Running Shirts to Keep You Cool: Icebreaker SS Quest Crewe

I've heard conflicting things about synthetics and their ability to keep me cool. What should I wear while running in this brutal heat?

Who would have believed that one of the best-performing materials for keeping cool is wool? It’s true. New Zealand-based Icebreaker uses the country’s soft Merino wool to create a running shirt that pulls sweat off your body naturally and provides sublime comfort. Wool also resists odor (a lot more than synthetics) so you can just let it air dry between sessions. Nice techie features include eyelet venting panels, an MP3 cord loophole, and a stash pocket in the back. ($56)
