We launched our Harrier tops in 2014 and they quickly became the training staple Tracksmith employees swear by. Lightweight, soft, moisture-wicking and odor-resistant, all thanks to the natural properties of Merino wool.

Bet On Merino
When it comes to performance fabrics, Merino wool is a freak of nature. A natural, surprisingly soft fiber that regulates temperature, even when drenched with sweat, it’s practically impervious to odor. We love Merino in spring - it’s the ideal material to beat the chill of early mornings and transition through the warmth after sunrise.
We have a love-hate relationship with shoulder seasons. In New England, it's the long slog till real spring arrives, beginning some time around March and ending as late as May. The air still holds a bite to it and grey, drizzly days are the norm. But sometimes, the sun surprises us - turning a gloomy afternoon into a glimmer of the season to come.
We put the Harrier Tee to the test in Arizona. Lou wore his for a 25-mile long run at sunrise. It was a classic spring run: starting cool in the low 50s and ending two hours later in the 60s. The Merino kept him warm at the start, and wicked sweat away once the sun peaked over the mountains. The soft fabrication ensured zero chafing, even over double digit mileage.
