Everything that makes a good workout tee is present in Lululemon’s Metal Vent Tech Surge Short Sleeve, which is currently on sale for up to 44 percent off depending on color and size. The fine details just right: barely visible mesh holes to increase breathability, seams are repositioned away from potential chafing zones and the tag is easily torn off (all Lululemon tags are).
Most importantly though, the t-shirt’s fabric is neither scratchy like merino wool nor plastic-y like other synthetics. And yet, it packs the benefits of both: it wicks away moisture, it resists odor buildup (and its heathered colors don’t scream performance). I wear it primarily for running — I own three, which I kept in heavy rotation while training for a recent marathon — but after a handful of guides who work on Mt. Rainier told me it was their favorite t-shirt for climbing I’ve begun to wear it hiking and skiing too.
