Alexo Athletica has really cute clothing. I like their yoga pants and jackets a lot.
Not that we need jackets all that much in Florida but when I do need a jacket, I could see myself wearing this brands line. As I said it’s really cute.
Can you imagine out on the running trail or heading off to yoga class and wearing this outfit?
I can. But as cute as the Alexo Athletica brand is, it also serves a purpose. Alexo Athletica is the very first Active Carry wear.
From the website:
“Alexo will never back down from supporting a woman’s right to choose how she defends herself while striving to bring the best in fashionable, functional active carry-wear to the market.”
Now I know I’m going to open a can of worms here but many of you reading this already know that MacGyver and I own a little piece of land out in the middle of Florida somewhere and on that land we built our own shooting range. We own guns and we like to shoot them and I feel safer knowing that I have one for protection, should I ever need it. This doesn’t mean that I’m not in favor of stricter gun laws because I am. I am 100% in favor of stricter gun laws.
That being said, I think the pocket in my yoga pants is best used for a phone and my heavy duty pepper spray though I wont say I wouldn’t use it to hold my gun while out at my property and practicing at my range. I’m just not so sure I would ever feel comfortable running with a gun. I’d be afraid I’d accidentally shoot myself because I’m that clumsy.
That being said, I think it might be useful for say, trail running in remote areas or running in the mountains or deserts where there may be snakes. It might also come in handy running in Alaska or someplace where the danger of an animal such as a bear is a reality. Come to think of it, I’d probably use that gun pocket running anywhere around my remote property because we do have a lot of coyotes and rattlesnakes and other wildlife that could really mess a person up.
When I first saw the ad for this company my immediate feeling was that they will probably hear a lot of backlash. A lot. But I like the idea. Why not? For those of us who believe in the right to bear arms and those who actually have a carry permit, why not? That doesn’t mean I’m not interested in hearing other opinions though. I’m always curious about what other people think.
So let’s open the discussion.
What do you think of this active wear line?
Would you carry a weapon in the pocket or would you buy the clothes to carry other things, such as a phone in the pockets? (I think this is what I would mainly use them for but I’m all about big ass pockets in my active wear and that’s hard to come by.)
