Best Overall Men's Running Shirt
New Balance Ice Short Sleeve
The New Balance Ice Short Sleeve
was our Editors' Choice Award winner because it was the most comfortable shirt of the ones we tested and was also the most breathable. Simply put, if you need a new all-purpose running shirt, we are confident that this is the best one you can choose. The slick polyester fabric is feather-light and so smooth it's hard to tell you are wearing a shirt at all. The cut is loose and non-restrictive, while the abundance of mesh paneling on the shoulders and underarms translates into lightning quick evaporation. We found it to be a nearly perfect running shirt.
Top Pick for Features
Salomon Fast Wing Tee
The Salomon Fast Wing Tee
is our Top Pick because of its great features that we wish every running shirt had. This shirt is specifically designed for ultra distance outings where a pack is a must. The silicon beads on the shoulders hold the pack securely in place, preventing shirt ride-up and rubbing. Best of all is the dual pockets on each side, out of the way of a pack, but easily within reach and big enough for more than one energy gel each. We also loved having the zip-neck option. While not the most comfortable shirt of the bunch, we wore it for a long ultra race and had no complaints.
