NFL Equipment Training Camp Tee


As a football fan, one of the things I do every year is buy new logo apparel and jerseys at the beginning of the season so I can cheer on my favorite teams in style. In keeping with that tradition, I purchased an Alex Smith replica jersey and a Reebok NFL Equipment Training Camp T-shirt about a month and a half back. I already reviewed the Smith jersey, so now here’s a quick review of the Training Camp tee.

The Training Camp tee is a long-sleeved t-shirt made of a 60% cotton/40% polyester blend, and features the team’s full name (e.g. Chicago Bears), the word “Equipment”, color logo, and the NFL Equipment shield. There’s also a Reebok logo on the left sleeve.

After six weeks of use, I have to say that this is one of the best long-sleeve t-shirts I’ve ever purchased. I know sounds a bit strange to talk about a t-shirt in this way, but that’s the whole point of a review, isn’t it? There are noticeable differences between this Training Camp tee and others I’ve bought, which I’ll list for you here.

  • Pre-shrunk material that actually retains its size after repeated washings and dryings.
  • Durable cuffs and collar that don’t stretch out of shape with regular use.
  • Simple (yet cool) design that will never look outdated.
  • Team issue shirt that players actually wear during camp.
  • Generous cut makes the garment roomy and comfortable.

My Chicago Bears Training Camp tee has become an instant favorite. I can wear it with jeans, with sweats, under my jersey, or even to bed. It’s completely comfortable, looks great, and was well worth the $24.99 I paid for it. In fact, I’m thinking of buying a couple more for some of the other teams I like because it really is an awesome shirt!
