Product Reviews

I test and wear a wide range of fitness and outdoors clothing, especially female-specific kit. These days, there are many brands to recommend. But sometimes I come across something new that I am keen to talk a bit more about.

ZOCA Active cropped up at a trade show and I did a bit of investigating. The company is founded by women and makes sports and fitness clothing for women. So this explains why the designs, fit, colours and features of the ZOCA running, cycling and fitness clothes are so lovely.

Pack Away Jacket – Steel by Isabella R4W member

STYLE – It is very stylish. I love to run in something that makes me feel pretty. I find myself wearing it every time I go out for a jog. Score. 5/5

COMFORT – The material is interesting; not at all what I expected but it is light and soft and breathable. Score 5/5

BREATH ABILITY – It’s possibly too breathable. It doesn’t keep me warm me warm when it’s cold and windy. Score 5/5

QUALITY – The jacket itself is of good quality; however, the bag that holds the jacket is not, the string on the bag is barely sewn together and looks like it could fall apart easily. Score 3/5

COLOUR – I love this steel-grey colour. It’s pretty without being over the top. Score 5/5

OVERALL – The jacket is nice, I think it looks cool. I love that it packs away and I can take it with my easily. I also like the reflective strips. I love that it covers my bottom when I run, but I’m not sure about functionality. If I am cold it doesn’t keep me warm. If the sun shines on it, it gets too hot and I have to take it off. Score 3/5
