First Look! Seawheeze 2018 Showcase Store Merchandise

by Cristina

Check out the Seawheeze 2018 Showcase Store Merch! These photos are provided by OG Lululemon fan, Ms. A. I would have loved to have gone this year but just couldn’t make it happen. My favorite part of Seawheeze weekend is always meeting up with old friends. Luckily I did get to do that this year so I feel like I had a little bit of seawheeze excitement. Click here to view all of my previous years Seawheeze posts. They go back all the way to the very first Seawheeze in 2012. I’ve run most years and reported about Seawheeze every single year. This is the first year ever that I’ve not gone to the showcase store. I was reminiscing with Lulu Addict yesterday over dinner that my first year at the Seawheeze Showcase store I was pushing a double stroller with a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old. That was before the insanity of camping out overnight, and the out of control resale. 

I’m looking forward to running it next year, and hopefully, by then they will be back to hosting it in August when the weather is better, and they will have ironed out logistics issues they’ve had this year. It’s really unfortunate that the new bracelet process and lottery for the store was a necessary step this year. If you are still traveling into Vancouver, rest assured that I was just informed (as of 12 pm) that there are lots of prints and items still available, and even reflective backpacks and men’s reflective jackets

Are you running Seawheeze tomorrow? Good luck to all the runners and have a fabulous run! I’d love to know in the comments how your weekend is going, and what you thought of this years merchandise.

Ugghhh having major FOMO right now!

I want that green 1/2 zip swiftly and the swirly pants in the 6th photo from the bottom (I’m assuming they’re speed up tights)

I know I really love that green 1/2 zip. I was having major FOMO too but my friend so kindly kept me in the loop with the excitement.

I’m with you this is some of the ugliest seawheeze items I’ve seen. I like crazy patterns but there is something about this collection (and frankly the last year’s ) patterns that just don’t work for me. The color combinations clash in an odd way.

Well everything except coral floral sold out in first 30 minutes so most don’ t share same view lol. Thank goodness we all have different tastes… Though i typically dont bash prints im not fond of because i know others like them and it just doesnt seem nice. I love the colours and patterns…fun fun fun.

ITs called OPINIONS not bashing. Everyone is entitled to their feelings and opinions. Doesn’t hurt my feelings at all. I love this year’s print and colors and doesn’t bother me that others “bash” on this stuff.

Lol. I choose to not make comments aka OPINIONS on how ugly a print is because I know others may like it. But that is me… If I dont like a print I just dont comment but that is just me. I also dont want to be seen as a hater… But again I prefer to be nice…my preference and my opinion too. If i want to offer my negative opinion I may add how they may have made the print better or what they could have done differently. Again just me and my opionion.

They’re clothes. It’s not personal. If people are sensitive about it, they need to get a life.

There are some pieces there that look fun! I’m not digging the crazy, multi colored print, but I’m loving the green/purple combo, the black and white wave print, the Vancouver Vibes stuff, and I even think the pink floral would be cute in a bra or short.

Thanks for keeping us the rest of us non-runners posted!! The showcase store was on my mind as I drove my kids to school early this morning.

It’s fun to see the photos. I’m just thankful that there’s nothing I really want. ?

I went in 2nd wave and did not get the swiftly zip in the green nor the light blue. I did get the checkerboard tights and bra and shorts. I was surprised that in 2nd wave that those items were sold out already… The floral/coral print did not sell well. But all other prints pretty much cleared out. I too missed out on reflective shorts and tights…all gone. They increased to 5 items…why when there was enough for first wave only? Lots of people hoarding piles of stuff…from first wave.. They werent parting with any while i hovered waiting… I did get some of the 148 tights but i had preferred the 108 speed ups…cheaper ones gone in first wave too. Was a crazy experience. But i am enjoying the overall vibe despite the drizzle. Thank goodness i did not buy tuesday upload stuff for several weeks….spent 1200 today…yikes and i refrained from buying 400 jacket!

In my opinion the best year of design was 2012. Everything else was just all over the place and mostly ugly. I wasn’t there this year, sadly I couldn’t make it work either. Next year though hopefully. I miss the vibe, couldn’t care much about the shopping bit – although fun at times! 🙂 Mostly miss seeing my pals and just making good memories in a beautiful city.

I really liked the designs in 2014. I still want a few of the items I didn’t/couldn’t buy from that year.

That purple swiftly tank is beautiful! Everything else is ugly.

If you want a laugh or a cry, check out eBay for the latest gear. Only $800 for those reflective tights!

They sure are giving the Pack It Up Jacket a lot of mileage with lots of colours and prints available in and outside of seawheeze. I don’t mind the prints but would never buy them. What I do like is how these jackets are lined in a complimentary colour which the ones in store and online are not. I would love the l/s blue swiftly with red zip shown I saw in the videos.

Like the purple swiftly and *maybe* the reflective hat but had I gone this year, with this stuff, I wouldn’t have bought more than that. I don’t like any of it and definitely do not have any FOMO this year.

Loved all the gear this year 🙂 This year was definitely one of my favorite years!
To each his or her own!

Can anyone comment on Swiftlies and sizing lately? I keep reading they are running very small. I generally wear a size 8 so I am guessing a 10, but do they really run that small? Really love the yellow and purple for this year’s gear, wish they put out more of these colors!

I have the purple seawheeze swiftly tank and it fits TTS. I had ordered the orange striped swiftly tank from the online Seawheeze store and found that it ran small. I personally find that sizing for a swiftly has always been a bit inconsistent.

Super ugly. Looks like rejects from a kid’s clothing line that nobody bought.
