Annually Volleyball Magazine, puts Warm-ups to the test, checking on Overall quality, Moisture control, Durability, Appearance, Material and Movement-Flexibility. Cheer Factor was compared to the likes of Reebok, Nike, Mizuno, Asics, Champion and Russell Athletics.

The Editor Comments:

  1. The material is a major positive. Not only does it give the suit a good look, but it is also practical as well in terms of flexibility, warmth and moisture retention.
  2. The hood on the jacket is something I really like. It makes it a jacket that can be used indoors and outdoors.
  3. I like the fact the company custom designs the suits to meet the requirements of each user. That would be a strong selling point with schools and clubs.
