So what were to THUMBS up about trailing in Nashata Outfit?
You don’t get bugs bite! The good thing about trailing in long sleeves, long pants and a sports hijab on is that you need not use insect repellent. Your body is protected.
All the items, including the sports bra are made of light weight and anti-bacterial fabric, hence no odor and fast to dry throughout and after your activities.
The extended sleeves, covering half of you palm protect your palm when you need to do rope work or when you hold on to branches along the way. There are ropes at both trails.
Not only that, I use palm to wipe your nose and sweat along the way.
Phone and important small items are safely secured on the back of Skirt Compression Pants and the compression pants keep you knees and thighs firm. I can’t feel carrying a phone at your back.
The Amin Hijab, to be released end of this month was put to another TEST. The combination of breathable fabric and fitted design gives complete comfort! It was dry throughout !
The light weight sports bag was idea for 6 km trail. With phone and important item in the pockets, a small towel, a water bottle, a shirt and a raincoat fit nicely in the bag. The total weight is just like an empty bag-pack! But running with the bag on is not advisable.
Protection and comfort attained while trailing in Nashata Outfit!
Lastly, here’s a Grid of Pink Avatar Flowers and the Orange Flower with Black Seeds on its Petals. Let us know if you know the name of these exotic-looking flowers!
