We Went Shopping at Brooks Today.....
We went shopping at the Brooks outlet at Sunway Pyramid today with the RM500 voucher that we won from the Blog With Brooks contest.
Since we have too many pairs of running shoes at home, we have decided to invest on some running technical apparels. Sort of to motivate us to run more in the coming mew year 2013. Gone were the days when we run wearing those stuffy cotton T-shirt and pants. Apparels for running have much evolved from the simple cotton sweat shirt or shorts to an array of techno-inspired and fantastically-named gears.
Check out our loot!
Brooks EZ T Running (RM89)
Looks like the grey cotton shirts that we used to gym. This shirt is made of material softer and lighter than cotton and way more technically advanced. Unlike cotton that retains sweat, this super-soft moisture-moving fabric wicks away sweat, hence leaving the body cooler. The flatlock seams prevent chafing. We love the relax fit that just drapes over the body but the classic "running" print is really the factor that made us decide to bring it to the cashier.
Brooks HVAC Synergy SS Power (RM149)
This is a sunblock in the form of a shirt. Heheh! This running shirt features integrated UV-protection in the shoulder and chest area, blocking 95% of harmful UV rays.
And that's not all: X-STATIC®, the Silver Fiber™ threads in the underarm and waist area make this a running shirt that is anti-bacterial and thermo-regulating, and prevents unpleasant odours. No more stinky shirt after a sweat-drenched run!
Brooks Sherpa Short III Black/ Nighlife (RM119)
Made of comfy lightweight fabric and combines reflective details that keep you visible at night.
We love the two rear holster pockets to store in our energy gels or keys while doing an LSD. FYI, the usual inner pocket is there too.
Brooks HVAC Synergy Short II (RM159)
This pair of shorts come highly recommended by the store manager, Manson. And the most expensive ones too! LOL!
Just like the HVAC Synergy shirt, these shorts are so light, yet so heavy on technology. Holster pockets tote gels, while the soft inner lining embedded with X-STATIC®, the Silver Fiber™, regulates your temperature, wicks moisture, and fights odor. Unlike the shirt, this one doesn't have UV protection for your bum. Heheh!
We are very happy with our purchase. The total bill came up to RM516. So, with the voucher, we only paid RM16 for all these stuff. :)
Oooh...can't wait to go for a run! RUN HAPPY!
