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.

Whether he’s spending a full day coaching and programming or ripping the handles off the ski-erg, Reinhard needs his gear to perform and be comfortable during long days. We asked Rein to run his hoodie through a day in his life as one of Austin’s most popular trainers.
