Tasc Performance Activewear Apparel Review
I was so excited when Tasc Performance recently reached out to me asking if I'd review a few items from their line. I looked through the designs and liked what I saw, and am even more happy after actually testing the products. Tasc's main focus is creating comfortable athletic clothing without the use of chemicals. They use ethically sourced bamboo from China and each product is hand checked for deficiencies. As soon as I received the clothes, I was taken with how soft and breathable they were.
I loved the look of the leggings Tasc offered. Ricky and I went camping this past weekend, and while we haven't had very cool weather in Long Beach lately, it was perfect weather to test out some of the Tasc leggings. I'm not a huge fan of running in leggings. I just overheat like crazy (it also never gets below 45° where I live so there's never much of an opportunity to wear them). It was going to be about 30-40° while we were up in Lake Arrowhead, so it was perfect weather. Here's a quick breakdown of each product I tested and what I thought:
Terrace Pocket Tights:
These tights are thick but so comfortable and soft (like all of the Tasc gear). They felt like butter when I put them on. Usually, when it's below 40° and I'm camping, I need two layers of pants on because my legs get so cold, but I didn't with the Terrace Pocket Tights. I wore these for about 12 hours the first day of our camping trip - we did a 2 mile hike, walked around the local shops in the nearby town, and hung out by the campfire. They're made from Tasc's MOSOember fabric, which is moisture-wicking and breathable. They were thick enough to keep me warm without causing me to overheat. They also have these large pockets on each side to hold your phone or keys while you're out and about.
My favorite thing about the Sprinter Tights is how lightweight they are. I did some strides in these and an easy run and loved how they stayed put on my waist, which is a hard thing to find in tights. The fit on these tights is very flattering, and it also offers moisture-wicking fabric. I love the unique design. Like a majority of Tasc's gear, the Sprinter Tights are UPF 50+ and anti-odor (the kind of clothing you want to bring on a camping trip in my opinion!). These tights also have a small waist pocket that's great for storing your keys when out on a run.
NOLA Racer Tank:
This tank was soft and long - for all of those with a long torso, this tank is for you! I love when my shirts can peek out under my top layer, so the length on this was great. I got this in a small, but I'd probably go down to an extra small since it ran a tad big. The blue color was fantastic and looked like a deep turquoise in the shade and a bright ocean blue in the sun.
I had to keep touching my leg during my run with the Challenge Shorts because it felt like I wasn't wearing anything! The waistband is thick and stays put - no rising or falling while you're running. The inseam is 3", and if there was anything I would change, it would be to make them a tad shorter but that's just my style (I like short shorts!). These also came with a huge side pocket that could hold a large iPhone and kept my keys while I was running. Since I don't run with an arm band and hate wearing a belt, the little pockets on all of Tasc's gear was a great addition for me. I had a place to keep my keys rather than sticking them in my sports bra (say goodbye to chaffing!). The shorts have an inner liner that is made of moisture-wicking, anti-odor material to keep you dry and fresh where it matters most!
Again, the softness of the fabric and how light the Sprinter T was made me fall in love. The design was beautiful with a mesh strip on both shoulders and a single line running down the back. I often prefer wearing tanks because I run hot, but I barely noticed this while I was running. I usually wear a small in shirts, but sized up in this one and it fit perfectly.
I was very pleased with the Tasc Performance apparel and would highly recommend checking them out if you're interested in soft, breathable, chemical-free activewear clothing to run, or camp, or even just lounge in! I will definitely be rocking their leggings all winter long, as soon as the weather cools down in So Cal!
