Tracksuits – high functionality and perfect comfort
“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants.” This is a quote by Karl Lagerfeld on German television. But don’t worry, even worldwide popular fashion designers may be wrong from time to time. Today, a tracksuit is a must-have for every amateur and pro sportsman as it offers various advantages. Furthermore – and this might be surprise to good old Karl and his fashion victims – even tracksuits can be an eye-catcher. Have a look at our low-priced tracksuits of high-quality brands at our online shop.
Tracksuits are made of which fabrics?
A tracksuit consists of pants and jacket and are usually used outdoor. It’s sportswear – and so it has to meet certain requirements: High-class tracksuits have a special design to offer best protection from wind, rain and cold. Besides the weather aspects, tracksuits have to take especially care of the sweat produced by the sports person. So, the fabric has to be breathable. Clothes made of cotton soak up sweat like a sponge – an unwanted feature for tracksuit pants and jackets. Some of the most breathable fibres used for tracksuit pants and track jackets are:
- a mixture of synthetic fibres with a small amount of cotton or merino wool (to improve the wearing comfort)
All these fabrics drain sweat and support your body’s temperature regulation. They keep you from dangerous heat accumulation or evaporative heat loss. Often, the synthetic fibres of these fabrics are dirt-repellent as well as more scrub-resistant and tearproof than their natural counterparts. You’ll benefit from all these advantages even after numerous –carried out correctly – washings. Just stick to the label instructions to take care of your new tracksuits.
Tip: If the proportion of polyester is very high, your tracksuit is especially heard-wearing as polyester is an extraordinary light- and weather-resistant fibre. We also recommend tracksuits made of microfibre (a combination of polyester and polyamide). This fabric is especially light-weighing but protects you from the cold very well.
What tracksuits have to deal with
We already mentioned some of the functions tracksuits have to fulfil: They have to be scrub-resistant, tearproof, weather-resistant and breathable. The last-mentioned feature is great in order to wear your tracksuit during or after your workout. You prefer t-shirts and shorts? No problem, simply slip into your tracksuit after your training and make sure your body doesn’t get cold.
Tip: Studies show that if you wear functional sportswear – tracksuits definitely are – you’ll avoid aching muscles after your workout or your competition. By wearing a tracksuit you’ll keep your muscles warm and therefore there are less pulled muscles.

Tracksuit versus presentation suit
As you might have already noticed, football players and other sports men and women wear their tracksuits not only for functional reasons but also to show some kind of team identification. Matching prints or logos demonstrate their team spirit. In this case, one speaks of presentation suits. These suits offer a loose cut and are rather made to go to the sports field and not for exercising. If you want to exercise you’ll definitely need a tracksuit not a presentation suit. No matter which functional suit you’ll go for, all of them offer typical features – forget Mister Lagerfeld’s malicious remarks!
