First impressions count and so should the first layer in contact with your body. Just as you would take time to choose a piece of rugby kit or rugby boots to improve your performance, the base layer of any rugby player's kit is equally as important in improving performance and protection. In simple terms base layer clothing has been specifically designed to draw moisture away from the body whilst supporting muscles during any level of activity. The resulting effect is greater comfort combined to maximise your performance in any environment.
Already endorsed by leading professional rugby players and athletes, base layer material is extremely light so as to not impede performance or movement no matter what the physical demands.
Each leading sports brand has introduced their own innovative technology including the likes of Under Armour , Canterbury, Skins compression garments, Nike Pro Base and Adidas Tech Fit whilst a new addition to our extensive base layer collection is 2XU, a stellar performer already in the triathlon world.
Warm or Cold
Summer or winter, hot or cold – there is a base layer to suit any climate or playing condition. Our collection of Lovell Rugby base layers include hot gear and cold gear to provide the perfect clothing for any season without compromising performance.
For any serious athlete, the optimum base layer clothing is those that provide compression technology. These include shorts, leggings and shirts designed to be used in any playing condition.
Much of our base layer range incorporates an innovative compression system that helps the muscles work better by providing them with gentle support and protection. This technology leads to enhanced strength and stamina for the athlete, whilst allowing them to work longer with improved performance. Compression clothing can also be worn during or after any sporting activity for increased recovery, essential for enhanced recovery when trying to meet the demands of regular sporting participation.
Athletes of a fashion conscious nature will be delighted by the range of short and long sleeve base layer shirts from Under Armour and Canterbury. Perfect for combining with any additional layers of clothing or to simply stand out on the pitch.
