Great newer company Non-Issue PT Gear.

I doubt many of the guys here have tried yoga (was not my thing until my wife insisted we go 3 times a week) But there is a great company that has some awesome work out clothes for men. Lululemon Athletica is what they are called. I was surprised at how durable the stuff is. I bought a Zip up hoody and though it is not waterproof it is amazingly warm and has a high neck zipper so it keeps you comfortable and insulated well. I had one modified by a seamstress so it has velcro panel and an extra pocket on the left arm for misc stuff. also the pants they make are very comfortable. I bought a pair for going to Afghanistan and they were great!

Just thought I would share them with you guys I know many of us don't have to wear regulation PT's yet need stuff that is simple and works well.

This is the black one I had gotten and had modified. If I get a chance in a few days I will snap a picture and give the specs of what the seamstress did to it exactly.

I've been using their gear for hot yoga (112 F) and regular yoga for several years. It is hard to destroy this gear. I can highly recommend it.

My wife teaches yoga and pilates, and absolutely swears by Lululemon. I have one of their work out shirts, and it is probably the best one I own. A few comments:
  • Beware the trip to the Lululemon store $$$$
  • Yoga class...attractive women...um, check.

Agreed on that one $$$$, though I will mention that they guarantee there products to hold up for 5 Years which is awesome if anything rips or strings start coming off just take it back to them and explain it.
