Hello and welcome! On this blog, you will find shopping guides, comparisons, and reviews. We are a husband and wife team who enjoy hunting for the best gear (and deals). We research and compare products, so you don’t have to! Want to know more about why this website exists? Read on.

It began with a humble quest…

A few years ago, I was on a mission to upgrade my activewear.

Now I don’t know about you, but I am the kind of person who likes to do a lot of research before making a purchase. So I fired up the old search engine and started a few web searches.

I was VERY overwhelmed with the amount of workout clothing options available! I was also unsure if quality was equal to price tag, so I started a long period of reading tons of reviews and then buying-and-testing various brands. 

What did I learn?

Although I am a big fan of the premium activewear brands (Lululemon, Athleta, Alo Yoga, Outdoor Voices), I also found there are surprisingly good options at a much lesser price point. You truly don’t need to break the bank in order to get activewear that’s decent quality and also aesthetically pleasing. 

I was so excited to find inexpensive yet similar styles for the more expensive brands, and I started sharing these finds with friends and family. 

Before too long, someone suggested I make a blog with the information I had compiled on various brands and how they compare. Shoppycat was born. 🙂  

In full transparency, I use affiliate links for Amazon items, which helps me pay for the website hosting and resources to run this site. If you click a link and purchase something through my site, I am VERY grateful and thank you for your help and support! 

I genuinely hope you find the information on this site useful, and that it helps you make more informed purchases. I promise to always try my hardest to find the best deals on pieces that meet a certain quality threshold, and never to link to items that I would not purchase myself. 

Happy shopping, my friends!
