Recently, I went on a run wearing C2’s Elite Half Zip and their Performance Tights. It was a typical rainy Seattle morning which made for perfect conditions to try out something new. The temperature was 56 degrees that morning. I took off to run a lap around Greenlake with a client.

I choose to review the Elite Half Zip because I wear pull over shirt/half zip type shirts all the time. Especially during the colder months. I wore the half zip over a standard dry fit shirt that I would typically wear under a half zip shirt. The first thing I noticed was it comfortable. I asked for a Large and it fit well. Not too loose and definitely long enough for my torso. For a run in the fifties, it was definitely warm enough. It didn’t make me feel too cold or too hot, it just felt normal so it will definitely be a part of my regular rotation. 

I wanted to review the Performance Tights because I do wear run tights and it is always good to have more layering options, especially in the winter. The material is different then the typically type of tight I currently own. It is a little thicker and fuzzier. When I put them on first thing in the morning, they were totally comfortable and when I saw it was rain out that morning, I was glad I was wearing them. Running wise, they felt great. I didn’t notice them, no itching or anything like that, which is what you want when it comes to any sort of athletic gear. The only downside was that they were too warm. Once I got about a mile into my run, my legs were burning up. They would be much better in 40’s verse in the 50’s. 

Overall, I really like both products and I will continue to wear them.  5 Stars
