Tall Hoodie Giveaway & Review

I love tall fitness clothing. If I don’t have anywhere special to go, I enjoy wearing relaxed pieces. So, I was really excited to be able to try out Vertical Athletics tall hoodie. And I must say that this tall hoodie is awesome! These seriously have the longest sleeves that I have ever seen. The sleeves come half way down my hands. I actually had to push them up a little. Wow, I’m not used to having my ankles covered. Can you believe it was even long enough to cover my rear? Love that!
It it is so comfy. The inside is really soft and the neck doesn’t strangle me (like some of my other hoodies). It is made of organic cotton and has a bit of Lycra in it for stretch.

Here is a little bit about the company -Vertical Athletics – written by the owner Renee:
“I started Vertical Athletics because it seemed nearly impossible to find quality fitness apparel that was long enough for me. Knowing that many of my friends, family and teammates had the same problem, I decided to turn my passion for style and sports into a new career. I designed Vertical Athletics especially for tall men and tall women to give them extra room for our longer torsos, legs, and arms. I also thought it was important to make as little of an impact on the environment as possible, which is why we use many sustainable fabrics like; Recycled Polyester and Cotton, COCONA carbon from recycled coconut shells, Bamboo, Organic Cotton and other eco-friendly performance fabrics. Enjoy your new favorite workout gear- it’s just one more reason to love being Vertical!”
Yours truly, Renee

    I would choose the recycled men’s hoodie for my husband; he’s so tall and super skinny; so that makes it even harder to find him clothes that are fitted.
