Get ready for running in the summer heat in these New Balance Prism run shorts, complemented by the NBx Prism tank. The shorts, with their ultra light and breathable material, super thin – yet sturdy – built-in brief, and side ventilation panels keep you cool no matter how high the mercury rises. With a LIGHTNING DRY® technology, your sweat seems to magically disappear, which prevents the shorts from feeling heavy, and sticking to your legs when the real summer sweating gets on.
The tank has the same technology in their inner layer which keeps you cool and comfortable, despite wearing black in the heat (typically not a runner’s best idea). It is stitched with welded seams that prevent chafing on those long runs, and reduce the weight of the top. And better yet, both the shorts and tank have Polygience® silver-ion technology that resists odor, so you don’t need to worry about offending your training partners. The psychedelic neon design on the back of the tank, and strip across the front, will also give you flashbacks of the 80s.
Before you head out in your new shorts though don’t forget to write your contact information on the “ICE tag”. Otherwise known as the “In Case of Emergency” tag, which is a small, strong plastic strip, tucked away in the little music/key pocket on the back. They really did think of everything with these shorts!
Feedback: This gear is not for you if you prefer to cover more of your leg since the short has a small 3-inch inseam. The top is also a snug fit, so if you like a more flowing, loose-fit on your upper half, then it may not be your best summer buy.
Shorts: $47 USD
