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.

Dwight Upshaw needs a layer that he can wear 20 hours a day. Up before sunrise most days, the head coach of CrossFit Sanitas in Boulder, CO makes a grueling coaching schedule seem routine. Not to mention, he’s an elite athlete in his own right, constantly varying his fitness to push both his aerobic and anaerobic system to their limits. We gave Dwight the Hoodie and asked him to hold nothing back to see if it could get him through everything he’s got going on.

I throw this hoodie on first thing in the morning when I’m walking the dogs and baby and it’s perfect for staying warm and cozy in preparation for all my workouts. It’s super comfortable all day but it’s still fully functional training gear with serious performance chops and secure pockets for my phone, wallet, and AirPods.
