New: The North Face Tadasana Zip-Neck Top & Pant

The North Face has been doing some pretty fun, comfy and functional products in their yoga line. We recently have brought in the Tadasana VPR Rose and the Tadasana Pant in both the graphite grey nylon supplex version with Pippi Pink detail and the all black stretch cotton version.

The Tadasana VPR Rose full-zip jacket is super stretchy and has such a soft feel. This top is ideal for warming up on a cool summer morning or to stay warm while you stretch out after a long run. 90% nylon and 10% elastane, this "ShapeShifter" fabic gives nicely so you don't feel the top cutting in or restricting your movement. The fabric is also sheer enough that it doesn't catch or chaffe in the pits and elbows. The slim-fit and extra long cut paired with this stretchy, smooth fabric is snug enough to fit securely and stay in place, long enough to feel air from sneaking in at the waistline, but isn't so tight that it squeezes your soft spots. All the pros, none of the cons for a top that is form fitting, supportive and flattering!

The flat lock seams and contrasting Pippi Pink stitching and floral print really pops against the Graphite Grey. Mesh panneling moves air when you are working hard and Vapor-wick material moves moisture away from your body to evaporate quickly and keeps you dry making this a very technical and very attractive piece. Other details include hand pockets, zipper pull and UPF protection.

The North Face Tadasana VPR Pant features 4-way stretch, 88% Nylon Supplex and 12% elastane for a ShapeShifting qualities that give every women a slimmer look without too much compression or restriction. No muffin tops or other undesirable bulges here. This style has a very comfortable, wide waistband that feature a fun Pippi Pink contrast on one hip for understated flare. Functional features inclube a compact stash pocket and Sanitized Silver to resist body odor.

The all black, stretch cotton version of the Tadasana Pant comes with a silicon finish for a soft feel and is free of side seams for an flowing fit and added comfort. The most significant difference between the VPR and cotton version is in the physical weight of the pants which is worth note since the Tadasana pants do not have a draw string. Both versions are very comfy, however the stretch cotton is not as technical or a piece. So the stretch cotton may be more ideal for walkers or for post or pre run than for speed work or a long run.

All in all, The North Face Tadasana Tops and Bottoms are very eye catching and a very attractive take on a technically sound piece. Reasonably priced at $75.00 for the full zip-top, $65.00 for the technical VPR bottoms and $50.00 for the stretch cotton bottoms hurry in to try them on for yourself and checkout all our new spring styles from The North Face.
