TOG24 ACTIVEWEAR PUT TO THE TEST

By August 6, 2020 September 7th, 2020 No Comments

When it comes to activewear, we are spoilt for choice. There are plenty of brands offering activewear ranges which boast impressive features and the newest sportswear clothing technology, but how do they perform? I teamed up with TOG24 to put their activewear to the test, and these are the results.

All items on this blog post were gifted from the TOG24 activewear collection, all opinions are those of Steph, the creator of Destination Downtime.

HOW DID IT PERFOM?

Put to the test – 5k walk

The deep waistband on these leggings is one of my favourite features, the added support this provides is a personal must-have when buying a comfortable and flattering pair of leggings. The leggings remained in position when walking, they are a snug fit and contour the body which means that they don’t slip with movement.

The super soft fabric is just the right thickness for support without being too hot.

These leggings have a really handy little zip pocket on the rear waistband. This is ideal for storing a key in, perfect for when you are heading out for a run/walk, or to the gym and don’t want to worry about carrying any extra items.

The crew neck on this vest is really flattering, the fabric sits perfectly and the small vent on the back allows for a welcome breeze when walking.

One of my favourite features of this vest is the anti-chafe seams. I find that thicker fabrics can occasionally rub the skin around the armpit during intense workouts. This vest gives plenty of space to be able to move your arms freely, with no protruding seams and super soft fabric this vest is very comfortable.

The soft and lightweight fabric felt very breathable.

As you can see from the features this jacket boasts some impressive USPS and holds up well outdoors. It’s water repellent coating, waterproof zips and hood ensure you are kept dry when battling the elements. I particularly like that this jacket feels very lightweight and flexible, yet gives you all the necessary protect from the Great British weather.

I absolutely love the colour of this jacket, I very occasionally go for bright colours, playing it safe with neutrals. The colour of this jacket is gorgeous, the images provide a very realistic representation of the colour which is described as sangria.

The matte stretch fabric and back ventilation felt breathable and provided enough heat retention without being too hot.

The colour of this T-shirt is really pretty, I love nude and beige tones so this T-shirt really jumped out to me and I couldn’t wait to try it on.
