Eastbay Field Tester: Patrick Peterson

Eastbay Field Tester: Patrick Peterson (1)

words // Taylor Scharfenberg

By now you may have noticed Eastbay’s new look. We’ve always been about helping serious athletes Prepare to Win, but we’ve stepped up our game recently, with an all-new, product-testing program. It’s one more way that Eastbay helps athletes dominate on game day.

Product reviews are easy to come by, but position-specific reviews by the sport’s most elite competitors are not. That’s where Eastbay Field Tested comes in. This game-changing advantage gives you access to field tests from top athletes in your sport and position. Leading the push is Patrick Peterson (DB, Arizona), who knows the importance of getting the right gear before you step on the field.

“I think Field Tested is pretty cool. To have the opportunity to test and to be able to put kids in the right product — I think that’s something that’s very smart. I didn’t have that when I was in high school.”

So, how do you find the perfect gear for your game? It starts with advice from pro athletes like Patrick Peterson. You’ve seen this stellar DB in the Alpha Pro Low TD because lightweight speed and stability are of top importance to Patrick.

“I like light stuff. I like something that looks good – something that’s light and durable. Nike Flywire is a new technology that lightens up the shoe and adds a little more flexibility, so you can generate power while you’re running.”

With gloves, it’s all about supreme grip for Patrick. Always ready for an interception opportunity, he trusts the Nike Vapor Jet 2.0 Receiver Gloves.

“The Vapors are pretty light and durable, but I’d have to say the grip is most important when you’re catching the ball. And now they have the leather coming all the way down your wrist so you can have better ball protection. When you’re tucking the ball, it’s not on your wrist where it’s sweaty.”

For more feedback on the right cleats and gloves for your game, take a look at our reviews from other elite athletes around the country. These players have been specially selected to provide you with information on a variety of product attributes like weight, fit, strength, cushioning, and more. Once you’re convinced of which product is your perfect match, return the favor by filling out your own review, and let other players know exactly what you think.
