What's a Haramaki?

The Haramaki (kidney warmer) originated in Japan in the 16th century.  Worn by the Samurai under their armour to protect the stomach and kidneys.  Five centuries on, they are still worn and appreciated in Japan for their health promoting properties.  The Haramaki's (kidney warmers) function is to maintain the body's core warmth.  This in turn helps to boost blood circulation, ease back aches and soothe abdominal ailments.  Now worn as the ultimate super efficient base layer.
