YMX - Tribal Sea Run Tee - Review/Giveaway

I was contacted by  YMX to see if I would do a review for their Tribal Sea Run Tee .  I hadn't heard of this company before, so I went to their website to check  them out.   The first thing I noticed was the bright and bold colors on their clothing, along with the  amazing artwork.

 About YMX(source)
YellowMan founder, Peter Mui, started the concept of YellowMan under that premise that skin color should never be a barrier against social status. He should know. Chinese blood, and Oklahoma native, his identity breaks all the usual cultural stereotypes. He's true to all dimensions of his identity, proudly exuding his Chinese heritage on one side and down-home country singer on the other. Tall, broad-shouldered, and overflowing with confidence, Peter Mui can not be packaged into any preconceived category.

 Understanding  the value of tattoo art as a vehicle to represent cross-cultural attitudes, Peter Mui pursued the concept of creating wearable tattoo art.

YMX offers multifunctional garments that bridge the gap between athletic and fashion garments. Featuring high-comfort, lightweight MadKool fabrics and detailed, original prints, YMX garments can be worn for athletic use, or for casual wear. As a matter of fact, because of the moisture-wicking properties of the fabric, many people wear YMX in both active and leisure activities without having to change!


YMX also sent me the arm warmers that match the Tribal Sea Run Tee.  I have never worn a pair of arm warmer. So imagine my surprise when I opened up the package. I normally wear a tank with a long sleeve shirt over it, that way I can take it off when I start getting hot.  I cant wait for cooler weather so I can give these babies a try. 


Their is also a pocket on the back of this shirt for your I Pod, keys, Gu, or whatever else you might want to carry.





The fabric YMX uses is MadKool  fabric (source)
MadKool® technical fabrics enhance the athletic performance of the people who wear it. MadKool® efficiently moves sweat away from the body to the outer layer of the fabric, where it dries faster than with other fabrics.

In addition, MadKool® fabrics regulate your natural body temperature so you will stay warm in cool weather activities, and cool when your heart is pumping.

Some MadKool® fabrics, such as those used in YMX cycling jerseys, offer UV protection so you can wear them on your next outdoor excursion without having to worry about exposure to the sun's harmful rays.

MadKool® fabrics have a lot of stretch, hold their shape and are abrasion resistant. Although they feel delicate, they aren't. Wear YMX garments hard, they can handle it just fine.

As an added bonus, MadKool® fabrics are engineered to receive prints with vivid clarity and permanance, so you don't have to worry about wearing your garment hard.

Once you experience the comfort and performance of MadKool® fabrics you will never wan
t to take it off.



I have always wanted a tattoo, but I don't like needles and once you get a tattoo you can't take it off.  So that said no tattoos for me
Imagine when I visited YMX website, I was elated with joy.  I could  wear  clothing, that had amazing tattoo artwork on it, plus I don't have  to worry about needles and it's  removable.

 When I opened the package I couldn't believe how soft and lightweight  the material was on this shirt. 
I couldn't wait to go running in it. 

I finally was able to get a couple of runs in wearing the Tribal Sea Run Tee .   I totally soaked this shirt and it handled all my sweat great.  I had no chaffing or  riding up.  It fits close to the body without  being  to
clingy, like a lot of wicking material does.    The MadKool fabric makes this shirt so  breathable. I didn't take it off right away when I got home, because I got busy doing other things. I couldn't believe how fast this shirt dried out


 This shirt is so versatile you literally could wear it anywhere.   I wore it to town to do some errands.  This shirt has a very trimming look to it to.   Can you tell I don't want to take it off.


The great people at YMX are  offering one of  my followers a chance to win a Tribal Sea Run  Tee .
