If you check out the Mitmunk Facebook page, you’ll see loads of photos of their amazing designs, including the model I’m reviewing, the Vostok leggings. The company explains, “Our Vostok leggings are named after the first manned spacecraft, designed by Soviet engineer Oleg Ivanovsky who died last week. He also worked on the Sputnik satellites, including the rocket that launched Laika the dog into space. I will take some time to learn more about his work and reflect on the effect it has had on space exploration as well as our understanding of the universe we live in.”
The best thing about training jiu jitsu is being able to wear clothing that you haven’t been brave enough to wear in public since elementary school. When Can Sommez, AKA Slideyfoot, shared a photos of the Bionic leggings by Mitmunk, I knew I had to try them.
My review will be up in a couple of months on Breaking Muscle but if you can’t wait (and you shouldn’t) you can buy the Vostok, or whichever leggings you want on Mitmunk’s Etsy page for $79. I’m wearing size medium in this photo and they’re a bit long on me but otherwise fit very well.
