I’ve been a big fan of a wide range of Columbia products for years now. Until recently, I was not aware of their growing line of sports bras. If you’re still reading this, chances are you’re a sports bra user, so let’s face it ladies, a good sports bra can make or break your workout (or daily routine!)

There’s nothing worse than a sports bra that rubs and chaffs. I find myself searching for the happy place between a bra that is too much material/too supportive and one that is light and breathable enough for running. For me, the other key factor in buying decisions relates to whether you can see certain lady anatomy through the clothing, as many of us can’t wear thin running sports bras for that reason.

Meet the Omni-Wick Ombre Racerback Sports Bra. The tag on this bra states “Warning: this innovative product will make you want to go outdoors and stay there.” I love it!

Product Materials

The bra material is a soft, high quality combination of nylon, polyester and spandex. It’s highly breathable, crafted with Omni-Wick advanced evaporation features. The bra has an elastic underband that stays in place well for added support. The garment is seamless and tag-less, but still provides ample support for light and medium level activities. The Ombre Racerback comes with cups that provide nipple protection but are also removable. The cups stayed in place well and looked natural in my experience. The racerback design was comfortable and didn’t add shoulder/neck stress compared to other sports bras that I’ve used.

Style

I’m a big fan of the three color options: Deep Periwinkle, Gull Gray and Fuschia. The Colombia logo is knit into the elastic underband. Dual-color lines taper from dark to light from the bottom to the top of the design, which is attractive and fun, but not too wild. This sports bra keeps it classy!

Performance with Running

Colombia has this sports bra in the medium-impact category. However, I tested it in everything from yoga and house chores to aggressive hill and trail running. The bra tag recommends the Ombre Racerback as medium support for activities like cycling, hiking, gym classes, and rock climbing. I found that it did a great job with running too (keep in mind that I am not large busted, so this may not be the case for everyone). If you’re large-chested and looking for a bra for racing or high impact, you could also look into Columbia’s line for their other options. If everyday training and low to medium impact are a priority, or you are smaller in bra size, you’ll probably be very satisfied with this bra. The Ombre Racerback bra quickly became my new favorite sports bra and I found myself wishing I had two when it was in the wash!
