CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Good Gear Bamboo Clothing Review & Giveaway!!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012




This site is extremely fab­u­lous, and I am excited to share it with you all!!

Good Gear sells all types of won­der­ful 100% Bam­boo cloth­ing for both men and women for run­ning, walk­ing, hik­ing, climb­ing, bik­ing or how­ever you get your sweat on!!!





Super Soft Feel

Bam­boo fiber nat­ural cloth­ing feels incred­i­bly soft against your skin.

Odor Resis­tant

Bam­boo “kun” is the nat­u­rally occur­ring com­po­nent of bam­boo fiber that imparts nat­ural antibac­te­r­ial and anti­fun­gal properties.

Great for Athletes

The nat­ural antimi­cro­bial, anti­fun­gal, and mois­ture wick­ing prop­er­ties of bam­boo clothes means that your clothes stay fresh smelling longer when you work out. Soft yet resilient, bam­boo cloth­ing stands up to your most intense work­out with­out chafing!






Bam­boo is an eco-friendly, sus­tain­able crop that grows wild with­out the aid of fer­til­iz­ers or pesticides.

Bam­boo fab­ric is nat­u­rally antibac­te­r­ial, anti fun­gal and anti sta­tic. Bam­boo absorbs water 3–4 times bet­ter than cot­ton, keep­ing skin com­fort­able, rather than sticky, in sum­mer weather. And Bam­boo stays 2–3 degrees cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold.



“Good Gear is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing qual­ity gear to smart ath­letes (at an afford­able price) that want to have a pos­i­tive impact on our planet. We are those ath­letes as well. We have a pas­sion for health and fit­ness and want to pro­vide ath­letes with a high-quality option for sports gear.  We do this through an amaz­ing, ver­sa­tile, renew­able resource: Bamboo.

 Bam­boo is arguably one of the world’s best sus­tain­able resources. With a growth rate of up to a meter or more per day, bam­boo holds the world record as the fastest grow­ing plant. And, bam­boo is actu­ally not a wood but a grass, con­tin­u­ously send­ing up new shoots after har­vest­ing with­out a need for replant­ing. Bam­boo can be uti­lized in just 4–5 years unlike tra­di­tional hard­woods that not only take 25–70 years to mature, but also require replanting.

About Good Gear

In 2011, Good Gear was pur­chased by Torin Lee.  We will con­tinue the legacy of our founder by cre­at­ing gear that  sup­ports our cus­tomers active lifestyles, while being envi­ron­men­tally friendly.

Torin is a com­mu­ni­ca­tions pro­fes­sional and entre­pre­neurer (co-founder of sev­eral busi­nesses, most recently Catch­Fly, LLC and a Holis­tic Health Cen­ter), who after some seri­ous health scares in her twen­ties, began a renewed focus on health and fit­ness. She has lived in south­ern California,Colorado,Australia and Wash­ing­ton DC — and now resides in Connecticut.

“I believe we all have the abil­lity to chose the life we want; and then become the per­son who leads that life, ” said Torin. “Good Gear is this in prac­tice — it is allow­ing me to feel good about my busi­ness and my gear.”





I was sent a phe­nom­e­nal Bam­boo Sports Tank in black as well as a pair of Bam­boo Shorts, also in black, and I absolutely love them! Not only do I love the style of these clothes, Bam­boo cloth­ing (both mechan­i­cally and chem­i­cally man­u­fac­tured) is 100% biodegrad­able and can be com­pletely decom­posed in the soil by micro-organisms and sun­light with­out decom­pos­ing into any pol­lu­tants such as methane gas which is com­monly pro­duced as a by-product of decom­po­si­tion in land­fills and dumps which makes choos­ing bam­boo a much wiser choice!

I give Good Gear Bam­boo Cloth­ing a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend this awe­some com­pany to everyone!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest – — Bamboo Fiber Baby Sleeping Sack Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

As many of you already know, I recently ran a review and give­away with the won­der­ful com­pany called, where you will get noth­ing but Sweet Dreams using these excel­lent high qual­ity Bam­boo bed sheets and Duvet Cov­ers all at very low, unbeat­able prices!!

You can read that review by sim­ply click­ing here!

That review went over so well, that we decided to give it another go, but this time I will be both review­ing and giv­ing away one very sweet Bam­boo Fiber Baby Sleep­ing Sack! These great Zip­pered Baby Sleep­ing Sacks are made from (70%) Bam­boo Fiber and (30%) Cot­ton and are oh so soft to the touch.

Are you wor­ried about your baby’s sleep? Well you cer­tainly are not alone. A major worry for new par­ents is sleep com­fort and safety for their lit­tle ones! Stud­ies show that baby sleep­ing sacks are a bet­ter alter­na­tive for your baby than baby blan­kets. Many par­ents report that:

•Baby blan­kets fall off eas­ily leav­ing babies chilled and prone to wak­ing
•Remov­ing and then rewrap­ping baby blan­kets for late night dia­per changes is awk­ward and prone to wak­ing a child
•Sleep­ing rou­tines can be dif­fi­cult to main­tain when away from home
•Loose baby blan­kets are a worry for SIDS, as they may bunch up over baby’s mouth and nose

Poor sleep­ing can be a source of worry and exhaus­tion for any parent!

Imag­ine how much bet­ter you would feel know­ing your baby was sleep­ing safely and com­fort­ably through the night!!

Zip­pered Bam­boo Fiber Baby Sleep­ing Sacks from

* A major worry for new par­ents is sleep com­fort and safety for their chil­dren
* Baby blan­kets fall off eas­ily leav­ing babies chilled and prone to wak­ing
* Not so with our high-quality sleep­ing sacks; babies sleep com­fort­ably and rest­fully
* Your baby will get the best sleep with our Hypoal­ler­genic, Anti-Microbial Bam­boo Fab­ric Sacks”

These Sleep­ing Sacks come in many dif­fer­ent sizes:

* 0m — 6m
* 6m –12m
* 12m –18m

These are so adorable, and come in the colour Ivory. They sell for the very low price of only $29.95!! These would defi­nately make a great gift for the new mother, or mother-to-be!!

You just can­not go wrong shop­ping at! All of their prod­ucts are made of high-quality, you just could not ask for any better.

Bam­boo sheets and bam­boo cloth­ing are a great alter­na­tive to organic cot­ton because bam­boo grows read­ily much less water than cot­ton, and with­out fer­til­iz­ers or pes­ti­cides. By buy­ing nat­ural sheets, you have com­pleted the cycle of nat­ural bed­ding. And they feel so good you are tak­ing care of your guests or fam­ily, treat­ing them like roy­alty, but on a rea­son­able budget!

At, their mis­sion is sim­ple: to pro­vide the best prod­ucts and ser­vice to our cus­tomers at the low­est prices pos­si­ble. They take great pride in their com­pany and their com­mit­ment to cus­tomer ser­vice and in the prod­ucts they sell. Their online store is designed to pro­vide you with a safe and secure envi­ron­ment as well.

Again I can­not stress how great of a com­pany that is, and I totally rec­om­mend this com­pany to everyone!!
