    Anybody tried the Nike Essentials Crew Tee? Nike is going all out about how amazing it is, is it just a regular shirt? is it worth the 25 bucks, thanks.

    I got 6 of them and really like them - they're my shirts of choice for tennis and running. The cut is great and as it is a cotton/polyester blend it feels a bit more like a regular cotton shirt which I like, but doesn't get sticky and heavy when you're drenched.

    You took the words right out of my mouth. Quite possibly the best athlete's shirt ever made (direct quote from Nike) [​IMG]

    Let me present a dissenting view.

    I have some of these I bought on sale, and I'm not that impressed. I definitely wouldn't pay $25 for them. I find them only slightly better than a 100% cotton shirt. They're not as heavy as a 100% cotton shirt when drenched, but they certainly saturate quickly compared to my all-poly gear.

    I have a New Balance athletic shirt made of a cotton-poly "dri-release" brand fabric that wicks and dries much better. I'd say it is a superior product and I got it for $9 at Ross.

    They are equivalent to underarmor's grey shirts if you've ever tried one. Don't pay $25 for them unless there is a color you really want. Find a factory store near you and you'll find some. It is pretty much a regular t shirt but you are guaranteed the fact that they arn't too thick like some shirts out there so they allow your skin to breathe.
