Review

Having never worn a speed suit before I was a little apprehensive about how it would feel to run in, assuming it would be a little tight in all the wrong places and uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. I was wrong.

The 'Mamba Legacy Speed Suit' fitted me like a dream and yes whilst you do get warmer wearing it than you would a vest and shorts combination, you don't feel uncomfortable or clammy with the kit on when wearing it either under your clothes during warm up or in the session/race itself. This is thanks to the suits breathability and the sweat wicker technology used in the fabric. If you do find yourself getting a little too warm in the suit, you do have the option of opening up the front zip which will effectively cool you down.

One of my major gripes with compression shorts is the fact that they continually ride up your thigh, but the guys at Black Mamba Elite have managed to successfully stop this from happening in the speed suit with rubberised grips around the base of the suit.

As an athlete I'm almost continually injured. As a slight side bonus to the speed suit, I did find that it's added all over support provided by the compression and the additional warmth when wearing the product when compared to my usual training attire aided my ability to effectively warm up the delicate areas that I usually have to spend longer stretching and drilling to get ready for training or competition.

I did find that after several sessions wearing the suit that the compression banding began to crack a little, however no more so than the TPU bands on other similar products.

All in all, the 'Mamba Legacy Speed Suit' is a top quality product that looks great. The only part of the suit I was a little unsure of was the back zip pockets as I didn't feel I had the need for them, however they don't negatively affect the performance of the product. I'm looking forward to seeing future editions of the suit with a range of colour schemes/designs to match the vests Black Mamba Elite also produce.
