precious metal

Of all metals, silver conducts heat the fastest, drawing it away from the body when you're hot and reflecting it back at you when you're cold. It also thwarts odors by binding to bacteria found in sweat and stopping it from growing. We picked our favorites from the latest styles to hit the market.

High and Dry

We love the adjustable straps on the 6 percent silver Brooks HVAC Seamless Bra ($54, brooksrunning.com). Pair it with CWX Silver Streaked Insulator Expert tights ($95, CW-X). And keep feet sweet with these silver-embedded Brooks Trance 5 running shoes ($135, Brooks Running).

Squeeze Play

The extra-snug fit of the Adidas adiStar Shimmel tank bra gives great support, and its 5 percent silver thread fabric keeps you as comfortable as you could possibly be while working your butt off ($50, Adidas).

Power Peds

Pull on a pair of these cotton/silver-blend Pearl Izumi X-Static Racing Socks and you'll be in good company: U.S. soldiers in Iraq wear similar ones to keep their feet from stinking up the barracks ($12, Pearl Izumi).

Prep Squad

Cheery colors make these silky-soft Hot Chillys Salsa Seamless Contour Capris a sight for sore thighs, and their silver/nylon-blend fabric keeps them smelling as fresh as they look ($35, Hot Chillys).

Just for Kicks

With mesh panels for water drainage, a sole with extra gripping power, and anbtimicrobial silver threads in the sock liner, these Salomon TechAmphibian sneakers keep feet dry, cool, and odor-free ($80, Salomon Outdoor).

Cover Story

Ideal for multiday camping trips, the Mountain Hardwear Extend featherweight Vneck top is made of microfiber polyester embedded with silver ions ($40, Mountain Hardwear).
