If you are watching tonights game, Tom Brady is wearing a T1 First Wave under his jersey. It is cut just above the elbow. How do I know? Because we sold it to him and I keep seeing it under his jersey and the navy blue shirt he has on.

But the story gets better. After he bought one just a little over a week ago before the Bears game, 3 other players from the Patriots ordered them.

....and the story gets better, Matt Cassel from the Chiefs ordered one for his cold weather games.

If you are watching the game, pay close attention to his right arm. Every now and then the you can a he has on something black as his base layer, and you can see the First Wave logo as the navy blue shirt he has on creeps up a bit.

I noticed that. I knew Brady wore a wetsuit, but, did not give it much thought.

However, last week, in Chicago, it looked like he was wearing one with an attached cap. Also, last week his arms were exposed and there was no writing on the arms. Was that one of your custom creations?

Why is a wetsuit good for playing football in cold weather?

Very cool regardless...

It is very warm and the T1 is very flexible.

Cool- I'm sitting here doing my normal Sunday night, Monday night thing. Laptop on lap, on Slowtwitch (although I'm loaded with fasttwitch) and watching football. So I'm watching Brady, and I own a T1, so that's cool !.....hum, might start wearing mine when I fish during December and January.

He had it on last week too. His arms were not exposed. The photo below is from that game. But last week he had on this over it Polypro Hooded Pullover over the wetsuit. How do I know? Because I sent it to him too.

I meant the wetsuit arms were exposed and i did not see the T1 logo. Now it makes sense when you show that he wearing the hoodie over it. Cool!

So, should I wear my T1 First Wave in Lambau Field next Sunday afternoon when the Packers host the Giants? ;-)

I love it, thanks for posting this article. And it comfirms my claim. The other three players to buy T1 First Pullovers were the kicker, the punter, and the long snapper. They bought them from Fastsplits in Newton Mass. Linda called me when they were in the store.

The story gets better....for Brady, this is his second T1. His first was given to him by a Patriots trainer who happened to have done triathlons. Brady loved it. The year Brady was injured he loaned it to Matt Cassel. Well Cassel went to KC, so he was without that wetsuit. They are still good friends.

It keeps you warm in cold weather if you are not breaking a sweat. Think about it. He is not running very much, so it keep him warm without getting sweaty and clammy underneath. I told their trainer that it would work well for any player that is not running much....which is why their kicker, punter and long snapper all bought them.

You should! I have an employee who rides to work early mornings here in San Diego. After Brady bought his wetsuit, he rode his bike to work one morning in a Speedvest. It was about 18 miles, but he said it worked really well. Not sure I would do that unless it were really cold.

Looks like Brady covered his arms for the second half of tonight's game. Looks like he put a long sleeve shirt on over his wetsuit. Poor little Tommy must have gotten cold while the back-up QB, Matt Flynn was leading the Pack down the field for a touchdown!

Emilio, you are the MAN.
I may have to start wearing my T1 as a fashion statement as well as for solidarity (Brady went to my HS)

Nice one! I have no idea what high school that was. Can you share?

It looks like he decide to rock a long sleeve for the 4th quarter, so no more sightings of the First Wave tonight.

I teach kids XC skiing on really cold days and at times I am skiing and working hard, but other times I am standing around and talking/instructing technique etc....have thought in the past about cutting off an old wetsuit top to store body heat, but now I'm tempted to give it a go!
