I was sent the Infinite Geometry racing short and the Infinite Sun Bolero. I was most excited to try the Bolero.
First impressions right out of the packaging
- soft, soft material.
- really well constructed
- beautiful patterns
It also sports a UPF 50! Awesome. I was afraid I might get some chaffing with the Bolero on my run but I ran 12 miles in it without even a trace of irritation. I was hoping I would get to take it off and tie it around my waist, but it never got that warm out. Boo.
The shorts are maybe a little bit shorter than I would pick out. They have a three inch inseam. They also run a bit small, but I think a size up would have been a little big in the waist for me. Since it is still cold and snowy here, I still have not had a chance to run in them, but I have done workouts on the elliptical and ZWOWs in them and used them for pajamas.
I have long admired the YMX by Yellowman clothing, but never ponied up and bought any because of the price. The Boloero costs $68 and the shorts $86. Now I can see why people would. This stuff is awesome. YMX produces limited wearable works of art inspired from tattoo artwork seen around the globe.
I don't know what they do to their MadKool fabric but it is buttery soft. It wicks away sweat, doesn't wrinkle easily and dries fast. Also is supposed to be odor resistant. I can attest to my bolero not stinking after my 12 mile run...impressive!
I recieved these garments in exchange for a review on my blog. I was not compensated in any other way and was not obligated to give a favorable review.
