In the immortal words of Right Said Fred, “I’m too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts.” If this describes you, we can relate. But for those spring days when it’s too chilly to bear your arms and midriff on the road or trail, we’ve picked a few of our favorite mid-weight running tops to keep you going strong.
Pearl Izumi seems to hit the mark time after time with great performance run apparel. The Pearl Izumi Infinity In-R-Cool Long Sleeve (above, at left) is an excellent blend of technology and feminine style. The In-R-Cool technology in the fabric reacts with perspiration to lower the body’s surface temperature by up to 5%, so you can enjoy lightweight coverage without overheating on transitional spring days.
The Saucony Transition Hoody (above, middle) is another great option for those in-between days when you want a little something extra as you head out on your run. The fabric of this piece is soft and incredibly lightweight. The meshy construction of this hoody makes it very breathable, resulting in fantastic ventilation.
For a great go-to long sleeve top for lightweight coverage, reach for The North Face GTD Long Sleeve (above, at right). Mesh in all the right places makes this top highly breathable, and offers just the right amount of coverage. Minerale fibers further increase breathability, and prevent the odor-building bacteria, so you can stay fresh on your run.
