In a city as humid as ours, moisture wicking technology in athletic clothing is as welcome as air-conditioning. Here are some of the top products to help you stay dry in or out of the gym.

Women

Lucy Worth The Weights Long Sleeve

If your gym goals include not showing everyone your “under construction” biceps and not looking like a sweaty mess after you lift, this long-sleeved performance top is for you. Featuring a built-in sports bra and flowing silhouette, it’s equal parts style and substance. 

Lululemon In the Flow Crop II

These comfy pants combat sweat using a three-pronged approach: a wide waistband, sweat-wicking fabric, and what the company calls “anti-stink technology.” Pants, 1; sweat, 0.

Asics Gel-Noosa Tri 9

Triathlon shoes, or sweet 1990s rave kicks? You don’t have to choose with this Asics sneaker, which comes in an array of bright colors. Offering open mesh construction and a perforated sock bed, this shoe will help keep your feet dry on long runs. 

Men

The Nike Legend Dri-Fit Training T-Shirt

This is the garment for summer, a shirt somehow capable of wicking sweat away from your skin and letting it evaporate from the shirt’s surface without drenching the fabric. Whether at the gym or your boss’s backyard barbecue, you’ll be looking and feeling good. 

Climacool® Boxer Briefs from ADIDAS

What you’re wearing underneath is important, too. Enter these babies from ADIDAS, designed to keep you cool and dry.
