hardwear Breeze AC Tank is a runner’s dream for summer and hot temperatures. The Breeze AC Tank is appropriately named, as it weighs a mere 4.8 oz and its’ loose fit allows airflow in all directions. The Breeze AC Tank features “all-over perforation”, which means that Mountain Hardwear has utilized breathable mesh fabric that has small air holes scattered throughout the tank in subtle zig-zag pattern. The top is a light layer that breathes and dries quickly, a perfect combination for a day on the trails.
The Mountain Hardwear Breeze AC Tank is available in size XS to XL. The Breeze AC Tank features a loose design, with the following measurements taken from a size medium: center back length of 27 inches, hem to hem measurement along the bottom of the top at 19.5 inches, and 17.5 inches when measured from each under arm across the back. I typically wear a size medium in Mountain Hardwear and found this top to be generously sized. Mountain Hardwear included elastic along the rear hem to keep the top from flapping or billowing in the wind, without this feature the top would likely feel too loose and less flattering (in my opinion). The top features a racer-back design with two additional strap cut-outs that add a bit of style. I was able to wear this top comfortably with a running back for a few hours; anything more than 2 hours and I would recommend a traditional t-shirt to avoid possible chaffing and rubbing with pack straps.
The Mountain Hardwear Breeze AC Tank is a nice light-weight offering for this spring/summer season. The top is available in Graphite, Black, Atmosphere, Crab Legs, and Sticky Note (my favorite for visibility and the sun!). For more information, please visit MountainHardwear.com
