T8's Story - Discover Our Mission and Where it all Began in Hong Kong


Some like it hot - well sort of...


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.


* We call it #typhoonwear but obviously don't recommend that you go running in a T8. Keep it safe, team!

Sherpas are designed with no inner liner so pair with our T8 Commandos women's running underwear for a super comfy, guaranteed chafe-free experience.


Please note:

  1. See the size graphic right / below. We use Asian sizing, which can be up to half a size smaller than western sizing. Smaller runners with large quads or looking for a more comfortable fit should consider going up half a size.
  2. We recommend tying the drawstring for minimum bounce. Two sided slits allow it to be tied inside or outside the waistband.


* While colloquially known as elite mountaineer guides, Sherpas are more accurately a major ethnic group in the eastern regions of Nepal. We believe in giving back so 1% of gross profits from Sherpa Shorts sales will be donated to the Himalayan Trust Nepal to support their fabulous work. HTN was established in 1960 by Sir Edmund Hillary and provides holistic community-led sustainable development in the Solukhumbu district, with a particular focus on healthcare, education and earthquake rebuilding.
