YMR Track Club: Back in Black

Last updated:

Is it really summer already? Anyway, running in a singlet and splits is definitely fun again. My new “little black dress” is from YMR Track Club – the “Swedish Tracksmith”. ;)

Sponsored Post: YMR Track Club provided me with the products for this review at my request. This had no influence on the content of my post. The article is written indipendently and reflects exclusively my personal experiences.


YMR Shinjuku Shorts Black

67 Euro
Time Frame
4 weeks

What at first glance looks like a normal, black split shorts, turns out to be a real luxory version of it.

The material is wonderfully soft and has a light waffle structure. It is made of recycled polyester, Oeko-Tex Class I certified and is processed in Sweden.

There is an inner slip that fits very comfortably because it is cut a little lower on the outside. The pocket in the back is inside the pants and relatively roomy. However, it is not closable.

I could stow my GoPro well in it while running. Only the access is not that easy – depending on how tightly the waistband is laced. But the Shinjuku Shorts are really comfortable and are a good companion, especially on hot days.


YMR Änggården Singlet

55 Euro
Time Frame
4 weeks

I decided to use a noble black for the singlet as well, although YMR again has other very nice colours in their range.

The material seems to be identical to the shorts – which is only right for me, because it is very comfortable on the skin. Due to the waffle structure the sweat is also absorbed very well.

The Änggården Singlet has a very good cut, but it does not fit athletically tight. I liked it very much to have a little more air in it.

Additional air floats through the very light material.

I have done quite a few runs with the combination of shorts and singlet over the last weeks and have to admit that I keep both right at the front of my drawer. Because of the cool design I not only like black running outfits again. The quality of the material and the cut convinced me that the still young brand from Sweden is a real insider tip.


YMR Track Club has delivered two wonderful pieces with the Änggården Singlet and the Shinjuku Shorts. Design, cut and quality are simply outstanding. The production is made in a traditional Swedish textile region with recycled and Oeko-Tex certified materials. Absolutely recommendable.

Hi! It’s me, the Harlerunner.

This is where Thomas Pier writes about running and (much more than just the necessary) equipment. I don't run particularly fast or far. But I like to share my experiences as an ambitious recreational runner, curious early-adopter and as my own trainer.

I am happy about every digital contacting - but even more so about every kilometer run together.
