Tops Asics ARD Long Sleeve ½ Zip Top
$90 The feature-packed ard Long Sleeve ½ Zip Top is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a lightweight base layer for cool weather training. Asics uses a silky feeling quick-wicking fabric on the main body and then adds a highly-breathable open knit fabric on the back and lower arms – a combination that provides exceptional comfort and moisture management. To ensure further comfort and minimize chafing, Asics eschews conventional sewing on many critical seams and instead uses smoother and lower-profile glued construction. Strategically placed ref lective highlights provide much appreciated extra visibility when training in the early morning and evening, while the upf 50 sun protection rating is welcome when training in warmer, sunnier conditions. A small zippered pocket on the shoulder can accommodate an energy gel or small mp3 player and avoids the fabric- sag often encountered with lower pocket placements.
highlights give off a f luorescent- like glow after being exposed to a strong light for about 10 minutes. The effect is eye- catching and creates a previously unachievable level visibility (and safety) for anyone training in low light conditions. For protection from the elements, New Balance uses a tightly woven fabric that is lightweight, wind resistant and very breathable. This is highly recommended.
