Champion Review and Giveaway–For Men & Women!

Champion sent me a couple of their new products to try out, the Double Dry Ultimate All-Weather Soft-Shell Women’s Jacket and the Double Dry+ Sprint Women’s Shorts. I think Champion makes a high quality and affordable product. I have a ton of their stuff from running skirts to yoga pants.

Double Dry Ultimate All-Weather Soft-Shell Women’s Jacket:

This beauty which goes for $60, is both wind and water resistant and wicks away moisture to keep you dry. It has invisible zippered pockets, a zip-up media pocket, white reflective details, and a  full-length lock-down zipper.

It comes in two colors: purple and black.  After I received this jacket it got steamy warm in Colorado, so I have actually not been able to test it on a run. I have worn it a ton, however, just around town (to the gym, Chick-Fil-A, donut shop). It is nice because it is very light weight but provides protection from the elements at the same time. Very comfortable, sleek fit.

The sleeve does not actually glow in the dark. Those are just the reflectors making love to my camera flash. Nice to know it will light up quite well with the help of a car’s headlights. That way you might not get pancaked on the road.

The Double Dry and Sprint Women’s Shorts:

These are made of moisture wicking fabric and have a soft inner mesh panty (yowza). The best part – they have a zippered back pocket to hold your gels, key, condom, whatever.

These come in black, purple or guava (which is a fancy name for pinkish-orange). They go for $25.

I am totally digging these shorts. Very comfy to run in. They are a perfect length for me. I hate shorts that are too long. I’m 5’5” and these babies are short enough (3.5” inseam), but not so short it scares the kids. Plus, I LOVE the nifty pocket in the back. You could even carry a poster in it if you want.

Now if they could just make a short that corrects my bow-legs and Morton’s Toe.

These are two great products that could be yours!! Champion is offering up one jacket/short for a female and one jacket/short for a male. Here are the manly man testosterone items (you reading, Chris K. and Kovas?):

Champion Double Dry Ultimate All-Weather Soft-Shell Men’s Jacket.

  • Super-soft bonded shell resists both wind and water... helps shield you from the cold...wicks sweat to keep you dry.
  • Sleek ergonomic seams give you maximum ease of movement. (Built-in stretch adds extra freedom.)
  • Inner stretch cuffs — with thumb-holes — protect your hands from chill.
  • Details add extra value: zippered on-seam pockets, tag-free mock-neck collar, lock-down zipper with storm flap, non-chafe flat-locked seams, white reflective trim.

I do not own many Champion items because the only store I know that sells their exercise clothing is Target and I have been banned from going to Target by my husband who, apparently, thinks I can't be trusted to shop there...like it's my fault the store carries so much cool stuff. What I do own are Champion sports bras...no bounce, bright colors, very comfy. I'm a devoted SUAR follower, will do FB thing, and will "like" Champion...

  94. Hey, I'm a follower! And I have no idea if I like Champion. Right now I kind of dress like an orphan when I run (whatever I can find that doesn't have holes. Or at least, doesn't have holes that no one can see). I often wonder what running in actual, real, running clothes would be like, but just can't spend the money.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I don't have any champion items either! This would be a fantastic way to start!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Of course I am also your MOST devoted follower:)

    ReplyDelete
  103. All of my sports bras are C9 from Target. They are very affordable, and given the gumdrops I am sporting, I don't need much in the way of bells and whistles. I also have several Champion tech shirts that I like, especially for layering in the winter.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I'm a Champion Sports Bra girl. I have had some of mine for a LONG time and they still hold up well (no pun intended!)

    ReplyDelete
  105. I'm a follower, I don't have much Champion stuff, only a few C9 things.

    Love Champion sport bras...follow you already, love your post, look for you everyday on facebook for inspiration before I run! Today as I ran, was wondering how I can post SUAR on myself, maybe a tatoo on my finger...or just a necklace with a long chain!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I USED to have the same kind of jacket, but from a few years ago, then someone STOLE IT, total creep, when I took it off during a run. Die, thief! I loved it and I'm still angry.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Yes, I wear Champion, I LOVE the running skirts and singlets.

  129. My training bras (ie jogging bras, husband says they look like trainers..) are Champion, plus have some sweats as well.

    ReplyDelete
  130. And...now for why I love Champion. I started running about a year ago. I started in XLarge running shorts by Champion. I lost 20 lbs and bought a whole new set of Champion shorts in Large. I lost another 10 pounds and had to get smaller running bras (sad sad). I lost another 10 lbs and now run in Medium-sized running shorts and adore Champion's Seamless Empire long-tops! Champion has seen me through a 40 lb weight loss and kept me looking good the whole way through. INCLUDING MY SUB-4 hour* LA Marathon this year!!! LOVE THEM!!

    *excluding the near-emergency 3 minute port-a-potty break that you can sympathize with, right?

    ReplyDelete
