And just how can clothes be better than bare skin during the sticky Summer? Allow The North Face’s Better Than Naked range to demonstrate.
Try wearing an ultralight, race-ready tee, with mesh ventilation down the back for optimum breathability on long runs. Strategically placed back panels feature FlashDryTM fibres that work with your body to improve drying time and keep you cool during Summer.
Stitch-free critical seams reduce chafing during arm turnover, so you can hit your stride, stay focused and push through.
New lightweight fabric is made with a blend of polyester and polypropylene to rapidly move moisture away from skin and dry quickly; providing extreme breathability, superior wicking, and enhanced odour resistance.
Body-mapped ventilation in the form of mesh panels under arms and on sides keep you cool and breezy.
This short sleeve is tailored for an athletic body shape, and is available in a women’s cut too.
Try the Better Than Naked range and find out why it’s elite athlete Ben Brimble‘s preferred kit.
“If you are a runner, this is the best lightweight wicking shirt on the market. I have tried many companies’ wicking shirts for Summer running (Nike, Asics, etc.), and they all are too heavy for the heat. This shirt is light and extremely breathable. Even in extreme humidity, it doesn’t feel too heavy.” Con, USA
“I’ve put on almost 100 miles on in this shirt since I bought it. Ran a full marathon training distance in it yesterday, no chafing, high visibility for highway runs. The only bad thing about this shirt is that I don’t have more of them.”
“The Better Than Naked line has become my go-to running wear. Over the last two years I have purchased five short sleeve shirts (in an attempt to always have one clean and ready for a run). The fit is great, they are super comfortable, lightweight and fast-drying. Lots of sharp looking colours too!” Rick, USA
