Sounds interesting, and it's one of the fastest growing plants around. I know this as my mate has some that's undermining his house :?

Will keep an eye out for it...

cotton is one of the worst fabrics to have in training clothes, so I think we can leave that to the side :)

I actually have bamboo in one of my cycling gloves, some part of the glove apparenty have bamboo in it 8)

I've seen bamboo t-shirts, it's a very soft material, was kind of weird wearing it because it was so thin it almost gave a see through effect because every single contour and silhuette became very obvious. I felt a bit too self conscious at the time so I didn't buy it :?

I have some bamboo items for training, it stands up well especially as underwear but it's not supportive at all.

I never ever ever wear cotton, for intense cardio activities it's pointless and you end up stinky and soggy.

For me it's tech synthetics all the way. I'll admit to being a groupie to certain brands because the fabrics and cuts are awesome - Stella McCartney for Adidas is my favourite, Lululemon from Canada is hyped to hell but all my Lulu gear had stood up to constant sweat and abuse for years now and I love their attention to detail. Nordic brands like Rohnsich, Casall, PureLime and Peak Performance are also stylish and resilient and have found their way into my wardrobe. I spend way too much on sports gear :oops: Gone are the days when I would but Umbro soccer shorts from the teenage boys section of a sports shop because that's all there was.

for lifting I usually just throw on an old soccer t-shirt and pair of shorts that hit just above my knees. for running, depending on the weather, relatively the same deal. I try to wear really loose clothing for yoga because I sweat so much. If I don't wear a baggy t-shirt, I wear a tank top of some sort. now that I think about it, my fitness attire is really unflattering! :oops:

The gym ain't a beauty contest hun, I'm more likely to respect people who turn up to trainand don't care what they wear than people who put more effort into dressing than working out!

Having said that, I am quite jealous of fluxes selection of tech gear :oops: must go shopping when I've got a bit of cash....

I caved and bought some semi-attractive activewear: a couple of new sports bras (because my other ones are wayyy too old), two really comfortable sweat wicking tanks, a pair of booty shorts and a pair of yoga capris. now I can go to the gym and yoga class in style! :wink:

Nice shorts. Are those the best goggles around in your opinion? I've never been able to find ones that aren't leaky, and I really like swimming underwater so it's quite irritating.

I've been racing since I was a kid, so those gasket-less goggles are my favorite. No leaking, cheap, and very low profile. Those TYR are my favorite of all current goggles made.

HOWEVER, gasket-less apparently don't wear well on beginners. I'm not really sure why. However, most of my swimmers that are just starting out or never swam competitively as a kid can't seem to keep water out of these. For some reason, all the folks who swam in college, and those who swam competitively through HS seem to wear these type of gasket-less goggles very well.

There is no real way to know unless you try.

For most beginners, goggles with a wide profile and silicone gasket works best. After that point, it is a matter of making them tight enough. Gasket-less goggles leave a small mark, but those that are wide profile should really leave a deep mark if they are to stay completely sealed.

These Speedo Vanquisher are a good pair of the silicone gasket with a wide profile (fitting along the bone ridges of the face):

Does anyone knows about Taygra shoes? It's a brand from brasil and they said you can use them for any kind of sport, so I'm a bit sceptical but maybe someone always tried them?

According to the website they are perfect for vegan and ethical, plus the prices are same or less expensive than other fitness brand so it looks really interesting.
