First things first. I was not paid to do this review. I paid for the product myself with my own money.
Well I am amazed. I did not expect it to come so fast. I am sure that other people will not have the exact same experience. However, on their website, when you go to order they have a warning. Like any company would during this pandemic. So I expected to have to wait for it for a while, weeks even.
“Good news! We are still able to ship to your country, however due to ongoing challenges related to COVID-19 your order may be subject to courier delays.
Please keep an eye on our ‘COVID-19’ FAQ page for further updates.”
I saw that these pants were on sale. I have been wanting to get them for a while, love the color and the pattern. Did not want to buy full price cause I was worried I would not like them like the last ones I bought from Gymshark. I was willing to give them another chance.
I understand they have different fabrics, however since I am buying these on my own I cannot afford to try all the different styles. I just get what I can when I can.
I ordered it on 03/16/2020 and received it yesterday 03/19/2020. That’s three days. With the ability to see where the order is, I saw that the label was printed in Belgium, and it shipped out of Germany, then it got here. This happened all in three days. So regardless of what I think of the pants. I am about to go run in them, and then do my Muay Thai and Kali workout. I am very happy with the shipping. I would have understood if it took longer, but it did not thankfully.
Enough prattling on here is the review:
I love them. They fit well, they perform well, and they do what I need them to do when I am moving around. On top of it all they are my favorite color.
I put up pictures above, and in one of them you can see the silicon lining at the waistline. I was surprised about it and in the end happy about it. When I went running they did not slip at all. I did not have to adjust them at all.
- Stay put when running, doing martial arts, I am sure when doing anything they will stay put.
- Very comfortable, fabric is silky, and compression is just right.
- Size is dead on for me.
- Waist band is nice and thick.
- The shipping was phenomenal.
- They were on sale
- The color. Oh that saturated cobalt blue is so beautiful.
- High waist (on me it is very high waisted, because I am short)
- I like the design.
- I guess the only thing I would say could be better is if it had pockets.
I really had no problems with these so far. They are exactly what I wanted. When I run they stay in place. They move with me, and I love them.
Would I buy them again?
Yes I would. Maybe a different color, or maybe the same color cause I love the color so much.
Does this change my view on Gymshark?
Yes I am more willing to give them a try again. Of course when there is a sale.
This was my first review of them. My over all review and feelings about the first order was meh. I do not wear those pants to workout, I wear them to the bakery instead. They did not hold up well.
Would I pay full price for these pants?
You know… I would. I like a sale better, but I would certainly pay full price. I work out 5 to 6 days a week normally so investing in great gear is important and helps to make the process more fun, and smoother.
So hopefully that is a little bit different post than most out there. It has been a crazy tumultuous couple of weeks. We don’t know what is going to happen from on day to the next. I am still trying to keep up with my training.
As silly as it seems having something come in, no matter if it is small is nice. It is something to look forward to. Something different to take the mind off of what is rolling around the corner.
As always, thank you for reading. At this time and during our social distancing. I feel like I have a connection to other people outside of my home. Even if it is just through my blog. My personal social media sites, or through email and snail mail. While we flatten the curve at least this is a place where we can write to one another.
So if you have questions, feel free to ask. Like if you like this kind of blog post. Also let me know if you want me to write about something else. Keep safe. Wash your hands, and hug your loved ones if you can.
