Recent Running Apparel Reviews

The North Face Class V Trunk

rated 5 of 5 stars I own four pairs of these shorts. I'm a big fan. These shorts fit true to size and have a nice built-in liner. It's nice and comfortable, unlike the liners of shorts from some other brands that I've worn. The shorts rest a couple of inches above the knee, and they are comfortable when moving. They work well in activities ranging from running to swimming. A drawstring helps keep the shorts tight in the water. The shorts dry pretty quickly—maybe 15 minutes in the sun or 30-45 outside of the sun. Full review

ExOfficio Give-N-Go Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Fastest drying underwear that I have ever had. Makes for the perfect travel and camping underwear. When I first bought a pair, I thought that they were very pricey. Now on my sixth pair and I feel that they are well worth the money. I have hand-washed these boxer briefs in streams, sinks and in the shower. If I wash them in the morning and hang dry, they are dry by the afternoon/evening. Two pair, is all you need for your adventures. Full review

Columbia PFG Freezer Short Sleeve

rated 5 of 5 stars This shirt is my go-to summer shirt! Stays cool and dry, holds its shape very nicely. This shirt is my go-to summer shirt! Running cross-country in Alabama heat and humidity gets you sweaty. The best thing about this shirt is that even when it is drenched in sweat, it holds its shape perfectly. It doesn't absorb much water and weighs very little. It wicks very well, and sweat evaporates really fast. The shirt is slightly fitted, and VERY comfortable. I wore this all summer backpacking, running,… Full review

New Balance Performance Underwear 9 Inch Inseam Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Long inseam briefs have made a huge difference for me in stopping inner leg chaffing, in rough terrain requiring leg lifting and plunging over obstacles. Half (or less) the cost of equivalent Under Armour and ExOfficio options, and highly durable, these have become my standard "go-to" gear. Ever have a hike, with unexpectedly rough terrain that resulted in chaffing in the upper, inner thigh area? Unfortunately I have experienced this once to the degree that bandages were needed for a week afterwards.

Icebreaker Men's Sphere Short Sleeve Crewe

rated 5 of 5 stars Super comfortable across a variety of conditions. I have several merino hiking shirts which are now pushing ten years old, and looking a bit ragged, so I decided it was time to update my wardrobe.  Though my usual shirt size is XL, I found that the XXL was a more comfortable fit for me. It is cut reasonably long for my longish torso, so my gut isn't hanging out when reaching high. This shirt is made of Icebreaker's new "Cool-Lite" Merino blend, which includes 20% plant-based Tencel threads, plus… Full review

Stoic Merino 200 Boxer Brief

rated 5 of 5 stars Merino wool, good fit. I purchased the large size first (I'm 36" waist) and liked them, but subsequent purchases at medium did well too. Will continue to buy as needed. Live in the mountains, great start to everyday dressing. Full review

Voormi Access Pullover

rated 5 of 5 stars My Voormi Access Pullover is my current favorite and most versatile mid-layer. It has an athletic fit for me at 6'1" 185lb and arms that are plenty long enough for a large. It's both warm and breathable and can be worn anywhere from the city to skinning up Tuck's in the White Mountains. I was an early adopter to the Voormi brand and in constant contact with the company after the first limited edition HIGH-E hoodie sold out. I picked up the Access Pullover as I did not need a mid-layer with a hood… Full review

Injinji Trail 2.0 Midweight Micro

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These toe socks take a little bit of getting used to, but come with a lot of benefits including wet-weather warmth and blister resistance. I have always been a little doubtful when it came to efficacy of toe socks. I think this may be because my first experience with anything like them was the Vibram 5 Finger shoes, which are difficult to put on and tend to smell terrible. Still, I was determined to give these Injinji socks a fair chance and I am glad I did — these things are fantastic! While… Full review

Mammut MTR 201 Tech Shirt

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Mammut MTR 201 Tech Shirt is as tech as its name. The following is a self-described Luddite's take on a shirt that only an engineer could love. Introduction I will start by making it clear that everything being the same I prefer cheap and simple gear. However, as someone who went to school for a long time to study technological change I also understand the need for manufacturers to continually push the design of gear so that it is both safer and more effective for users. In many ways I am a… Full review
