This is the racing singlet you didn't know you needed...

I'm very fussy with what I like to run in, but even more so when it comes to racing. I have a handful of tops and shorts that I rotate on a regular basis and I wear them religiously, I guess I feel attached to certain pieces and consider them good luck charms. It's rare that I choose to add a new style of top to my racing collection, but last year ASICS started producing these really cool, loose racing vests for women. The first one I bought was neon green and I absolutely loved it; at that time they were only making them in S, M, L, and as someone who is generally XS I had to make do with a vest which was a little bit too big for me and tuck it into my shorts each time I raced - but I didn't mind that because the vest itself was everything I had ever been looking for in a racing top. I then bought the same vest in black towards the end of last year; again in the same size. 

And then my racing vest miracle the beginning of 2020 they released two new colour ways of this vest, and they started to produce them in XS. Obviously I bought both colours; the 'dolphin blue' is just glorious and is now one of my favourite colours to run in, especially as it matches my new bright blue Gel-Nimbus 22s, but the 'performance black' colour way is equally beautiful and consists of shades of grey/black and geometric shapes. I couldn't have asked for more perfect colours to add to my collection. 

So what makes this vest so great? 

I absolutely adore the style of this vest, and even more so now that it comes in XS. It's just a super comfortable, lightweight, and beautiful piece to wear. Although the price point may seem steep initially (£45), I think you are getting a really great quality garment and you certainly won't regret your purchase.
