A classic ‘must-have’ in every runner’s wardrobe and the go-to garment for running. This Short Sleeve V.1 Classic Jersey boasts our signature MERINO + CARBON blend which offers great natural thermo-regulation and enhanced wicking and drying properties.
The material was developed to help maintain a constant temperature for runners and therefore we knew it needed to include a larger percentage of superfine merino wool as this is the best fibre for keeping you cool in the summer but warm in the winter. Blended with Carbon, this unique material wicks sweat 10X faster than 100% merino wool, providing the ultimate fabric for running in all climates.
Tested by our ambassadors in extreme conditions including a couple of ultra races in temperatures ranging from +40C to -40C, this fabric helps maintain temperature where overheating and excess sweating could be fatal.
The jersey has a tailored fit with a half zip neck opening to offer venting in the summer heat but some additional warmth through the winter.
Using superfine merino wool also has the benefit of being naturally UV resistant and anti microbial so no nasty smells that typical synthetic fibres can give over time. A neat side zipped pocket provides storage for your essentials.
A word from founder, Stuart: This fabric took over 2 years to develop and was the first bespoke fabric we developed because I knew synthetic fabrics didn’t work for runners. Sure they wick sweat but they also make you sweat as they heat you up too fast. Merino was the obvious fibre choice but managing the wicking was the biggest obstacle to improve as 100% merino wool tents to wet out once saturated in sweat. By adding the Carbon to the merino wool, we managed to increase the wicking properties of this material by over 10X.?
