According to this, the Running Shirt is made to be the only Running Shirt in your closet. But it can also be you only short-sleeved Baselayer to be worn under your Cycling Jersey, Running Jacket, Running Longsleeve or even in everyday life.
Here’s why we think it is really a 2-in-1 product that can be used as Running Shirt and as a Baselayer without any compromises:
The light-weight fabric has a structure that allows wind through to cool you down when you wear it as a Running Shirt. This unique structure of the fabric also has an insulating effect that will keep your core warm when using it as a Baselayer and wear a second layer on top.
Perfect and cooling Running Shirt if you just wear this. Perfect and warming Baselayer if combined with a Cycling Jersey or Running Jacket.
This product is antibacterial and needs less washing. Wheater you use it as a Base Layer or a Running Shirt: it lasts much longer and helps save water and energy - your money.

We only produce in European factories that are socially and environmentally responsible. We only use high-quality, locally sourced fabrics, and we always produce in smaller batches. You can read more about our product dogmas here. If you wonder, why our prices are rather high compared to some better known brands, please have a look here.
Instead of washing your garments after each exercise, you can rinse under water and hang it up to dry, thereby reducing washing to every 3-8 times you use it. And with less washing and less bacterial growth, your garments also last longer, so you can buy less. Good for your wallet and good for the environment.
We know that you are probably not used to this behaviour. But, please: give it a try!
Train more, wash less!
