iRun Athletic Wear Shirt: Product Review
August 16, 2011
So I was delighted to try out a t-shirt, hoodie and skights set of iRun Athletic Wear. Unfortunately the temperatures have been too high for the hoodie and skights, but today I took the shirt for a test run!
The fit of the iRun Athletic Wear shirt: loose but not baggy
The t-shirt is less fitted than the running shirts I normally wear, but I loved the feel of cool, fresh air against my skin. I may have to change my opinion about shirts with a looser fit!
Another advantage of a slightly looser fit, is that your shirt won't ride up. And the people of iRun Athletic Wear got it just right with this shirt: not so fitted it will ride up, but not so loose it looks baggy.
So when it comes to comfort during a run, I give this shirt an A!
On looks, I give it a B: the sleeves are quite loose, which feels lovely, but also made me feel a bit 'mannish'.
Nice little logo: I run
I'm not a fan of logos on my shirts, but the iRun Athletic Wear logo is cute, girly and inspirational. That was actually a pleasant surprise to me! I was having a hard time, and I started to walk a little bit, but then I looked down at my shirt and saw the little logo saying: 'I run!'
'Can't let my shirt down!' I thought, and trot off again!
It's not very sexy to say this, but I'm a real Sweaty Betty during my runs. Almost all my shirts show big wet patches beneath my armpits when I run. But, the black iRun Athletic Wear shirt didn't! As far as my shirt went, I could have been taking a leisurely Sunday stroll. This, to me, is a great selling point!
To sum up
You can't go wrong with the black iRun Athletic Wear shirt: it's a great and comfortable fit, it's neutral, it wicks away your sweat and it's got an inspirational logo.
The only downside to me, is that it's not very feminine. I look like a bloke!
The best news is that this shirt only costs $9.99, which is a real bargain considering the prizes I usually have to pay for a running shirt.
I wear a size M in my everyday clothes, and this shirt was a size M too, and fit just fine.
You can admire and buy it at iRun Athletic Wear!
How do you like to wear your running shirts: tight, loose or even baggy?!
Stay tuned for my reviews of the iRun Athletic Wear hoodie and skights!
