Ashmei product review

We recently started stocking Ashmei performance clothing, so I decided to treat myself to some decent new kit for some long runs I was planning on doing. I chose the Ashmei jersey short sleeve and 2-in-1 short.

The first impact was that my wife thought I looked smart for a change as I went out running! Not that my appearance was my primary concern, but this kit does look smart in a subtly sophisticated way.

The top has a half zip which can be opened from either end for extra ventilation. There's a pair of pockets on the back (one zipped, one open), ideal for a gel or key. There's an additional small zipped pocket on the shoulder, which could be used for a small mp3 player or key.

The top is made from a merino wool/ carbon mix, which is designed to give good temperature control and moisture management. I must say that the comfort and fit were excellent. The other benefit that my wife noticed on my return from running is that the fabric has a natural anti-odour property, which means that you don't get the characteristic hum of sweaty kit!

The 2-in-1 shorts were equally impressive. The semi-compression fit inner short was a great fit and felt really supportive. The outer, baggy short was really light and breathable and had a larger than average rear zip pocket (big enough for even larger phones and certainly more than roomy enough for a few gels). I've now worn this kit on several long runs, including a 30 mile ultra and I have to say I have no criticisms.

The quality is excellent and, although it's not cheap, I think its good value.
