Over the last couple of months I have used gear I received through the use of the Mercury Mile shopping service. To explain how Mercury Mile works, I created the following video:
After having received my personalized box, I decided to keep the two running shirts they sent me as I absolutely loved the look and feel of the material on both of them.
I have used these shirts quite a bit since receiving them, as they are both versatile in look and feel in that they can be used and worn not just for running, but also as a nicer top for casual dress activities.
Another neat and valuable aspect with this service was finding out about the Craft brand. This is a high-quality shirt by a brand I wasn't even aware that existed had it not been for the stylist at Mercury Mile selecting it and including it on my box.
I returned the other 3 items (2 shorts and a jacket) not because I didn't like them, but because they were either extremely similar to other items I already own and because the size just wasn't quite right (jacket). However, I have coordinated about that through email with the stylist assigned to me, and expect my second box to arrive later this week with revised items that we both believe will be sure winners just like the two shirts on the first box were.
With the first box, I was only charged for the two shirts I decided to keep since I returned the remaining gear within the 7-day period allowed.
In conclusion, my experience has been quite positive all-around. Completing my profile on the Mercury Mile website was easy and only took a few minutes. My personalized box was delivered in a timely manner, contained high-quality items that I liked, and the return system worked as promised. I have gotten quite a bit of use on the items I decided to keep and am already looking forward to my second box to arrive in just a few days. I definitely call that a success and can confidently recommend you look into this service.
