Editor’s Note: I recently started hitting the gym again, so I needed to refresh my workout gear. I used to shop at Lululemon, but I was tired of spending so much money for a basic T-shirt and shorts. While searching for better options, a friend told me I had to check out Vuori.
When I’m on my game, I basically live at the gym, so I demand durable activewear that performs. But I also like to wear it around the house and even when meeting my friends for lunch. I’m sure I’m not the only guy who hates changing his outfit three times a day – but where’s the brand that meets all my needs?
My friend Dash swore that Vuori is the solution to my problem. And when I looked on Vuori’s site I was so inspired by their clothes that I wanted to hit the trails! I worried that clothes this fine would break the bank – especially since I must replace all the ratty performance wear I owned. Then I noticed their super-affordable prices. $68 for a good pair of shorts isn’t bad at all. Their tanks cost even less – only $40?! But what about the quality?
Vuori uses eco-friendly fabrics. Most of their stuff is made out of recycled materials that are certified organic. I’m really all for the environment, but I wasn’t sure how well sustainable fabrics would hold up with my intensive day-to-day routine.
My workout gear has to be quick-drying, moisture-wicking, lightweight, and to top it off, make me look as good as I feel. To my surprise, Vuori’s apparel claims to offer all that, but I was still doubltful about the fit, size, and functionality.
Vuori offers an Investment In Happiness product guarantee. If I don’t like their stuff, I can send it back for free. I went for the Kore Short, the Strato Tech Tank, and the Tradewind Performance Tee to give Vuori a fair shot.
My Vuori package arrived right on time, and it was a moment of truth.
I tried the clothes on and immediately noticed the softness of the material. The shirts and the shorts felt super lightweight, fit perfectly, and look great on me – exactly what I was after!
The Kore Short has an elastic waistband for a super comfortable fit. I love the slash pockets that can hold my phone, headset, and keys. The fabric is high-performance and even anti-odor, so I can go from a hard workout to coffee with my girlfriend – without worries.
The Strato Tech Tank is now my go-to tank. It provides a contemporary, athletic fit, and the quality is spot on. I can tell you how happy I am about the Tradewind Performance Tee. It’s casual so it works for both working out and everyday life.
Vuori has the best performance wear out there by far! I’m sticking with them. If you’re tired of overspending on Lululemon or other status-brands, you’ve got to check out Vuori – you’ll get the same quality at a fraction of the price!
