New Balance Heat Half-zip review £65

Soft to the touch, this is the kind of long sleeve that serves two roles. On cooler mornings it’s the top of choice, but it also works well as a layer over a thin t-shirt. It then provides good breathable performance for most conditions. And yes, we admit we even use it for everyday casual wear such is the cut and look.

Verdict: 9/10
When style meets performance. Great.

The September-October 2018 edition of Trail Running contains plenty more long-sleeve, half-zip tops reviews.
