This week I took delivery of the PerformLITE™ Seamless T-Shirt, which is part of BULK POWDERS new clothing range, which they’ve named BULKWEAR®. The introduction of this new clothing range sees BULK POWDERS make a real statement in the activewear clothing market, so what do I think of the company’s new performance top?

First Thoughts on the PerformLITE™ Seamless T-Shirt

It was obvious when I opened my BULK POWDERS delivery and took the PerformLITE™ t-shirt out of the box that this was a ‘premium’ product. The t-shirt comes in a bespoke BULKWEAR® zip bag, with a matt-like feel to it. The packaging felt high quality and really added to the feeling that this was not just another gym top, but something a bit special. BULKWEAR PerformLITE Seamless Top in Packaging

BULKWEAR® Free Returns

I was also pleasantly surprised to notice that BULK POWDERS had included a free delivery slip and a BULKWEAR® Returns Guide, allowing you to return the item at no extra cost via DPD pickup. I think this is a really nice touch, especially considering it is a new range and it’s inevitable that not everyone will not pick the right size first time around.

You can return your item within 30 days of receipt, providing it is in the original condition and packaging. Unfortunately, exchanges are still not an option. Hopefully this is something the company introduce in the future. However, overall it was really good to see the introduction of the returns guide, meaning if the top had not fitted, it would have been an easy, no-fuss process to return it.

Fit & Feel

Taking it out the packaging the top had a lightweight feel. The fabric felt high quality and the top had some nice features, such as the BULKWEAR® tag sewn to the neck. I ordered a Size Large in the Grey Marl colour. The top was a great fit and accentuates the muscle profile of the body. It is tight fitting around the arms, chest and shoulders, but is also made from a stretchy material, so does not feel at all restricting when working out and expands with the body.

This top is made from a breathable fabric, helping to keep you cool when exercising. If you’ve ever trained in the gym wearing a cotton t-shirt, you will certainly notice the difference when working out in this. You definitely sweat far less and stay much cooler. Added to this the top has a real lightweight feel and is in no way restricting when working out.

Available Sizes & Colours

The PerformLITE™ t-shirt is available in a number of colours including black marl, grey marl, green marl and navy marl, as well as white. The sizes available range from Small to Extra Large. The size guide suggests:

  • Small – 36-38 inch chest
  • Medium – 38-40 inch chest
  • Large – 40-42 inch chest
  • Extra Large – 42-44 inch chest

I have a 42 inch chest and stand 6 foot tall, and a Size Large was definitely perfect for me.

Do I Recommend The PerformLITE™ Seamless T-Shirt?

Yes! I think this gym top is a really great product. It looks like a premium product, and feels like it to. Overall I was really impressed with it. Being a premium product it does come with a more premium price, retailing at £27.99, but the good thing about BULK POWDERS is that they are always running great discount offers, so you should be able to get it for cheaper than that. I would certainly recommend the PerformLITE™ if you’re looking for a premium gym top.
