OUTDOOR HOODIES - COMFORT AND FUNCTIONALITY UNDER ONE HOOD
Put simply, a hoodie is a sweatshirt with an attached hood - in other words, a hooded pullover. The English term hoodie is derived from the integrated hood, which gives the garment its succinct name. In the course of the 1970s, hoodies found their deserved attention in the clothing industry - thanks to Sylvester Stallone in Rocky! The sporty look, diverse designs with or without zips and the use of breathable materials make the hoodie an indispensable companion. Indoors, they are also used as a short-sleeved version. In addition to the hood, typical design features include a high-cut collar that effectively protects the neck area, as well as cuffs at the hem and sleeve ends.
COTTON, MICROFIBRE OR POLYESTER - WHICH MATERIALS ARE SUITABLE FOR SPORTS?
In the Keller Sports online shop you will find the right clothing and equipment for every occasion. The materials of your sportswear are essential for the success of every workout, because not all hoodies are the same. Different sports require different materials.
Lifestyle & light workouts
The classic hoodie is usually made of cotton and many models have a kangaroo pocket. The natural fibres feel pleasant on the skin, are breathable and robust. They are therefore ideal for a long hike, a relaxed bike ride through nature or an extended walk in the cold. On particularly cold days, brushed hoodies on the inside provide extra cosiness and warmth. The raised fabric fibres effectively trap the air heated by your body and protect you from the cold. If you are planning a sweaty session, cotton is less recommended. The fibres quickly absorb a lot of moisture, but release it only slowly. The material therefore takes a relatively long time to dry.
Outdoor, training & running
Do you love strenuous workouts and do you like to go all out? Lightweight and climate-regulating fabrics like microfibre and polyester/elastane blends are used here. The functional hoodies protect you during daily jogging and are characterised by their pleasant wearing comfort. The low weight of the textiles ensures the necessary freedom of movement. Keys, fitness trackers and mobile phones can be stored in space-saving pockets on the sides. Quick-drying high-tech fibres and models with a full-length zip also ensure optimal moisture and ventilation management. So you won't start sweating too quickly.
OUTDOOR HOODIES: MIDLAYER FOR COLD TEMPERATURES
When the mountain and the ski slopes are calling, nothing can stop you. True winter sports fans who don't let rain, cold and wind stop them benefit from the midlayer principle: the baselayer usually consists of moisture-regulating functional or merino underwear. For the midlayer, you reach for a hoodie made of warming fleece or breathable microfibre fleece. The elastic functional textiles allow you optimal freedom of movement even during complex movements. They also protect you from external influences and insulate your upper body effectively. With a weatherproof outdoor jacket as an outer layer, you can get through any weather.
