Product Review – Asics top and shorts

A few weeks ago I received an email from Andrew Jackson from Millet Sports asking if I would like to review some new running gear. I’m always happy to try new gear out so was happy to accept.

I chose a long sleeved seamless top and 7′ running shorts.

Asics Gear

As soon as I opened the package and tried it on Katrina’s first comment was, ‘you could wear that as a casual top’ so that was a good start.

The top is really comfortable and very light. The first time I wore it I was heading up to the Gleniffer Braes for an 11 mile off road run. It was quite cold and windy so I took a jacket in my bag and I expected to need it.

I was quite surprised that the top kept out all the wind and I didn’t need my jacket. It rained for a while but the top very quickly absorbed the rain and it was dry again.

I’ve worn the top a few times now and I have found really comfortable to run in. It is a good fit but with enough room for movement. I haven’t had any issues with chaffing or rubbing which is a key factor in a running top for me.

Here are the details of the top ….

I like slightly longer shorts especially for my longer ultra runs so these are ideal. The shorts are very light and comfortable to wear and more importantly to run in. There is a very small zipped pocket which fits a key.

The shorts I chose didn’t have side pockets which I prefer but maybe other models do have pockets.  They are now firmly in my running shorts drawer and I’ll be wearing them regularly from now on.
