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.

Constantly reinventing himself, Gabe embodies versatility. As an NPC nationally qualified bodybuilder and elite personal trainer in New York City, he is constantly shifting gears, moving from powerlifting to bodybuilding to endurance cycling. From his bike commute from Brooklyn into Manhattan to his total body burner after training his clientele, Gabe put his hoodie through its paces to test its merits as a go-anywhere, do-anything training essential.
