PanAlp 5557 Tank Top Smart andPanAlp 1670 Sport Tights Smart
Featuring functional material combinations, the design of the PanAlp sports bras, tank tops and sport tights leggings have a clean and minimalist look on the outside, while being packed with carefully thought-out functions on the inside. This soft, breathable tank top ($82) has an inner construction offering great support. The leggings ($89) are made of the same soft smooth fabric as the matching tank top and have a feel-good high waistband and practical pockets on each side. Garments in the Anita Active PanAlp series are inspired by outdoor activities such as mountain sports, running, biking or hiking.
A standout garment for use in aerobic activities in cold conditions, the $229 Deviator Hoodie is able to retain critical warmth, while also shedding heat when on the move, thanks to the new VerticalX Octa insulation technology paired with hybrid-mapped fabrics. VerticalX Octa is more effective for active use, according to the brand, because it doesn’t require an interior liner fabric and has an open structure, allowing it to breathe more effectively. It’s 50 percent lighter than traditional polyester insulation, has an outstanding warmth-to-weight ratio, wicks moisture, and is soft against the skin. On the back, side panels and under the arms, the Deviator uses a more breathable polyester/spandex grid fleece. All fabric and insulation materials are bluesign approved.
