than you also have the issue of their apparel quality which is the worst i have seen. every t-shirt i bought from them was ruined within weeks while every shirt i got from someone like Rogue was half the price and lasts me years.

sorry for the vent

Re: Nike Metcon

I got one Reebok CF T-shirt as a gift and can agree to the quality of them. I also have a pair of their compression shorts (that I also got as gift) and they have actually held up pretty good.

I used to wear NR MX20's but they got chewed up doing rope climbs so I got a pair of nano 2.0's and they held up fairly well. So much so that i bought a pair of 3.0's which are ok but not i do not like them as much.

As far as I am concerned their lifting shoes are comical, and I wouldn't buy them. For actual lifting I prefer my lifting shoes. I f am doing a session with mixed work then I just wear my Nano's

Like I said, I have almost always worn Nike so I am looking forward to having a solid alternative to the nano. My wife too. Sh, like me was a big fan of the Nike Free, I just found them to be a little too squishy for CF.

To be fair, Rogue doesn't make shirts...they use American Apparel blanks for their t-shirts.

But I know what you mean with Reebok stuff...I got frustrated on their shorts. The L are unwearably tight on me, the XL waist is too loose and doesn't cinch tight enough...so basically I can't wear any of their crossfit shorts. Then they came out with the Slim, so I buy those and it's the same thing, just slightly tighter waist on the XL. Still can't wear them. Going with Hylete.

You are right,I meant the american apparel shirts which are the best. And yes on the Reebok sizing, even weirder is that the same issue is also in their shoes. I bought two pairs of nano 4.0 both size 12. One was too small and one was too big..

Sigh. Do we want to go down to the actual worker's name in the sweatshop?

I was saying that Rogue shirts say American Apparel on the tag. And in this case, Reebok shirts say Reebok on the tag. If you want to want to trace down to the sweatshop level, have fun.
