Tommie Copper ActiveFit Review

Today is my marathon-iversary! One year ago today, I toed the line at the Wineglass Marathon. It did not go how I wanted it to, including a time above 5 hours and seeing Mike DNF (he stopped at 18.5 miles), but I finished and since then I have become a stronger marathon runner.

 Finishing up my first marathon

My Tommie Copper calf sleeves helped me get through my marathon, I love them so much!

When I found out that Tommie Copper has a new product line called ActiveFit I definitely wanted to try it out!

The ActiveFit line includes four products as of right now: a women's v-neck shirt, a women's tank top, a men's crew neck shirt and a men's sleeveless shirt.  The shirts in the ActiveFit line are looser than the regular compression gear from Tommie Copper but they are still made with the same copper-infused nylon fabric.

 Dressed like a watermelon

I immediately fell in love with the bright green v-neck shirt.  As with most of my running gear, the brighter the better! Mike was able to try the men's sleeveless shirt in grey.  We put the shirts to the test during our 18 mile mid-week run two weeks ago and we loved them! I also wore my shirt during a marathon pace 8 miler last week, it definitely helped me stand out as it started to get dark toward the end of the run.

The wicking fabric of the ActiveFit shirts helps keep you dry during your workouts. At the end of our 18 miler and our 8 miler last week, it was started to get cooler outside. I never felt chilly or wet since the fabric helped keep me dry!

I liked the looser fit of the shirt since I like my tops to move a bit while I am running. It isn't too loose, though, which can also be bothersome.

Handsome in his new sleeveless shirt!

Mike liked his new sleeveless shirt, he said that the moisture-wicking properties helped keep the sweat off of him and he didn't feel weighed down (he has only worn his shirt during our 18 miler, so far).  He also liked the new color selections and is looking forward to Tommie Copper adding more to this product line!

Since it is my marathon-iversary, I thought a giveaway of one of the four ActiveFit line shirts would be appropriate! Just enter through the Rafflecopter giveaway below and I will announce the winner on October 7th.

  2. I would like the active fit in either coral pink or lime. I don't like shirts too snug, so probably not any of the compression ones.

  6. It's too bad they don't have the v-neck shirt in blue. Since they don't, I'd go for black. I don't think I have any v-neck running shirts so this would be a fun addition.

  22. Happy marathoniversary! I'd probably get the guy's shirt because I typically do. I don't like the cut of women's shirts and how short the sleeves are. I'm a bit of a tomboy too. LOL

  37. I would absolutely love to win one of the Women's ActiveFit Tank Tops! I'm really loving the color options! That coral pink is super cute! I think if I had to pick one though, I would go with black just because it would match everything I own...meaning I could wear it all the time. These tanks look amazingly comfy. I love that I could wear it running, to yoga, paying bills, or even to bed! Perfection. Thanks for the chance!

  39. I have the knee compression sleeves and wear them everyday. It is amazing the difference they make in my pain levels - I am saving up for the tights because I want to be able to wear them to sleep in. Thanks to Tommie Copper, I am able to function with less pain.

  43. I would probably be a size small. afraid to order because i don't really think this would help the severe pain in my neck , shoulders and back from my fibromyalgia . hate to pay for another product that isn't useful .

  44. I like the v neck t shirt so much. District Threads DT104 tee is a good choice.
