I was in the market for a durable, yet breathable race shirt for orienteering and adventure racing. In searching for a shirt, I happened upon True Story via a web browser search. After reading some of the details about the pro race shirt, it almost sounded too good to be true. On paper it checked all my boxes. I figured I’d roll the dice and order one. Knowing that European sizing typically runs a little small, I opted for size XL. The sizing turned out to be perfect. The shirt itself is great. There are 3 different style panels that make up this shirt. The back is mesh and the most breathable of the 3. Then there is the arm and shoulder panels which are also mesh but seem to be a stronger material than the back. Lastly is the front panel which is not mesh but provides good protection running through the woods. The shirt itself is very stylish. I purchased the red and black which was on my list of must haves. I really like the the dark panels under arms and down the sides. I feel it will show better over time and not look discolored. I put the shirt through a good test and it performed great. Overall, I’m super pleased with this shirt. It ticked all the boxes and then some. I’ll likely but other products from True Story in the future.
The shirt is pleasant to the touch, light, does not absorb odors and looks good. Ideally.
True story suggested a size L for me based on my actual height/weight (195cm/89kg). The pants are much more snug fit than some others, and originally I thought they would restrict movement in orienteering. However, having had them on 2 times it seems that flexible material in the back works very well and these became my top choice for orienteering competitions in most conditions.
Will use them today in province night orienteering championships too as weather is going to be warm (+12C to 15C expected).
True story suggested a size L + 5cm based on my actual height/weight (195cm/89kg). This is a perfect fit for activities that require harder leg swinging like orienteering competition, interval training, etc. Some other tights that don't fit as well may restrict movement or start dropping from waist when wider movement is made, but these stay on place very well for me.
True story suggested a size L + 5cm for me based on my actual height/weight (195cm/89kg). This is a perfect snug fit for me and longer sleeves allow for much better movement than with some other jackets (sleeves tend to stick and restrict movement if they're too short).
I haven't yet tested this in foul weather (heavy rain, sleet, etc), but the material looks like it will not get dripping wet.
Nice fit, comfortable to wear
Excellent quality and fit.
A nice, well-fitting orienteering shirt. I am happy with my purchase.
As an Australian Ukrainian, I LOVE the fact that a good chunk of the payment is being donated to support Ukrainian refugees. That in turn made me want to support the company whose product production intentions aren’t purely profit based. The other refreshing bit is, the product isn’t cheaply constructed or printed, so well worth the price. Size wise, I ran with an S as I’m tall and slim with broad shoulders and the jacket fit like a glove. Slava Ukraini!

The thought process behind these tights is amazing! I have never worn anything like this! 🔥
I bought this hoodie because proceeds go to supporting Ukrainian refugees in Latvia and because, to me, wearing recognisable symbols matters. I experienced great customer service when I wanted to change the size of my order. I LOVE this hoodie. It is comfortable, has a GREAT design and it of very high quality. I'm getting more products from True Story and I can't recommend them more.
By far my favorite running tights. They fit very well and don't slide off during running. The best thing are the spacious pockets - it's possible to carry several energy gels and even a tiny bottle in them, keys, a snack or phone.
Love this tights for orienteering. Great fit from waist to ankles, light and very durable.
One of the best tights I own. Comfortable and really pro looking. But what I love the most about these tights is the pockets! You can fit phone, soft flask, gels, keys, whatever you need.
