New Running Kit

The good people of Simply Sweat kitted me out in some super new running kit this week. I ordered online late on Thursday night and was impressed to recieve the kit on Saturday morning, which meant I could give it a good test on my long run on Sunday. The Website's clear and easy to get around and is stocked with all the leading brands you'd expect at very competitive prices. A nice touch is that you get the chance to view some products on a short 'catwalk' clip which I found really useful.

With the warm weather upon us I got myself a Vest, Shorts and new socks.

Ronhill Advance Running Vest - Indigo and Slate - £16.45

Product Info: This lightweight and breathable running vest has excellent moisture management, drawing moisture away from your body and once at the outer surface it evaporates, keeping you cool and dry on your run. In a relaxed fit with UPF 50 protection its great for hot sunny days.

Vapourlite fabric: 100% Polyester
UPF50 protection

This done exactly what it said on the tin, very lightweight and comfortable, at times the top was completley sodden and the next dried out.

  1. Are you on commission? Ha ha!
    I bought 1000 mile socks a few years ago and they shrunk so much in the first wash I couldn't wear them again, although strangely I still have them ! Note to self - clean out sock drawer.
