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.
