Champion Eco Fleece Review & Giveaway (Male & Female Winners!)

Today I am going to spoil you with how SUAR looks (yes, I like to talk in the third person) when she is done running, about to run, recovering from running or basically any other time when she is not going to work or a parent/teacher conference.

U-G-L-Y. she ain’t got no alibi (although her sweats are pretty nice):

Please do not submit these photos to US Weekly to be entered into the the “Stars! Their just like us! They look like shit when no one is around” segment. Because I am not a Star and no one cares anyway.

Oh, yeah, party in my kitchen! Hands in the air now! Midriff exposed! Booyah!

P1110183

On the surface, these may look like just another pair of comfy sweats. But, look more closely. What do you see?P1110181

I will punch you in the face with my blurry fists and bald head. I said look closer!:

If you looked deeply enough you might have seen recycled fibers. That is because these sweats are Champion’s new Eco Fleece line made from 5% recycled plastic water bottle fibers. Basically, if you wear these sweats and go put that cardboard pizza box in the recycling bin, you have done your good deed for the day and can go back to bed.

In all seriousness, when you purchase an Eco-fleece item, you're helping to keep 5 million plastic bottles out of landfills.

These sweats are very cozy. They are roomy and are the perfect go-to outfit after a long, cold run. The inside is even softer than the outside. Snuggle into these babies, sit in front of some football and eat some chips. The roominess allows from some waistline expansion for sure.

I am wearing the Women’s Full Zip Hoodie Jacket in size small, color acai. This retails for $38, but Champion is having a 20% online sale right now, so that makes it about $30.40 to be exact.image

I am also wearing the Women’s Open Hem Women’s Sweatpants in size small, color granite. These sell for $28.image

I’ve said it before, I like Champion stuff because it is affordable, yet quality. There are tons of awesome running items out there, but who can pay $60 a shot? Champion makes stuff for the everyday athlete who wants to look good but might have to count some pennies along the way.

Want this outfit? Or course you do. It’s comfy and free. I have one to give away for ladies and one for men. The men’s version would be something like this:

    ReplyDelete
  6. My old USMC sweats and a tshirt. Not exactly sexy, but SOOOOO comfy.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Post run?? 1st thing I do is LOSE the cloths! LoL Out of the hot shoes & socks and the constricting sports bra (free those puppies!) then you'll likely find me on the couch, fan on full blast in a baggy tee & undies . We fat girls tend to sweat in places I didn't even know I had glands!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Post run I always end up in my sports bra and running shorts. I get hot and clothes need to be removed ASAP!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Post run I'm usually wearing an old sweatshirt, microfleece pj pants, and compression socks.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My usual post workout outfit usually involves yoga pants and either a tank or one of the Ugly Sweaters. Hubs hates em, I love em.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I liked champion. Not sure why I never did before...half my workout wardrobe is champion. Target sells it, so I end up buying more if I've forgotten something impotant like pants when I gotta gym it up

    ReplyDelete
  12. Best post-workout outfit? PJs.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Unfortunately, I always seem to have to go some place (usually work or church) post-run and have to put on dress clothes (yuck!). My ideal outfit is an old race shirt, Nike tempo shorts or yoga pants, and compression socks.

    ReplyDelete
  14. My post-run outfit usually consists of me staying in my running clothes until I shower. Now that I'm getting into Compression Clothes for recovery, a must are compression shorts and socks, along with my favorite sweats--oh and boyshort underwear.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would love to say I wear something nearly as awesome as a unitard, but honestly, the giveaway is exactly what I put on, or the likes of it. Comfort and stretchiness (is that a word?)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I already follow your blog. Frikkin love it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, and I liked Champion. Didn't even think to look for them on facebook…

  19. I like to wear another workout outfit after I've worked out - great for running errands or napping!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I usually end up in an outfit that looks exactly like the one you're wearing! I go for comfort after a long run, and when I get home from work, and when I get up, and...well yeah, I pretty much always go for comfort...

    ReplyDelete
  21. After my long runs, my favorite is to put on my Zoot recovery tights and a comfy long sleeved shirt. I also love these soft yoga pants I have for lounging. BUT, those sweat pants look super comfy!

    ReplyDelete
  22. A fleece out fit not unlike yours, but my pants have a bunch of holes (hint: I could use new duds). I rationalize that it is for stretching.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Post run usually is cotton shorts (commando - because you need to know things like this) and a cotton tank top.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I follow your blog. Also I love to wear sweat pants and a baggy shirt and spend time relaxing.

    ReplyDelete
  25. post long run is usually no clothes and wrapped in a towel til i stop sweating and cool off

    ReplyDelete
  26. I live in my polka dot boxer shorts (Walmart) and a t-shirt.

    I'm classy.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Post run outfit - sweats and uggs. Oh yes.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thong and pasties, you too?? Haha my after-workout gear usually depends on the weather and whats next in my day. I could live in a sports bra, tank, and shorts. But it gets cold in Iowa so a comfy hoody would be awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I liked Champion! I like them too in real life.

  75. And I like champion on facebook. And in real life :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. I am a jeans and tshirt kind of girl. After my post-long-run shower I put on my favorite pair of Joe's Jeans and one of my cheap Target tshirts.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I subscribed to your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  78. sometimes post-long-run I get home and my young kids "need" me immediately, and it ends up being hours before I even shower. Meaning post-long-run I'm still wearing my long run clothes. It smells nice in my house! My favorite thing to wear, at that point, is anything that doesn't smell so bad I want to run away from myself. Like comfy sweats or yoga pants.

    ReplyDelete
  79. I follow your blog on Google Reader. Sometimes I even read all of the posts.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Fav Post Race Attire -- gym shorts and a tank top....after really long runs, I do wear compression sleeves too

    ReplyDelete
  81. In the summer it's any 5K cotton t-shirt and shorts and in the winter I love my school red-plaid pajama pants and my long sleeved Chili Chase race shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Favorite post run outfit...whatever I worked out in. My 1-year old doesn't give me the chance to change!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm about to blog about this give away on www.runningforreagan.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  84. Sweats and a long sleeve T or hoodie

    ReplyDelete
  85. After a long run, I am in my sweats. Yes, pink KMart sweats. If it is summer in PHX then boxer shorts and a tank. Glamour at its best.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I already like champion on FB

    ReplyDelete
  87. So, if I tell you that my post long-run outfit is a thong and pasties will that mean I will qualify for the female giveaway, or can I still be in the running for the male giveaway?

    Just because that is what I wear under it all doesn't mean I don't like to look like a man to everyone else. :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Flannel jammie pants and a baggy shirt, but can't forget the ever fashionable compression calf sleeves. They go so well with jammie pants.
    I wear the heck out of Champion workout clothes! I have no idea why I didn't like them on FB... until now.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I follow your blog and I like Champion. PS_ they have the best sport bras.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I liked Champion on FB and I have FB you!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Just my pink compression socks, nothing else!!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Post run? Shower first. If it's a long run then definitely sweats! I get cold about 30 min after a long run. Short run, any old pair of comfy shorts and usually one of my twenty In-N-Out shirts.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I now follow your blog with Google Reader.

    ReplyDelete
  97. After a long run, I love to sit in my yoga pants and a sweatshirt.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I like champion on FB. I also like their running tights. Some of my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I like to wear the most baggie cotton anything I can find!

    ReplyDelete
  102. So I'm your one reader who runs but not long. I'm a 10k-er 4 days a week instead, so anyway, after i run "regular", I go home, shower and put on real people clothes for my busy trip to town, hanging out at the bookstore or shopping in Walmart while i wait for my youngest to get outta preschool. Oh, but if I had some cute, comfy Champion sweats, I'd wear them. Heck, even the slippers could be worn in walmart, right?! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  103. i like champion on fb [username karen r m] runner_girl5k at yahoo dot com

    ReplyDelete
  104. Post run? I wear my grody, soggy running uniform as long as possible. If I put something else on, I feel like I am getting a whole 'nother set of clothes dirty. Although, I can only wallow in my own filth for so long before I start to gross myself out.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Post run I like loose pants and a tshirt and some flip flops. Free the feet!

    ReplyDelete
  106. In the summer, cotton shorts and t-shirt. In the winter, same when I get out of the shower(I'm always hot for a while after I run, no matter how cold it is outside), then add a hoodie after I cool down. Commando, either way. Just too hot. Love the feel(and price)of cotton, but could see myself falling for Eco-Fleece :-)

    ReplyDelete
  107. Adidas tear away pants and my old high school soccer sweatshirt. Nothing better.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Oh, and I just followed your blog. I'd been reading it for so long I thought I already had, but apparently not. Really kind of superfluous for me since I see the new content in my Reader, but I know it helps your metrics :-) And I also click through to your page when there's new content even though I could read it in my reader; for the same reason) Prettier on your page anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Compression socks, ridiculously baggy non-yoga style lululemon pants, hoodie, long sleeve t-shirt. Maybe a nap. Definitely contacts out and wearing glasses. The couch is usually close by, too. Oh, and something to eat. And some water.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I follow you. So closely I can see the skid marks.

    ReplyDelete
  111. I prefer to be naked after a long run. :)

    ReplyDelete
  112. I liked champion on facebook. Go me.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I prefer to remain in my sweaty smelly workout clothes post run. That way, if anyone happens to drop ny the house, I have proof that I am a stud. After finally showering...yoga pants and a tank (with a buikt in bra!) are comfort heaven :)

    ReplyDelete
  114. Aaaand, liked Champion on FB. Done.

    ReplyDelete
  115. My fav post-long run outfit is jammie pants under a long comfy night gown. No socks, I like to look at my black and blue toes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I commented about this give away on FB!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I've had your blog on my google reader forever, but I am now an official 'follower'. Never can get enough of the crap talk...

    ReplyDelete
  118. Last winter I had a pair of Hot Rod tights and there were great, but you it summer so if I've run for home the pool is calling me, so wet hair is about all I wear...

    ReplyDelete
  119. Post-long run I keep it sweet and simple: shorts and a t-shirt. =)

    ReplyDelete
  120. I love me some comfy sweats post-run.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
