The challenge

Warm enough for morning runs but breathable enough for indoor training sessions, the Midweight Tech Hoodie is ready to take on any challenge in any condition. Constructed with a proprietary fabric that combines performance tech with premium, comfortable cotton, this hoodie is the best of both worlds. So whether you’re commuting to the gym, warming up for your hardest sessions, or recovering post-workout, you can be confident this versatile and reliable midlayer will excel before, during, and after training.

Navigating Manhattan’s city streets, Anthony is pounding the pavement from sunup to sundown. Chilly one-on-one outdoor personal training sessions, cramped subway rides, and sweltering classes at one of New York’s premier group fitness studios demand a versatile layer that can perform every day, everywhere. We had Anthony put the hoodie through a full day in the concrete jungle, including one of his signature boxing workouts.

The Verdict

INSANELY BREATHABLE

This hoodie is essential for boxers. Lightweight, breathable, and does not cut off any range of motion throughout movement like other hoodies I’ve worn. Going 10 rounds on the bag with this hoodie I was expecting to feel disgusting and drenched but the wicking technology is incredible.
