Of course we aren’t missing our BAM essentials off the list.

There are so many benefits of bamboo clothing. From the moisture managing and thermo-controlling properties, to the silky-soft, light as air feel. This is why BAM clothes are a must have for any holiday.

From casual days to relaxing evenings – here are our top holiday picks for women and men.

Sit back and relax in our comfy loungewear, or work up a sweat in some BAM training kit.

And not to forget the essentials – socks and underwear.

View our range of Women’s and Men’s underwear and socks.

Not only is our fabric super-soft, it also manages moisture away from your skin which means even in the heat, our clothing won’t go smelly!

So travel in comfort, whilst sweat and odour free in BAM!
