First, on any coach’s mind, is the price. In general, Fila, Kappa, Diadora, and Adidas all of reasonably priced suits. Once you narrow down your choices to the features that you want, definitely give the price a look. While a $10 difference in price per suit may not see like a huge difference, when you’re buying them for an entire team, that could be an extra couple hundred dollars. A relatively easy solution to this dilemma is to ask the players if they’d prefer the more expensive suits to pay the difference.
Next thing to look at is the warmup suit or jacket material. Most suits come in either water-resistant nylon, like a windbreaker, cotton, or fleece. While the nylon seems good because it’s water-resistant, you’ll still get wet if there’s a downpour, and they like to snag and tear easily, too. Cotton warmup jackets by Diadora, Kappa, and Fila tend to be the best because they are somewhat water-resistant (aren’t all clothes?) and they are durable enough not to tear easily.
Once you pick those two, all you have left is the color! Just make sure you get your school colors and you’ll be fine! Regardless of what you decide, you’ll look great on the field with new Diadora, Kappa, or Fila jackets / warmup.
