Folks, have any of you tried Mizuno's Bio Gear? It's supposed to function like Skins but I'm not sure if it's of comparable quality. Any feedback?

Tried for a few mth aldy. So far so good. It absorbed sweat and dried up rather quickly, though might not be as good as Skin. Have not try Skin though.

hmmm............no indication.......so think not. Probably making use of the dryfit material to dissipate the body heat.

I don't think so as well which is why the Bio Gear is cheaper than Skins.

I now have both the long sleeve Mizuno bio-gear and Skins. A quick comparison:

Mizuno Bio-Gear
+ Cheaper than Skins (slightly)
+ Comfortable
- Not as cooling as Skins (at least not that I've felt anyway but it may be because mine's black)
- Not thoroughly body hugging so may get in the way of rapid movement
- No UV protection (at least not that I've seen or read)

Skins
+ Comfortable though a little tight at first
+ Very cooling
+ Body hugging so it does not impede rapid movement
+ UV protection (UPF 50+)
- Expensive (slightly more than Bio-Gear)

i have underarmour heat gear , dri fit nike pro and mizuno bio gear.

they all do their work very well.

none of them came with any UV protection.

have not used skins.. ( no money) but i believed skins are pricier and more cooling.


but having said so... the formers mentioned faired as good as well. i have them in long sleeve and i dun get any sun burn feeling on my arms even without the UV protection. as for 50% cheaper, i would buy them again ....

ar...

i think.. skins would cost at least 100sing? for short sleeve and higher for long sleeve?

that's quite a lot to me....


unless.. my approach shots can backspin ... back to hole.. maybe i'd buy.


( reminding myself to stop buying!!!!! and go range more often). LOL

Yah, but the UV protection makes it worth it. The difference in price is not huge but it exists.
