Marika Tek Super Functional Dry-Wik Activewear Basics {Marika Tek Crew Neck Tee Review}

Marika logo
While I would love to claim that I live a healthy, balanced, active life, I have to settle for saying that I do the best that I can. Between kids, school, work, appointments, chores, life... I'm sure that I'm not the only one that could use a little boost to inspire me to make time to exercise or hit the gym.

Fortunately, when we come across companies that offer fashionable, functional, feminine, multi-sport performance active wear, it can make just about anyone want to focus on fitness. For me, that has most recently been the Marika Tek line from Marika.

Marika Tek

Whether it's for the gym, yoga, Pilates or jogging, indoors or outdoors, Marika Tek takes "basics" and pushes them to a new level of performance. In a line that can be mixed and matched with itself and just about any existing item in every woman's workout wardrobe, Marika Tek offers an exclusive breathable, super soft, high tech wicking fabric and finish (Dry-Wik) for the ultimate in cool dry comfort.

"Our new Marika Tek line," says Marika's Executive VP/General Manager, Carrie Henley, "gives active women what they've been telling us they want: the most advanced, effective moisture-wicking performance, in stylish dedicated athletic wear that features tried and tested shapes built for the ultimate in fit, form and function."

After hearing about the fashion as well as the technology of this new line, I was ready to see the Venus Crew Neck Dry Wik Tee for myself.

Marika Tek Venus Crew Tee

Available in Fandango Pink (with a neon yellow contrasting stitched trim) and Ultra Violet (with a lime green trim), the Venus Crew Neck Tee had me impressed with its fun, soft, versatile appearance and feel right out of the package. This is an appealing tee for women of all ages who are looking for performance, comfort and style!

As soon as I had this shirt on, I was struck by the lightweight, comfortable feel of the rayon/poly blend fabric. Not only is this material easy to care for and washable, but the light fit felt perfect for working out as well as just for keeping cool in hot weather.

I did find this shirt to be slightly on the small side, so I would order one size up if I were making a future purchase. However, the 25" length provides coverage at my waist (no feeling as though it is going to ride up if I bend down) and the slightly curved side seams give it a flattering, not-just-a-shlumpy-t-shirt look.

Combine that with the Dry-Wik technology that wicks away moisture, and you're left with a comfortable, enjoyable piece of apparel for working out for just for every day. No matter if I'm running on the track or just running errands, this Marika Tek tee has proven to be a sporty, stylish way to combine fashion and function!

These look like nice shirts and at a good price. My wife and I are running a half marathon together so this would be a nice gift for her. Thanks for the review!
