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).
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!
