New Spring #RunningGear by #CTR!

6 Comments

Today is all about some fabulous new running gear which I was very thankful to receive by the local Montreal company Chaos Hats. They provided me with four CTR items which have been put to good use this week during my training runs!

Chase Ponytail Skully

First of all as much it’s spring, it still feels cold on many early morning runs. Hats are definitely still a necessity to retain some body heat and keep the ears warm from the wind. The material wicks sweat perfectly and it’s a great combination of retaining warmth at the beginning of the run and not overheating as you get further along. The fit is perfect and I can’t deny the practicality of the ponytail holder. Hats are always an issue without one of these!

Chase Headband

I wear a lot of headbands and most of them, despite the fact that they all claim to stay put on your head no matter what activity you do, most do not. I hate having to adjust headbands mid run, mid yoga or mid anything! Nothing more annoying than messing around with your hair accessory when you want to be focusing on your workout. So when I saw the same claim on this headband, I figured I knew what I was in for. Well, I am happy to report that I was totally wrong! This headband does actually stay put! Mostly I believe due to the tie in the back. All my other headbands tend to slip off (maybe it’s just my head?) but when I tie the CTR headband, I can make it as tight or as loose as I need and it stays. Not to mention the wide front band that wicks sweat (same great material as the hat).

Chase belt

Now here’s an item that I can really get behind! See I have a purse problem. I’m usually the girl with the massive oversize purse carrying everything I’ve ever owned. I have the same issue when I run. I need my phone, water, kleenex, lip balm, keys, ID, money and now that I’m training a marathon I need some extra fuel. I’ve been struggling about where to put everything and how to carry it. This little belt was the perfect answer for all the little extras that were not fitting into my pockets and fuel belt. It’s small, light and can stretch to accommodate a number of items. I even used it as the only carrying item on short runs when I didn’t need water or fuel!

Chase Slapband

Super fun item! It’s great how all the CTR items have some reflective details on them but these little slap bands really did the trick. Not to mention they are fun to use. Just slap and go! Reminded me of the slap bracelets I used to have as a kid. I felt extra safe on the roads during a recent evening run.

After trying these products I was really impressed with them. All are durable, easily washable and have great practical and stylistic elements. Another plus for me is that they are easy to find at my local mall. Nothing worse than falling in love with a product only to find out it can only be found in a small boutique that may or may not ship to Canada!

All the CTR products are reasonably priced and can be found at most Montreal Sports Experts stores.

Thank you Chaos Hats! I will be using these and more CTR products for a long time!!
