Posted by Jeffrey Pape on

Wrestling equipment is essential to performance on the mat. At its best, the right wrestling shoeswrestling singlets, wrestling uniforms, headgear, and other equipment helps wrestlers achieve optimal performance. The wrong kind will seriously constrict or be uncomfortably loose, which will limit your wrestler's ability to achieve take downs and other wrestling maneuvers.

There are many things to consider when considering when buying a wrestler's singlet. Here are the integral aspects to keep in mind before shopping for a singlet.

  • Comfort- This is the most important dynamic to a wresting uniform. The goal is to feel as little clothing as possible. Singlets are available to fit all shapes and sizes, from small-sized singlets for kids to adult heavy weights. Pay close attention to the sizing and make sure you purchase the best-fitting singlet. One that fits nice and snug will offer optimal flexibility and mobility.
  • Price- It might seem like a good idea to buy a singlet based just on price. However, with a lower price also comes lower quality. And if you purchase a quality singlet from a company like Cliff Keen, then you could actually save money in the long run since these singlets last 3 to 5 years as opposed to cheaper, lower-quality brands.
  • Style- Since singlets are most often times customizable, there are tons of styles and designs to choose from. The singlets color scheme will depend on a team's colors, but the print can be completely unique. It's always a good idea to have the prints approved by a coach before you order. If your wrestler is going to wrestle solo, then the sky is the limit. Play around with different ideas to see what works best for your wrestler.
