The Gotham SeaCell Running Hoodie and Tights from Rhone boast a straightforward and sustainable design suited to active men. What makes the set of activewear so unique is the fact that it's made from a blend of Tactel, Modal, Spandex and Seacell, which is a combination of a cellulose-based fiber and Icelandic seaweed. The entirety of this activewear set is made from renewable raw materials, which has its benefits for both people and the planet.

In addition to being soft and breathable, this material is also said to have anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to transfer calcium, magnesium, vitamin E and other nutrients to the skin.

To complete the design, Rhone uses subtle reflective tape strips, which turn from black to silver for safety purposes when exposed to light during early morning or late night runs.
