Craft Kit on Test - First Look


We’ve got some awesome looking kit on test from Craft just now and we thought we would give you the top line features, so you know what you can look forward to hearing about from us soon.


Craft Vent Mesh Singlet


Yes, we’re really looking forward to some warmer weather and to enjoying the great outdoors with fewer layers on, and in particular to testing some kit from Craft.  We know from experience that the Craft brand is always outstanding and our first look at these pieces suggests we are in for a real treat.


Here is what we have coming up, with a review of the promised features.


Craft Vent Mesh Singlet


The Vent range is incredibly lightweight with a “barely-there” feel.  At this stage we have only tried things on for size but the first impressions are all about the super thin floaty fabrics, with beautiful drape, in stylish designs and bold colours.


We love the promise of UV protection and salute Craft for their desire to limit their impact on the environment by using recycled materials to create the fabrics for this range.


The Craft Vent Mesh Singlet is seriously lightweight, with a racer back and seams which have been taped and bonded – this means they lie completely flat and promise zero chafing.


Using 38% recycled material, this singlet is body skimming and hangs close to the skin without any tugging or pulling.  The design allows for air to circulate, pulling sweat away from the body, whilst also offering protection from the sun.  We can’t wait to use it in anger when the temperatures rise.


Size: XS-XXL

Material: Front: 91% Polyester 9% Elastane, Back: 47% Polyester 38% Recycled Polyester 15% Elastane

Colour: Multi Neo, Shock (we got Shock on test and it is bold and beautiful!)

Price: £30

Craft Run Vent 2 In 1 Racing Shorts Women


Coordinating beautifully with the Craft Vent Mesh Singlet, the Vent 2 in 1 Racing shorts are also lightweight, stretchy and made to keep you comfortable in the warmest weather.

Key features include a wide waistband, bonded leg ends and a really useful pocket hidden in the inner pants.  Once again Craft have used recycled fabrics, which certainly makes us feel better about wearing them.

Craft Essence Zip Tight


The Craft Essence Zip Tights are a form fitting, full length, stretch tights that will work equally well in the gym or on the roads.  

Craft Essence Zip Tight


These tights feature a zip closure around the ankle which ensures the perfect fit on the lower leg and also makes them easy to get on and off.  We like the look of the mesh section Craft has added behind the knee and the wide waist band appears to be supportive and flattering.  The use of recycled fabrics without any compromise to the quality or feel of the fabrics is once again a triumph. 


Sizes : XS-XL

Material: 80% Polyamide-Recycled 20% Elastane

Colour: Black

We’ll be back with our verdict on the performance of these gorgeous looking pieces just as soon as the sun comes out, or after our training camp in Mallorca – whichever comes first!
