While some shirts may be running or biking-specific, I’d say the GoLite Wildwood Trail Run Top is actually quite adept at either. The Wildwood Trail Run Top is lightweight and breathable but just how well does it perform for trail running and mountain biking? After several months of use, lets get down to it.

GoLite Wildwood Trail Run Top Review
With several similar tops in my repertoire, the Wildwood fit right in. What makes this shirt different is that the fabric isn’t obviously porous. The fabric is slick and soft to the touch and feels comfortable next to the skin.
I decided on the size large so it wouldn’t be too tight, but I could have opted for the medium. As it was, the large was better-suited for all-around activity: running, trail running and mountain biking. While the weather hasn’t gotten too warm around here just yet, the Wildwood does seem to breathe well. I think a slightly more porous material would breathe a titch better, but it’s still very breathable.
The only really annoying thing is the location of the tags. They are on the left side of the shirt just high enough to scratch ymyour bare skin above the waistline of my shorts. I’m ready to take the scissors to them at this point.
- Very comfortable to wear
- Versatile enough for running or mountain biking (or any outdoor activity, really)
- Good pricepoint
- Go 100% tagless… please! These tags are highly annoying
- Chest logo could be a little more subtle
Bottom Line: GoLite Wildwood Trail Run Top
The Wildwood is an economical, lightweight and comfortable active outdoorsy top for warm weather conditions. It has worn well and performs admirably under pressure.
