I’m not going to suggest you wear KAATSU while on a trek through the Amazonian rain forest, but you probably could. The KAATSU C3 features a ruggedized, water-resistant design that protects it from moderate environmental exposure. KAATSU Air Bands are fully waterproof so can be used in the pool, river, lake, or ocean. (Just disconnect them from the Air Hoses first!)
Using the KAATSU C3 in the rain, fog, snow, or dirty/sandy environments shouldn’t be a problem. When the air hoses are fully inserted into the unit the KAATSU C3 controller unit is mostly impermeable to the elements. There is an air vent for the unit on the bottom – needed for the compressor – which is why the KAATSU C3 should never be fully submerged.
Cleaning the KAATSU C3 controller unit can be done with a damp cloth to remove any excess dirt. Then use a microfibre cloth to get any residual liquid. KAATSU Air Bands can be hand-washed to help keep them clean and fresh.
Feel free to take your KAATSU C3 to the beach, trail hiking, to goat yoga, or wherever you want to use KAATSU for a boost to your workout. Take it with you in its convenient travel case so it’ll be ready to go when you are!
