Ashmei Merino & Carbon löparlinne
A Running Race Vest that keeps you cool whatever the conditions.
Race vests should provide maximum comfort so that you never notice them when you run your race with the aim of achieving a PB. To do this you need to blend the correct fibres to guarantee that you stay cool and any sweat is wicked away and dried ultra fast.
We decided to blend our own bespoke fabric as nothing was available that fitted the brief. We wanted to use merino wool but knew we had to improve the performance of this provided with regard to drying. We blended carbon to the merino that speeds up the wicking and drying without effecting the natural properties of the merino wool, maintaining comfort by warming you when you are cold, say the start of the race but ultimately cooling you once the race starts and you start to warm up.
The Women’s Merino + Carbon Running Race Vest is also very lightweight as we specified the exact weight of the material when we developed this and because the merino content regulates your body temperature it remains warm even if it rains and you get soaking wet, unlike synthetics that chill you instantly.
We have tailored the fit of the Women’s Merino + Carbon Running Race Vest to fit the female form and have not included a shelf bra as these simply squash you and add additional warmth making you sweat more. Instead we recommend you wear a specific performance sports bra that will give you the support you need.
Merino wool is also VERY environmentally friendly. It is a sustainable fibre that biodegrades and because it does not attract bacteria like synthetics it never smells and so can be washed without the need for special chemical detergents and at a cool wash.
The Women’s Merino + Carbon Running Race Vest features a rear earphone cable router, slight scooped hem at the back and flatlock seams.
