About Adidas Volleyball Apparel 

The official apparel brand for all USA Volleyball teams, the line of Adidas volleyball uniforms, particularly their popular Adibody compression shorts have a combination of polyester/spandex blended materials.

These materials, exclusively developed by Adidas are a microfiber fabric called Climalite. 

Before you ask, let me give you the 411 on what I understand this term to mean. 

"Clima" is one of the trademarked Adidas apparel systems which include the Cool, the Lite, the Warm and Proof technologies.

As far as Adidas volleyball uniforms and competitive athletic wear are concerned the three technologies I mention below are the ones you most commonly see used in their spandex shorts.

ClimaCool is an integrated system of technologies that work together to regulate the volleyball player's body temperature. 

Adidas also utilizes climaCool as a cooling system in their footwear.

ClimaLite fabric is designed to pull sweat away from the skin to the outer fabric face for quick evaporation. 

ClimaLite is supposed to enhance the body's natural temperature regulation.

In other words, Climalite is an Adidas water-wicking technology designed with cotton threads on one side of the fabric and synthetic fibers on the inside that work to wick moisture from the skin to the fabrics surface for easy evaporation.

ClimaWarm works as a lightweight, breathable insulation that keeps the volleyball player dry and comfortable in cold weather conditions.

Got it? Good. Because I didn't until just a few minutes ago.

In the Adidas volleyball spandex shorts line, the Adibody compression shorts are a great example of how the company incorporates one of their trademarked apparel systems called Climalite into specific items within their volleyball apparel line

In several styles of Adidas volleyball shorts, the company uses Climalite, described as an Adidas water-wicking technology designed with cotton threads on one side of the fabric and synthetic fibers on the inside that work to wick away moisture from the skin to the fabrics surface for easy evaporation. 

Cool, right?
