The HVAC title is Brooks’ way of telling you their garment incorporates X-Static silver fibres, which in this case are generously distributed across the majority of the shirt. This technology, and the lightweight fabrics used, make this a suitable option for even the sunniest and most still conditions.
It’s very comfortable from the beginning with a cooling hit provided by the silver fibres. It also remains moisture free while running, with no adverse chafing.
An additional pocket at the side of the body is good for storage but one complaint would be its positioning: the shirt and pocket contents move freely here and tend to create an anchor point and constant distraction.
Your body remains cool but, due to the micromesh structure, perhaps too cool in windy conditions. Another drawback is the seam across the upper back. This is an irritant when walking or standing still, in particular just after exercise when your skin is moist.
