A classic ‘must-have’ in every runner’s wardrobe and the go-to garment for running. This Short Sleeve 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 +40º to -40º, 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.”

    This became my go-to shirt for summer running from the day I bought it until it became too cold somewhere around the end of September. It coped admirably trips to California and the South of France, and saved suitcase space as I didn’t bring another running jersey. Outstanding!

    So I got this to complete the range – ling sleeve, singlet and now shortsleeved run jersey. Works so well in slightly warmer conditions and to aid regulating body temp on those rainy days where you need a light running goretex jacket over the top. It’s comfortable, never rubs, has a decent length zip so you can cool down and it looks smart. As with the long sleeve jersey the side pocket is great for keys, a card etc. Ideal when travelling as the merino wool means you can complete a good workout and yet wear the jersey multiple days without and stink. Another hit from ashmei. I’m a slim 194cm and wear a medium.

    I use the “Run Classic Short Sleeve Jersey” for mountain biking.
    Fantastic feeling on the skin.
    Still smells pleasant after 3 tours at approx. 32°C / 89.6 °F
    retains its form after washing.
    I like the simple style with the certain something.
    just a idea: bring a MTB Line: same like your Cycle line but with a little looser and shorter sleeves 😉

    Extremely good and also good looking shirt for running. It feels warm when it is slight chilly in the morning but also feels cooler than pure merino jerseys. It also feels very nice even commuting running when you have small running backpack and your back gets sweat.

    This was the first Ashmei product that I purchased. I travelled to a region with extreme heat. I was a little anxious with the material – would it (garment) wick moisture – would it provide adequate cooling – would it be too heavy after the workout??? Surprisingly, it out perfumed my expectations. The remarkable feature was that it remained “odor” free after a long hard run allowing me to buy buy after run drinks without concern that I was a focus of discussions. Looks great works great. A great product, – I am an avid cyclist as well and look forward to trying other products. CHAPEAU Ashmei – a job well done!

    got one each of these for myself and my wife for an ultra in Iceland, where it was tested to extremes!! fantastic kit, much better quality merino wool than any other running top I have ever bought, great fit, and super stylish also, couldn’t recommend it highly enough!

    Just an amazing quality run jersey, especially for long trail runs. I’ve owned a lot of kit and this is in a different league.

    I’ve owned this shirt since April (2017). I run anywhere between 30 – 50 miles a week. Fantastic shirt, great wicking, no smell (unlike synthetic shirts I own), great in heat and cold, keeps you warm when wet.

    Good fit (fits well without being tight) and light weight, zip opens to a good depth to help with ventilation.

    Pocket is big enough for a bar or gel and a key but most modern smart phones wouldn’t fit in it – although this isn’t a big deal as most shorts or tights have a pocket big enough for one.

    The biggest test this shirt has had with me is a recce of the first leg of the Bob Graham Round – it performed brilliantly for the four and a half hours keeping me exactly the right temperature no matter what the weather was doing.

    Yes it’s expensive but this shirt is well worth it.

    Bought a V2 Jersey in mid June 2017. I am a big fan of cutting edge technical fabrics overall, for both athletics as well as normal wear clothes, so Ashmei was right up my alley. The quality of the construction and the materials is evident from the minute you get it out of the package. Really strong attention to detail – love the wireless headphone tether on the neck, for example. The material is wonderful. My skin is very sensitive overall so first generation merino wool products were still too ‘itchy’ for me. This has not been an issue with my Ashmei jersey and feels very comfortable.

    I bought a long-sleeve jersey as well that I haven’t yet worn as temps haven’t allowed. The construction and quality appear to be the same/similar. I have been really impressed by the fabric and how it wicks and particularly how well it breathes and dries post-workout. While definitely not cheap, I certainly feel like I’m getting good value for my money.

    I’ve owned this top for a while, it’s very comfortable and feels great even after a few days of wear without washing.

    Although, at £99, you would expect perfection. I would say that the cut is a little short on the body for me and this tends to put me off wearing it. I’m not sure if it was originally like this or after some washes but I definitely followed the washing guidelines. So be wary if you are a bit long in the body.

    I also bought a singlet/vest – now that is an awesome product! I use it all year round for running and cycling in hot weather and it is a perfect base layer for winter runs/rides. Although it is merino and should be anti bacterial, I think the seems must have some polyester in (to hold shape I guess) as it does tend to smell a bit after prolonged use but no where near a manmade technical top.

  11. Patrik

    WOW! The quality is just amazing! Perfect fitting and smart features like the cord holder in the back! Got compliments at the gym for its design! Ill buy more 🙂

    I have been wanting to try these products for a while and finally ordered this jersey. This may be the finest athletic piece I have ever owned. For mid to warm temp running this jersey delivers all you could ever want. Merino is soft and beautifully stitched. The zippers, headphone cable, stash pockets are all expertly thought out. I will be buying much more of your product!

    So, the Finest Sportswear in the World, this review should right itself then shouldnt it!!!
    Ive been looking at the Ashmei range for quite sometime now but not taken the plunge until now, and, to be honest im glad i did.
    As mentioned in another review the experience of openeing your Ashmei Garment is a Joyful Occasion. Im lucky enough to have been in receipt of some very high end luxury items/garments and have always felt let down by the box openeing ceremony, not so with Ashmei. Open the Box (sealed with a large Ashmei sticker) and you are greeted with a hand written thankyou note, next is a hand tied garment bag, once you have opened this you are through to the Ashmei waxed Paper and within this neatly folded paper is your neatly folded garment, truly a great experience.
    Now the garment itself, its made of wool and im going go running in it??? The first time wearing the Shirt was just for messing round in the house, i can confirm its warm and very comfy to wear. Fits well all round maybe a little tight round my arms but i can definatley live with it.
    Sunday morning 7am im off up into the hills! its a chilly start but im not cold, 10 minutes in and ive run up a couple of steep hils and im starting sweating, the shirt seems fine with this. another 10 minutes in and the sweat is pouring off me, ive broken through the mist and the sun is shining, still im dry, comfortable and enjoying my run. Another 30 mins passes by and im back to my car. Great Run. The Ashmei Tshirt performed better than i could have hoped for. Im still Dry, Im warm but not hot and i feel i could have carried on. All in all a great experience and Ashmei have someone who will champion their products. It will be interesting to see how the shirt performs in 12 months time and if it can stand up to the vigours of numerous runs/rides etc. Thankyou Ashmei for letting me into your secret, great product, great service, greta to be on board!!! 😉

    This was my first item of Ashmei clothing, bought mainly for cycling. I was so impressed with it when it arrived. Firstly, the way Ashmei present the clothing is great – it makes it feel like a very special purchase. The quality, fit and feel of the jersey is just perfect and now I’ve used it three times I can confirm it does exaclty what the brand claim. It removes sweat and keeps you in the temperature sweet spot. Cannot wait until Ashmei release their cycling range as I will be a regular customer. Well done chaps.
