Ronhill Women’s Trail Zip Tee review

Last updated: 17-Aug-18

By Alice Morrison

I do a lot of running in the mountains and desert areas in Morocco where Ts are much more acceptable than vests so was excited to try out this new Ronhill product.

PROS: What’s good about the Ronhill Women’s Trail Zip Tee

The first impression this Tee made on me was how light and breathable the fabric was. It is Vapourlite and it really did a good job on the wicking and breathability factors.

It was hot while I was running and the mesh panels on the side made quite a difference in cooling me down too.

Very good attention to details with a nice little sleeve pocket and the grippers on the shoulders for if you are wearing a pack or hydration pack.

The flat-locked seams meant there was no bunching up.

I always like it when there is a cover for the neck zip to avoid chafing and the zip length was good on the chest.

CONS: What’s not so good about the Ronhill Women’s Trail Zip Tee

I really liked this Tee but my one criticism would be that it could be a tad longer on the back. It didn’t ride up when I was running, so my lower back was never exposed but ideally I would have liked it to come down further.

CONCLUSION

A very good, lightweight Tee. Comfortable to wear and excellent for keeping the body cool. I liked the added features and the way it looked. The fabric did what it said on the tin and had good wicking qualities.
