Thoosa Chill Hoody and Tights – Product Review
I’ve always loved running, but as I got older I started to care what I looked liked pounding the streets. I found that running tops were too tight or too boxy, shorts were too short and the colours left a lot to be desired. I decided to tackle the problem and set about designing great quality running clothing in breathable fabrics and vibrant colours.
With the help of some talented friends I launched Thoosa in 2007 and I haven’t looked back. To my amazement and delight, earlier this year the brand was named Best Women’s Apparel brand by Runner’s World magazine.
I think the reason the brand has been so well received is because at its heart is a runner who simply wanted to look good. I now realise that my motivation to run goes hand-in-hand with how I look and although I’m passionate about the benefits of running, the motivation doesn’t always come easily.
The biggest barrier to running is definitely my own front door. If I can just get out the door then the hard work is done and I always come back feeling better. I therefore design Thoosa products with this challenge in mind. Is this top more or less likely to get me out the door? Will these tights give me motivation to get off the sofa?
Start the journey
There are so many benefits to leading an active life and I hope that you’ll find something from the collection that will inspire you to start the journey. Once you’ve started there’ll be no stopping you!

This up-dated version of our Chill tights are perfect for winter running. They feature a wide, flat waistband with an added draw-cord, contrast flatlock stitching, a zip pocket on the back and reflective ankle zips. They have a 32 inch inseam but are super stretchy and so will fit most heights comfortably.
