What’s All the Stink about Bamboo?

August 23, 2011

MARLBOROUGH, Conn., Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – An average person sweats between 0.8 to 1.4 liters, roughly 27.4 to 47.3 oz., per hour during exercise. (1) As the workout boom is on a steady rise, so are the amounts of people tolerating sweat. Unfortunately, heat and humidity are common factors that contribute to a fitness lover’s nightmare. Body odor happens to come hand in hand with this sweaty dilemma. Luckily, Torin Lee, owner of Good Gear (www.mygoodgear.com) has a new, natural solution to address workout wetness and unwanted odors. With Torin’s innovative Good Gear bamboo activewear, the apparel line allows athletes of all levels a breathable comfortable workout once, twice, even three times without smelling like they broke a sweat.

Torin is committed to making smart, driven athletes feel good about themselves by offering highly functional, yet affordable sports apparel that enables them to breathe easy, odor free. She utilizes bamboo, a highly sustainable and organic fabric, that when broken down into a fiber allows its apparel to be odor resistant and breathable, resolving the issue of hot, sweaty, and damp clothing while exercising.

Not only is Good Gear’s apparel able to fight the odor of sweaty workouts, but bamboo is found to be softer than cotton, making it especially comfortable for people on the move. In addition, it is four times more absorbent than cotton, allowing sweat to be absorbed rapidly while maintaining the breathability of the material. The fast absorption rate of Good Gears’ bamboo fabric keeps its wearers dry and odor free. Because bamboo fiber has organic and naturally smooth properties, it is non-irritating to skin, making it an essential for people who sweat often or those with skin sensitivities. With an exciting activewear product line, including sports shirts, tank tops, and shorts for both men and women, Good Gear is sure to fit into workout routines of all exertion levels.

Thanks to Good Gear, unwanted odors are left in the dust and a fresh and eco-friendly solution to sports apparel takes the lead.
