We've had the chance to test several products from the Dainese 2017 line, and the Trailknit Pro Armor T-shirt was a particularly nice surprise.
It is constructed of Dryarn technical jersey material, designed to be worn in direct contact with your skin. The material allows for body temperature regulation, muscle compression, and of course protection. The shirt includes padding on the back and shoulders that can be removed before you wash it.
I recommend the Trailknit Pro Armor tee shirt to everyone who, like me, who does not like the bulge that armor often produces.
In short: the shirt is a great compromise between comfort, safety, and lightweight technical clothing that many of us need. Dainese really made something great here.

A first for the bike industry, the Trailknit Pro Armor Tee is a functional base layer with the ability to seamlessly integrate protective elements to match your unique needs. Providing the benefits of a traditional next-to-skin base layer, including temperature regulation and muscle compression, the Trailknit Pro Armor Tee eliminates the need for multiple worn layers by incorporating protection directly into the structure.
Constructed of high-performance Dryarn, it provides incredible breathability and insulation in a lightweight package.
The low-profile design and ability to integrate Pro Amor padding means all- day comfort and protection.
