Cold-weather running shirts
Short for “Pettet Endurance Project,” PEP is a brand-new, merino-wool company devoted to meeting the needs of endurance athletes—and these long-sleeved shirts (men’s Shevlin; women’s Milo) are as cozy and top notch as they come. The fit is slim and long, with raglan sleeves, comfortable thumbholes and a slightly heavier-weight wool (compared to most merino running apparel) that is perfect for chilly morning runs. Like other merino apparel, it doesn’t hold odors; unlike other merino, its densely-woven fabric is remarkably durable, standing up well to the elements and abrasion from hydration packs. And, for extremely high-quality, made-in-the-USA apparel, the price point is astoundingly low. You’ll want to keep wearing this shirt long after your run is over.
