Back in October, yes October, I received an email from Joie at YMX By Yellowman Clothing about a great opportunity! I had a chance to pick out one of the many and I mean tons, of items that they sell, try it out and do a review. I have never heard of YMX before but once I looked at their line I jumped at the chance! Their clothing line is where art meets athletics. Think of the most beautiful full body tattoo and create functional athletic wear.
This is what their site states:
YMX activewear provides performance enhancing elements to all sports enthusiasts for an exceptional workout experience. The superior quality, comfort, and unique tattoo patterns are key ingredients of YMX’s extraordinary performance and visual appeal. MadKool® high-tech fabrics increase the performance of athletes when engaged in heavy workouts and extreme sports. Another big advantage of MadKool® is that it keeps you dry throughout the toughest workouts because the moisture-wicking fabric dries super-fast. YMX’s activewear apparel monitors your body heat to keep you warm in the cold, and cool in extreme heat. With superb MadKool® UV protection, you can challenge yourself in the most unwelcoming outdoor environments
After much consideration I picked the Amethyst Essential Henna Racerback tank.
When I opened the package the first thing I noticed that it was that it looked better in person than on the website. The second thing I noticed was that it is so light. This made me a little nervous because I am a beast when it comes to the treatment of my clothes. I don’t have time to be messing around with anything. I was pleasantly surprised when I put it on and it STRETCHED to conform to my body! Let me tell you it really did need to stretch too unfortunately.
I decided on a very cold afternoon to wear it on my first treadmill run!
What I loved:
Like I said, it conformed nicely to my body without ripping apart. It wicked away the sweat and left me feeling dry. Also, in the back there is this cool pocket that is big enough to fit an IPod or the smaller IPhone.
I like to pick racer back tanks because they seem to fit better. I hate it when the straps of my tanks (or bras) slip off my shoulder.
What I didn’t love:
Really, not much. The only thing that I didn’t like was that the bottom of the tank kept slipping up instead of staying put. I kept having to pull it down during my run and that was a pain. However, this problem really is on me to lose some weight. I can’t fault the tank for that. I will write a follow up once this does happen.
Overall I rate this tank a 10 because of the look, feel, and functionality of it. I would definitely purchase something else like maybe a t-shirt. I recommend checking out YMX Clothing by Yellowman!
