Athletic gear has come a long way since I was a kid. Every sports team these days seems to offer uniforms that are lightweight and more breathable than the old fabric blend ones that I used to wear. Synthetic apparel isn't comfortable when you're on your feet being active. Moisture can get trapped in the fabric, leaving you in discomfort for long periods of time. Other material, like antibacterial bamboo fiber, is designed for exceptional moisture absorption. The material quickly evaporates human sweat by pulling moisture away from the skin.
Yes, you heard me correctly, it's really made of bamboo. As it turns out, natural bamboo creates a silky-smooth fabric for garments that has numerous microscopic holes that allow maximal ventilation and temperatures 1-2° lower than traditional summer clothing. Due to the efficient antibacterial benefits - bamboo fiber is not only a natural deodorant, but nearly 95% of bacteria will be expunged from the bamboo fibers after a 24 hour period.
If you are on your feet for long periods of time, make sure you're selecting the right apparel that can keep you comfortable and keep you focused.
