If you’ve been following Sean @ultrarunnersd on Instagram or have seen any of our running photos together for the last 6-9 months, you’ve probably seen him running in Rabbit shorts. He loves their Daisy Dukes ;).
So when the nice folks at Rabbit contacted me to test out and review some of their new fall line and do a giveaway I was super excited for a few reasons.
#1 – Sean loves the brand and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about, lol
#2 – It’s California company, based out of Santa Barbara, I even saw one of the founders, Monica, out on a run when I was crewing for Sean at the SB100 in July. And not only that, the clothes are made in Los Angeles, which allows them to keep a close eye on the production of their products.
#3 – Their clothes are really cute, I mean come on, that little rabbit logo is too cute.
They sent me 2 pieces from their new fall line. I’m going to review the Sleevie Wonder today and I’ll be reviewing the other piece in a few weeks.
What is the Sleevie Wonder? Well it’s a long sleeve shirt that comes in 2 different material options. 1) All “rabbit mesh” or 2) a combo “rabbit mesh” & heather. It’s got a thumb hole and it’s lightweight, so so soft and it’s a slightly looser fit.
I got a size medium, I’m a 6/8 in other brands depending on the fit, but I have long arms and hate tight necklines so I typically go up slightly to accommodate. The medium fits me perfectly, the arms are just a tad short with the thumb hole used but not bad. And the neckline is slightly lower than a normal crew-neck which suits me perfectly!
I found it to work well in the upper 40/low 50 degree temps that we’ve had here recently in San Diego. It’s not too heavy but it’s not super light either. Kind of like Goldilocks, it was just right :).
I picked the combo Rabbit Mesh & Heather sleevie and OMG, the heathered portion of the shirt is so so soft. It feels amazing on, I seriously just want to wear it all the time. The rabbit mesh arm is so cute with lots of little rabbits all over the arm. I found the mesh arm to be a little thinner than the heather arm which was a nice contrast. It allowed a little more airflow which kept me cool when I heated up.
There are 4 different colors for the sleevie wonder, 2 each for the different styles. I picked the deep blue heather color, it’s kind of a dark purple and since purple is one of my fav colors, I figured this would be a better fit for me than the black heather. There are also 2 different colors in the all rabbit mesh, a hot pink called cabaret & navy blue called dress blues.
It’s not super cold here in San Diego yet, but last week we had a little cool spell and I couldn’t wait to try my new Rabbit gear out. The sleevie felt great on, like I said before it is super soft and it wicked sweat nicely. One of the nice things about Rabbit is that their gear dries really quickly. I wish they would come out with a fast drying sports bra, because post run, wet sports bras are the worst!
I didn’t have any issues with my sleevie riding up or moving around, in fact I barely felt like it was on. I did wear a tank under it the first time I wore it and I also tried it a second time with only a sports bra underneath and it fit great either way. I foresee this being a great addition to my cool SD weather arsenal.
