There are six major volleyball apparel manufacturers who have produced player uniform pieces, some for generations and some only most recently after years of producing apparel for other sports.

After generations of being sponsored by the Mizuno Volleyball brand, USA Volleyball and Adidas signed the biggest womens volleyball apparel deal in the history of volleyball, a multi-year and multi million dollar deal which makes Adidas the official apparel brand for the sport in the United States.
Adidas became the Official Sponsor of USA Volleyball in 2017 which means they will exclusively furnish, dress and outfit the following teams with Adidas uniforms and USA volleyball apparel, accessories, lifestyle clothes and shoes:

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 womens volleyball uniforms and mens 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.
Adidas has committed to using only recycled plastic in its products by 2024 https://t.co/pVdBwiLyZl pic.twitter.com/rrGIHhqcfK— CNN (@CNN) July 16, 2018
