As with the short sleeve TCC shirt, the anti-microbial anti-stink properties were phenomenal. Fit was excellent, comfortable, unnoticed all day long.
Two things that make the shorts more challenging than the shirt.
The first is the nature of the beast, but in order to change the cold packs, I have to basically take my pants off and on. I'm a competitive pistol shooter, and doing this between every stage, every 45-60 minutes, is a disruption. Which leads to the second request. If the cold pack pockets were 2-3 times as big, or even if there were 2-3 sewn in a row, allowing me to add additional packs, maybe they would last longer and be more effective. The giant arteries in my thighs could use a little more heat exchange, I think, and there is room to add more cooling without compromising mobility or comfort.
Using the baselayer and inserts, I was able to perform my longest shift yet at work yesterday in the hot kitchen, all while under the watchful eyes of my manager. Needless to say my endurance did not falter the whole day while using the baselayer and frozen inserts. Thanks QorePerformance for helping me impress my manager
These are Great shorts, I wore them during a 12 hour exercise event, and they worked awesome. I wear them everyday for performing Crossfit workouts and they keep my cool and moving. I have recommended them for everyone at my gym and anyone looking to performance better.
These are great performance shorts. They feel like second skin - super comfortable and keep me cool on the long and hot runs, even without the cooling inserts. I sometimes use the insert channels for keys and other little essentials. My key fits in there with the insert.
I believe these are flattering as well. The legs are long enough, tight for support, but not too restrictive. I bought them right after I ran a 1/2 marathon in inappropriate leg wear. I wish had been wearing these. I know I would have been sooo much more comfortable. They should not be dried in the dryer, but air dry very quickly.
If you are running or cycling in hot weather like me (Hawaii), the base layer shorts are highly effective at keeping you cool. The shorts come with 4 plasma packs, which I keep in the freezer. These packs can be inserted into slots sewn in the front of the shorts. These slots align with your bodies natural thermal channel at the pulse points. Basically acting as a cooling system for the lower extremities. Tested the shorts out on both the bike and a tough hill run....they did very well! Try them out!
Bottom line, the concept of the cold packs near the big arteries in the legs have a direct impact on improved performance in warm climates. When I did the Half Ironman in Kona back in 2011, we dumped chucks of ice down our shorts in the half marathon to get the same effects. I have trained with your shorts and they work great. One set of frozen packs keep me cool for at least an hour in the heat of the day.
