Want to Optimise your Optimal Ultra Set? Take it for a SWIM!

Now that we have Amin Hijab as part of the Optimal Ultra Set, let’s see how the whole set performs in the water.

Two types of combinations tested for a few laps of breast strokes and free style.

1. Amin Hijab (worn outside and covering the chest) & Grey Ultra Top

2. Amin Hijab (worn inside) & Black Ultra Top

The only items that are not Nashata were the black goggles and pink icewatch

Amin Hijab (worn outside and covering the chest) & Grey Ultra Top

 

  • The material for Amin hijab is not for swimming although it dries fast and light. If worn outside just like in this video, the front part of the hijab would move around when you swim.
  • The grey ultra top is nice and cool as the color is light. The material for ultra top can be used for triathlon, hence there is no problem using the top in the water. As to whether or not the top floats when you swim. Surprisingly it didn’t while standing and swimming.
  • The skirt compression pants were nice. The skirt floats when you stand, revealing the pants underneath, but when you swim, the skirt doesn’t cause any obstruction.

It is good to have the front part of the hijab outside, covering the chest as soon as you get out of the water.

2. Amin Hijab (worn inside) & Black Ultra Top

After the first combination, we tried the black ultra top with the hijab tucked into the top.

  • Swimming with the hijab tucked into the shirt gave a much better swimming experience. It is neater and no obstruction while swimming.
  • The black  top is much hotter, due to the color. If you plan to use the top in the hot sun, grey would be a better choice.

All in all, if you plan to use the optimal Ultra set in the water, you could safely do so, but you need to make sure the hijab is tucked IN while you are in the water and OUT when you are done swimming.

Do consider wearing a lighter color especially if you plan to be out in the sun. Black absorbs ridiculously a lot of heat. But if you are considering the grey top, do take note that your figure is more revealing in grey compared to black.

How long did it take to dry the top and hijab?

  • Amin Hijab dries first within 5 minutes
  • Followed by Grey A-Cut Top
  • And Lastly the Black A-Cut Top

All three products dried within 10 minutes!
