2015 Sea Wheeze Half Marathon Race Weekend Recap, Part 2: The Merchandise
I think most people liked 2014's merchandise better than this year, though the bug print items were popular. I know I spent less this year at the expo than last year. The green cool racerback and the bug backpack were probably the most popular items, though the Miss Misty jackets and the Tuck N Flows sold out quickly, too. Most items had a print on them so it made mixing and matching a challenge. Lululemon sold through $1.8M worth of merchandise. Rumor is, via the Australia/New Zealand Instagram page, the Sea Wheeze collection will not be offered to Australia this year.
The following contains a comprehensive catalog of what was for sale. Where I didn't have personal photos of items, I used photos from eBay listings.
|Portapottie Cool Racerback|
|Jeweled Magenta and and Orange whose color code is ROCT. I'm dying to know what orange this is.|
There were seven Cool Racerback designs. They were made of light luon instead of luxtreme this year. I think most people really liked the change to light luon.
There were two Scubas, a black and white print and a gray print. I thought the black and white was very similar to last year's and not nearly as distinctive. I tried the gray one on but felt it was on the blah side, though my sister did get it.
There were three styles of Passion II crops.
There were two versions of Speed Tights. I got my niece the black and white ones.
I believe there were only four colors in the Tracker Shorts. There were a lot of the blue with orange squiggles left at the end of the day.
There were eight designs of Speed Shorts. There were a lot of the blue with orange squiggles leftover at the end of the day.
There were four colors in the Stuff Your Bra.
There were two versions of the Take 2 Bra.
There were four Pace Rival skirt designs.
There were three What the Sport Short styles.
There were three long sleeve Swiftly colors.
There were three short sleeve swiftly colors. I got the Jeweled Magenta pink one.
There were three Swiftly tank colors. I thought the green was the prettiest of the three and kind of regret not getting it now.
I can only find two colors of the What the Sport Singlet. I swear I thought there was a white one, too.
There were four versions of the Stash It Tank.
There were two versions of the Race To Win hat. There were a lot of pink hats left at the end of the day.
There were two versions of the Fast Paced Run visor. These sold out by the end of the day, I believe.
Fellow Sea Wheezers, what did you think of this year's merchandise? What would you like to see for next year? I know I was hoping for the Downtime Jacket again but I have become a fan of the Miss Misty jacket. I also would like a rulu or brushed luxtreme Half Zip instead of the Tuck N Flow. I also like the Bound Bra better than the Stuff Your Bra, though I know lots of people love the Stuff Your Bra. I like that they had more than one bag style and I would love it if they had a smaller bag, like the Festival or Diversity bag, also. I definitely appreciate the switch to light luon Cool Racerbacks this year.
