DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT GET SPONSORED IN ANY WAY, FELT IT WAS NECESSARY TO TELL THIS AS I SEE A LOT OF DISCUSSIONS GOING ON AT BLOGS ABOUT THIS TOPIC
Today I’d like to tell you about some gear I discovered about a year ago.
Kickstarter is a site I like to browse looking for innovative gadgets and I stumbled on the Tribesports clothing.
They already had a community build out and now wanted to start a clothing line.
Usually I spend as little as possible for my workout clothing, but now I was intrigued.
It looked well and the science behind it made sense.
The Kickstarter pack existed from a Longsleeve and a 5″ short.
It took a while untill it arrived (as it always goes with Kickstarter), but it arrived in time for the summer months.
That meant I used the short a lot. It’s a rather short short in which I run ‘commando’ and I must say it supports everything quite well and no shaving whatsoever.
The wicking is everything as you would expect and the little pocket is just big enough to hold my door key.
I’d give it a 4/5.
As far as the longsleeve goes, it’s an ideal in-between-seasons top layer and the go-to race shirt in winter.
This is a piece I couldn’t do without. If it wears out I’m sure to buy another.
It fits nicely around my chest, wicks the sweat extremely well, even when I’m wearing my camelbak and provides just enough warmth when the thermometer starts dropping.
I’m sure to give it a 5/5 and would recommend it to all.
Since the Kickstarter project they have a full-blown online shop (see link above) and I purchased 2 singlets and a T-shirt as well. All three are everything I expected from them and in the same line as the long sleeve.
For the Parkrun lovers: Tribesports partnered up with parkrun recently: read about it here.
Lastly I’d like to advice to wait, ‘Join The Tribe‘ or use my referral if you’re inclined to buy something. They do loads of actions, so paying the full price is really not necessary.
