From time to time I like to tell you about stuff I like, usually stuff for which I am not being compensated and stuff produced and sold by companies to which I have absolutely no connection other than as a consumer. And, in that vein, I want to tell you about “2nd Skin” thermals. I bought them at Big Lots, a store I normally avoid because it is so filled with so much stuff I don’t need and shouldn’t buy. But I saw them in an ad in my newspaper, and I went to check the product out.
I wear 2nd Skin thermals as work out gear, under my clothes when I go hiking in the snow outside, and as very comfy pajamas (as an alternative to long johns or other thermals). They are like the overpriced Under Armour, but at a fraction of the price. And, right now, they are half off at Big Lots for just $4.50 per item. So, even though winter is ending, now is the time to stock up for next winter. You can buy the crewneck tops and pants separately, and they come specifically for men and women in sizes S-XL. I wear the small and the medium. They come in several colors (black, grey, and cobalt blue for men and black, grey, and light aqua blue for women).
I can’t recommend 2nd Skin enough because the clothing keeps me really warm when I’m working out and is made out of a combination of stretch material and a waffle-like very tiny micro-fleece-like lining. It’s machine washable, doesn’t shrink, and really wicks away the sweat when I’m running, whether inside the gym on the treadmill or outside in the snow.
Like I said, I have no connection to Big Lots or 2nd Skin. I just love the product, and now that it’s 50% off and on clearance, I wanted to tell you about it. I’m not sure if they are even made anymore, as I cannot find the items anywhere on the net other than on the Big Lots site. Find your nearest Big Lots.
