Maxit Workout Clothing


Stretchy thermal wear

Maxit is an amazing material for workouts (and staying warm and dry in general). Maxit is what NFL players wear under their uniforms in winter games. It’s a stretchy 92% polyolefin, 8% lycra material that looks like tights you can get in running and biking stores, but it’s a different product and not easy to find. My friend Bob Anderson (of Stretching fame) lives in the Rockies near Colorado Springs and goes on 5-7 hour bike rides and all he generally wears is Maxit. I wear one layer when the temp is as low as the ’40s. It’s a bit cold starting out but as soon as your blood is moving, you’re warm (and dry). I think it’s better than any of the Pategonia, North Face etc. type hi-tech clothing. I have hats, zip-up shirts, gloves, and tights. My favorite is what’s called the QBZ, long-sleeved with neck zipper. Bob sells Maxit gear, along with other body tools.
