Bamboo makes better workout wear than any other type of fabric on the market today. It makes you stay cooler and fresher for longer, and is really comfortable to wear, even after a long, sweaty workout.
Bamboo Workout Wear Leaves You Cool and Fresh
Bamboo workout wear is highly ABSORBENT and MOISTURE WICKING. Cotton, for example, is highly absorbent, too - although 40% less than bamboo - but it isn’t moisture wicking. A fabric with wicking properties means that the fabric has the ability to draw moisture to its surface. Cotton, therefore, can absorb sweat, but it then stays there until the material simply cannot absorb any more moisture. Bamboo fabrics, in contrast, wick the moisture away to its surface. This is important because at the surface of the fabric, evaporation can happen. This means that as bamboo fabric absorbs moisture, it is also releasing it into the air.
Other materials like rayon and polyester also have wicking properties, but not as good as bamboo. Plus, they are not absorptive so your sweat can get trapped inside on your skin until some of it evaporates - which takes a while if you sweat a lot. This leaves the synthetic fabric stuck to your skin.
As you work out, you sweat, and this can leave you feeling wet and musky. Bamboo workout wear quickly absorbs your sweat and pulls it away from your body. It then releases this moisture into the air so it can evaporate, leaving you dry. This means that you stay cool and fresh throughout your workout, no matter how much you sweat. You won’t feel uncomfortable, and you can actually enjoy getting more exercise.
Bamboo workout wear is also highly BREATHABLE. This is due to the tiny holes that characterize a bamboo weave in fabrics. (These holes also enhance its moisture wicking properties.)
A breathable fabric allows air to flow through it, keeping you cool as you work out.
Bamboo Workout Wear is Extremely Comfortable
Apart from keeping you cool and fresh, bamboo workout wear is also extremely COMFORTABLE.
Bamboo fabric has greater elasticity than cotton, so you won’t feel strained as you move around. Bamboo fabric is also very SOFT. It may cause slightly more friction than cotton - about 1-2% - but its softness more than makes up for this almost undetectable amount. Bamboo feels almost like silk against the skin. This means that there’s less of a chance of experiencing skin irritation even after a vigorous workout.
The antibacterial / antifungal properties of bamboo also help in this area. Even as you tumble around and sweat in the gym, bamboo workout wear keeps you safe from germs. Bamboo kun is a natural compound produced by the bamboo plant itself as an agent against pests and enemy growths. Mechanically retted bamboo fibres used to make bamboo workout wear retain this compound. Gyms are not the most sanitary of places, so you need bamboo workout wear to shield you from harmful germs.
These top qualities of bamboo workout wear are enough to convince the most avid exercise enthusiasts to make the switch. But that’s not all that bamboo workout wear has to offer. Since bamboo fabric has great drapability, it also makes for very attractive outfits. Bamboo cloth can be dyed just like other types of cloth, too, so you can get it in a wide range of colors.
