Win an awesome running shirt by YMX

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by YMX (stands for YellowMan Expression) and was asked to review and giveaway one of their products. I had never heard of this company, but after checking out the YMX website I was really happy with what I saw!

YMX sent me one of their awesome Tribal Sea Running T's in blue and a matching set of the Tribal Sea Arm Warmers in blue.
I was really excited when I got the package and as soon as I opened the products I could see that they are a very high quality. The designs and colors on them are just beautiful and the fabric is really amazing. It is very light weight and soft. My kids (toddlers up to teens!) all agreed that the shirt was SUPER COOL looking.

I wore the shirt on a 20-mile run outside, then on a 8 mile track workout (with the armsleeves), and then again this morning on a 12-mile run on the treadmill. I love it! I think this is the lightest running shirt I have ever worn. I got a size small and it fit well, maybe even a little on the big side (so if you are in between sizes I would size down) and the small/medium arm sleeves fit well too.

The shirt was incredibly comfortable and light when I ran in it and I got a lot of compliments on how cool it looks. The length was slightly long which I like, and it did not move/ride/chafe in any way. The fabric is moisture-wicking, has UV protection, and is wrinkle resistant. I washed it in the washer and dryer and it came out perfectly three times now.

The only downside I can see of this shirt is the price. At $69, it is pretty pricey for a short-sleeved running shirt, even though the quality and beauty of the shirt does seem to make it worth the money. Also, the arm sleeves are not compression at all (just for warmth/protection) and I wish they had pockets on them.

All in all I love my Tribal Sea Running T and arm sleeves from YMX and these are going to get A LOT of wear from me. They have some long-sleeved hoodies that are just gorgeous too and lots of other great looking products for runners, cyclists and other athletes, as well as for casual wear on the YMX website. I didn't get a pic with the arm sleeves on because I was HOT once I got back in the house, but they were perfect for a chilly morning and Josh said they make my arms look buff. :)
sorry the color/quality of this pic isn't great! I need a new camera

I have to say, I'm loving tribal sea set that you got, but in the pink. I'm kind of a pink girl, but all their stuff is pretty darn cool.
