There comes a time every year, when boys and girls frolic and cheer. But the ones that wish to keep their fitness in high gear have something very cold to fear. Winter makes their clothes feel so thin, so much that they feel a chill within.“How will I exercise in this cold?” – They ask. It is not such a difficult task. A bearded man dressed in red sitting on a sleigh said…
The solution promised in the lines above lies in the fabrics many of us have in our bedrooms – bamboo and Egyptian cotton. I believe that those of you familiar with the level of utter softness and comfort these offer are going to furthermore appreciate the idea of using bamboo clothing for men women and children and Egyptian cotton as your holiday season’s exercise outfit.
They’re both suitable for the coldest season, but there are certain details that set them apart and knowing them could help one make the right choice. Bamboo is thin, yet strong; breathable, yet able to keep you warm. It absorbs moisture easily and keeps your skin dry while you run and hike, making it easily suitable for your daily jogs throughout the winter. It is also antimicrobial which renders it a must-have for anyone that has allergy problems.
The counterpart to this is however more expensive, but still very much viable. Egyptian cotton, unlike bamboo, is not that thin, but the fine threads are breathable and strong and retain color very well. Another thing Egyptian cotton is praised for is its softness, due to the very thin and long but durable fibers.
As you can see, these materials don’t differ much when it comes to softness and durability, however, price is not the only detail that sets them apart. Bamboo has certain characteristics that render it the number one choice of environmentally conscious people since unlike Egyptian cotton, its growing process is much kinder to mother nature. Bamboo replenishes itself very fast and requires far less water for growing. If these things matter to you, than the choice should definitively be bamboo.
Finally, before frowning at the slightly higher price tags that come with the clothes made from both these materials, remember that bamboo clothing for men and women and the Egyptian cotton clothes aren’t just for one season of the year, they are good all year around and they’ll last you for more years to come.
