Whether you’re looking for a fast shirt for your next race, or just looking for a way to get rid of the farmer’s tan you developed this spring, summertime is the perfect season to pick up a new singlet. The sleeveless construction also allows greater airflow to keep you cooler on warm days. Here are a few of our favorites for hot summer running:
For an Aggressive Aesthetic
When it’s race day, gear up in something that will get you psyched to go when the gun goes off. For an aggressive aesthetic, we like the Saucony Men’s Inferno Singlet. The bold graphic and contrast colors are ready for action on race day, or any day you want to feel like a boss on your run.
For Excellent Moisture Transfer
No one likes the slop of a sweat-soaked running shirt. When it heats up, reach for the BOA Men’s Basic Waffle Singlet. The woven structure of the fabric pulls moisture away from your skin quickly, helping to keep you dry and comfortable while you train.
For Intense Ventilation
Even in a running shirt without sleeves, there are still scorching days that make you wish for just a little extra ventilation. When it looks like it might be that kind of run, reach for your Mizuno Men’s Aero Singlet for optimal ventilation. Featherweight fabric and a burnout mesh pattern on the front and back increase airflow to keep you cooler and more comfortable.
For UPF Protection
When the sun’s rays start beating down this summer, fight back with UPF sun protection run apparel. Try the Pearl Izumi Men’s Fly In-R-Cool Singlet for UPF 20+ protection from damaging UV rays. In-R-Cool technology also works to cool your skin’s temperature by up to five degrees, to give you a little relief during extra hot training sessions.
For Chafe Prevention
A singlet with streamlined seams will help prevent chafing while you run. The Asics Men’s ARD Singlet boasts welded seams and generous armholes to prevent chafing. Cool bonus: the front Asics logo on this singlet also doubles as a media port, making it easy to bring tunes with you on your long run.
