Classic running shirts are also great adventure shirts. Think about it. They’re made especially to wick sweat away while you’re active, which is also what you want when you’re out hiking and biking—not only when you’re running. And packing fewer items that do many things well is ideal for keeping your bags light when you’re traveling.


Pack Saucony’s Stopwatch Singlet and Short Sleeve shirts for women the next time you’re traveling, and you’ll have solid performance clothing that won’t add weight to your suitcase.


Both the singlet (tank) and short-sleeve shirt are made with 100-percent polyester fabric (70 percent of which is recycled). Because polyester is one of the synthetic materials that can be considered plastic, Saucony makes a conscious effort to minimize its footprint by using more recycled, natural, or other eco-friendly materials whenever possible. The brand’s hangtags are sustainable, too—made from 80 percent post-consumer waste and 20 percent FSC certified paper stock.


The shirts are ideal for your everyday run, as well as for gym workouts and outdoor adventures. They’re extremely lightweight (and pack into the smallest corners of your bag), and have great sweat-wicking performance so you stay dry whether you’re working out or just enjoying yourself on vacation. The fabric has an anti-microbial finish, which resists odors.


The shirts both have an active fit, making them just right on the scale between tight and baggy. They offer good coverage, yet feel barely there when you’re wearing them.


The Women’s Stopwatch Singlet comes in black, white, barely pink, opal blue, clover, purple orchid, evening primrose, directoire blue, and white checker print, and lists for $28 on the Saucony website. The Women’s Stopwatch Short Sleeve comes in black, white, sunny lime, opal blue, Poinciana, and purple orchid, and lists for $32 on the Saucony website.
