YMX Tribal Sea Running Tee Review and Giveaway!

ymxlogo

YMX contacted me last month asking me if I would like to review their Tribal Sea Running Tee.  Well, I had never heard of YMX so I headed over to their website to do a little research before I replied… of course once I saw the Tribal Sea Running Tee, the fun print and colors had me right away… but the more I saw about YMX, the more I just had to do this review. 

They have all sorts of gear, not just for running; they have gear for cycling, skiing, yoga, and running! For men AND women!  Their apparel is tattoo inspired and brightly colored…
fun for anyone! :)

Here’s a little about YMX from their website:

YMX (acronym for YellowMan Expression) was launched in 2009 as an extension of the original, high-end tattoo clothing brand, YellowMan (founded in 2004). Built on an extensive library of original tattoo artwork collected around the globe, YellowMan offers collectible, limited wearable art prints. YMX was created to offer an alternative to YellowMan in a broader, commercial market, while still preserving the authenticity of its origins.

YMX offers multifunctional garments that bridge the gap between athletic and fashion garments. Featuring high-comfort, lightweight MadKool fabrics and detailed, original prints, YMX garments can be worn for athletic use, or for casual wear. As a matter of fact, because of the moisture-wicking properties of the fabric, many people wear YMX in both active and leisure activities without having to change!

The Tribal Sea Running Tee (which retails for $69) is not just for running, this sport tee offers beautiful tribal art, moisture wicking fabric, UPF 50+ sun protection, and silky-soft comfort.

I received the size small and a pair of arm warmers (which I didn’t get to test due to HOT weather)  Something that I liked was that instead of a sticker, they sent a paper circle with wildflower seeds in it as advertisement… going green :)

I got to test the tee out twice… Once was a treadmill run followed by AbRipperX (indoors), and the second time was for a 90 degree 5k race (outdoors).

and everything to do with how hot is was lol ;)

Things I liked about the Tribal Sea Running Tee:

1. It is super light weight and silky to the touch (I kinda want to wear it for everyday clothes)
2. The fit is flattering
3. It is SO SO SO comfortable to wear!
4. The colors are bright and the design is fun
5. I LOVE the sweat wicking material, it dries super duper fast
6. After washing it a few times it doesn’t seem to have lost any of it’s brightness
7. CHAFE free!!! :)
8. There is a pocket in the back that is big enough for a GU

The ONLY thing I didn’t like about this shirt was that the cool pocket in the back never seemed to dry fast enough and it was kind of uncomfortable to have a wet patch rubbing your back after you workout/run… cuz if you’re like me, you don't change your clothes right afterwards and bless everyone with your fragrant beauty lol ;)  BUT… if you’re normal and shower right after you run/workout, this shouldn’t be a problem for you. Also, I’m cheap (college student and recent newlywed) and probably wouldn’t pay $69 for just ONE running shirt… So the price is a bit much for me too.
My husband always says though “You get what you pay for!”
(Don’t tell him I said so, but he usually is right about a lot of things… including that) ;)

I also noticed that in some ALL of my race pictures that the shirt was riding up and showing some skin off… This really didn’t qualify (to me) as a problem though, because 1) it helps cool you down and 2) You really don’t notice it because its not uncomfortable.

The Tribal Sea Running Tee really has become one of my top 2 favorite running shirts… no joke!  I LOVE it!! Thank you YMX for letting me do this review for you!

  37. With workout apparel, I like good prices, but I also want it to last through lots of workouts and washings. Also, sweat wicking is really great too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Price is so important cause gear can get pricey! Comfort is huge as well..the way I look typically falls to the bottom of my priority list :)

  43. When I'm buying running clothes I look for things that are comfortable and don't ride up! Value is the most important-- I'm willing to pay more for something that will hold up. I also like to find things that are easy to layer.

  44. A new follower from the hungry runner girl!

  45. I love the tribal sea running tee and the fact that it has matching arm warmers!!

  48. When shopping for running clothes I definitely pay attention to comfort and price. Because I hate doing laundry and I like variety in my running clothes, I can't afford luxury brands that I'd die to wear--so I really only buy it if it is on sale. And because I want to love running--I'm not going to buy clothes that will a) sit in my closet unused or b) make me extremely uncomfortable while exercising (chaffing, wedgie-picking, etc)

  49. Entry 2: I love the pink version of the tee you reviewed and also love love love the winter fire coral tank top!

  52. Entry 5: I followed you too! @ScallywagSprint

    ReplyDelete
  53. Entry 7: In running apparel I look for comfort but also for it to be flattering- I already have to jiggle and sweat outside in front of The Whole World so I want cute colours that match, a streamlined fit, nothing that clings to my (ahem) 'unwanted curvature'. I also would prefer they werent extortionate! I also quite like sassy running gear, sounds odd but I have a tee that says 'move your ass' on it which I love (its Nike). Theres also an add from the nike goddess 5k that says 'runnings a pain in the ass. But it sure gives me a nice one!' ha ha x

  54. I loved all the bright colors and also that they looked like normal shirts. Sometimes I don't have the option of changing right away after a work out. Also I started following you on twitter and this blog!

  56. When I buy workout wear I always check price (law school books are expensive lol). But comfort definitely follows second.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I checked out the YMX website and I love the leggings with the colorful graphic prints on them. Great for fall running.

  60. I like the winter red flower legging - would look great on my runs!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I liked YMX by YellowMan on Facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love the YMX by YellowMan use of colors and patterns!

    ReplyDelete
  63. When buying running clothes, comfort is first for me. Then I look at color. The brighter, the better!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Entry 2: After looking at YMX's site, I absolutely love the Henna Bloom II Turtleneck. The flowers on the hips and arms remind me of the tattoo I have on my foot. I have a blue cherry blossom because it reminds me to change the things in my life that I don't like, and to never let anything keep me in a place of unhappiness. I think this top is adorable, and I might just order it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like their arm warmers!! They look AWESOME!

    ReplyDelete
  66. I always consider everything - if it's too expensive I probably won't buy it, but I'm not going to wear something that is ugly or uncomfortable just because it's cheap!

  72. when I buy workout clothes first I look for fabric that whisks away moisture because I hate feeling soggy :)
    next for comfort and of course the price which is the main seller. I try to go to discount malls that have last years colors for a great price lol.

    ReplyDelete
  73. when I buy running apparel i look for something comfy that is dri-fit and is not going to chaf. i always look for pockets and make sure there ia place for my ipod and shot bloks!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I like the winter flower, but in a tee, I am not much of a tank fan...chicken arms LOL
