Designer Tim Soar’s running line, Soar, features regular updates from the cutting edge of technology. Fresh this season is a long-sleeve Tempo top (£125) in a new stretch fabric with a crepe-like quality, and Lycra to hold its shape. Dual-fabric tights (£110) have a compression fabric on the lower leg, while another gives the upper leg and body a bit more thermal insulation.
The Race vest (£57) is, Soar says, “crazy-light at 52g, and as close to running topless as you can get!”. And the fabric of the All Weather jacket (£225) is dyed at a very high temperature to shrink it, resulting in an extremely dense weave and making it water- and windproof without a cumbersome membrane.
