We got this outfit for Ashley the year it came out. Though the colors are rather...bold, it works for a regular exercise/sport outfit, too, if you get rid of the harness and shoes.
The jacket - I love fleece sweaters on AG, for some reason. This one seems sturdier, it hasn't pilled as much as some of the other fleece pieces. Edged in orange piping, it zips up the front with a red plastic zipper. There's a patch on the front with a mountain and the letters "AG". Nice all around, and Ashley loves red, so that's a bonus. A
The tank - as SailAway said, the tank is a simple shell made of spandex. It gets extra embellishment with red chain-stitching up the front. It velcros up the back with the thinner velcro, but it still tends to snag the fabric. Also, some might consider the bright orange rather garish. B
The shorts - these are a nice, athletic pair of stretchy biking shorts. These are thicker than the tank top and pull on with elastic. They look even sportier because of the orange and silver trimming. A
The shoes - though the flat, slick soles tend to designate these as specifically "rock-climbing" shoes, if you aren't really too particular you could disguise these as a pair of sneakers, too. The uppers of these shoes appear to be real suede dyed purple, lacing up with flat black laces. I think they are really cute. A
The ponytail holders - generic little hair elastics in bright red to match the jacket. They don't have a ton of stretch and one of them broke on my sister. B-
The harness & chalk bag- this is such a cool, unique piece! It consists of wide, woven, black nylon straps. They are decorated with designs in fabric paint which looks like some doofusy touch there would be at camp or a rock-climbing place. It goes on easily, with the help of a set of instructions that were included. The three metal carabiners are nice, I think ours were silver, pink and purple. A+ for accuracy. The chalk bag is a tiny little drawstring pouch made of slippery red nylon: B.
