Wahine Sport Shrug Review and Giveaway

I first became acquainted with Wahine Sport when Rachelle showed off the prize list for her 38th Birthday Virtual Race event on her blog Livin’ the Sweat Life.

While corresponding with Linda at Wahine Sport, I was given the opportunity to try out 2 of their garments… and I am so very excited to tell you about the first one today… it is a SHRUG, and it is the cutest, coolest little piece of clothing I have run across in quite some time.

I chose SERENE BLUE.  I love the color and the soft fabric.  Did you know WAHINE means WOMAN in Hawaiian?  And these garments are U.S. made, too.

It is more than arm sleeves, but not quite a sweater.  And the word SHRUG really describes it so well.  You can slip it on when you need some coverage, and shrug it off when you don’t.  It is lightweight, and wraps up into a small little bundle… that can easily be stowed in  purse or pack or gym bag…

or tied around your waist or shoulders.

It is a slim fitting garment that hugs your arms and shoulders with extra long sleeves that cover your hands… complete with stylish thumb holes.

This is the perfect carry along on Summer days that may turn into evenings… or to pull out of your yoga bag to put on while cooling down from class.  It makes a perfect cover up for tank tops, sports bras or even sun dresses.  It can take you from the beach to the mall or from the park to dinner.

The fabric is a soft and somewhat stretchy supplex nylon lycra – machine washable.   You can either hang it to dry, or put it in the dryer and tumble on low heat.  Either way it retains its shape nicely.

Wahine Sport offers the SHRUG in several colors and cute patterns so make sure you get over to their web site and see which one you would like for yourself… BECAUSE…

Linda has kindly and generously offered to give one to one of you!

And you can be located in Canada or the U.S.A.

    Ive been looking for something like this to go with my PATTERNED YMX one.
    off to buy :-)

  2. I love the colour you selected for your shrug. It suits you.

    I am drawn to "flower power"...this one is kind of unique and makes a bold statement. It would be totally not me, so I want this one if I win. Please and thanks

    My email address is

    Hmmm I must look into this thing called 'twitter'; and pintrest too!

  3. I like the apple green shrug!

  4. Ooooh! The black would be so versatile, but the flower power and serene blue are the ones I'm drawn to! I think I may have to get one of these!

  5. You look great Elle!! Perfect color choice:) Don't you just love it!

  6. I love the black shrug for more outfit options but I had to pin the flower power bc that print is just fun! Very cute shrugs!

  7. I would choose black. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway.


  8. I'll be boring and go with black, so I can pair it with everything!

  9. <--- winner winner chicken dinner!

  10. It's hard to resist basic blakc, but I love the blue you picked to.

  11. OH. MAH. GAH!!

    OBSESSED! Seriously!

    I would like one is every color -- but black will do to start! hahaha!!

    I don't know how I haven't heard of this company -- how exciting! Thank you for this opportunity!

  12. I love these! I'd love the flower power, but the black would probably be more versatile.

  13. I think I would go with the black, because it goes with anything. The flower power one is pretty cool, though.

  14. I love color, so I would pick the Green Apple!! I remember doing this with our shirts when I was a dancer growing up & find it so fun there is an actual sweater like this now. :)

  15. I think I'd go with flower power.

  16. I love black b/c it would go with everything! You look great in the blue!

  17. I would like the black one. I have a sort of shrug made from panty hose material. It would be great to have one that would be useful to keep me warm!

  18. I would get the black one! I can't remember is I posted which colour I wanted in the previous post.


Love it when you leave me a comment!
