It’s cold. It’s winter. It’s the time when indoor training takes over the cycling miles and we seek warmth at the gym or at home.
Just like cycling, we want to look and feel good whatever we do and gym kit is no exception. Now with a variety of technical fabrics and performance enhancing science, fitness apparel is booming and the variety has never been wider.
Fitness clothing brand, 2XU (Two Times You), certainly knows a thing or two about performance wear. The Austrailian brand launched back in 2005 and has since become famed for their use of quality compression fabrics. So with indoor training well underway, I’ve been trying out the new compression three-quarter tights and long-sleeve fitness top.
Engineered Long Sleeve Top
What do you want for a fitness top? Ideally, something that moves with the body without being restrictive, breathable, lightweight and attractive.
2XU’s Engineered long-sleeve top is wonderfully simple and elegant. It’s stretchy, it has a flattering feminine cut whilst remaining loose on the body and it’s been treated with an anti-bacterial coating to help reduce body odour.
The way in which the fabric has been sown is intricate enough that it reduces seams throughout the garment so there’s minimal irritation, rubbing or puckering of the material. What’s more is that the tri-blend grey and discrete branding on the top allows this to easily cross over from the gym into casual wear too!
