The Run Oregon Wardrobe: Cotopaxi Quito Active Tee

We are big fans of Cotopaxi here at Run Oregon. We have reviewed a variety of their items – from workout gear and socks to jackets, sweaters, and packs. They continually put out really solid outdoor and running gear, all while staying true to a commitment to social impact. We can get behind that.

They just recently released their 2018 Activewear Collection – a very colorful assemblage of tops of bottoms for those looking to get outside. We were sent probably the most “basic” of this group – the Quito Active Shirt. I was sent their “Grass” color – a light green that is probably the most flashy color this shirt is made in. There are six total colors:

  • Sky
  • Shark (grey)
  • Fiery Red
  • Raven (black)
  • True Blue / Powder heather – my favorite look
  • Grass

I found that this fit pretty true to size – almost exactly what I like my fits to be. It was tight enough not hang off of me, but still loose enough that I didn’t feel constricted. While I’m relatively easy to please with most running gear, if I could clone this fit for all my running shirts, I would do so. It’s also incredibly soft and light and with the addition of seamless armholes (no chafing), this is such a great shirt to hit the trails, treadmill, or gym in. It just fits in with whatever activity you are in line for. I think it could actually be worn even as a casual top. I actually wore it around town a few times before I actually pulled the trigger on wearing it to workout, because it just looked and fit so nicely I didn’t want to subject it to my sweat!

The shirt has the following features:

  • Drirelease fabric
  • Seamless armholes
  • Athletic fit
  • Super-soft, breathable fabric
  • Reflective logos

Tech Specs:

  • 83% polyester, 11% TENCEL®, 6% spandex
