Running Shirts to Keep You Cool: Mountain Hardwear Way2Cool S/S T

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

A:

White shirts keep your body cooler because of the color’s ability to reflect light. But plain white running shirts often look somewhat medicinal on a sweaty runner finishing a grueling mid-day tempo. The Way2Cool shirt offsets this appearance with sport splashes of color. Bright colors are good for night running, and the shirt’s reflective trim adds to the safety factor. True to all Mountain Hardwear tailoring, the flat-seam construction and mesh synthetic fabric make it comfortable when temps rise. ($58)
