You can’t do much better in quality than Tracksmith. Their clothes are stylish with a classic look and they will wear well over time. The Session Collection embodies everything that Tracksmith stands for. These clothes are everyday training staples that are versatile in providing great performance gear that’s actually comfy enough to wear all day.
The Session Tights in the charcoal color are a great option for any runner’s closet. They are meant for everyday training and can be worn time and again. Tracksmith worked with Italian knitmasters to prepare their Veloce Blend for bodywear and this is the result .. material that feels soft to the touch, sturdy, stretchy, and flattering when it’s on. The tights honestly feel different than any of the others I’ve tried and trust me when I say that’s A LOT over the years. These feature UV-Protective fabric and they are cozy without being hot, if that makes sense.
The tights are a mid-rise length, and they hit me right at belly button level with my long torso and short legs. There is a wide flat band across the top with a double stitch to help keep them in place. I got them in a size large to accommodate my large hips and thighs. There’s a hidden hip pocket that has a secure zipper that will help hold a key or a GU, as well as a pocket in the back that will fit most phones. My phone has an Otterbox cover that makes it huge and it barely fits, but most tights can’t accommodate it at all so the pocket on these tights is a win.
Up next to try was the Session Tee, where “comfort meets performance.” The shirt is a nice relaxed fit and the materials are meant to wick away moisture efficiently. It also receives a polygiene odor-repelling treatment before it comes to you, which is a real plus for this sweaty runner.
The tee arrived in my true-to-size medium in my favorite color which is a bit of a teal, (called “sage brush”) and it has a slightly heathered look. It’s a good length, hitting me again around the belly button, which is great because many shirts are either a bit too long or more of a crop style. The Session shirt has ample room in the shoulders and neck without being boxy or hitting in weird places.
I’m loving my new Tracksmith gear and I especially love the multifunctional aspects or it. The day I slipped on the Tracksmith Session Tee and Tights for the first time, I went to see clients at the gym, got a massage, and then went on a run before changing. I felt really comfy for all of the activities. Tracksmith for the win!!
