The soft touch fabric is very comfortable, and its 4-way stretch materials & raglan sleeves allow for maximum mobility during the run. The fabric is also sweat wicking, which allows your sweat to move around the garment so it evaporates quicker, which allows you to keep cool, and its flat locked seams ensures you wont feel any irritation during your run.
