Review: prAna Mariposa tank

Want to know a sure sign of spring? Nope, it’s not the return of the robins (although, I do love this!). Or a groundhog not seeing its shadow. It is me a buying a new climbing/yoga tank top to add to my collection! It has become a sort of ritual for me. This year, my latest lovely is the prAna Mariposa top. And it is lovely!

Back of prAna Mariposa

I usually go for the cute strappy-back tanks and this one definitely has this feature with a double criss-cross back. It also has a shelf bra, which is a must.

I tested this top out both practicing yoga and climbing at the gym. In both cases I found it to be very comfortable and well behaved! Meaning, my favorite thing about this top is the fact that it stays in place. It is made with Veeda fabric which consists of 45% recycled spun polyester/45% spun polyester and 10% spandex. Sometimes I find that my yoga and climbing tops have too much stretch in them and it is like pulling on a rubber band to get it to stay over the tops of my pants- and it stays for a while, but tends to creep up. Not so with this top, I didn’t have to pull it back down once. And it is silky smooth to the touch.

Mariposa is featured in Plum, Waterfall (both shown), and Black. It retails for $65. For more information visit prAna.

Pretty in the front too!
