SEAGALE CLOTHING

EQUIPMENT by KRISS on 17 september 2015

I actually didn't catch the play on words before yesterday.
Seagale is pronounced "cigale" which means cicada in french.
An emblematic insect of the Côte d'Azur and Provence, I could have guessed the logo of the brand is a cicada.
Blond mode off.

So my first impressions receiving the tee shirt and the boxer.

-Both are made with the same fabric : 50% merinos wool, 50% Polyester thermo cool.
It is very nice and soft, could be mistaken for a very thin strong cotton.
-There are NO STICKERS ! Thank you so much guys ! Is there anything more annoying than an itchy scratching etiquette in your back ? I won't even mention for the boxer. -The tee shirt I received is dark red, bordeaux wine color and it is very discrete.
The color is simple and beautiful.
The boxers are dark blue (close to black) and the shape is very close to body without being tight.

We will se how these live through time but as regards to the boxers first, I very much doubt they will be prone to sagging at any point, the fabric is just elastic enough to prevent from that and I know from experience wool does not behave like cotton in this aspect.

Right now we are still in Spain and have more storage than we will in Costa Rica, so I have quite a few sets of clothes to choose from and I will have myself wearing the tee-shirt and boxers a few days to see how it goes.

In Costa Rica we will be traveling light and my Seagale outfits might well be the only clothes I take and I will put them to some more intensive rough and unkind conditions.

The swimming shorts

Received them today and even if temperatures have dramatically dropped down to the nice 42°C day / 32°C night we had all summer, I will be courageous and bathe myself during my lunch break.

The temperature outside is 28°C so not very hot and the water must be around 20°C so really bloody cold.

That's me back from my experiment.
It took exactly 20 minutes for the shorts to dry completely except the pockets.
They took another hour but then I was indoors napping and I dozed off so maybe it took less !

Aside from the fast drying, the shorts look great, the fabric is very light, stretchy, and they are comfortable.
I didn't button them (should I start doing crunches again ?) but they are well made.
You can leave the top button opened and still secure them with the zip and the laces.

That way, you (in that case I) am comfortable standing, walking but also sitting.
More to come in a few months on Seagale !
