Helly Hansen’s base layers have been incredibly popular among skiers and snowboarders looking for moisture management and breathability in one. The company takes their baselayer technology and applies it to the Long-Sleeve W Pace ½ Zip, creating a shirt that’s breathable enough for long runs but also offers warmth when it’s needed.

As one tester put it, “It was comfortable for cold mornings that quickly heated up.” That’s thanks to mesh panels on the back and sides of the shirt, which allowed us to dump heat once we picked up the pace or the sun crested the mountains washing warmth over our running path. The synthetic fabric pulled moisture away from the skin is designed to keep you dry and comfortable.
