If chosen to test this item I need a size small and prefer the "petal lite" color.
I grew up horseback riding, camping, and hiking, but I just started backpacking about two
years ago. All of my trips have been one or two night stays. My trips normally range from
coastal trails in the redwoods to mountainous terrain in the Sierra Nevadas. I tend to hike
where I encounter rain and dampness. This year I am looking forward to making some
longer trips in northern California and gaining more experience. I am not a lightweight
backpacker yet, but would like to reduce my current pack weight significantly.
Central and Northern California Coasts:
I will take at least two backpacking trips of two or three days in duration as well as many
day hikes in multiple state parks and national forests ranging in elevations from 0 to 6000
feet (1800 meters). The temperatures will be between 40 and 70 F (4 to 21 C). I may also
go on a couple coastal kayaking day trips.
I will go on a short, one or two night backpacking trip in Tahoe National Forest at
elevations between 7000 to 9000 feet (2100 to 2700 meters). Temperatures are typically
between 30 and 60 F (-1 to 16 C).
I might also wear the bra during jogging, biking, and generally working out if it is
My test of the Moving Comfort Daylite Bra would involve a thorough evaluation of moisture
wicking ability and comfortable functionality. I will typically wear the bra under synthetic
fabric hiking tank tops, shirts, and fleeces. Since it is a low impact bra, I will mostly use it
for hiking and backpacking, but not necessarily for trail running or snowboarding unless it
proves to be more supportive than expected. I will evaluate if it dries fast, and wicks
moisture during and after activities. Does it dry fast enough to prevent any chafing? Does
it feel excessively wet if I am sweating or does it move the moisture away from my body
quickly? Does it still dry fast even if my shirt or jacket is not as breathable as the bra? Does
the whole bra wick moisture equally or are the cups less breathable than the back and side
I will also pay close attention to the fit of the Daylite Bra. Does it feel supportive during
low impact (and some higher impact) activities? Is it binding? Does it chafe or shift
anywhere? Do the hooks and straps stay in place? Are the straps and hooks in the back
comfortable and adjustable? Is the bra durable (I have definitely had bra buckles and
hooks break before)? Does the bra flex easily with my body without sacrificing coverage or
supportiveness? Moving Comfort claims that the bra has molded cups for slight shaping.
Does this molding look natural or is it an odd shape (smooshed boobs or pointy boobs)?
Some sports bras use thick, wide straps in the back that are actually restrictive and
irritating during vigorous arm movement. Do the angled straps avoid this and fit
comfortably over my shoulder blades while staying secure at the same time? Since I am a
small chested woman, does the bra still provide support without unnecessarily flattening
and does it leave too much room, causing gaping? Is the bra visible under many workout
tank tops or are the straps angled in far enough to be hidden most of the time?
Thank you for considering my application.
