As The Weather Gets Colder, You Get Stronger: Your Fall Sports Cold-Weather Guide

This is it.

For many fall sports athletes, the intensity is ratcheting up as you’re entering the most important part of your season. But as you prep for your most high-pressure games, meets, or matches, you’re going to have to face a different kind of challenge first: the weather. Training outdoors isn’t as easy as it was at the start of the season since some of the gear you grabbed this summer might not be ready for the lowering temperatures. Lucky for you, Eastbay is here, with cold-weather clothing designed to withstand anything Mother Nature throws your way.

Cold-Weather Football Clothing

Conquering the cold during late season football practices and games will be no sweat with Under Armour ColdGear Compression apparel. From tops to tights, these pieces are perfect for layering under your clothing and equipment. They wick sweat, insulate your body, and move with you. Another great choice for practice time is the Nike Lightweight Therma Hoodie. It has a hood with a braided drawcord to keep you covered during wind or storms and allows for a customizable fit.

Thanks to its premium comfort, unrestrictive fit, and moisture-wicking technology, the Nike Academy half-zip top is just what the doctor ordered during the fall soccer season. Its Dri-FIT material and raglan sleeves ensure that you can stay focused on every drill, workout, and fast break. The adidas Tiro 17 Pants are ideal for this time of year as well — their slim fit makes ball handling easier while a drawcord along the waist lets you customize your fit. When it comes to soccer compression, the Nike Pro Compression long-sleeve top is tough to beat. From its four-way stretch design for enhanced range of motion to its flat seams for zero distractions, it is built to withstand any weather condition.

Running during bad weather can be a nightmare if you aren’t geared up properly, so we’re here to help with a list of the tops, tights, and pants you need to power through. Some great options include the Nike Dri-FIT Element half-zip and the Eastbay EVAPOR Cold Weather quarter-zip mock. The Element is designed to keep you dry and fresh, and even features ergonomic thumbholes to keep your sleeves firmly in place, while the EVAPOR contains soft-brushed fabric on the inside for an added layer of warmth. That same brushed fabric is also utilized in the Eastbay EVAPOR Cold Weather Tight 3.0, giving you unbeatable comfort with every step. Lastly, the Nike Therma Essential Pants are a must-have to complete your cold-weather running outfit. Nike Therma fabric keeps your body warm by actually shielding you from the elements and trapping heat inside, keeping you insulated.

Those are our picks for conquering the worsening weather, but we have plenty more options to choose from. So whether you’re on the gridiron, pitch, or trail, make sure you grab the clothing you need to stay ahead of your peers.
