We recently got an Adidas Trofeo Training Jacket to test from SoccerPro.com. We’d like to extend our thanks to them for sending us this great piece of clothing – it’s a great addition to anybody’s gearbag.
As it starts to get chilly up here, you definitely need a training jacket of some sort if you’re going to be doing any sort of serious playing. I’ve put this jacket through its paces over the last month or so, testing its durability, comfort, breathability, and warmth. So far, it’s scored very high marks on each of these.
In terms of durability, there hasn’t been as much as a misplaced thread on the jacket in the month that I’ve been wearing it. I wear it at least 5 days a week when I run in the morning, and at least a couple more days of the week when I’m warming up before playing soccer or going for another run. As of right now, the Trofeo jacket scores perfect marks for durability.
The jacket is also very comfortable. The material is soft and doesn’t rub up against the skin, scraping it up (like some other jackets I’ve owned). Even though the neck goes up high, it hasn’t been causing any sores on my neck, which is a very welcome change. The jacket runs a bit large, so if you’re on the bottom end of a size, order one size down.
The Adidas Trofeo training jacket has a perfect mix of sealing in warmth while still remaining breathable. It isn’t something I’d wear in the depths of winter or the height of summer, but for fall and spring training sessions, it’s just about perfect. The jacket doesn’t cause lots of sweat to build up, thanks to the good breathability, but it also managed to keep me very warm during the early sessions when I needed it most.
I think that the jacket has a very classic Adidas design, which I appreciate. The material is slightly glossy, which I don’t love, but other than that, the design is solid. It has a couple nice, big pockets which are very convenient as well. It also comes in several colors, which gives you some nice options.
The only complaint I have about this jacket is that sometimes the zipper starts to go down when I’m sprinting or jumping up and down – but other than that, I can’t say anything else bad about the Trofeo.
All in all, the Adidas Trofeo Training Jacket is a great piece of equipment that anybody who deals with even a little bit of chilliness can use. It’s comfortable, breathable, and keeps you warm – what more could you ask for?
