The Tracksmith Trackhouse Sweatshirt is a heavyweight pullover thick enough to ward off chilly winds after a workout when you’re still cooling off and can forego a jacket. Adding to its utility are the smartphone pocket within the larger hand-warming kangaroo pocket and side gussets, cuffs, and hem.
This cotton and polyester sweatshirt won me over with its comfort and versatility. I’ve worn it several days a week all winter. Most often I’ve worn it around the house when the thermostat was down while working from home. That way, it’s already on when I venture out for sunny midday walks and getting to and from outdoor exercise. At night, I’d keep it on as my casual midlayer under a puffy jacket.
The iPhone pocket actually held my smartphone in place and didn’t feel like it was weighing me down. And the larger handwarmer pocket lived up to its name. Of note: The maroon color shown here is an earlier version, so check Tracksmith for updated colors.
This is certainly priced well above a standard cotton sweatshirt, but the heavyweight aspect made up for that the first time I was blasted with winds after a workout. Anyone who likes a little luxury in their athleisure, especially Tracksmith devotees, will find utility and a lot of comfort here.
