First the shirt. It's super thin, almost like women's lingerie. But it's cool and comfy. I like wearing it, even though you can see my chest hair through it. It's an ideal running shirt for me. Thankfully I live in a warm climate, and I get hot when I run, so I can wear a singlet almost year-round. This is a terrific running shirt, but I have others I like just as well which cost much less.
The shorts are just about my favorite shorts ever. They dry quickly (which I noticed even while running in the rain) and are super light. They have a gel-sized pocket on each hip, and a zipper pocket on the back that's big enough for a key and license and credit card. I like these about as much as my Hind running shorts which I bought 5 years ago and have not been able to find a replacement for.
These are great running clothes for warm-weather running and racing, and for year-round running if you live in Texas and love to run in next-to-nothing even when it's cold. However, if I buy these again, it will certainly have to be on a major sale. Finally, do they live up to the name, "Better Than Naked"? Well, Kelly agrees, I do look better with these clothes on than I do naked. For running comfort, they're almost better than naked, but not quite. For the sake of my neighbors, though, I'll stick with the next best thing.
