Who loves new workout clothes?
Exactly, everyone does. Tom may complain about my overflowing drawers but it still seems like no matter how much gear I have, it’s never enough. So when I was approached by Superdry to test out some of their sport clothing, I was all in.
I always associated SuperDry with winter coats but perusing their website, they actually have a full clothing line and their sport line is full of great active wear from sports bras to leggings to hoodies. Narrowing down what I wanted to test out was tricky but I ultimately decided on the Gym Running Zip Hoodie and the Gym Running Leggings. Typical runner choices.
My first impression of the clothing was that it was very high quality. The leggings don’t have the slightest bit of sheerness so I didn’t have to fear showing the goods off during a downward dog. They are supportive yet breathable and most importantly, stay put during a run. My favourite feature is the huge zipper pocket in the back. You can fit an iPhone plus multiple gels in that pocket. A huge bonus for runners!
The hoodie was also great quality. It’s double layered and so cozy that it definitely keeps you warm on winter runs. It has a double flat zipper with reflective panneling to keep you visible in the dark. Not that I run in the dark, way too chicken for that! There are thumbholes, which are a must on any hoodie of mine and it also has a large back zippered pocket. The only con I found to the hoodie was that the hood is quite heavy and bounces a bit when running. Although, it would definitely protect you from the elements if you need to pull it up during wind or snow conditions.
The one dislike I have of the superdry sport line is that the branding is very heavy on the clothing. I like workout clothing that can be transitioned from gym to streetwear and I feel that these pieces wouldn’t fit my street style due to the branding. However, I think they are high quality workout pieces that are definitely worth adding to your ever growing workout collection. I’m certain I will add more to mine.
