OVERALL WINNER: Devold/Tusna Sport Air
Motivation: »Once you put them on, you forget you are wearing them. Is there a bigger compliment for garments«, one tester raves about the women’s merino underwear Tusna Sport Air from the Norwegian brand Devold. The key to the outstanding performance is the mix of different merino fabrics. Devold combines merino-mesh and classical knitted underwear fabrics with a new 3D rib material that allows moisture evaporate quickly. This improves comfort because the air pockets in the 3D construction regulate the body heat better than conventional merino fabrics and shorten the drying time. Depending on whether the rips are facing towards the body (more insulation) or are on the outside (less insulation) you can adapt the underwear to the amount of warmth needed. Due to the high stretch of the garment and the perfect patterning, the fit is great and makes you look even better. An outstanding product for all kind of activities and for every temperature excluding warm summer days.
