Hear that sound? It’s the growing hum of online chatter about YMX.

By now you have either heard about YMX, bought and worn YMX, or joined the YMX FaceBook community. Or perhaps you have stumbled onto one of the many, many blogs that are reviewing YMX athletic/lifestyle clothing. This fast-paced trending should not come as much of a surprise, though, because we’ve known for a long time that once a person wears YMX they are a YMXer for life!

Perusing the hundreds of comments about YMX on blogs across the net we decided to compile the top three threads we are seeing and expound on them:

1) PRICE:  Perhaps the most frequent comment about YMX is the price. Many love the appearance of the product, but feel it is out of their price range.

The truth about the price of YMX apparel: YMX clothing is packed with original art, high-quality performance fabric, and silky-soft comfort. YMX garments are extremely durable and can be stretched, abused, and worn hard while still holding shape and quality. The fabric and prints offer multi-use properties, so you can wear your YMX in action or casually (or both, without changing!). The fabric doesn’t retain moisture, odor or wrinkles, and even offers UV protection. YMX makes every possible effort to include all of these benefits at the lowest possible cost to consumers. YMXers would all agree that removing any of the cherished benefits to lower the cost would be the end of a good thing. In any event, price-concerned customers would be hard pressed to find any other brand that offers the same quality/benefits at a lower price point. In short, YMX is priced at great value!

2) DURABILITY: Because YMX garments are made with luxurious, silky and lightweight fabrics, customers are often concerned about its durability and are afraid to wear it too much.

The truth about the durability of YMX: YMX garments look and feel delicate, but they can be worn hard! Stretch them, sweat in them, ball them up and jump on them. They hold up, hold their shape, don’t retain moisture (and odor!), and are hard to wrinkle. And yes, you can machine wash and dry them!

3) TOO NICE TO SWEAT IN: Sweat-prone athletes, like runners, are often concerned that YMX garments are too luxurious to sweat in. Why wear something so nice when it’s just going to mop up with moisture and get tossed to the side when their activity is done?

The truth about sweating in YMX: Perhaps many people are conditioned into thinking sweaty activities limit them to wearing basic rags. YMX is changing that mentality and believes you should have the choice to look and feel good at all times!. With YMX you can sweat away while you run, workout, or whatever you like to do, and when done your YMX garment will have expelled the moisture with little to no effect. Go sit down somewhere and get a smoothie, or hang out with your friends. They won’t shun you.

Take a pause out of your hectic day and reflect on the meaning of this inspirational story from a loyal YMX fan:

Heidi Dohse wears YMX's Flower Clouds jersey in the Tour de Palm Springs.

When Heidi Dohse was only eighteen years old doctors told her she had a rare heart disease. Since then she has been through countless medical procedures,  including six different pacemaker implants. But the adversities did not stop the passionate, strong-willed part of her heart that has fueled her recovery.  Here is what she has to say:

When I learned that I was going in for open heart surgery last year I asked three of my girlfriends to ride with me as a relay team in the LOTOJA Classic event.  I needed a reason to get better! We wanted to have matching jerseys.  When Heather, one of the riders and buyer at Sturtos, mentioned that YMX was now making cycling jerseys… well… it was a done deal. That is what I wanted us to wear.  Together we all voted on the Flower Cloud jersey because of the beautiful and inspirational colors and flowers.  I have to say that I LOVE that jersey! 

Heidi Dohse and her friends voted on YMX's Flour Clouds jersey to commemorate her one-year anniversary of heart surgery.

Though I have a drawer full of cycling jerseys, my YMX is my favorite. I love the way it looks but even better is the way that it performs.  I am riding mostly 100 mile and 200 mile events and my YMX jersey breaths, wicks, and feels good against my skin the whole time.  When it is cold I layer one of my YellowMan base layer tops underneath.

YellowMan long sleeve shirts for Summer

Now you can wear long sleeve shirts in the summer... without the sweat.

The hot summer months can sometimes be tricky when it comes to deciding what to wear. Depending on a myriad of conditions you can easily find yourself under-dressed, over-dressed, overly exposed to the sun, damp and sticky, and in dire need of a change of clothing. You might even need to divert your late afternoon or evening plans to go home and throw on a fresh shirt before meeting up with your friends.

If any of this sounds familiar to you, then YellowMan long sleeve shirts are for you! YellowMan’s amazing, performance MadKool fabrics give you the comfort to do what you want without the hazards of the summer elements. The super-silky, lightweight fabrics wick moisture away from your body and keep you fresh and dry. They also offer SPF 30+ UV protection so you can enjoy the outdoors without worrying so much about turning into a lobster.

Your YellowMan shirt can be used as a rash guard for water sport or for a weekend splash at the beach. It dries very quickly and doesn’t hang off of you like a mop. Check out pro surfer, Ryan Ragan, demonstrating the effectiveness of YellowMan’s Dragon Warrior long sleeve shirt as a rash guard.

YellowMan shirts pack lightly and make excellent base layers without creating bulk. This makes them the perfect travel garments. You could pack 25 shirts into your travel bag and hardly notice the bulk-less weight. What’s more, they are wrinkle resistant so you don’t have to worry about looking like you are living out of your suitcase when you travel.

If all these benefits aren’t enough, YellowMan shirts are also exquisite, and can be easily worn out to dinner or drinks with your friends. Throw on a dinner jacket and you’ll exude a sophisticated flare. Just ask Adventure Guide, Gary Scott, who swears by the versatility of YellowMan shirts on his treks in the Dolomites.

So, to sum it all up simply, YellowMan shirts offer you everything you need during the summer months, whether you are traveling, on the beach, hanging with friends…you name it. And you can do it all without having to change. How awesome is that!
