2 min read


From Opedix> The  BLADE-Tec 2.0 shirt extended their patented Torque Reform Technology to the upper body and connected another key link in the kinetic chain. Over two years of development work and extensive proto-typing and testing have resulted in a the right balance of compression and tension to comfortably correct muscular imbalances- improving performance, enhancing posture and reducing pain. The unique scapular support and load distribution systems provide mechanical support and enhance sensory input to promote dynamic alignment and improve stability and range of motion- allowing you to do the things you love longer, better and with less pain and fatigue. Activate your upper kinetic chain and improve the way you move through life with the BLADE-Tec 2.0.

Functionality: 4/5 Very useful to help distribute the load via the scapular support system.

Weight: 4/5 Durable fabric, sturdy material, weighty but necessary as it gives proper positioning to the human frame.

Durability: 5/5 Good use of a sturdy material that seems to be long lasting.

Appearance: 5/5 Simple design. Fits well under a blouse or plate carrier.

Overall Score: 18/20
