Ice-skating trainer

As a ice-skating trainer, I am very enthusiastic about the new thermal shirt from Knapman. The shirt has Merino wool, which makes it feel wonderfully warm and comfortable in addition to the back support.

The shirt is really special. If you put it on, your attitude changes immediately. It gives support to your entire torso and provides a compact feeling. You can feel the back pressure at the lower back and give a pleasant strengthening feeling at your back.

As a trainer, I spend many hours on the ice to guide skaters. Thanks to the new shirt I have much less problems with my back and the cold. And although I am allergic to wool, the Merino wool did not give an itchy rash after wearing!

I would recommend the new shirt to any skating coach, trainer or trainer! But of course also every skating enthusiast!

Ski instructor, Il Primo Bergen

"As ski instructor, mainly in Holland, I’m very enthousiastic about the Knapman thermoshirt (Knapman wool).

The shirt is very comfortable and the back support definitely supports, even for someone who has no complaints in this area. Above all, the shirt keeps you warm, especially the lower back, where skiers often complain about. The length of the shirt is longer than comparable shirts and because of the perfect fit it is ideal for skiers.

I spend many hours on the outdoor ski range giving lessons to skiers of all levels and in Holland this also means under very changeable weather conditions.

Wearing the specially designed Knapman wintersport shirt was a welcome surprise for me.

Comfortable, warm, supportive, optimal freedom of movement and it looks fantastic. Congratulations Knapman!"
