Tank is the latest addition to the brand’s Tec ComfortGear collection. © HanesHanes believes that everyone who works and plays hard deserves support. The brand has launched the Active Comfort Tank as part its Tec ComfortGear Collection. The high-performance sleeveless shirt incorporates lightweight, breathable yarns and an innovative knitting technique that combine to provide bi-directional comfort compression and all-over stretch to fight fatigue.

Mesh in targeted areas adds ventilation, a longer back ensures the tank stays securely tucked in, and an ultraviolet protection factor rating of 50+ adds sun protection.

“Whether you drive, dig or drill for a living or paddle, pedal or pitch for fun, our Active Comfort Tank compression shirt can help prevent fatigue and improve performance,” said W. Howard Upchurch, HanesBrands’ Group President of Innerwear for the Americas. “And it will keep you cool, comfortable and confident all day.”

All-day comfort and ease of wear is said to be achieved through use of the Tec ComfortGear Collection’s exclusive Triple Tec fabric that includes:

  • X-Temp technology that adapts to body temperature and wicks moisture for comfort;
  • FreshIQ advanced odour protection technology that inhibits the growth of odour-causing bacteria; and,
  • Slide-on technology that makes compression garments easy to put on and take off.

According to a Nashville bicycle patrol officer who tested the tank, the top is “perfect for hot, humid temperatures and the use of body armour.”

“I teach classes on bike patrol and always like to give suggestions on how to feel more comfortable when riding,” he said. “This tank will be shared with the class.”
