10 Best Running T-shirts Reviewed & Tested


All of the gear you pick makes a difference in your run, especially your clothing. Check out this guide on the best running t-shirts around.

At first thought, a t-shirt may not seem like it makes much difference. A t-shirt is just a t-shirt, right?

Well in some senses yes, and in others no. When it comes to running, particularly if you’re competitive about it, every piece of gear and clothing matters. So overlooking a garment that covers your torso, and overall a good percentage of your body seems a poor choice. They come in many forms and designs and offer different variations on clothing tech, a factor which remains constant is the T-Shirt design. Nowadays we look at T-shirts in terms of the level of performance to be offered by the t-shirt in relation to the sports or social activities for which it will be used.

Long distance runners want a shirt that can remain comfortable when worn with hydration running vest, the shirt must give excellent wick performance, rapid dry out capability, have designed in seam systems (preferably flat seams) to avoid the potential for skin irritation and painful chafing. The fabrics used in the construction of the shirt must be able to have ventilative properties while ensuring a comfortable feel against the skin, even protection from harmful long-term exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun. Regardless of long distance running, competitive running or short runs, we want a t-shirt which allows a free range of motion for our bodies and so we see the extensive use of combined fabrics which will give four directional stretchability while still keeping a constant comfortable FIT and these requirements are achieved through the use of modern light-weight, comfortable and durable fabrics.

The bottom line is: We want to have a high performing t-shirt which also looks good, has excellent performance and qualities while also presenting a nice sense of style, with all these criteria in mind we have carried out extensive cross-referencing research to review and try out the current best choices of running t-shirts for you.

Criteria for choosing Best Running T-shirts

Running t-shirts are as good as running shoes or any other important running gear that is why one  should be very careful when  choosing a pair of running t-shirt from the many variety  of them offered in the market and stalls today. Every runner has his or her own requirement, perception and taste, that is why  running t-shirts come in both genders, age, different style, color, sizes and made from different fabrics to suit the need of every runner.

A runner can choose a running shirt that is either long sleeved, short sleeved or just without any sleeve depending on the weather, area of a trail or just personal perception of the runner. Most runners though would do long sleeved or 3|4 sleeved running t-shirts during cold weather seasons because the long sleeves protect the runner from cold. Short sleeved or no sleeved running shirts are good for hot weather seasons because they help to regulate moisture, heat and body temperatures of the runner’s body. Early morning and evening or late night runners would prefer choosing long sleeved running t-shirts for warmth purposes whereas daytime runner may opt to choose running t-shirts that short sleeved or no sleeved at all.

The fabric of the running t-shirt should be breathable and lightweight for the efficient running of the runner. Lightweight running tees give the runner an easy time on the trail because they do not hold the runner down. Breathability enhances coolness of the runner as is on the trail. Above all, the comfort of the runner is key. A runner should choose a running t-shirt that is comfortable so that to have an easy time.

Best running tees should be moisture wicking and breathable. If you’ve never tried a technical running tee, trust us it will revolutionize your running, you’ll never look back! Most should be slim or a loose cut with a few form-fitting and stretchy. They wash and dry easily and will keep your running happily in warmer weather. They also work well layered under a windproof jacket in mild but wet weather.

The best running t-shirt for a runner is one that is designed to keep the runner dry and chaff-free when the runner is exercising or racing. The market today is large with different brands of running t-shirts. This is good because a runner has multiple of t-shirts to choose from, considering all the qualities he or she may be wishing to have a running t-shirt. This is also difficult and complicated for the runner to choose the best shirt for him or herself among the many t-shirts. That is why, a runner should be fully equipped with information from guides, like this one, reviews and researchers on how to select the best t-shirt for him or her use.

This guide will help you learn how to choose the best running t-shirt for your needs.

Factors to consider when choosing the Best Running T-shirt

So when looking for a running t-shirt think about the following;


The basic styles of running t-shirts are basically categorized into three. Running tanks short-sleeved running t-shirts and long-sleeved t-shirts. Just like the names, the t-shirt can be grouped by the arm length.  are differentiated by the length of the arm.

Tanks: Running tanks are typically made for women, though they can also be found for men. Tanks, especially those that are racer back style, provide the most flexibility for movement in the arms and the most airflow to the underarms—which can help keep things cool and dry during long or hot (or both) runs.

The short sleeve t-shirt: It is mostly considered and preferred by men. It is also the most popular form of running t-shirts. A lot of athletes tend to like more the short sleeved running t-shirt because when made from good and right fabric, they are more flexible in running and also provide good comfort. They are designed to offer a high range of arm movement and to allow good body temperature control. They are mostly used during mid-sunny weather conditions.

The long-sleeved t-shirt: Mostly used by male runners in the countryside or areas with cold weather conditions. It can also be perfect during early morning or late evening running times. They are made from different fabrics from pure cotton to synthetic, depending on the specialized area of a run of the runner. In cooler weather conditions like summer, getting a pure cotton or blended cotton and synthetic fibers will be comfortable and recommendable while pure polythene or synthetic fiber will be good and comfortable for use in summer, sunny and hot weather conditions.


Running t-shirts are made from three basic materials that are comfortable for the runner. The materials differ in weight and are used during different seasons and weather conditions. The materials are; Pure polyester, pure cotton, and synthetic fibers. The materials though can be blended to form unique fabrics to fit specific weather conditions and seasons.

Running t-shirts with the highest rate of moisture management are designed from synthetic fibers which are polyester made a hundred percent. The rating is followed by blending of synthetic and cotton. Cotton fibers are the least breathable t-shirts and least rating when moisture management ability is concerned. Cotton t-shirts are heavy and fit well when used by runners in the countryside or cold weather conditions.


The weather condition or climatic season can be a determinant factor on the type of running t-shirt to select. The style and fabric of the running t-shirt also coordinate in making the right running t-shirt for the running season of the runner. If it a cold weather season, it is preferred for a runner to consider having a t-shirt that is of heavy fabric and long sleeved. The opposite should apply during summer.


Another very important criterion when choosing the best running t-shirt for your routine is a comfort. In fact, comfort is a key factor for any serious runner whether a long distance or a short distance runner. The most and best comfortable type of T-shirts are the running t-shirts that are made from stretchy and elastic fabrics to fit the body of the runner. Well-fitting running t-shirts prevent rubbing and chaffing of body parts of the runner, hence preventing corrosion of body parts that cause minor injuries. Well- fitting t-shirts are made from fabric that holds the muscles of the runner, creating an allowance for energy production by the body of the runner and hence the runner can keep going for a longer time.

For a running t-shirt to be considered comfortable, the technical running t-shirt fabric should be lightweight and breathable. Breathability of the fabric helps the runner to be able to release moisture and sweat well without straining. Breathable fabric regulates the amount of heat the body of the runner gets I conduct with. The lightweight fabric helps the runner to move with ease without feeling the gear is too heavy for him or her. Lightweight fabric is not only a consideration to consider in only running t-shirts but also any running gear. Lightweight contributes a handful to the comfortability of the runner.

Comfortable running t-shirts help the runner to focus more on their running and the trail more rather focusing on how uncomfortable the running t-shirt is as he is exercising.

The Functionality of the Top

How efficient is the running top, even though both male and female athletes love these running tops, they tend to vary a little when looking at their functionality. Many female athletes have in cooperated the running tops to be worn both when working out or when not doing any sporting activity. More like looking for sporting tops that are very versatile and can fit into any clothing environment. Today’s sports t-shirts are designed in a stylish affair, which makes them look good regardless of what activity you are involved in: running in the park or just enjoying a picnic with friends. They not only offer comfort but ten they also a good wardrobe option to the athletes who are not into dressing in very fashionable attires.

Is the running t-shirt well fitting the runner?

The best running t-shirt is one that is fitting the runner’s body, just like a model in a t-shirt on the runway. Well, fitting t-shirts are more comfortable and are lighter than wearing baggy running t-shirts that may go with the flow of the wind or swing more often as the runner is on the trail exercising, making it harder and hectic to concentrate on the running.

What features does the running t-shirt have?

Every runner has specific designs, features, and preference on the kind of running t-shirt they want to choose. It is important when the runner is choosing a running t-shirt to be on the know on the features the running t-shirt has. Does the t-shirt have zips or is it buttoned? Does the running t-shirt have pockets? Knowing what kind of features will help the runner to not only feel good when using the running t-shirt but also enjoy exercising because the t-shirt is comfortable.
