Review: CoreSport Workout Shirt

Share

This fall CoreSport sent over a shirt for me to try, or as they call it the ultimate workout shirt. After a month or so of testing it and putting it through some interesting challenges, it’s time to share a few thoughts.

CoreSport uses perspiration activated fabric which actually helps you stay cool the harder you workout and sweat. While I have yet to be able to test the shirt in the extreme heat of the desert here in the Utah Summers it has worked well both during classes inside and outside doing gardening, cleaning chicken coops, chopping wood, and other manual labor around our house.

How does the shirt keep you dry?

CoreSport is made of poly/dacron with antibacterial bamboo charcoal fibers, the shirt wicks away moisture, dissipates heat and protects against UV rays. This also helps to make sure that you don’t end up a stinky mess after a training session. However, I think my favorite part of the shirt is that it is UV protectant, which is a must living here in the high desert.

To test the stink factor I deliberately decided to wear it several training sessions without washing and tried to see if the claim stood up. After a couple training sessions, the smell was almost non-existent and will be in my pack for weekend camping/mountain biking trips in the springtime down south.

Overall, CoreSport is a cool new product that is a great addition to your training wardrobe.

Episode 74 – Heather Shannon – Flight Nurse, Working on Disaster Relief, and Endurance Racing

Share

Heather Shannon has followed a meandering and adventurous path to get to where she could serve as a charge nurse of a 28 bed ER in a mobile field hospital as part of a federal disaster medical assistance team in Puerto Rico after hurricanes Irma and Maria. She started her journey as an officer in the US Army and then was recruited into corporate America as a logistics supervisor. Neither spoke to her true calling so after a master’s degree in organizational leadership; she spent seven years following her passion traveling the Western Hemisphere working as a mountain guide, outdoor educator, wilderness medicine instructor, and ski patroller all the while living out of a pickup truck. Things came together during this time, and while on the side of a mountain doing CPR, she knew nursing was her path. She got her RN license, paramedic license, a master’s degree in critical care/trauma nursing and cut her teeth in the trauma surgical ICU at San Francisco General Hospital. Fast forward 10 years and now she works full time in Northern California as a flight nurse on a helicopter.


Heather also trains for ultra-endurance races, running the trails with her dogs or doing yard work on her property in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Her recent noteworthy races include Survival Run Canada, finishes at Broken Arrow Skyrace 52K, TPK2, and a podium finish (first place woman) at TPK Endurance in 2016.

New Designs from Yoga Design Lab

Share

Yoga Design Lab makes some pretty cool looking yoga mats. If the yogi in your life is looking for a new mat for the holidays check these out. We will hopefully be reviewing the product here on Dirt in Your Skirt soon.


Yoga Design Lab launches it’s newest collection of eye-catching luxury yoga mats made from natural tree rubber and recycled plastic bottle microfibres. Just in time for holiday shoppers looking for that fashionable yogi gift!

Described by Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue as ‘stunning works of art’, Yoga Design Lab is a young Bali based yoga brand that is shaking up the industry with sophisticated technology and uber-colorful designs.

‘The goal was to create a beautiful, highly-functional product with the smallest eco footprint possible. Countless yoga mats end up in landfills because they’re made from non-recyclable, hazardous materials. We wanted to help change that.’

-Chad Turner, Founder/Designer

 

How is the Microfiber Made?

It is a total closed-loop supply chain, so you can be savasana-assured that your mat has been ethically sourced and manufactured with conscious awareness.

Bales of plastic bottle wastes will be supplied by recycle collectors. Workers of the yarn manufacturer separate the colored bottles from the clear ones while every bottle, including the labels and caps, are inspected for foreign materials.

The sorted PET bottles are then sterilized clean, dried and crushed into small chips so they are completely free of harmful foaming agents and plasticizers. The chips go through a heating process that allows them to pass through the spinneret until they end up being wound up like yarn threads in spools.

The fibers are drawn into smooth strings, and then go through a crimping machine which will give the polyester yarns the fluffy wooly texture. The crimped polyester yarns is dried, baled and pass quality control before they are considered fit for selling.

Share

Author of Dawn Again: Tracking the Wisdom of the Wild and regenerative rancher Doniga brings a perspective rooted in nature. She has a background in wildlife tracking and permaculture. In her youth, she was mentored by some of the leading wildlife trackers, naturalists, and Native spiritual elders. She spent years alone and with a small group of passionate youth in the Western Washington Wilderness learning the ways of the ancestors, immersing in nature, bird language, survival skills, and wildlife tracking.

Along with her husband and four children, Doniga owns and operates Markegard Family Grass-Fed LLC raising grass-fed beef, lamb, pastured pork, chicken and dairy supplying the Bay Area with local, nutrient-dense foods. The family ranch leases coastal ranches throughout the Bay Area spanning over 10,000 acres.

She is dedicated to finding ways to regenerate lands and community through ranching practices that build soil, sequester carbon, capture and purify water and enhance habitat.

On the podcast, we talk about her book a bit, regenerative agriculture, going from a wildlife tracker to a rancher and finally how some ranching practices can put more carbon into the earth than it emits.
