Hamper includes:

Neutral Run Socks

These socks, designed to help the neutral runner perform at their best in all conditions, offer selective cushioning and support and come with an ergonomic fit, specific for each foot. Drynamix Fibre keeps your feet cool and dry, while ankle and arch support keeps each sock in place. Mesh panels aid ventilation and seamless toes help prevent blisters.

Vitalizer Calf Sleeves

These compression sleeves aid in recovery and help delay muscle fatigue by providing light pressure from the ankle to the cuff. This allows for quick muscle revitalisation and recovery on the go. Knitted mesh panels ensure your lower legs are properly ventilated and cool in even the hottest conditions, and elastication at the top and bottom offer comfort, stability and support.

Arm protectors

With a UV-protection factor of SPF50+ and approval from the Cancer Association of South Africa, these arm protectors offer great protection against sunburn and overheating. Their reflective print also ensures you are visible to drivers while running or cycling in dark conditions, and their panel construction and Drynamix Yarn allows for optimal ventilation and moisture control during the day.

Advance Hike Anklet Cool

A robust, lightweight, advanced yarn blend ensures these hiking socks resist the development of blisters and keep your feet ventilated and cool. An ergonomic fit and supportive cushioning offer extra comfort for hot days out, while a reinforced heel and toe ensure these socks will survive the longest hikes.

Advance Bike Anklet Coollayr

Ultra-light and cool, these cycling socks are designed to help reduce your body temperature by aiding ventilation and resisting static. Their Silver Fibre tech is also anti-microbial, and provides gentle arch support, while a seamless toe helps prevent blisters.
