Whooha Gear tank review

I'd read a product review of Whooha Gear on someone else's blog and they'd included a coupon code for 10% off your order so I decided to go check them out. If you were that blogger, feel free to give yourself a shout out in the comments, I'm sorry I can't remember who you were. The first thing I noticed on the website  was how reasonably priced they were. Hooray!  After checking out the variety of merch available I settled on the Miles To Go Racer Back Tank Top. I loved the color and the quote underneath the graphic:

"The woods are lovely dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep." - Robert Frost.

You definitely want to follow their size instructions listed below the item description.  I generally wear a small but bought this in a medium.  It was just the right size, still fitted to my frame but not tight.  I had originally planned to try the tank out earlier last week when it was 95 degrees out but because I saw that it was made from something like 98% cotton, I changed my mind. While the website does note that it is a cotton/spandex blend, it does not state the percentages which I think would be important if you're considering making this a regular tank to run in.  One of the most basic running attire rules is "thou shalt not wear cotton."

Anyways, I wore the tank on Friday for a short 3 mile run at work.  It was 76 and breezy, and the tank worked out well. I definitely need to cut the tag out of the neck, it was tickling me the whole time. The tank didn't ride up at all and had a nice length.  I'm really particular about the arm pit area, I hate anything that is cut in too close and might rub.  No such problem here, so two thumbs up!  The only other thing I noticed was that it was a little itchy while I ran.  This might be because I didn't wash it before I wore it, and a good washing might soften it up a bit more.  Or it just might be an itchy shirt, I'll find out on my next run.  Overall I'm happy that I bought it, the price alone made it worth it, I think it would be great for the gym or yoga, and I'll be working into my running gear rotation.

Got a new running product that you love/hate?  Tell me about it in the comments.  Coming soon, Amphipod handheld bottle review.
