Oiselle Running Gear Review: Workout Essentials for Women

Women-owned, Seattle-based company Oiselle creates running gear and athletic apparel for active women. I tested out two of their new tops, the Summer Lux Short Sleeve and Passport Raceback Tank.

Oiselle Running Gear Review:

Price and Where to Buy Oiselle: Oiselle gear is available on Amazon and on Oiselle’s website. The Passport Racerback Tank is $58, and the Summer Lux Short Sleeve is $54.

[st_content_ad]How the Oiselle Running Gear Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Both tops are lightweight, soft, stretchy, and comfortable for running or other workouts. They offer coverage without making you too hot.
  • Value: 9/10. The prices are comparable to other high-end athletic apparel brands, and these will last for a long time.
  • Durability: 9/10. The tops hold up well to intense sweat sessions, and both can be machine-washed.
  • Portability: 10/10. The shirts pack down small and are extremely lightweight, so they won’t take up much room in your suitcase. 
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. The stylish prints on these make the tops indistinguishable from regular clothing, so you could pair these with jeans and wear them outside of the gym as well.

Final Verdict: Add an Oiselle top to your summer athletic apparel lineup to stay cool and fashionable.
