NEW NIKE HYPERWARM SHIELD BASELAYER RANGE

It’s no secret – Winter is Coming, just ask Ned Stark.

Whilst there’s plenty of positives about playing in the cooler months of the year, having a good baselayer certainly makes it that little bit easier to leave your warm bed and hit the pitch on a frosty morning, and the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield range look to be some of the best you can buy.

Nike’s Hyperwarm range last season was one the best new pieces of kit we managed to get our hands on (that wasn’t a pair of football boots, of course!) and just in time for winter, Nike have re-vamped their temperature-controlling gear.

Building off last year’s model that provided targeted ventilation where you need it, the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield range is all about giving you all you need to take your mind off the weather and let you focus on the game.

The centrepiece of the Nike Hyperwarm Shield collection is the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield mock, a long-sleeve, mock-neck baselayer that you’ll start to see the likes of Wayne Rooney and Wesley Sneijder start to break out over the coming months.

How does it step up from last year?

Well, the marquee addition is an incredible new finish to the sleeves, dubbed DWR (Durable Water Resistance) that repels water on the forearms of the jersey, which should be most welcome by the many players who wear their baselayer with a short-sleeve jersey.

Rather than being an additional layer, the DWR finish is just that, a special treatment that the fabric goes for, meaning the Nike Hyperwarm Shield mock is a much lighter undergarment than many competitive baselayers.

Couple that with Dri-Fit Mesh in the areas that you need it most (back, underarm and inside the elbows), flat-seam stitching for comfort and a body-skimming fit; not only does the Nike Hyperwarm Shield mock look the absolute business, it’s likely to be comfortable enough so as not to distract you whilst playing.

Completing the range is the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield Slider.

Absolutely essential if you’re going to go 100% on a slightly frozen pitch, the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield Slider is designed to lock in place and prevent friction burns when you go to ground.

An anti-friction film coats elasticated panels that naturally move with the motion of the legs (but will never bunch up) hold the shorts in place, even when you’re sliding. The panels soften the impact when you land and prevent the rest of the Nike Hyperwarm Shield Slider being dragged up your leg.

Team that with additional film panels that reduce friction on the inner thigh, full ventilation panels throughout the key areas of the middle of the short and Dri-Fit equipped material throughout the rest of the shorts, and the Nike Hyperwarm Shield Slider looks like another winner from the American brand.

What brand of baselayer do you use? How do you think the new Nike Hyperwarm Shield stacks up to the competition?

    I have the hyperwarm baselayer from last year, and it truly is excellent. It keeps me warm even in below-freezing temperatures but doesn’t let me sweat too much. It keeps you at just the right temperature. If you sweat too much in the cold, you can get sick.
