Rhone Sentry Short Sleeve

The Sentry is an ultra lightweight, moisture-wicking top that contains Rhone’s new GoldFusion technology, preventing offensive odors from hanging around. The Sentry is excellent to wear during both high-intensity and low-effort activities. Breathability is on point, conferred in part by creative stitching that produces parallel bands of ventilation around the tee. Aesthetically, this is something you can wear even after you left your workout. The stitching has subtle horizontal stripes, which helps the Sentry avoid being another bland monochrome tee and draws attention to the wearer’s musculature without screaming about it.
