One of the Best Active Brands Has New Running Shorts — and a Rare Sale
There are two things you need to know about Hill City right now.
Thing Zero: Okay, there are three things. Because first, if you’re unfamiliar with the company, you need to know that Hill City is a new active lifestyle brand — call it athleisure if you want — under Gap’s umbrella. It makes everything from workout apparel to trail-ready layers (including our editor’s pick for the best rain jacket of 2020).
Thing One: Here we go for real. Hill City just released a new running short called the 321 Short. The company worked with Robby Ketchell, an accomplished runner, former pro cyclist and one of the scientists on the team behind Eliud Kipchoge’s record-breaking sub-two-hour marathon feat.
The designers made the 321 Short super lightweight and airy, and gave it key features like a no-bounce phone pocket, another pocket for gels and a loop that holds your shirt should you need to ditch it after warming up. Sure, Hill City exacted these details with marathon distances in mind, but they work perfectly over short distances too. The new short, which is available in five- and seven-inch lengths, arrives just as running is seeing an uptick in participation since it’s one of the few responsible ways to exercise during this time of shelter-in-place protocols.
Thing Two: The new 321 Short, and everything else on Hill City’s website, is currently 15 percent off when you enter the code HCSAVE15 at checkout. It’s the first time the brand has offered such a discount. If you don’t plan on taking up running, it’s a great way to stock up on work from home clothing that looks as good as it is comfortable.
