First Impressions: Zoic

It sure is nice to see more and more companies catering to the commuter women. Some time back Zoic sent me a little ensemble from their Streetside collection to test out on the roads. I had to wait for it to warm up a bit around here, but sunny days are back and so are my skirts! Yea! I was really blown away when I heard about this company. I love the whole earth friendly clothing line they have here. Zoic has been known for their mountain biking clothing lines, but now make clothing for the ladies that commute or just love to ride their bikes everywhere!

First is the Zoic Namaste Hoody:

I cannot express enough how GOooodd this feels on the skin. Immediately I was impressed with the feel and loose fit of this hoody. Very comfy. I have received lots of compliments on this hoody. And my favorite part about this hoody is the materials it’s made from. 62% poly, 12% spandex and 26% Bamboo charcoal. How cool is that? Bamboo!!!

I also received the Zoic Streetside Damsel Skirt:

I love how feminine and fun this skirt is. Also very practical with the removable short liner. The material is a nylon/spandex combo.

I am testing out the Cuello Tee also.

This is a really functional tee that pairs well with the damsel skirt and hoody. Perfect for a casual ride and trip to the store.

And last but not least, some sweet socks:
The womens Dazzle Socks!

These are super cute and let me just say one thing: arch support. It’s a beautiful thing!

I love how nice everything coordinated together and am looking forward to getting some wear out of these items! I’ll have my full review up in a couple of weeks. In the meantime check out some of their other adorable pieces at Zoic.com.

    I bought a pair of Zoic MTB shorts a couple of years ago. I bought my regular size, which is medium. I’m not fat, and have a 32 inch waist. They did not fit. Way too small. So small I couldn’t get them any higher than my butt. Zoic apparently sizes men’s clothing for starving Italians. Just a heads up for the guys….

    That’s a snazzy looking hoodie — the pea green color is bright without being overpowering, like so much other women’s-specific cycling gear.

    I can’t imagine that most women appreciate cutesy images or flowers all over everything, so it is nice to see Zoic making some understated, classy gear.

    I had the same issue, Mike.

    Priscilla, did the woman’s sizing seem pretty accurate?

    Well so far my tops were a perfect fit. The bottoms were a little smaller than I prefer but part of that is the style of the skirt. I am working on the review and will make sure to ask my peeps over there about it.

    Mmmmm….short skirts. Drool.

    Ghost, you won’t be saying that if RL loses his bet….

    Oh, yeah…you’re right. I don’t want to see RL OR Vince in a short skirt!!!

    Thanks. I’m looking at those All Night Long Shorts for my wife’s birthday. Zoic’s site says they’re out of stock, so I’ll see if I can find a retailer with ’em stocked.
