Matman Doubleknit Nylson Singlets

Matman's #81 and #83 Doubleknit Nylon wrestling singlets are truly "throwback" singlets. As the namne indicates, it's made of a heavy 100% nylon fabric. This is very different from the more common lycra singlets, which are made with a blend of polyester and spandex or nylon and spandex. The 100% nylon singlets have very little stretch compared to the singlets with spandex blended in the fabric. Some wrestlers prefer this "old school" singlet for the classic style and look. It's reminiscent of the days when Dan Gable ruled the mat, and singlets were commonly accompanied by knee-high socks or legging. This singlet is probably most commoly sought out by competitive weighlifters and cross-fitters.

    A large in the MatMan 81 & 83 double knit nylon singlet would cover anyone between the weights of 160-190.

    How is the double knitt nylon different than the regular singlets on your website?

    Dave Applegate's picture

    Very good question : ) The doubleknit nylon fabric was commonly used before Lycra (spandex) came into fashion. It is slightly thicker and less smooth than Lycra, and retains moisture and heat very differently. If you're used to ordering Lycra singlets, I'd highly suggest sticking with Lycra. That being said, MatMan's doubleknit nylon singlets are extremely popular and high-quality singlets. We've never had a disappointed customer who knew what he was ordering.

    Dave Applegate's picture

    The MatMan double-knit nylon singlets are for both youth and adult kids. The lower end size ranges (4xs, 3xs, 2xs, etc.) are for youth while the higher size ranges (s, m, l, xl, etc.) are for adults : )
