Badger Sport Introduces Innovative Stock Performance Apparel Line

Industry News • August 16, 2022

STATESVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA (August 16, 2022) – Badger Sport introduced an innovative line of stock performance apparel called Sweatless™ Get a Grip™. This exclusive “two-in-one” design features lightweight sweatband panels sewn into key action areas of performance garments in order to provide athletes with superior grip, eliminating the need for a complimentary towel. 

“In our work with athletes, we saw that grip is so important in competition; players are constantly reaching for towels to wipe their hands,” said Ginny Gasswint, SVP Product Development for Badger Sport. “Why not include sweatbands as part of the garment? Any sport that involves throwing or catching a ball, or gripping a racquet or bat benefits. When we tested with players, they loved the feature.”

Athletic performance gear wicks sweat away from the skin. This critical feature keeps athletes lightweight and cool, but does not allow for hands to be wiped off mid-game. Sweatless™ incorporates absorbent micro-terry panels so hands can be kept clean and dry for no-slip grip. The lightweight panels are placed in key strategic locations so players can quickly wipe their hands or brow without breaking their momentum. 

The collection features an athletic-cut tee, long-sleeve and short in the six most popular team colors. Sweatless will be available in mid-August to team dealers and their customers, nationwide.

“Badger has a proud history of making innovation available to teams of all levels, coupled with the relentless quantity testing of our proprietary performance lab,” added Jeff Fulp, Director of Quality Assurance for Founder Sport Group. “Sweatless is the latest example of our mission — quality apparel accessible to all at the speed of sport.”

Badger Sport is part of Founder Sport Group, a supporter of the NSGA Management Conference & Team Dealer Summit.
