Mitre’s base layers have been professionally designed, crafted and produced to boost performance on the pitch and speed up recovery off the pitch, as well as maintaining the right body temperature whilst playing sports. Mitre sells more than a football base layer; it is also beneficial to wear some form of compression layer whilst playing rugby, netball and other high intensity sports.
No matter which sport you play, a base layer should be an integral part of your kit; in the same way you would always wear your shin pads, for example. One of the main reasons a base layer is so important is that so many sports have seasons in the UK which run throughout the coldest months of the year, meaning that maintaining your body temperature at a comfortable level is vital.
Mitre is famous for its links to grass roots football, and since it was founded in 1817, all of our footballs have been designed and created to maximise accuracy and control, no matter who is playing. Similarly, with our base layers, Mitre wants the wearer to feel supported, comfortable and at the ideal core temperature in order to perform at the top of their game.
Our Neutron Compression Base Layer top and shorts make the perfect combination for those playing high energy sports; the strong poly-elastane material boosts circulation, which reduces lactic acid build-up, meaning you are able to play for longer. Furthermore, the flatlock seams minimise skin abrasion for a closer, flexible fit, meaning players can train and play to the max, and the mesh ventilation keeps the body cool and comfortable.
Whether you train and play sports regularly, or you are thinking of getting into a new sport, ensure that part of your training and sportswear includes a baselayer to maximise performance, speed up recovery and keep you on top of your game, every single time.
