Looking for a warmup jacket
=== UPDATE ===
For some reason my original post was cut off when composing with Tapatalk iPhone app (sorry about that).
I've now added the rest of what I tried to write the fist time. Hopefully now it makes more sense.

Hey all.

This is my first winter in the US (and my first 30 degree winter possibly ever!) so I'm after some recommendation for a lightweight jacket to wear during warmup and/or play.

I quite like the jacket Federer was wearing after his match with Tomic, but at $130 it's a bit steep. In saying that I really like the zip front, zip pockets, and high collar (for when I ride my bike to the courts), so I'd be willing to pay the steep price for these features unless you have another suggestion which fits the bill. The plainer the better; not a big fan of logos and prints, which attracted me to Fed's jacket in the first place.

Thanks for any help!

Yes, its even been full warmup jacket weather in SCal so far this winter. As far as Dallas, its also mandatory attire as well as playing some indoors when too cold.

I scored a Nadal N90 jacket for christmas. Its really warm (needed in the uk) i managed to stay warm in -1c. Well recommended!

+1. First winter I remember having to wear warm-up pants and layers on top - and never finishing in just short sleeves (I play at dawn). First 10-15 minutes are tough when its 43. I've taken to putting my rackets up front with me on the drive to the courts to get some heat in the strings and grip. :)

Hey Dave_D. I have one of the N98s Aussie rugby version. It's what I use at the moment and I agree it's pretty good. I have just purchased another N98 non-Rafa version (black with red zipper) from Teh Bay. Unfortunately TW only has the Rafa versions, and I suspect TW've been deleting the post I keep trying to put up with links to plain N98 jackets.

Hopefully this non-link version will remain:


Well, I've found:
- Nike non-Rafa version of the N98,
- Nike old skoolish GX warm up jumper.

The N98 is exactly the same as my Aussie rugby jumper, which I use currently. Anyone have the GX and can report back?

I also had a look at the new Adidas jacket (TW link) which I liked the style and loved the weight of (it's super light!), I disliked the colour (sadly typical for me).

Hmmm....supposed to be 81 in Austin today :) . I reckon we've got a bit of winter still to go. Apologies to those in the frigid areas of the US. ;)

Yeah, it's been a mild 60–65 this week in Houston, but in my very limited four month experience of this city, it could drop to 10 on the weekend :)

Hey did you ever get that RF jacket you posted the link to?

bkpr 04-30-2013 05:22 AM

No, I bought a black N98 jacket from The Bay. Does the job. It's very plain design, just black with red zippers.

Lukhas 04-30-2013 05:47 AM

Any sweater or tracksuit upper does the trick for me.

CivicLx 04-30-2013 08:32 AM

Nice:). I was going to email you but I can't:-?

bkpr 04-30-2013 04:03 PM

I see, you have one for sale I assume?

The N98 jacket is a good midweight offering for warming up or streetwear for the morning and evening cool in a moderate climate. I wouldn't rely on it for cold weather warmth - the cold will definitely be felt.

Adidas makes great warmups, also look into track jackets, they are the cost effective warmup jackets.

CivicLx 04-30-2013 04:46 PM

Actually I don't but I do have an offer for you Email me if you get a chance
