If you're looking for a Uglow clothing review, then find out here if Uglow is for you.
As a runner we are always being confronted and seduced by the latest shoes, clothing, accessories and so on. The current big name brands seem to do rather well with their marketing techniques as they can afford to, often over hyping some things and being pretty persuasive
But let's be realistic. Not all of us can afford to renew our running jackets or pants every year and with running, especially in races, you want to wear your tried and tested running kit that you know will be comfortable, won't rub or rip and that is going to last more than one season.
My foray into Uglow running clothing started a couple of years ago when I was looking for a light, reliable, waterproof running jacket for my first ultra marathon.
Being a newbie at that distance I wasn't quite sure what to wear. With a little bit of internet research, I ended up with a Uglow rain hybrid jacket.
Roll on several months and I have worn that jacket for hundreds of km's through rain, snow and mud. It got me through my first 80km ultra in the worst weather conditions possible and my Uglow rain jacket is still going strong.
Since then I have been a convert and I have been squirreling away a closet full of Uglow running clothing, whenever I can.
You may be thinking that I am just doing a sales pitch for Uglow. To be honest, they did ask me to be an ambassador after I had written a review of their Rain Jacket but I don't get any commission should you buy any of their products.
I am writing this Uglow clothing review as I truly believe that their running gear is worth promoting.
Uglow is a French brand conceived in 2011 by runners, so is a bit of a newcomer to the running scene. I live in France so it is spreading here quicker than in other countries however its band of followers worldwide, is certainly on the increase.
The company has an interesting philosophy - quality, comfort, lightweight and practicality. They want you to feel that you are almost running naked, hence their tag lines: #runNAKED #liveNAKED #stitchFREE.
For this reason, the seams on their clothing are heat bonded rather than sewn, most zips have been replaced by magnetic closures and the material is SO soft and light, that you hardly feel your'e wearing anything.
Uglow make products not just for running but also for cycling and for everyday casual wear (think of the casual sporty look).
I wear Uglow running clothing as it is a bit different, the quality is great, everything is hyper comfortable and I love the material, designs and colors. Simple.
