Purely because the name is such a mouthful, we will refer to the Primus Trail FG X Finisterre as the FG X.

Ben Sayers was formed way back in 1873, that’s the same year our dear old Queen Lizzy’s Great-Great-Grandmother, Queen Victoria, was on the throne, so it is easy to believe that this is amongst the oldest golf companies in the world. The Ben Sayers brand created many revolutionary pieces of golf equipment, including the gutta-percha golf balls and the ‘Benny’ putter, the first putter to have a square-edged grip, and then, years later the first set of carbon-shafted irons and the first oversized driver, and now the XF Laser RangeFinder.

The RUSH Short Sleeve top had the honour of making its debut appearance on the final day of my three-month Tough Mudder training, this had involved 8-mile runs, hour-long circuit training, hill sprints and many MANY pull ups, thankfully my last session consisted of a very gentle 5 miler (although it was chucking it down at the time, nice weather would be too easy).
I remember when I first started running about 14 years ago I used to do it in cargo shorts, I thought the baggier the better, cover up all those lumps and bumps (I also remember running in hiking boots once, how I didn’t bust a shin I do not know). Looking back I realise how difficult I was making things, not to mention the friction burn between my thighs, ouch. I never really understood why people used skin-tight clothing whilst working out, surely it was more restrictive, then my Mum got me some capri tights and the penny dropped.
There seems to be a bit of an issue with the men I work out with and the idea of exercise leggings, I guess as there is a lack of leggings for men in everyday high street fashion they are worried that putting a pair on will result in the Dude Police rocking up and revoking their male membership. It was only after pointing out that the buffest and most muscly PT in the gym wore leggings that I managed to persuade one of them into giving it a go and, albeit wearing shorts over the top, he realised how much better it was
