Just as I thought the mornings were getting cooler the weather threw me a curve ball this morning with its high temperatures and muggy humidity. My speedy running friend and I agreed the weather was miserable but decided we probably should not complain about it because in a few short months our runs will be filled with freezing cold temperatures. She said it is pretty miserable running at o-dark thirty in the winter. So for now even though I’m excited about things cooling down a bit – I won’t be upset for these last weeks of MUCK.

The Fall 2012 Saucony line is filled with AWESOME gear. I haven’t seen a Saucony line, till this one, where I literally want one of everything they make. Typically I pick and choose what looks more like me, but this time around – everything looks like something I can see myself wearing.
The Daybreak Long Sleeve did not disappoint.

Details from Saucony’s website:

Add a blast of color to your run!  The Daybreak Long Sleeve has a fashionable burnout print that translates easily from workout to hangout.

  • • Burnout jersey
  • • Moisture wicking
  • • Forward-shifted shoulder seams

 

My thoughts:

The shirt feels like your favorite worn in cotton t-shirt, wicks like a running shirt, and has that burnout tee look to it. It doesn’t say whether it is fitted or semi fitted but I would say it is a slim fitting shirt. I ordered a small and don’t think I would fit an XS  even though I am XS in some of Saucony’s other shirts. I’m not sure if it is pre-shrunk but mine shrank a tad in the dryer. I probably should have air dried it but regardless I still like the fit even after it shrinking. I’ve worn it multiple times since and washed/dried it and it hasn’t shrunk any more.

It’s a burnout tee – so if you wear a colored bra you are going to see it. I’m wearing green and white in the picture and you can definitely tell.

When running it doesn’t ride up at all and won’t flash your stomach or back. At $45 it is a little bit more pricey than the Kinvara Graphic Long Sleeve that I like, but it is a really nice shirt, so I don’t think it’s over priced. Would I pay $50 for it? Probably not – so $45 is just about the limit for this long sleeve. The benefit to this long sleeve over the Kinvara is that it really is cute as a running lifestyle piece – meaning you never really have to wear this running – it could just be a cute shirt in your wardrobe.

I love little details when it comes to apparel – the Saucony logo on the bottom in a scroll type font sealed the deal on the shirt.
