Running Shirts to Keep You Cool: Lululemon Swiftly Tech V Neck

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:Some of the most comfortable hot-weather shirts for women are made by Lululemon. And now they smell better than ever. The V Neck is made with a silver fiber called Silverescent that prevents odor over the life of the garment. (It’s not the environmentally questionable silver. When we dug into the background on Silverescent we discovered that it is unrelated to the nanotechnology materials that have drawn concerns recently.) Here is your training plan: wear this shirt (or long-sleeve version), run in the hot sun, and come out smelling like roses. ($58)
