    The Best Fabrics For a Comfortable Running

    Using technical fabrics to keep dry and comfortable can make all the difference to your run whether you're running your first 5k or marathon.
    So it’s important to invest in technical clothing that is both sweat-wicking and breathable. Instead of trapping the moisture next to your skin, these fabrics move it away, allowing it to sit on the outside of the fabric, to evaporate, minimising chaffing and maximising your comfort.

    When looking for workout clothes, you generally want to consider two main factors: Moisture management and breathability. Feel and fit are important, too, but when it comes to the actual fabric of exercise apparel, it's good to know how sweat and hot air affect the clothes.

    Moisture management refers to what the fabric does when it becomes damp or wet. For example, if the fabric resists absorption, it's considered moisture-wicking. If it becomes heavy and wet, it's absorptive (not what you want).

    Breathability refers to how easily air moves through the fabric. Breathable fabrics allow hot air to escape, while tighter-knit fabrics keep warm air close to your body. The former is ideal for warm weather, while the latter is ideal for cooler temperatures.

    What Fabric Should I Look For?
    Synthetic fabrics have taken the lead in recent years in activewear for their superior ability to keep you dry and comfortable, whatever the weather, but there are some natural alternatives too.

    When to wear it: pretty much for any type of workout and in any type of weather.

    Polyester is the workhorse of fitness fabrics. You'll find it in almost everything you pick up at an athletic wear store, and logically so. Polyester is incredibly durable, wrinkle-resistant and moisture-wicking. It's also breathable and lightweight, so your sweat evaporates through the fabric and you'll stay relatively dry.

    Despite its lightness, polyester is actually a pretty great insulator, which is why many brands use it in cold-weather workout clothes in addition to tanks, tees and shorts.

    Polyester's one big drawback: Synthetic fabrics like polyester can foster bacteria and fungi growth, and they hold onto odors. So be sure to wash polyester workout clothes soon after breaking a sweat in them -- don't let a sweaty T-shirt sit crumpled in your hamper for long.

    When to wear it: when you're exercising outside in sleet, rain, snow or high humidity.

    Polypropylene is a type of plastic, and polypropylene fabric is basically a thin, flexible form of that plastic. It's almost entirely waterproof, so it makes for a great base or outer layer. It's used in rain jackets, sports undergarments, skin-tight base layers and socks.

    Like polyester, polypropylene is very durable and wrinkle-resistant. It'll keep you dry when exercising in humid, misty conditions and it'll help keep you warm when exercising outdoors in the cold.

    When to wear it: generally all workouts and weather conditions.

    Another very common fabric -- perhaps most known for its use in pantyhose -- nylon is soft, mold- and mildew-resistant and stretchy. It flexes with you as you move and has great recovery, meaning it returns to pre-stretched shape and size.

    Nylon also has a fantastic tendency to wick sweat from your skin and through the fabric to the outer layer where it can evaporate. You'll find nylon in nearly everything, including sports bras, performance underwear, tank tops, T-shirts, shorts, leggings and cold-weather sportswear.

    When to wear it: during workouts with a high range of motion, such as yoga and weightlifting.

    You may know spandex by the brand name Lycra. It's extremely flexible and stretchy, making it great for people who do workouts that require a large range of motion, such as yoga and weightlifting. This synthetic fabric is found primarily in skin-tight clothing, such as track shorts, leggings and sports bras. You'll also find spandex in socks, boxer briefs and looser garments in smaller amounts.

    Spandex isn't the best at wicking moisture and it isn't the most breathable (although it's decent at both), but those aren't meant to be the key benefits of this fabric: Spandex stretches up to eight times its usual size, offering unrestricted, comfortable motion in all movement patterns. Note that spandex can lose its stretch if you toss it in the dryer or iron it too often -- wash on cold and air dry to give your spandex garments a long life.

    Bamboo - Bamboo is a great eco-friendly alternative to synthetic fibres and is naturally sweat-wicking, anti-bacterial, and incredibly soft.

    Wool - Merino wool in particular is ideal for both hot and cold weather running as it is temperature regulating, extremely breathable, sweat-wicking, and anti-bacterial. It’s often combined with synthetic fibres such as spandex to give it a more fitted shape. It’s also incredibly lightweight.

    Cotton - Be aware of cotton; it is not the optimum fabric for running. Not only does it absorb the moisture, it traps it against your skin, making you feel damp and hot as you sweat.
