As with most of the equestrian industry I am quite traditional in my ways; wearing old cotton polo’s and T’s is what I have done for the majority of my riding life. However, with technical materials storming the market in the last couple of years I thought I should really give them a go and so bought the Dublin Maddison Airflow Top. 

I bought from Dublin as its always been a brand which I’ve known and trusted over the years and the top was very reasonably priced at £29.99. I bought the Carmine Rose colour over a month ago and have so say love it so much that I’ve now also bought the Blue Dove!

In the warm weather the material has proved incredibly breathable (which is needed in the boiling temperatures we’ve had in the last 6 weeks!), they are really comfortable to wear, so quick to dry after every wash and still come out like new every time. They have a ¼ zip which seems very durable and adds comfort, the breathability not only comes from the material itself but also the perforated mesh panels which really add to the overall aesthetics making them a lovely top to look at whilst being exceptionally practical.

I would highly recommend purchasing one of these and step with the technical movement, not against it. I certainly won’t be looking back to my cotton polos any time soon!
