Kilpi ASSASIN-M stretch sweatshirt test
I chose the Kilpi ASSASIN-M sweatshirt at first sight because of the cut and its colors. Although the model is referred to as dark blue, it is actually a combination of brindle dark blue with cyan.
For me personally, the biggest benefit of the sweatshirt is hidden in its collar, which is connected to the hood. However, if I do not put on the hood and the sweatshirt will be turned up, it actually becomes a turtleneck. I like a high collar and warmth around my neck, not only because I actually make my living singing. And if I decide to put on the hood, its collar can be used perfectly as a cover for the mouth and nose, which is quite useful in this period.
As far as colors are concerned, I do not surround myself with blue very much in my life, and I had never done it, with the only exception of blue jeans, before I wore this very sophisticated sweatshirt. Although the combinations of blue color belong to one of the most common variants associated with men's clothing, I fell in love with this product at first glance yet in the catalog. I was even more excited about its appearance during the first deployment. Actually now I'm always being careful not to be taken in every single photo in the events or trips wearing this sweatshirt. Another great benefit that I actually appreciate above all else is the length of the sleeves. Being 190 cm high and having a thinner figure, it often happens to me that the long sleeve is not really long enough. However, this is not a problem with the XL size, and thanks to the thumb hole and flexible material, I can use the sleeves in both ways.
Like any proper zip-up sweatshirt, it has not only outer but also inner pockets on both sides. I'm used to having mesh pockets as a kind of shelter and I probably wouldn't choose a sweatshirt without them. I automatically throw a mobile phone into the pockets and it even happened to me that I threw the phone into a pocket that wasn't there. These are just details, but sometimes they are the ones that make the little joy one does not even realize.
An equally important detail is the fabric cover over the upper end of the zipper. As I do not have to explain anything to anyone who wears a beard here about how pleasant this gadget is :-) If I went running (unfortunately I cannot do sports where my knees are constantly suffering from hard hits ) and I would like to look professional, I would definitely be wearing this sweatshirt.
However, I use it both in leisure time activities or hiking, as well as any time I‘m leaving home, if the weather is suitable for the sweatshirt. In the summer, I mostly combined it with Kilpi ASHER-M shorts, and through the colder weather I can highly recommend Kilpi NUUK-M pants, which I also cannot allow.
In short, when you find clothes you are satisfied with in all respects, first you like it and you do not give it out of your hand/ or take if off :-) and second you are very happy to share its benefits ... and such is the Kilpi ASSASIN-M sweatshirt for me.
