My Essential Piece of Running Gear: The Running Tank

Steph tanksOne very important aspect of making running enjoyable is having the right running gear. Not only do you want to look good but you want to choose things that are practical. Let’s face it, many of us have a long list of things we want…and those of us with kids often have to put those things at the end of the list. So when it does come time to buy running clothes you want to spend your money on things you can get the most use out of. Without a doubt what I have the most of are good, longer length, dri-fit type running tanks.

First let me address the longer description. Luckily almost all running tanks are longer than they used to be. This is good because at 36, I am past the age where I want my torso hanging out! Also, the longer length is much more slimming, it elongates the look. The dri-fit of course is essential because it pulls the sweat away from your body and prevents your shirt from getting too heavy. Another reason why I could never have too many tanks is because I actually wear them all year long. They are always the first layer I put on even in the dead of winter. I do this partly because they are longer and they will prevent my torso from being exposed to the cold in case my pullover rides up. Because they are fitted it helps keep me warm by preventing cold air from sneaking in. I also wear them to the gym all year round. So unlike many pieces of running gear such as tights and pullovers, you can use them twelve months out of the year. For years, anytime I have shopped they are the very first thing I look at. Brand wise I have the most luck with Nike and Under Armour. Here are a few of my favorites.

The Nike Touch Breeze Tank is probably one of the thinnest and most breathable tanks that I have ever worn. With this humidity and heavy sweating that is a huge bonus. It also comes in a lot of great colors! Another one I love is the Under Armor Victory Tank.  It has a flattering neck line and also comes in good colors. I could list so many Nike tanks that I love but I will just mention one more, the Nike Flow Tank is also one that is light weight and breathable and doesn’t get heavy.

There aren’t many articles of any kind of clothing that you can invest in that you actually wear all year long. So for that reason I like to have plenty to choose from. After all, it always helps you feel good when you look good. There are so many great, bright and happy colors now and the style is flattering on so many body types. Sport Seasons has a great variety of styles and an awesome selection of color! They make great gifts also. These are all reasons why the running tank is my most essential-can’t have too many of-go to buy when it comes to running gear!
