Finally, over this past weekend, I got back in the swing of things and into my training, most specifically, running regiment.
Upon doing so, I decided I would give an up and coming companies products a try. The company, Kinisi Athletik, the product, performance wear featuring Active Cotton and The Lock.
Kinisi Athletik can put into words much better what their Active Cotton and The Lock are about. Please check out their website at the link above to get their description of both their Active Cotton products, and the Lock, and to check out their complete line of products for both men and women alike. Also, they have a great video showing the difference between some wicking materials, and their Active Cotton material. It is amazing to watch.
A while ago, I was fortunate enough to be contacted by Kinisi Athletik about my interest is trying out their product, most specifically, their Active Cotton T-Shirt and their Lock compression short. After having a chance to run in these, I am glad I was given this opportunity.
These products are amazing, and for any runner out there, let me say that these shirts might be the most comfortable I’ve worn while running, and their Lock compression short was truly amazing in both compression and feel.
The very first thing I noticed about the shirt was how soft the feel was of the shirt both inside and out. When I put it on, it only got better. It was so comfortable, I could not wait to start running with it on. Once I did start running, it only made my appreciation of the shirt that much stronger. Like other shirts I’ve worn that wick away moisture when in use, this does, however, it is so much better. With other shirts, once you start to sweat, they do absorb the moisture; however, they tend to keep the moisture close to your body, and can stick and at times feel uncomfortable or even rub due to the material sticking to your body. With the Kinisi Athletik Active Cotton shirt, I felt absolutely none of that, in fact, the shirt itself was not even wet with the moisture from my sweat. After a 45 minute run, the shirt was exactly the same as it was when I first put it on, dry both against my body and on the outside where the shirt was visible to anyone. It was 70 degrees outside, so to say I wasn’t sweating when I was running would be a false statement. My head and face were dripping with sweat. My torso was as dry as when I started. Another great thing, we all know that we can get a little “gamey” after a workout, and there was absolutely no odor of sweat or that “gamey” smell after I finished running. It was unreal!!
While on my run, the shirt just got more amazing. It kept me cool throughout my entire run, which kept me refreshed and relaxed. It was very enjoyable to not have the shirt sticking to me.
As for the Lock compression shorts, they too were also amazing. I’ve worn several brands of compression shorts, but most can make you feel restricted in certain areas. These did not. As the Lock compression shorts were nice and snug around my legs, they didn’t squeeze them to the point they didn’t feel like they could move. It was a great combination of fit and flexibility so to say. On my run, my legs felt the best they had felt in a long time while on a run, and this is after a 3+ week hiatus from running. No soreness, no twinge of discomfort, and after my run, it was great because I felt just as good when I finished as I did when I started. Usually, I have some soreness and need to do some extra stretching after I finish, and I didn’t have the need for it.
