Patagonia Baggies Shorts 5"
This prouduct is amazing, very durable, and super cute. I wear these for everything, swim trunks, running, biking, everyday wear, and on long canoe trips. Full review
Arctic Lynx Maternity Activewear Midweight Leggings
These leggings are stylish, but more importantly are comfortable and functional during physical activity while pregnant. They are able to grow with you as you grow, without being too tight on the belly region. This product is best for comfort, functionality, and temperature regulation during physical activity both indoors and in moderate outdoor temperatures when worn as a single layer. I would recommend them to any active mother during pregnancy, especially runners, skiers, snowshoers, hikers,… Full review
Ronhill Trackster Classic
The iconic product, which still works, after all these years. Super-light, stretchy, tough, comfy, versatile, and easy to care for. Extensively copied, but still relevant. Ron Hill was an English long-distance runner, in an era when all athletes wore cotton. Best known, to US readers, as the first British winner of the Boston Marathon (1970), he pioneered carbo loading, redesigned shoes and clothing, and used his academic background as a Textile Chemist to shift the entire paradigm of sportswear,… Full review
Patagonia Dirt Craft Bike Shorts
Patagonia's Dirt Craft Bike Shorts are a lightweight, breathable mountain bike short for everyday riding on the singletrack. Made with a nylon/spandex outer short for full range of movement and a removable inner padded liner, they're soft, stretchy, don't chafe, and are super comfortable whether climbing or descending. I've worn my Dirt Craft Bike Shorts for two seasons of riding—cross-county, enduro, and lift-assisted—and have found them incredibly comfortable for long days of riding and reasonably… Full review
Blyss Running Trail Skirt
The Trail Skirt from Blyss Running is a comfortable running skirt that provides both plenty of coverage and room to move on the trails. This skirt makes me happy for two major reasons—no chafing and ample pockets. Made in the USA, primarily out of recycled fabric, the Trail Skirt can easily fit my iPhone in either of the two thigh pockets or in the zippered back waist pocket (though I use that for an EpiPen). This capacity means I can go out for shorter summer runs carrying both a phone and an… Full review
Ridge Merino Crowley Tights
Ridge Merino's Crowley Tights are a highly compressive, warm, and durable running tight for women. Made from a nylon-spandex-merino wool blend, they offer the best of synthetics (stretch and durability) with merino wool (comfort and odor control) for cold-weather active pursuits. I've been wearing the Crowley Tights for running during Maine winters and find them most comfortable in temps below freezing. These tights are...tight, so if you're not looking for a lot of compression consider sizing up. Full review
Patagonia Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts
The Patagonia women's Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts pack a host of straightforward, well thought out features into a simple pair of shorts. The material and seams stretch together, offering an unrestricted range of motion, and the lightweight fabric wicks moisture, repels water, and dries rapidly. They were hands down my favorite shorts to ride in this past season. Testing Conditions: I tested the Patagonia women’s Dirt Roamer Bike Shorts as a member of the Trailspace Review Corps. I wore the shorts… Full review
Patagonia Endless Ride Liner Shorts
The Patagonia Women’s Endless Ride Liner Shorts are a straightforward padded liner designed specifically for mountain biking. My personal litmus test when it comes to outdoor gear is whether or not I notice it when I’m out on the trail. I want my gear to fade into the background so I can focus on riding. This liner passes with flying colors. It stays in place, provides unrestricted movement, and vents moisture—keeping me comfortable while my body gets worked (...scraped, bruised) and enjoys… Full review
