YMX Review and Giveaway!
Yes, YMX Yellowman sent me a jersey gratis to review and are sponsoring a giveaway but the opinions are my own! Deal with it!
YMX Yellowman contacted me to review a product that was touted as a "multi-sport" piece. Okay, I'm game. I do more than one sport. Although I didn't see my sports on their site I decided to test what they sent on what I do.
I was sent the Winter Flower red jersey with a hidden zipper and 3 back pockets. My first test was skateboarding. I went out on a chilly morning that I would usually wear a hoodie for and this was warm and worked really well. I got the medium and the arms were long enough! This is important for a 5'10" girl.
Today I decided to give it the surf test. Since they're rated at SPF 50, I assumed you could get it wet. Forgoing my usual rash guard I wore this instead. Perfect! It totally worked and had me cozy in the Santa Ana winds under my suit this morning. In addition, the design is pretty sick. After looking around their site I really fell in love with the Asian-themed art pieces they have.
So yes, multi-sport it is. This should work famously for you cyclers and runners (or surfers/skaters like me!)
Wanna win one?
Send me an email at sportswriterchick(at)gmail(dot)com and tell me what sports you want to use it for. The deadline is 11:00 pm on Friday, December 2nd. I'll pick a winner at random.
P.S. United States only please
