We were two blokes with a running problem. Many big name sports brands hail from Europe or the United States and make decent running gear for cool, dry conditions. For us in tropical Hong Kong, however, not so great.
For six months a year, it averages 30C and 85% humidity here, so sweat just doesn't have that evaporative cooling effect. We need running gear that is crazy lightweight for minimal heat insulation, extra wicking and quick drying, plus super breathable for maximum air flow.
That's our goal here at T8: ultralight, supercool, chafe-free. Human ingenuity to help you beat the toughest conditions #mindovermountain. Here in Hong Kong, this means Category 8 Typhoons, but our T8 gear is also great for everyday casual wear.
Mark and I like to run loo-oong. As ultra trail runners, we are fortunate to have raced all over the world - including UTMB, UTMF and even the 298km Hong Kong 4 Trails Ultra Challenge - and this gives us a great chance to chew over equipment ideas and put our gear through the wringer.
Most kit won't turn feral on you in the first 10 kilometres. It's only after an all-nighter or dripping in sweat for the past 15 hours that you really know. Every T8 product has been extensively tested by us and our awesome beta testing crew on ultra runs in the toughest conditions. If it works for us, we guarantee it'll work for you and help you #runhigherlonger.
