(The Gear Loop) - Cast an eye over Scott Sport’s latest trail running clothing collection and you’d be forgiven for thinking the Swiss are made of stronger stuff than us.

Comprising women’s tank tops, compression shorts, sun visors and trail packs, it appears that the company is happy to run all year round in skimpy garments - or perhaps it hopes keen runners will stock up in time for balmier climes come springtime.

Designed to work on everything, from "smooth trails to alpine ridges", the latest collection is made from light and quick-drying fabrics, while most items boast safety pockets to ensure essentials are stowed without worry.

Some of the standout items include the men’s Trail Shorts, with a built-in liner for comfort and quick dry fabric on the outer, as well as a handy Explorair Light Windbreaker Jacket offering a water-repellent PFC-free treatment for running in all weather.

Scott’s Trail Kinabalu TR 20 Pack offers a great stowage solution for longer runs, with a waterproof back pocket offering a great place to stash dry kit or important items.

The women’s line features a breathable tank top, lightweight trail shorts with a hidden inside back pocket to store small items, full tights with compression fabrics and sun visors, should you get lucky enough to run in pure sunshine.

The technical clothing joins Scott’s latest range of trail running shoes, including the Kinabalu 2, which we’ve reviewed, and the Supertrac 3 - most of which come in full waterproof versions for tackling the worst terrain.
