I had a chance to ride with Phil and test out my new kit from Coeur Sports as part of The Collective Beat, a team of women in triathlon supporting and encouraging all athletes.

But, this post is a clothing review, so more on The Collective Beat in a future post. Since I started triathlon, I’ve worn lots of different clothing brands in the search for something that fits well and is comfortable without chaffing on long rides or runs. My favorites are Terry, Bontrager, Santini, and Coeur Sports. All of my tri kits, two of my bib shorts, triathlon shorts, and a few of my cycling jerseys are from Coeur, and here’s why: they are soft like butter, stay in place, and are comfortable for all day wear.
The bib shorts keep everything in place for long rides and were so comfortable, I bought two after getting tired of washing them immediately after every ride because that’s all I wore. The bib shorts also have pockets like the running shorts and are big enough to stash a phone and other goodies, one pocket on each leg. The cycling jersey didn’t bunch up or ride up above my waist and has three pockets as well as a zippered pocket for valuables. As for tri kits, Coeur is the best. I wear the one-piece sleeved kit for all of my races because it feels like I’m not wearing anything at all. It’s like being naked, but supported in all the right places. And, it has pockets!
Everything Coeur makes has pockets! Pockets in the bib shorts, three pockets in the back of the tri kit, two pockets on running shorts big enough for a phone, yet it doesn’t weigh down the shorts as I run. The tri shorts have tiny pockets for gels and paired with a cycling jersey, you have pockets, pockets, pockets! Pockets for all my friends!
It’s no surprise that Coeur Sports is one of my favorite brands: it’s also a triathlon clothing company run by women for women. And women know that women want pockets for all the things. Check out their site for swim, bike, run, and triathlon clothes for women of all shapes and sizes because everyone should look awesome while training and competing. https://www.coeursports.com/
