Recent Running Clothing Reviews

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Don’t believe in advertising. I feel painful when I wear sock on the road that full of rock. Terrible product. Terrible. I feel I‘ve been ripped off. Full review

Patagonia Tropic Comfort Hoody II

rated 5 of 5 stars No sunscreen and I'm all good in my Patagonia Tropic Comfort Hoody II. This versatile shirt allows me to leave behind sunscreen, hat, buff, and gloves and still be protected from the elements. In the future, all outdoors people will wear this shirt. :) I don't like to use sunscreen while hiking or backpacking because I don't like to carry it nor the greasy feeling of wearing it. About two years ago I found the Patagonia Tropic Comfort Hoody II. I believe that the shirt was designed for fly fishermen… Full review

Patagonia Men's Houdini Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, packable, and all so versatile, the Patagonia Houdini is an excellent wind jacket and perhaps a little bit more. I use the jacket as it was intended, as a wind jacket. But it is one of those go anywhere pieces of gear because it is so packable and weighs only 3.6 ounces. It folds into its own pocket and ends up being smaller than a can of soda. The fit is a slim athletic fit. The hood is adjustable and the cuffs have elastic to ensure a snug fit. The jacket does a decent job of remaining… Full review

Columbia Terminal Tackle Hoodie

rated 5 of 5 stars A great quick dry and sun-protection shirt! A great fishing, boating, and campwear top! Loose fitting. Front handwarmer pocket is great on a chilly morning, or for gloves, hats etc. Ideal for multi-day rafting trips! Full review

The Elixir UV Arm Sleeves

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Arm covers to protect you from the sun. Sun protection using lightweight arm sleeves that have numerous color choices. In the hot summer, a long sleeved shirt may make you feel too warm. While wearing a short sleeve shirt, the arm covers prevent sunburn and help keep your arms cool. In the shade, take them off it you want. They compress to a baseball size. I have another pair from a bike gear company that costs $30+ and liked them a lot. I looked online and found lots of black ones that seemed they… Full review

Outdoor Research ActiveIce Chroma Sun Gloves

rated 4 of 5 stars Sun protection for hands, with reinforced palms. I got these gloves after trying out the regular OR ActiveIce Spectrum sun gloves, finding them very good at their intended purpose as an alternative to applying sunblock to protect busy hands from harsh sun. However, I wondered about their durability with heavy use. This Chroma model improves on that score with reinforced palms, and stretch-adjustable wrist straps. These features help with grip/stability (and hopefully wear) when using tools like… Full review

Outdoor Research ActiveIce Spectrum Sun Gloves

rated 5 of 5 stars Straightforward sun and friction protection. These OR gloves are more durable and (slightly) less expensive than the competition. They do fall apart after heavy/use and abuse (2 months of hiking everyday, with trekking poles), but that is expected from a lightweight material. 10/10 Would recommend (over other brands) for someone looking for sun protection for their hands—though I do not consider these "essential." I used these sun gloves for two months while hiking through the 700-mile desert… Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Felt cheated, I must say. This is not a material as advertised. It did not take maybe 10-15 km of pure walking and both socks were damaged in the totally same spot actually hurting my feet as I did not expect them to go off that quickly so I did not notice that I actually walk barefoot. Do save your money. Full review

Swiss Barefoot Company Free Your Feet (Classic Swiss)

rated 2 of 5 stars Over-rated, over-sold, and bad customer service. These socks were a present and the gifter is extremely disappointed by the result. The toes sleeves are the exact same length which means none of the toes fit properly. The big toe sleeve is very narrow so it barely fits on the actual toe. The material is much weaker than advertised and visible damage ocurred after a single trail run. The grip dots fell off from just walking in a living room with floorboards. The company is trying to ride the minimal… Full review
