  • What are the benefits of wearing this range when training? On busy days I can find myself in the same gym gear I worked out in hours earlier and the quick drying, moisture wicking Merino fabric keeps me dry, comfortable and free from nasty odors that regular dry-fit fabrics do.
  • How does this enhance your workout? and post workout? I am more comfortable during my workout and post-workout I don’t have to freak out that I am stinking up the local juice bar when I stop in to grab a drink or lunch!
