Why wear a base layer?
The base layer is a snug fit to keep in your body heat. In winter, it will be your best ally for fighting the cold and training comfortably. It needs to be a tight fit so that draughts don't get in. The base layer's stretchy fabric lets you move freely. The fabric wicks away perspiration so you can train without feeling sticky.
What makes the R500 long-sleeved base layer so good for rugby?
This base layer is designed to meet rugby needs. Its seams have been reinforced to withstand pulling and tackling. The main fabric has also been specially selected for this purpose. It can stretch but remains sturdy when pulled and won't get damaged when scraped during training. We have also added silicone bands on the sleeves. It gives a grippy helping hand when catching the ball.
