Bio: I am 26 years of age, during my life I have participated in several sports that require a great deal of stamina & endurance. Some of those sports include wrestling, lacrosse, football, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Upon starting Brazilian jiu jitsu, I started training for competition. My average training week consists of 2-3 jiu jitsu classes per day 5x a week, 2 strength & conditioning sessions a week, and my own work outs, which consist of running &/or lifting 2x a week. Before using the training mask, I felt that I was in pretty good shape with descent cardio.
Review: 3 weeks ago I received a package from Kimura Wear; they sent me a gym bag & a pair of 2nd Skin Compression Pants to review. During the following weeks, I wore the compression pants during multiple daily trainings. These trainings include everything from No-Gi /Gi Jiu Jitsu to Running. During jiu jitsu training, the compression pants worked well with & without my kimono. When training No-Gi, mat burn was no longer an issue, the heavy duty yet comfortable material protected my knees from mat burn. While training in a kimono, the compression pants still allowed me to still move freely & feel comfortable.
My runs normally are in the early morning; even though I live in San Diego it is still pretty chilly in the morning. Normally, I would wear sweat pants to run but I feel that sweat pants add drag & can be heavy depending on the sweats. Running with Kimura Wears 2nd Skin Pants was great, not only did they keep me warm during my morning runs , but they also helped wick away the sweat from my body to allow my legs to stay warm to help prevent injury. I felt that the elasticity of the material added a little spring to my runs; with the elasticity returning my feet faster to the ground allowing me to run seconds faster.
Summary: Over the past 3 weeks, I have been wearing & training in Kimura Wear 2nd Skin Pants. The Heat Active Controlling System helped keep me cool under pressure. The Odor Bacteria Controlling System prevented my pants from smelling after not washing them for days to test it. I highly recommend Kimura Wear Compression Pants to anyone who wants a great pair of compression pants that can handle intense activities.
Special Thanks: I want to thank everyone at KimuraWear for the opportunity to conduct a review. I also want to thank Jeff for setting up the review & hope to work with in the future.
