2UNDR - Revolutionary Men's High-Performance Underwear

#2UNDR - Not your average underwear range.

Power Shift in Crimson & Navy

Every man will knows there's nothing more irritating than the feeling of uncomfortable or poorly made/sized boxers.  I've had several pairs over the years and I've found what bothered me the most was when they would start to become baggy around the waist or happen to be too short at the legs.  Often the stitching would mess up and before you know it its time for a new pair.  

This is where 2UNDR come in to play. I believe the smallest things like comfortable clothing can make the biggest difference in how you feel throughout your day.

The revolutionary men's underwear company got in touch giving me a couple of pairs to choose from and review.  The pants are designed with the mans lifestyle and comfortability in mind.  

I was happy to receive these because I always like to have the newest and best gear and I could do with a few new pairs for Christmas. 

These Power Shift type I found to be extremely soft and comfortable and have worn them under my shorts to the gym.  They are a great fit and there's no 'chafing' or uncomfortable skin contact feeling which I've found you get with many boxers.

Made in Vancouver, worn everywhere.
What stood out for me was that they are longer at the legs which is ideal for keeping you warm and not too short or uncomfortable.

The underwear features Garmatex's patented 'Coldskin fabric.'  This fabric is created by embedding crushed jade within the fast-drying microfibre filaments.  The thermal reduction fabric promotes extra cooling where excess heat builds up.  This can reduce reduce body temperature by 3 to 6 degrees. 
(It's good stuff, basically!)
Using the most advanced construction techniques and materials, the 2UNDR™ range provides more support than a standard brief with the best fit, comfort and style man has ever experienced. Taking inspiration from the kangaroo-pouch, 2UNDR™ features the unique and revolutionary "The Joey Pouch" to separate a man's most valuable assets from bodily contact to reduce unwanted skin-on-skin contact, providing less chafing, more control and an altogether more luxurious feel. The innovative design also delivers improved airflow keeping you cool when involved in strenuous activity or simply going about a busy day.
You can get the Power Shift type's here for £26.99. 

Once you've worn these bad boys you'll never go back to flexing your old Primark standards.

Shorts from 304 Clothing

I received these shorts from 304# Clothing, I first discovered 304 through Twitter and remember seeing an article where Spencer from Made in Chelsea is featured wearing a vest from the company.

I've always found 304 to be a good and trustworthy company.  Seeing lots of new items, promotions and competitions from 304 Clothing.  I find the their style trendy & cool, be sure to check them out if you haven't heard of them already.  

Love the '04' design on these bad boys, great material, very comfy and nice fit. They have a rope to easily tie together at the waist.  Not just for the men either there's plenty of different clothes for the ladies!

Hughes' Laser Eye Surgery Update

No more glasses, no more contacts!

As many of you know I was lucky enough to win laser eye surgery in November last year from Optimax who were very professional and helpful with me. 

I thought I'd post an update on how my vision is now and how I am getting on after the treatment.

So my vision is CRYSTAL CLEAR now and I've had no problems at all! You can imagine how good I feel every day waking up being able to see everything in so much detail and actually recognise people from a distance.  I'm forever grateful and lucky to have something literally fix the short-sightedness I've endured for most of my life and I have Optimax to thank for that.   

Going through with the treatment and making the decision to have it done was pretty scary because the slight risk anything could go wrong always seemed to play on my mind.

The treatment was painless and once you have the treatment done you can actually see instant improvement and 80% of the blur had gone.  I went with what my consultant suggested and opted for the LASEK treatment which can be more painful (but wasn't) and has a longer recovery which really wasn't that long.  The LASIK is more for people who need it done quickly like 2-3 day recovery and back to work.  You have to just wait over time for your eyes to adjust and heal to the treatment. 

I would definitely recommend having it done if you can afford it, its saved so much time and money in the long-run.

Winning Laser Eye Surgery with Optimax

I'm happy to say I've had the pleasure of winning Laser Eye Surgery thanks to Optimax.  I won Laser Eye Surgery last year in November.  One of the entries was to write a small blogpost on why I wanted to win.  So I figured it was my perfect opportunity and then I forgot about it once I had entered.

My eyes have always been terrible and progressively gotten worse as I've become older, it was -5.50 approx in both eyes, short sighted and I would always wear glasses and contacts which I wasn't comfortable with.

I received the email telling me I had won and I was very pleased, booked the consultation on the phone.  The people at Optimax in Manchester were very friendly and helpful, offered me a drink and explained everything to me.  I had time to decide whether or not I would go through with the surgery, I wasn't nervous at all and booked to have the surgery done after the New Year.

I had LASEK eye surgery and could see much clearer straight after having it done, I just had to wear shades from being sensitive to light and wait to fully recover.

The surgery and recovery was PAINLESS.  

The best way to describe it is its slightly uncomfortable for a while and it takes time for you to adjust to your new eyes (particularly with LASEK surgery as opposed to LASIK).

I was taking a few different antibiotics / eye drops which helped me during recovery.  The times I went back to Optimax my eyes had improved and right now I can see extremely clear and have no problems.

Now I'm much more confident in general and happier, anyone who is interested in getting Laser Eye Surgery I would say go for it.  I'm very happy with the treatment overall and especially cancelling my Specs-Savers direct debit.
