First Impressions & Observations: 

The first thing I noticed about this shirt was the fit. It is designed to fit well, but not tight. Which makes it feel like it’s almost floating over your skin, giving it a very breezy feeling when you run. As it is sleeveless I was concerned about chafing under the arms, but due to the cut around the arms this hasn’t been a problem at all so far, even after a 30km stretch on the trails. The seams also lie flat against your body, which increases comfort and decreases chances of chafing.

Very lightweight.

Great design.

No chafing.

Not too tight.

Quick drying.


Not a lot of color choices.

Bottom Line: 

This is an ultra-lightweight mesh shirt that will keep you cool and comfortable on the trails.

This is perfect is you are looking for a high performance piece to run the trails or race in. If you need something lightweight that is going to keep you cool, even on the longest run, the Sarix is the piece you want.

The Sarix is available in women‘s or men‘s styles.
