Outdoor Research womens cycling active fresco tank top dri-release recycled polyester organic cotton freshguard odor control reduce neutralization shelf bra biking jersey hiking Outdoor Research just released images of their new eco-friendly Spring/Summer women’s wear, including two tops and three hats.

The Fresco Tank (left) is made of lightweight Dri-Release® E.C.O. fabric to help keep you dry during activity.  It’s an 83/15% blend of recycled polyester and organic cotton with 2% Spandex to keep it shapely.  It uses FreshGuard® to keep the funk at bay (Hmmm…I thought women always smelled like roses…insert smiley face here.), which must be top-secret stuff because all the manufacturer’s website says is it “tackles the issue of odor control head on.”  How?  How long does it last?  Does it wash out?  Who knows…

Getting back on course, though, the tank is pretty sweet looking, has a built in shelf bra (A/B cups and adjustable straps and will retail for $50.
