Zoot nails the must-have basics with this suit: plenty of storage (two pockets in the shorts and three in the top), high-end, close-fitting fabric that doesn’t chafe, and great ventilation technology on the back of the top. The front zipper comes down to mid-chest, which is perfect for staying cool on the run. Those who prefer slightly longer shorts will appreciate the 9-inch length option as it provides plenty of coverage. There’s nothing particularly noteworthy about the technology used to make the kit (as opposed to several others on this list), but it’s a solid option at a very reasonable price point.
