The light of the world saw another garment with the proud name of the Spartan warriors. This time he has the task of protecting his legs. Specifically, calves and shins. The Calf Guards in safety vest have the same features as handhelds that have been tested before, but you are not mistaken. But maybe you just love them all. Welcome to a world where there is no need for water, mud brooks, stones, ropes, but also barbed wire!
Simple hoods provide basic shaving and calf protection. They are ready for both dry and water, and some twig or stone would not hurt them. And you do not. Sleeve design is carried out in a traditional combination of black, gray and deep yellow color. Retro elements blend with industrial abstract patterns of triangles and hexagons. Technically, this is a tubular sleeve with one longitudinal seam carried out in flat stitching and tape under the foot. It is also lined with flat seams, but the upper end of the fabric is already processed by welding / gluing. So unpleasant pushing and rubbing under the knees should not occur.
For a long time, I wondered if the tape, which is designed to prevent the sleeve upward, should be worn on the sock or under the sock. I tried both variants. From changing over my sock, I promised more foot comfort, from underwear under the sock, to more freedom and comfort for my ankles. In the end, I decided to put down the sleeves and then the socks. The fabric is so fine that it does not cause any problems on the barefoot.
Minor problems, unpleasant dirt, however, provided huge white signs, maintenance and compositional notes. They are stitched to the sleeves relatively tightly, with a tiny stitch and their removal requires a little more tailoring skill.
Especially when shooting terrain and other occasions when it comes to shin, you will definitely appreciate the strengthening structure stuck on the stitches in the front. The combination of triangles creates a lightweight and resilient armor for participants of some Spartan. In addition to the refined design, you will also appreciate the reflective elements on both socks during training. On the one you will find the logo of the manufacturer, on the second sign of the race in the shape of a Spartan fighter. The word "Spartan" then leaves no doubt about where to put you.
The hangers hold well on their feet, their material does not hold water or sweat, but protects well against mud and other traps of mud races. It also works slightly compressively, so if you are a supporter of these permissive means of support, you will also not go away with unassigned. Weight analysts are not disappointed or weigh less than 46 gram
What to say at the end? On mud races, I always went with my legs - whether in long elastics or at least in shorts combined with the sleeves reflective tape. I never regretted it. The cuffs can also be used in training under boundary temperature conditions. Before you warm up, you can protect the lower legs when it gets hot, you just put them on your ankles and keep moving. This legend is usually not quite possible.
