Alo Review and Giveaway

I have been trying to be healthier lately, and watch what I eat and go for walks. I don't have many work out clothes (I just usually wear a t-shirt and some soffe shorts). I figured I needed to have some real work out clothes if I wanted to become serious about this lifestyle change. I was very pleased when I contacted Alo, and they agreed to let me review some work out clothes!

About Alo (taken from website)
Through the use of recycled and minimal impact materials, alo creates high performance activewear that delivers superb function, fit and style. With environmentally mindful design and production processes, our men's and women's collections utilize eco-friendly performance fabrics that provide outstanding comfort and results. Our most technically advanced Bamboo Jersey fabric has inherent properties that wick moisture and is naturally anti-bacterial, hypoallergenic and breathable with no added chemicals.

This is what I received from Alo:


The shirt is is called "Short Sleeve Mesh Back Tee" and the pants are the Mesh Inset Capri.

Shirt:
92% polyester 8% spandex knit jersey, peached for softness. Mesh panel at back and side seam for ventilation. Flatlock stitch on all seams. Bodymapping seams flatter the figure.

Pants:
90% nylon 10% spandex heavy weight jersey

Anatomically placed mesh insets provide ventilation. Ergonomic seaming flatters and enhances performance.


I really love these clothes. They are fitted, but not too tight. I don't like very baggy shirts and pants for working out in. They fit me very well and are made well too. They are very comfortable too. I know I will be using these from now on!

Giveaway Rules:
I will be picking 1 (1) winner to win a deep scoop tank top from Alo.
