    I'm looking for some sort of a coat, and could use another pair of sweatpants for tennis. I just want something for when it's windy, and I don't want it to weigh a whole lot or take up a buttload of space in my bag.

    My search has led me to this combo:

    [​IMG] this pic shows those same sweatpants and the jacket that comes with it.


    The whole thing's 85 bucks...but the jacket alone is 55 if i want it individually. My question is, should I look elsewhere, or do you guys think this is cool stuff?

    Pffft, like I'd know
    It's sooo worth it, I bought a similar warm up from Adidas, and it's one of my best apparel choices.

    alright, thanks for the post. I am probably going to wait until it's closer to summer before I buy it.

    probably so it is cheaper and maybe on sale because it is not winter anymore.

    I guess that makes sense lol. I was thinking for the windy days, and it's just nice to have something in the bag in case.

    Way to throw a wrench into things!:mad:....

    My best defense on windy days is a set of sweats like those that stop the wind, but I also like to have a synthetic long underwear top on under my t-shirt/polo. It's not bulky like a cotton sweatshirt and doesn't absorb sweat, so it's just the perfect layer for these conditions. I'm a fan of Patagonia Capilene, but there are plenty of options out there.

    Good find on the sweats, btw.

    When it's really cool (38-40 F), the longie bottoms under those pants are perfect and a warm fleece/synthetic hat that also won't absorb sweat it really handy to have in the bag.

    Funny way how I found them, actually. They're from a cosplay store. They are actually pretty high quality though, so I can justify the money.

    They are made to look like this:

    sorry for the wicked awful quality on the second one...got em from youtube screenshots.

    LOL was waiting for someone to catch me on that. Screw cosplay...that's just over the top. Anime is great and I like watching it, but there's a line between that and cosplaying.


    I was looking for hats on ****...and saw the echizen one for 7 bucks. I bought it for a friend of mine (she loves prince of tennis for some reason...even though she doesn't like tennis), and then I saw the uniforms. All the school ones looked gay (was disappointed in seigaku's) but the senbatsu (national team) ones are awesome.


    And yeah, they're REALLY sponsored by yonex. Their logo is all over the place lol.
