Giveaway is now CLOSED!!! if you would like more info on Runnr.Co and what they’re about please visit their website.
Everyone used to call me gams in my mid-twenties. Reason being – I’ve got some awesome legs. Don’t all of us runners want to showcase that underneath all that sweaty gear we have awesome legs??
Jennifer had warned me that their shirts ran large (it’s something that they’re currently looking into) so I got the smallest size available, a small. It was still really big. Aside from the sizing the shirts performed really well from a technical viewpoint.
The above is a size comparison between another dye sublimation tech shirt. It’s a medium, which is the same as a Nike small. So if you’re a medium get a small in a Runnr.co shirt.
Here are the specs: [from their website]
Women’s Short Sleeve Race Tee. Printed on sweatvac technical race tees designed to provide extreme comfort and superior wicking capabilities. Soon to be your favorite workout shirt.
- Made from DriSmart technical fabric
- Silky-soft interior
- Flat-seam construction for no rub comfort
- Micro-textured exterior for superior moisture evaporation
- Ultra-thin fabric
- Retail for $20
- Sizes S-L
- Gray Colour only.
What I liked:
- Loved their designs. I think the few that they have are clever and that because they’re a relatively new company we can expect more in the very near future.
- performed well as a technical shirt in both running and cycling workouts.
- Love and prefer shirts done using the dye sublimation process (where the dye does not disrupt fabrics ability to wick away moisture)
- wicked away sweat and still allowed my skin to breathe during workouts
- comfortable and stylish.
- designs for males and females
- felt seamless and nothing rubbed on me while running on the treadmill.
Runnr.co shirt on the left, another tech shirt on the right. Notice the flat sewn seam on the #gams shirt. It’s actually comparable to a Nike tech tee, the material is just as soft as well.
What I didn’t love:
- the sizing. it’s way too big. I’m normally a small or a medium in shirts and their small shirt is very roomy.
- the gray colour on most of their shirts doesn’t flatter a lot of complexions.
The Bottom Line:
The shirt works for its purpose. Their designs are cute, clever and fun! If you like a larger fit or have issues finding your size with other companies this shirt is for you. However, if you’re a small person these shirts will swallow you whole. However, sizing is being addressed for future products so we can still look forward to Runnr.co‘s quirky designs. Sweatvac is definitely an accurate name – these shirts suck up sweat and kept me dry during my in door workouts all while proving to be extremely comfortable.
* It should be noted that when I spoke with Jennifer from Runnr.co about the sizing issue it is already something that is being addressed. If anyone has a shirt company that wants to partner with their amazing design team, who also using dye sublimation please contact me and I’ll put you in touch with this awesome new company.
Runnr.co was nice enough to offer one lucky reader a shirt of their own! They have male and female designs and even though I knocked their sizing the shirts are still stylish and fun!
Here are a few of their designs and if you want to see more check them out for yourself!
