I sweat a lot. And I sweat more than a lot when I’m working out. Whether I’m running or lifting or cycling, my internal air conditioner is quick-tempered and turns all of its knobs to 11 at the slightest hint of heat. So, naturally, a breathable, flexible, and durable running shirt is really important for me. I’ve been trying out fitness apparel for months now (and yeah, I’ll keep doing so for months ahead so be mindful of updates) from different brands and have put together some of my favorite running shirts worth your time. Whether summer heat demands a performance shirt for your everyday or you’ve been wanting to upgrade your current (and maybe stinky) inventory, take a look.
Brooks Mens Stealth Singlet
I’m not a huge fan of bare shoulders (mostly because my back hair shows and it’s unsightly) but this is one of a few shirts that are slowly changing my mind. The fitted cut really conforms to my body and the moisture-wicking and quick-drying fabric makes it hard to realize just how much I might be sweating at any given moment. It’s also really comfortable and allows for full-motion for any activity.
Ten Thousand Distance Shirt
Ten Thousand doesn’t just make an excellent pair of shorts, they make a great shirt to match. The Distance Shirt is as light as a feather, but is still able to magically sop up sweat. It’s the best of both worlds, really.
Lululemon Metal Vent Tech 2.0
This shirt from Lululemon is breathable and has seamless construction to ensure no chafing occurs. It also has “anti-stink” technology so you don’t need to immediately take it off after a workout.
Muezna Dri Fit Shirt
This pack of three Dri Fit shirts is pretty much a steal. You need more than one if you’re getting it all sweaty every day, and these sleeves are designed with anti-odor technology, as well as mesh panels to increase breathability.
Under Armour Tech 2.0
This 100% Polyester shirt from Under Armour comes in over 20 different colors. The fabric is quick drying and ultra soft. You’ll hardly notice it’s there.
Hanes Long Sleeve Cool Dri
If it’s super sunny out, a long sleeve shirt can help out a lot. This one is designed with a 50+ UPF rating, so your arms don’t get too sunburnt while running outside.
