Product Review: thriv 1st Natural Performance Apparel

Posted on Jan 30, 2010 under Reviews | 1 Comment

I was contacted on behalf of thriv many months ago asking if I was interested in testing out their new and unique fitness apparel brand. It sounds like a new company using a grassroots campaign to get word out on their new products. What sets them apart from other companies is how their apparel is made: eco-friendly bamboo and cotton. Who would have thought that it was possible to wear bamboo? Anyways, the combination of the two creates a natural and light-weight solution as opposed to other synthetic polyesters. The fabric is able to wick sweat a lot better than the mega-giant brand Under Armour and has a higher SPF. It doesn’t hold odor in which is nice and it’s extraordinarily soft, which I can vouch for after washing it numerous times.


Quick Facts:

  • Moisture Wicking – Keeps you dry and comfortable
  • Breathable – Regulates your core temperature
  • Anti-Microbial – bamboo naturally resists odor
  • UV Protection – UPF 50+ blocks 99% of sun’s rays

I haven’t had to wear many of my tech tees now that summer is over and I’m usually wearing long sleeve shirts during my runs. But when I do go for a later run in the afternoons, I do enjoy wearing the thriv for all of the reasons stated above.

And who wouldn’t want to wear an article of clothing with what looks like a panda as the logo?!
