This is a superlight long sleeved zip tee with a few handy features in the build that help improve the overall comfort and performance without you having to think about it.
Move fast, run light and stay cool with our technical long-sleeve Sonic LS Tee - the next level in mountain running comfort.
The two-fabric construction of the Sonic LS Tee is designed to offer outstanding moisture management and UPF protection in the same garment. While Motiv™ fabric on the chest, shoulders and upper back is slightly heavier for sun protection, the use of open-knit mesh panels under the arms, at the cuffs and on the lower back increases airflow exactly where it’s needed. A regular fit helps preserve that airflow and the deep venting zip on the chest is bonded in and extended to the sternum for extra comfort when wearing a running pack.
With soft, lightweight micro-seam stitching to help eradicate abrasion and keep the weight down to just 135g, the Sonic LS Tee is a highly specialised long-sleeve mountain running top.
Rab's Sonic LS Tee uses Motiv fabric made by Rab themselves, this has a good deal of stretch built in and is also super breathable. Another comfortable addition to the Sonic is Polygiene, this will help you stink that little bit less after a long day working hard on the hills. This long sleeve version offers greater coverage for days in under the sun and since you can always roll up the sleeves this is a handy option to prevent sun burn or ward off the chill.
The tag on the back of the neck is super low profile and made of a soft plastic, so no more itchy tags that need cutting off. All of the seams are super low profile, which not only means less bulk but also better comfort over long distance runs and the slight offset across the shoulders will relieve pressures from a pack.
