As the temperatures rise the shirts typically come off when running. Well, at least the guys. Ladies also have some options to keep cool in the warm summer heat.
However, running shirtless can have the opposite affect that you are planning and actually keep you warmer than if you wore a good wicking shirt.
You see, when you don’t have on a shirt your sweat sticks around on your skin, keeping you warm. Wearing a tech shirt will wick away the sweat off your body and keep you more comfortable and cool, allowing you to perform your best. Yes, a good tech shirt will keep you cooler than wearing no shirt at all! Remember, a shirt has a greater purpose than to just cover your body, and you won’t allow it to take on that role if you don’t put one on.
So the next time you think about ditching the shirt, think about the purpose of tech wear and make the smart choice.
